We arrived late afternoon to a key box with parking intructions. Our designated bay was taken. From the office it was 40 steps down the hill to the villa. The offer to help with carrying the bags up did not eventuate with no one in the office on departure day. I questioned the $127 added cleaning fee on the 2nd day of 3 when we arrived back to an unswept floor. With no broom provided the least the cleaning fee should include sweeping the floor. The Villa's are close to the CBD and the walkway that ran just metres from our villa made for a nice walk to town. We feel that more information should be given about the concrete outside steps to get to the Villa. The jetty shown online was a feature we didnt see, probably because the banks are overgrown. The Villa was well appointed and having a washing machine, dryer and a clothes rack was excellent. Being lake front accommodation the jet boats with many people on board doing donuts in front of the villa from early morning vastly detracted from the quiet of the place.

Room Tip: Choose a Villa nearer the road, but the road noise on the busy road could be an issue.

We had a lovely experience staying three nights at the VDL - the one bedroom unit was spotlessly clean, it is a large size with modern decor and also has a good size kitchen fully equipped with appliances, crockery, laundry facilities, includes heating and a gas fireplace. VDL has an amazing view of the lake and it is conveniently located close to CBD, airport, and shopping centres. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.

Would highly recommend this accommodation. Stayed here during a skiing holiday, has ski storage and boot drying facilities. Friendly and helpful staff, accommodation clean and warm and everything you need for a home away from home. Stunning views of the lake.

We loved our five night stay here. It was comfortable, clean, well appointed and had an amazing view. We had a one bedroom apartment and loved that we had a comfy couch, fireplace, kitchen and laundry facilities. It was a great place to return to at the end of a activity filled day. Couple of small things, first and this wasn’t so much an issue for us but might be for others is that we had quite a number of stairs to climb to get to and from our apartment. With all our gear it was a bit of a pain but I could imagine for elderly, would be a challenge. Secondly, and I notice other people liked this so this may be just a thing that irks us, is the fact every time we came back to the apartment, lots of lights were switched on and the fire was going. And sometimes this must have been for hours....it’s just not necessary and not great for the environment either. There should be an option to say you don’t need this. The apartment actually kept wonderful warmth without having the fire come on all day. Anyway, we would definitely stay again. The stay was absolute value for money and was a perfect base for all our Queenstown activities.

Thanks so much for your review and your comments on lights and the fire. Over the summer months we don;t turn the lights on as the days are long, but we do put them on after a service in winter so that it feels friendly when you come back from your day's activities. We take your point about the environment, and we do use all LED bulbs to help reduce our electricty usage. The gas fire is on a thermostat. It is the main heater and only comes on to bring the room up to temperature and goes off automatically. Hope that helps to clarify. Cheers
