We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wonderful scenery and the walking track was 50 metres from our room. The layout and the furnishing features were out standing. We were part of a wedding group and we could not fault the service.

We booked this accommodation for 2 nights having explored Trip Advisor and other searches and were very with the choice. From the time of arrival we had a great stay. The reception staff were most welcoming and our largish unit overlooking the lake superbly fitted out, separate bedroom and lounge (with a gas fire - effective and nice ambience). The bathroom is of good size and toiletries first rate. The unit contained a kitchenette if one wished to cater; eating out for us was the preferred option on a holiday sampling the local restaurants. The location is quiet and the views especially at sunset superb as it faces easterly over Lake Wakatipu. Our bed was very comfortable and that plus the quietness and night air made for a great sleep. Would certainly recommend the Villa. One challenging note is the entrance, off the main Frankton Road. Even knowing where the Villa is located, the sharp turn in and the steepness of the drive requires some care. The Villa is located about a 20-minute walk or 5-minute drive out of the CBD area of Queenstown. Views of the lake and mountain ranges in the late afternoon are fantastic and the units have a deck from which you can enjoy the quiet and perhaps sample that wonderful Otago wine.

Room Tip: If you have room 8-9 you have to carry bags down stairs, parking a little way away. Great views howe...

Had a wonderful stay in January 2014 for 7 night. Nick & Charlotte are great hosts. During our stay we were in a couple of Units. The lakefront one bedroom had outstanding views and very handy to the lakeside walkway. The 3 bedroom Villa was very spacious and also had good views. Kitchens in all the Units were very well appointed. We stayed one night in Unit 10 which did not have a great view and is more suited to disability visitors. Only a couple of negatives and that is if you do have mobility issues there are a lot of stairs on site particularly from the lakeside units up but wasn't an issue for us. The other negative was not many Sky channels for my sports mad other half!

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment (an upgrade from a one bedroom) and couldn't have asked for anything else. The kitchen had everything we needed, a comfortable and spacious lounge area and our own washer and dryer. We also had two balconies with amazing views over the lake. Even though it is on the main road into Queenstown you couldn't hear any traffic. Recommended!

This resort has fabulous views of the lake.
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, which had a separate living room and kitchen.
The facilities are extremely modern.
The resort isn't exactly centrally located and is about a 8-10 minute drive from central Queenstown.

Thank you for your review. Google Maps accurately locate Villa del Lago 1.7kms or 4 minutes by car to central Queenstown. Guests are welcome to check this with their smart phones.

Very helpful when checking in, told us some good wineries to go to, nothing was too much bother. Our apartment location was spectacular, could not get much closer to the lake, the most amazing view. Very comfortable well appointed apartment, kitchen & laundry were well outfitted. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, totally loved it & hated to leave here!!

What views! Spacious 3-bedrooms/2 bath. Very comfortable bedding, kitchen pretty well-equipped, washer/dryer. Clean. Easy check-in/out. It's about a 20-25 minute walk to town along the lakefront track, which is quite pleasant (easy to do more than once a day) and drops you right into Queenstown Gardens.
