We stayed for a week in a two bedroom apartment with our adult children and cannot fault the location, facilities and service of Pounamu. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well appointed - full kitchen facilities with every gadget required to cook a full meal. The gas fireplace and underfloor heating kept us cosy warm and the dvd's and Foxtel entertained. The bedrooms were large enough to be comfortable and the bathrooms spotlessly clean and well appointed.
On top of all that - we had the most amazing, relaxing view of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains.
Free Wi-Fi an the study nook were appreciated.
A couple of tips:
1. An easy 10 minute walk downhill into Queenstown to access restaurants etc, but suggest taking advantage of the Green Cabs deal of a $10 return trip up the hill back to the apartments.
2. Supermarkets (Countdown and New World) are located at Frankton near the airport, so it's worthwhile stopping in to stock up on supplies before your stay. The smaller markets in the town itself are quite expensive.
3. We chose to book our activities through reception and found this was an excellent option as it saved us time in lining up in Queenstown and the advice given by the staff was spot on.
We highly recommend Pounamu and are already looking forward to our next visit.More
