“WOW!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

This was a great find!! Overlooking the beautiful Lake, in a new, beautifully furnished apartment was a definite treat for the trip. The staff are incredibly accommodating, and I do believe it would be hard to get better than this place in Wanaka.

We loved our stay at the Lakeside Serviced Apartments. From the minute we walked in, we were happy - huge apartment, lovely modern decor and SO CLEAN!! We stayed in apartment 201, which is on the corner and had fabulous views over lake Wanaka, the playground and the snow capped mountains. So beautiful. Great position too, you can walk to all the shops and restaurants. The 3 bedrooms were spacious (master with TV) and very comfortable, all linen was high quality. We had 2 bathrooms, one with a spa, both modern, immaculate and spacious. The kitchen is huge, well equipped with high quality cookware, microwave, dishwasher and oven. Everything you need to self cater is provided. The laundry is great, washer, dryer, trough and iron provided. Living area very comfy with huge flat screen cable TV and large dining table. What made our stay even better was the super service provided by the staff. Gary the manager was delightful and nothing ever too much trouble for him, thank you. Overall, a great stay, we didn't want to leave! Will be back again one day.....

Our family of 4 (kids age 6 and 12) traveled South Island for 3 weeks in Feburary. We stumbled upon this serviced apartment after 10 days in a large RV and decided a rest from camper living would do us all good.

We stayed one night in a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. From start to finish it is well done. Every comfort and amenity provided. The full size, well stocked full size kitchen was perfect for the huge fish we caught on the lake that day!

Bathrooms have showers, nice toiletries, all lines and towels, deliciously comfortable beds, washer and dryer, 2 TV's and a big balcony with sweeping breathtaking
lake views!

The front desk gentleman was very accommodating regarding parking our big camper, as well as modifying our reservation due to the weather. Our second day was rain all day with high winds and we decided to move on as we would not be fishing anyway. Hard to leave such luxury!

There is a nice pool and hot tub, which my boys and I enjoyed. Ini the morning it was raining and we saw a rare double rainbow over the lake. Neat.

We paid 400NZ, which was steep for a family vacation, but was well worth it.

We just happened on these apartments, because we liked the look of them from the outside! Got a great deal at the reception desk. The rooms were fantastic, but so was the heated pool, and the outside area.
We would stay here again in an instant, but it's a l-o-n-g way from Scotland......

Our family of 4 stayed at the Lakeside apartments during Christmas week 2010. We are from San Diego, California, and were planning on staying 1 night in Wanaka and 3 nights in Queenstown. However, our 3 bedroom apartment was so fantastic that we ended up staying all 4 nights in Wanaka, and doing the drive to Queenstown (up and over the hill) each day. The apartment was spectacular. Beautiful furnishings, modern kitchen with granite counter and stainless steel appliances, and plasma TVs in the living room and master. We loved the view of the lake, pool, and hot tubs, and used the barbecue several times. We enjoyed walking the short distance to town, stores, and restaurants. There are also great walking and jogging trails along the lake. Not cheap, but much less expensive than Queenstown, and less expensive than what we paid for 1 room in Sydney, Australia.

Very spacious and well-equipped suites of rooms with unbeatable views of the lake and mountains. The apartments had just changed ownership when we stayed and the new owners had taken on a few teething problems, but that did not detract from our enjoyment of the luxurious apartment, with a large balcony, fully equipped kitchen, large living area and two bedrooms and its own washing and drying facilities. A great place to stay.

Travelling with friends we had a great 2 night stay. Clean, and such a wonderful view. Our hosts went out of their way to make our Wanaka stay the best, Gary helped organise a helicopter flight for us and this was the highlight of our trip. Beautifully appointed the apartment was ideally located, just a 1 min stroll into the town centre, where we found the business people friendly and inviting. Had a great ime in Wanaka and would visit again.
