My family of four arrived in Queenstown toward the end of our trip after staying in several places throughout New Zealand. The Villa was our favorite place to stay. It was private, quiet, and the views are breathtaking. We booked a two bedroom apartment overlooking the lake. The furnishings were modern, clean and comfortable. Loved the shower, heated towel racks,...

Two weeks ago, the 5 of us (2 adults and 3 teenagers) had the good fortune to stay at the Villa Del Lago in one of their 3 bedroom units for 3 nights. Everything about the facility was great, it was a nice walk to town and easy cab to airport. It was very new, quite clean and the management...

We stayed for two nights and the apartment was brilliantly appointed and had wonderful lake and mountain views. Charlotte was very helpful and had pre booked a Dart River wilderness trip as well as a Doubtful Sound overnight cruise for us. Location is outside the centre but provides a pleasant 20 minute walk in, along the lakeside path. Great base...

My husband and I just got back from a trip to New Zealand (Queenstown area for 5 days) and Australia (10 days) and tried to keep our hotel expenses down to around $200/day. Without question, Villa Del Lago was the nicest place we stayed. The owners are super friendly and nice. They were even happy to give us a little...

I was unsure whether it was a good idea to stay 1.5 kms out of the main town, but it was in fact a brilliant idea. The views from Villa Del Lago are stunning and world class. Plus the 20 minute walk into town is along the Frankton Track and also beautiful. Staff also very helpful and friendly. Will stay...

It is really grand looking out at Lake Wakatipu and the view changes all the time with the play of light and shadow on the mountains beyond. The staff are very helpful and will help you book activities. Our one bedroom accommodation could not have nicer. There is an excellent fully stocked kitchen and laundry facilities also.

We stayed here for two nights and based on previous recommendations we were not disappointed. Our 1 bedroom unit was lovely and was very well appointed. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the view was magnificent. I would definitely stay there again if/when we come back to Queenstown.

This is an accommodation you will never regret to stay in queenstown. A short 7 minute drive away from queenstown town centre, it offers the view of the lake and mountain right from the balcony outside the living room and bedroom. Kitchen is well stocked and apartment is very clean. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment located in the...
