Reviewed August 1, 2010

Lyn and Keith were amazingly helpful from the time we walked through the doors and helped us arrange tours to Milford and Doubtful Sounds as well as restaurant recommendations and bookings for things like the Onsens - really made our stay in Queenstown easier and lots of fun.

The rooms are fantastic. The fireplace was lovely and it was great to have a kitchen. The views over the lake to the mountains are just amazing and change all the time. Easy walk along the lake to Queenstown Central but it's unsealed so make sure you have good footwear on - especially if it's been raining, and a torch as it's not lit up at night.

We highly recommend staying here!
Thanks
Kathryn and Jon

What a great place. Everything we were hoping for with the owners Lyn and Keith being more than owners. Even their staff is outstanding, nothing ever a problem and really friendly. I had done alot of study towards our sking holiday and as always you hope the accomadation is just what you plan. Well Villa Del Lago is all this, lovely, clean, and roomy with 3 teenage boys there was plenty of room.The view you can never tire of, and it was great getting back to this comfort after a day at the snow field. Very central to everything, and a lovely stroll into Queenstown by the lake. Thanks to Lyn, Keith and their great staff, excellent memories for us all, Thankyou so much. HOPE TO SEE YOU IN 2011....

Villa Del Lago is located on the main road into Queenstown from the airport. The most stunning feature is the view over the Remarkables. As it was winter the snow vista was amazing against the blue sky. Our 1 bedroom unit was clean and comfortable with a good size kitchen area, laundry and nicely heated bathroom. The gas fireplace was fabulous and the owners were friendly. Unfortunately our unit had a path out the front where people would walk to get down to the lake. This meant keeping the curtains closed and not being able to wake up to the view. Make sure you get a unit without the path in front of it and you won't be disappointed!

What a place, what a view, what a crew!
Just spent 6 nights at this place and cant wait to go back. We had a very tidy & pleasant appartment overlooking the lake. Everything was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Greeted by Keith (owner ) on arrival, escorted to a beautiful 1 bedroom apartment with a fantastic view of " The Remarkable's" mountain range and the lake.
Cosy loungeroom with quality fittings , an expensive bed that I loved, and a patio area.

My wife woke to open curtains and a view out to the mountains with an overnight snow dump.

Cosy and warm, quiet ,quality and a cheery parting at reception from Lynne, the bossette!!

We WILL be back.

I stayed here from Feb. 3. to 6. 2010. The apartment has very high standard, and the view is awesome!

The hosts were very friendly and service-minded. Fully equipped kitchen, beautiful bathroom, and bedroom. There was a big flat-screen HDTV in the living room. Everything about Villa Del Lago was perfect. If (when) I return to Queenstown in the future, there will be no doubt where to stay!

I am so glad the weather turned cool & we decided to cancel our campervan, otherwise we would not have stayed in this fabulous accommodation. I will sum up the qualities as follows: Gorgeous spacious apartments, so comfortable and relaxing, Really cosy with gas fire. The best lakeside views with no road noise. Lovely friendly owners & staff who can't do enough for you. Location was a thirty minute strole out out of town so the cooking facilites were a real bonus. Would definately stay again.
