We stayed here with two kids (10 and 8) in a two-bedroom apartment. It was nearly flawless. A bit further from town than we would have liked (a ten-minute walk, rather than a five-minute walk), but that was not a problem. Quiet, a bit away from traffic, kids could play in the grass outside the apartment with no supervision. Apartment was clean, functional, light, breezy, modern. Not high-end luxury, but very nice and comfortable, with a perfect two-bedroom layout and a garage for the car. Check-in and out worked without a hitch. We had a corner apartment, facing West, toward town, so our balcony had one of the best views. And the price was very reasonable, as well, for the time of year (New Year) and Queenstown.

“Definitely a 'room with a view'”

I can't fault this apartment. It was everything and more described when I booked it. The location is excellent: fantastic views, well -equipped, modern, clean and in a good neighbourhood near to town.

The icing on the cake was a couple of mince pies left as a welcome (very nice as iwe stayed over the Christmas period).

It made our visit to Queenstown a very memorable one.

“Beautiful apartment 5-10 min walk from the center of town”

I stayed with my husband, parents, and brother in a three bedroom on Panorama Tce. The views from the living room and two of the bedrooms were spectacular. It was a 5-10 min. walk into the center of town from the apartment so easy to get groceries, go out to dinner, book tours, etc.

The staff at Element Escapes were really accommodating in getting us extra towels, extra detergent for the washer, etc. It was a very comfortable, lovely apartment. The only thing that could be challenging if you're a light sleeper is the third bedroom - it didn't have windows but did have skylights, which my brother couldn't cover to keep the light out in the morning.

Overall we loved the apartment and would stay there again if going to Queenstown.

“Apartment with wonderful view and great amenities”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

Stayed here during anniversary holiday in NZ – Andrew had flowers delivered and ensured we were upgraded to a two story on Panorama Terrace with a top-notch view. Thank you for the extra attention!!

The apartment served as a great base for us to explore the area, and had more than adequate space. With a garage, laundry, multiple bedrooms– I could see a large family or couple of families sharing the apartment (note all rooms are on the same floor in the unit we were in). The top floor had wall-to-wall views of the mountains, with a full kitchen, dining and living room area. Remote control fireplace added to the ambiance. Three rooms on the lower level, with two full bathrooms and laundry.

Tips and observations:
- This is a rental apartment, not a hotel, so there is not daily service. We knew this in advance so was not a concern.
- There is no “front desk” – so you will be coordinating access with Andrew. Basically there is a key code by the door to get the apartment key, and all of the information is inside. Plenty of information provided and well organized.

Thought to Element Team
- A few reviews have noticed minor things being “out of order” etc. We had a couple of bulbs out – it may pay to do apartment sweeps to complete the excellent experience.

Thanks again for a wonderful anniversary stay!

Rented a two bedroom upper floor lake view unit for 4 days.The units were modern, well equipped and very comfortable. Queenstown Mall was within a 25 minute walk, however the return trip has some serious uphill sections to Panorama Tce for the less mobile. Another option is to drive about 2 kms to the Queenstown Gardens, park there and walk for around 10 minutes to the Mall.over a generally flat landscape. The upper floor units have a large front patio with great views over Lake Wakatipu..

“Disappointing”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The claims of 'Lake and Mountain Views' could only be said to be true if your definition of lake views includes looking at the back of another apartment. We could only see the lake if we went out onto our balcony, otherwise we were just looking at the rear of the apartment in front of us. This may not have been the case if we were in a different apartment but number 17 definitely can't be said to have lake views.

In addition to the disappointment with the view, we found the kitchen was really ill equipped. It would be fine if you only wanted to make some toast and cereal in the morning but not much good for anything beyond that. It didn't even have a dish cloth to wipe down the benches.

The apartment was over furnished leaving very little space to walk around and certainly not enough space for our children to play. It seemed as though they had tried to cram too much furniture into a small space. Some of the furniture was stained and dirty and the couch was hemorrhaging feathers all over the room. It was also very uncomfortable.

The washing machine was located in the kitchen but there was no clothes drying rack anywhere in the apartment, only a dryer in the garage downstairs. There was no clothes basket provided so there was no logical way to get the wet laundry down to the dryer. Combine this with the fact the washing machine was very noisy it made it very impractical. One night we made the mistake of putting a load of washing on and then sitting down to watch tv. We couldn't hear anything on the tv because the washing machine was so loud and it was in the same room as us.

The bedrooms were at the back of the apartment and were very dark. Additionally, the walls were paper thin so we could hear every word said in the apartment upstairs, at one point the cleaners were vacuuming upstairs and it sounded like it was actually in our apartment.

The in-room safe had been locked by someone else so we couldn't put a code to open it. There was a key to open the safe but we were not comfortable putting our valuables in a safe that someone else had the code for. We tried to call the building manager but the mobile number they had listed on the letter did not work. We called the office and left a message but no one did anything about it. Admittedly we were not able to leave them a phone number they could contact us on (we were traveling from overseas) but we thought they may have been able to send someone over.

All in all we found this apartment very over priced and impractical.

Great place to stay with a family or as a couple. The gas fire place keeps the apartment snug and warm. Heated floors in the bathroom are a luxury for feet in the middle of the night. Comfortable beds and lounge area. Balcony gets the afternoon sun which you want to lap up when it's below 5o C. It's a short drive into town or a 20 min walk (up hill home). The only negative is that the kitchen could be better equipt with more cups, glasses, pots ect if you intend on cooking. The owners were more than welcome to give us another pot when we needed it though.
Also the owner was VERY accommodation when my husband need to stay beyond checkout time due to torn ligaments and a late flight. THANK YOU. Dam that slushy snow!!
