location - must drive and it was spot on! just behind 4 major MTB tracks - that's why we went to NZ
premise - it was an absolute delight! room was big and had own garage! what more do you want!? 2 toilets and cleaned daily!
staff - all were VERY friendly and helpful. made our stay even better. :)
price - we got it during the off-peak season but for a lodge like apartment with fantastic kitchen and also all the works, why choose anywhere else? (i went in March 2013)
surroundings - it has a small pool but it is just beside entrances to about 4 MTB tracks there and it connects to many other parts of Wanaka area.
verdict: LOVE!!! the skies / water / grass / hills / environment were fantastic, it's like God took his time to make the country! sorry that i dont have the pictures to prove it but what you have seen online, it's mostly un-doctored!
