We have just returned from a week at beautiful Queenstown, staying at Villa Del Lago. I can highly recommend this as upmarket family accomodation.
We travelled with grandparents, so the layout of the apartment was fabulous. They had a downstairs room with ensuite for privacy, the kids had a room at the top of the three-level villa. The villas have a beautiful outlook across the lake to the Remarkables.
The apartment is wonderfully warm, great showers, full kitchen and lots of space. The furniture and fittings are all high quality and tastefully arranged. Unreal gas fireplace and underfloor heating in the bathrooms.
Only drawback is stairs if you are not highly mobile and the parking can be a bit tricky, given the hillside location. A small thing would be an additional toilet upstairs, as our kids sounded like elephants thundering up and down the stairs.
Staff were great and apartments are serviced daily.
We found the apartments were a great distance to town - just follow the path along the lake. The flat walk comes out at the Botanic Gardens and takes about 20 minutes. The huge picture windows from the lounge and bedrooms offer brilliant uninterrupted views. Just five minutes from the airport by car and about the same or less drive into town.
The office has a free dvd collection to keep the kids amused at night and free wifi.
Really good quality accomodation
