We spent 2 nights in queenstown at the Pounamu apartments. They were exactly as described. Beautiful 1 bedroom apt with lakeside views. Spacious bedroom and bath, work area with computer and high speed internet (you can also attach your laptop if you have one). Kitchenette with refrigerator, stove, microwave, etc. Parking spots below in the car park (covered). The place is relatively close to downtown about 10 min. walk we were told. It was bitterly cold when we were there so we drove mostly. In the summer, it's probably nice enough to walk. It's a 3-4 min. drive into downtown. For those who prefer to be closer to downtown and without a car, this would not be the place for you. otherwise, this was great.

Stayed in one bed apartment and certainly worth spending a bit extra for the view of the Lake. Apartment to high specification and luxurious - great base to visit the Queenstown area. Staff very helpful and knowledgable on places to visit / making bookings. Would certainly stay again on any future visits to this part of the world.

Apartment spacious and immaculate, modern very comfortable furnishings, great kitchen, free internet/computer in room a bonus.
Take ear plugs if you're used to quiet nights - quite a bit of road traffic noise outside.

Booked this online as we were driving around new Zealand. Originally planned to stay 2 nights but we extended to 3rd night as we loved it so much. The service was first class and the apartment boasts stunning out of this world views, simply breathtaking! Apartment offers every commodity from laundry powder to unlimited Internet access, every small detail has been accounted for, but should you have any query you are met by exemplary host where nothing is too much trouble,one of the highlights of our stay.

This was really great accomodation to come to & back to (stayed 3 nights) It just had everything, and all top notch. After eating out constantly , it was good to have a kitchen that had all the necessities to cook a decent meal. With the big screen TV and remote control fire, made an "evening in" very attractive. THEN in the morning we would wake to the fantastic views. Having a computer & Email was so very Handy.
We spoke to Managers re booking a couple of attractions and advice they gave us was spot on, also advised us on our travel route and tipped us on acouple of things that we totally enjoyed. Really this was "Choice Bro"

It was a pleasure staying at the Pounamu appartments. Although the property is highly priced as compared to the market but the hosts and the ambiance of the appartments and the property made me feel like home away from home. Every aspect of the stay was made interesting due to the many factoirs like location of the property, all the booking were possible at the reception (even for the adventure sports) for which they offered to charge no extra or any additional comissions or booking costs.

All in all, I will recommend people who do not care about spending but gainig an experience to try this location.
