Vacation Villas
Reviewed March 11, 2013

This was our first visit to Queenstown and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Our studio apartment was lovely, very modern, clean with everything we needed, right on the lake front.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Vacation Villas and we hope to be returning again soon.

It was our first time using 'Vacation Villas' and we would highly recommend it to any one looking for accomodation in Queenstown. David was excellent to comminicate with and very helpful. We stayed at 5 Wakatipu Heights. Although this property is not new it was ideal for our requirments. We had great lake views it is only a short walk to the city and had a bbq we made full use of. We will definatly use "Vacation Villas" for our future stays in Queenstown.

It is the second time we have used Vacations Villas and we will book again with them. David is very obliging and friendly. The first near new house we rented was perfect, with amazing Lake views and walking distance to the city. The second time, I left it a little later to make a booking and could not get the same one. David offered alternative ones and was very honest in their description. Our choice was an older house but very clean, almost same location just as he described. We can highly recommend their service.

Room Tip: Make sure you book early. The houses get booked up very quickly!

We booked 40B the Studio Unit. David was easy to deal with and for international visitors, there is pay online option making it convenient. Views of the lake from that unit is good. Studio & toilet is clean, comfortable bed nicely made. Clear tv reception. There's a bbq at the balcony but we did not use it as there are plenty of restaurants close by. Vacation Villa is only a very short drive from the airport. We were given specific instructions on where to park but our spot was parked by someone else and we have no idea who, so that was the only little problem we encountered.

We had a great stay, the house had amazing views and everything we needed. There was plenty of space and the beds were really comfortable.
We will definately use Vacation Villas again when we are next in Queenstown.

We had a pleasurable stay and David was fabulous to deal with, both in communication leading up to our stay and during our time in the house. A great house, very clean and tidy with fantastic views over the lake. Great service, lovely amenities and super easy. We are already thinking about our next stay. Thanks for a great stay David!

This was our 2nd visit, having stayed here many years ago and as we liked it so much then we decided to come back.

Handy to town but lovely and quiet. Our hosts David and Susan quick to communicate by email to answer any questions and we had a lovely welcome when we arrived.Everything you need for a family is there, especially privacy and the view are absolutely spectacular!
