“Couldn't have asked for better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed a weeks stay at Villa del Lago in a modern spacious one bedroom apartment with excellent views over the lake. Owners were magnificently friendly, room cleaned daily, and only a 20minute walk along the lake front to town. Fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom and laundry facilities made this a wonderful stay. Would recommend a stay here to anyone!!!

Loved this property, we had a 3 bedroom apartment that was really a spacious 3 level house. Every room was well furnished spacious and warm. Great bathrooms with underfloor heating, Kitchen was large and well equipped. Views from living areas and lower level bedrooms amazing. There was a queen size bedroom in the loft opening up over the lounge. We were welcomed by very friendly management staff who had already lit the gas log fire in the living area. Location is great if you like to be on the edge of town, there is a lovely lakeside walk from the back of the complex into the centre of town. It takes only a few minutes by car into town.

We had 6 people stay in a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 nights and it was awesome. It was close to the city, had the most amazing view and was a very spacious, comfortable and cosy apartment. The service was faultless as well and made our stay so much more convenient. We could book all our activities from the comfort of our apartment and we were very well looked after. We would definitely want to stay here again when we come back to queenstown. Amazing.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment for 5 days and it was heaps bigger than we were expecting - my 5 year old loved having the extra room to run around. This was the perfect home away from home with a large kitchen, dining area and living area. We stayed in the middle of winter and we never once felt cold while inside so the gas fire definately does its job. The apartments are only a short drive from the town centre. It has amazing views of the lake and mountains. I will definately be visiting queenstown again and I will be staying here!!!

Did expected a lot and it has met all my expectations.
Managed with a lot of love and dedication by the owners and staff.
My 8 year old daughter is still talking about her great babysitting evening with Stephanie.

We had 5 fabulous nights at Villa Del Lago the location is great with wonderful views. The apartments are well appointed and very comfortable, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend Villa Del Lago and will be certainly staying there again.

We spent 5 nights at Villa Del Lago and have to say it is the best view I have had, anywhere I have ever stayed. We would sit on the patio and constantly ask each other, are we millionaires? It is absolutely stunning, but for the price that we paid in comparison with other places in Queenstown, it was a total bargain. The rooms themselves are nice, but not super fancy. They have everything you need though and are comfortable. It is the view that really does it for this place. We were right on the water. There is a path out the front that goes all the way to town and we found it to be a nice 25 minute walk. Good for walking off some of the culinary delights. The driveway in to Villa Del Lago is a little difficult to get around and the stairs a bit steep, but once you get to your room...did I mention how amazing the view was? It was a great base both for walking in to Queenstown and travelling around the region. The hosts were very friendly and service focused. They do care about your stay which is very refreshing compared with some large chains. Our only issue was the insinkerator which was clogged during our stay which made the room smell. Again, the team were very willing to help resolve this issue and make sure it didnt affect our stay. The only other thing was that one day our room was only half made up, not completely re-stocked, supplies door left open and towels left on the patio. This didn't bother us though. The overall stay was magnificent and we would thoroughly recommend this place.

With so many options in Queenstown, we used TripAdvisor to guide our choice and Villa Del Lago ranked number 1.
