Sensational apartment that exceeded our high expectations. Wonderfully warm, cosy and inviting. Immaculately clean and spacious. As previous reviews have said the view has to be seen to be believed. It is situated right beside the lake and about a 25 minute walk into town on the picturesque lake path. A very tranquil setting in beautiful Queenstown.

We've just spent 3 nights staying with extended family at Villa Del Lago while on a ski trip. The apartment was warm and spacious, with a marvellous view of the lake and mountains. The owner was very friendly and helpful on our arrival and we were impressed at the amenities provided. It is only a quick trip into town for ski rental, dinner etc (although we ordered pizza to be delivered one night!). The rooms were very clean and the linen, pillows, mattresses etc all of a high quality. We slept very well! Also the best shower that we have EVER had in rented accommodation - truly wondrous. A great place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in unit 12, which was 3 bedrooms with several balconies and a lovely view. I think all th...

We booked 2 nights follow positive reviews from TA. Not disappoint at all. Great location, we could spend days just sitting in room looking at view in front of us, you even can see view while you lay down in bedroom.

Great design and very thoughtful. Huge room with couch and dining table. Full kitchen equipments. Love the heather in lounge room. Big and warm bathroom with tub

*We take away Aggy's Fish and Chip and dine in room. Great combination! Why would you spend time and money somewhere else when you have a fabulous view in front of you! Lol

Gorgeous warm tidy apartments, furnished with comfort and everything u need to cook a meal.
Home away from home. Very clean and love coming back to a made up room after a hard day on the snow.
Will def stay here when we visit again.

i am writing this review on behalf of my parents as unfortunately i didn't get to stay here! Excellent value for money. Free wi-fi. Warm, clean and comfortable with the best views on the lakes edge. We booked our holiday accommodation in Queenstown somewhere else as we have a large family and were on a budget. My parents are in 60-70 yr age group and have never travelled overseas so i wanted this to be a perfect experience. I spent hours reading all the reviews before booking them at Vill Del Lago due to all the amazing reviews. they were given the one bedroom room with wheelchair access as i was a bit concerned about all the steps. My parents walked into town most days. Some days they just soaked up the views of the Remarkables from their room. We can honestly say you wont be disappointed! Excellent customer service from Charlotte. She booked our trips to Milford and Doubtful Sound. My mum and dad were well looked after. The staff even came in at night and turned their lights on and warmed the room up ready for their late arrival back from Milford Sound trip. We were so envious and wished we had booked this hotel for ourselves too. Thanks Charlotte for making my mum and dads trip so memorable.

Room Tip: If stairs are a worry or for eldery guests request the room with wheelchair access

Stayed at Villa Del Lago recently for 8 nights, and what a wonderful experience it was! Beautiful accommodation that was even nicer than the photos suggested. Excellent location on the lake with spectacular views, and just far enough out of town to keep the place private and extrememly peaceful! Serviced apartments were also a nice bonus. The owners are also absolutely lovely, and gave us some of the best trip planning advice we could ask for, from dining to tours to activities. Will return here every time we are in Queenstown in future!
