“The perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

to quote their brochure "contemporary, spacious, stylish and luxurious lakeside apartments" is an understatement. They enjoy superb spectacular lake and mountain views. We can't speak too highly of these wonderful apartments. Just believe what they say on their website and you won't be disappointed. Pricey but worth it. Stay at least one more night than you originally intend, you won't regret it.

ignore comment below about fitness centre, they don't have one and I entered review in error and couldn't clear it

Room Tip: ask for upper floor, they have marginally better views

These guys made our honeymoon stay perfect. Great value for money and the jaccuzzi was a very appreciated surprise!

Everything is walking distance and the bars and restaurants around are great.

Will surely return once we have kids :)

Spent 4 nights in Queenstown and made a stop over in Wanaka and wow were we impressed. Wanaka was just as gorgeous and QT but less hustle and tourists... definitely worth a couple night stay or longer. About the hotel, the rooms are pricey but very home-y and lots of space for I would suspect great for families. We had the 1 bedroom that faced the pool and lake. Kitchens are very well stocked with utensils, laundry in-room, big dining area, plenty of space, big balcony, so you can really stretch out and make yourself at home. Again, our stay was for merely 24 hours so can't write on and on but one thing we did was forget our credit card at the hotel. The owner, Gary, called us a couple of time and when we called him back a few hours away from Wanaka, he agreed to mailed my credit card over to our hotel in Auckland free of charge. Great service, friendly owner-operators... the Kiwi way. Best - Steve and Dana

Room Tip: We had the room on the second floor facing the pool and lake which was very good and spacious.

This was a great two night stay, should have stayed more. Great Pool! Friendly Owners. Grocery store is just around the corner. Private laundry and drying rack, nice deck, huge apartment. We would stay here again, but it's a little pricey.

Room Tip: Level 2 is level with the parking area.

Stayed three nights. The apartments are wonderful particularly if you are only a couple. They have three bedrooms, but if you are just a couple the two bedrooms at the rear are locked. These bedrooms have no view. The good sized main bedroom has a super view over the lake. The bathroom is very nice. The lounge is large and the kitchen area is also a generous size and the view is the same as the bedroom. The balcony is large and you look down onto the heated pool which is excellent. Each apartment has a single garage. Very difficult to find any fault and we would like to return.

We stayed four nights. The apartment was very spacious, beautifully clean, and well maintained. It was fully equipped and serviced daily. The shower room was spacious and had twin wash basins and a large shower which worked well. There was a large balcony equipped for eating outside or lounging in the sun. The apartment was assigned an individual garage for the car.

The pool area at the front looked clean and well maintained though we did not use it. There were two gas barbecues.

The apartment could not have been better situated being only yards from restaurants and shops. It wasn't cheap but it was first class.

2nd time staying and blew us away again. Stunning location, lovely efficient staff, well appointed clean rooms right by town and the lake. Couldn't want for more. Great to have a swimming pool and really well set up for couples or families with kids. They have a lift which is really handy. And a parking garage for each apartment. We will be back!
