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...

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment (an upgrade from a one bedroom) and couldn't have asked for anything else. The kitchen had everything we needed, a comfortable and spacious lounge area and our own washer and dryer. We also had two balconies with amazing views over the lake. Even though it is on the main road into Queenstown you...

This resort has fabulous views of the lake. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, which had a separate living room and kitchen. The facilities are extremely modern. The resort isn't exactly centrally located and is about a 8-10 minute drive from central Queenstown.

Thank you for your review. Google Maps accurately locate Villa del Lago 1.7kms or 4 minutes by car to central Queenstown. Guests are welcome to check this with their smart phones.

Very helpful when checking in, told us some good wineries to go to, nothing was too much bother. Our apartment location was spectacular, could not get much closer to the lake, the most amazing view. Very comfortable well appointed apartment, kitchen & laundry were well outfitted. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, totally loved it & hated to leave here!!

What views! Spacious 3-bedrooms/2 bath. Very comfortable bedding, kitchen pretty well-equipped, washer/dryer. Clean. Easy check-in/out. It's about a 20-25 minute walk to town along the lakefront track, which is quite pleasant (easy to do more than once a day) and drops you right into Queenstown Gardens.

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel in a room with an unbelievable view of the Frankton Arm of Lake Wakatipu. Our room was down 3 flights of stairs from the parking area, but it was also a stone's throw from the lake itself. We had a separate bedroom, comfortable living room and gas fireplace, and a well-appointed kitchen. There...

We stayed here for 2 nights and didn't want to leave! It's located about 25 mins walk from Queenstown city center. Nice walk along the lake front. The best part was the spectacular view of Lake Wakatipu. Felt incredibly blessed to be waking up to the view. It was very clean, modern with well equipped kitchen and laundry room. Was...
