We stayed at Villa Del Lago for one week and would recommend it to our family/friends. The apartment was larger than we expected and very clean. There are wonderful views of the lake with the 2 double glass sliding doors in the living area. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed. Living area has fireplace that produces good heat as the nights got chilly. Nice flat screen T.V. and comfy throw blanket. Heated towel racks in the bathroom was a plus. Each day they exchange bath towels and dish towels. Washer/dryer worked great and they had laundry detergent on site. Nice soft sheets. Only thing they could improve would be softer beds. Beautiful walk ( 20 minutes ) into town. If you prefer taking the local bus, it's only $3 (NZ) and they pick you up on site. Be sure to book all your adventures ( jet boating, Milford Sound, wine tours etc. ) through Villa Del Lago. Same cost and you don't have to stand in line at the "I-sites" ( visitor centers). Also, on most adventures, the coach company will pick you up on site! Claire and her team are so friendly and willing to assist with anything. The location is fantastic if you want a more quiet area with beautiful views. Steep steps down to walking trail. Lower apartments are closer to the trail but still have lake view ( trees, bushes hide some of the view ). Higher apartments have the best view but closer to the street. Each room has own patio with table/2 chairs. Overall, we were very happy with Villa Del Lago and will stay again on our next visit.
