I absolutely loved this place. We had a 2 bedroom deluxe apartment on the 3rd floor. It was so spacious and clean with a huge balcony and a fantastic view of the forever changing lake and mountains. It was serviced daily which was lovely. The bed in the main bedroom was one of the best I've ever slept in -...

Thank you for your review and I know what you mean; waking up in those luxurious beds to the awesome lake and mountain views is truly worth a longer stay. With the central location, these apartments are so close and walkable to most Wanaka restaurants and shops, yet being opposite the lake, means the views are spectacular from every apartment....

Great stay here! We were upgraded to a penthouse suite which was HUGE. The whole place was great - really modern with a clothes washer/dryer, beautiful bathrooms, soft robes, comfortable bed, incredible hot tub on the deck and the views that went on forever. Great parking too. They gave us directions and recommendations for meals which were good. We got...

First impression - great location, clean, great service, big room, quality fittings. Pool was lovely and warm (29 deg) in December, good kitchen. Was a a little noisy over weekend (close to town) although double glazing helped.

Very convenient indeed 2) great view, probably the best view in Wanaka 3) large apartment, well furnished and fitted, and good interior design as well 4) comfortable bed, good sleep 5) excellent service - management willing to make some adjustment to...

I could live here forever. The 2 bedroom has a lot of space, 2 toilets and everything you'd ever need. Decorations are not flash, but it's comfortable, homely and of good quality. Views are to die for. A home cooked dinner on the balcony with the lake and mountain views as side "dishes" are amazing. Literally across the street from...

Our recent stay at Lakeside Apartment was spectacular. The reception staff were outstanding, and very helpful.

Right from walking in the door everything was superb. As a couple they upgraded us due to our late night arrival so we would have a close room to parking. The 3 bedroom apartment we were in was spacious and would be fantastic for a group or family. Views and service matched the great location. Highly recommended

Lakeside Apartments are just perfect. Wanaka is a beautiful location with breathtaking views from your apartment. We had a 2br bedroom apartment on the third floor and it was just perfect. Very clean with everything thought of. Serviced daily/full laundry facilities/comfortable beds. Spacious and so close to the shops/restaurants and cafes. Staff were very friendly. Thank you Kaye. Just PERFECT!
