We stayed at Spinnaker Bay in late August/beginning of September 2015. The room was well equipped, clean and warm. Having wifi and an in-room laundry was great and appreciated. The view from the large windows was amazing. The biggest downfall is the parking, we were in apartment 8 with a large car. The bitumen was wet and sometimes icy, creating... More

Stayed for 5 nights at the end of Dec 2015. As there were 4 adults, we got the 2 bedrooms apartment overlooking the lake. The apartment is well equipped which comes with washing machine, dryer, refrigerator and etc. The apartment has a small balcony overlooking the lake which comes handy during the evening downtime. Each bedroom has an adjoining bathroom,... More

Have to review this place! We stepped back in time. The owner of this property believes in maintainence and not updating at all! They get away with it coz of the view offered by every room. We stayed in apartment 16. No idea if all are as dated. It was clean and had free wifi which we did appreciate. Someone... More

The view from this apartment is beautiful, overlooking the sea and the mountains. It is spacious on two floors with a small balcony a small table and two chairs. The Internet was relatively fast and reliable. There is also a washing machine and a dryer. The center can be reached within 20 minutes, walking along the lake shore (scenic) or... More

We were delighted when we stepped through the door of our apartment #7 and the view just blew us away. We knew from that moment we would have a great family week in Queenstown for New Year and we were close enough to walk (20mins) on the lakeside walkway at the bottom of our garden path and for our 2...

Very well maintained and located property, though walk of 10 minutes from the heart of the city but the location is too good. Well maintained. The host Ms. Jude is a gem of a lady. Highly recommended for a family vacation.

After spending two evenings at the Spinnaker Bay, we come to realize that one of the best way to enjoy Queenstown is to plan your stay in an accommodation like what Spinnaker Bay can offer. It offers a truly lake-front view, a stunning sight of the Remarkables, and a serene environment with privacy. We stayed in a two-bedrooms apartment. The... More

The location of the apartments on the lake is perfect and really ensures for uninterrupted views, yet there are issues: -No central heating - or ot offered to us - so we were cold - even worse in the bedrooms which only have small oil heaters. There is an open fire yet seems to be decorative! -Slippery and steep steps... More

We stayed here last month (end of September) for one week and I had read all the reviews before going and I would now agree with all those who gave this place 5 stars. I'm not sure how long the person who put down the comments about rather basic housekeeping stayed but as we stayed a week about 3 or... More
