You really couldn't get any closer to the water without being in it. They even have their own pier for so that water taxis can be used! Terrific apartment, as I said, overlooking the lake. Fully furnished with absolutely all conveniences AND an individual laundry facility. No 11 had a twin & a double. The double being en-suite. All facilities...

I chose this place for the first part of our stay in Queenstown, due to its location - right on lake Wakatipu and the fact that it had a large enough complex to accommodate the five of us comfortablly. It turned out to be a fine choice. The rooms were well appointed and the living room very spacious. The only...

Thank you for your stay and for your nice review. While most of our guests prefer to prepare their own meals, including breakfast, we do offer breakfast baskets by special request. Breakfast baskets are continental style breakfasts with fruit, cereal and yoghurt. These go well with the complimentary tea and coffee in each room, and can be ordered for NZ$15.00...

On arrival we were upgraded to a larger apartment. It was amazing. We loved the two balconies, one from the lounge room and the other from our bedroom. Very comfortable with gas log fire and cosy sofas. There is every amenity that you could want, modern bathroom, cooking and laundry facilities. Decor is pleasing to the eye and we could...

This was one of the best places we have stayed. Great room, very well equipped and such a wonderful view across the lake. Good location out of town but easy 20 min walk into the centre along the lakeside. If you do not want to walk - then use the water taxi. Really good fun. Excellent hosts who were very...

We stayed here for four nights in December. My brother and sister in law joined us from the US for a two week tour of the South Island. This was our first stop and for the rest of our trip we would compare our lodging to Villa Del Lago, and remark - this wouldn't happen at Charlotte's (one of the...

Villa del Lago is just the right fit for my wife and me -- great location a short walk away from town away from the rowdy late night backpacker areas, large, lovely rooms all with beautiful views of the lake, and great kitchen if you want to save money on food (we spent $26 on a burrito in town).

This was by far the best accommodation we had in our 2 weeks trip in South Island. Great, well appointed apartment with spectacular views and everything you need to feel at home far away from home. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights stay and we will definitely be back.

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...

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...
