Great location and amazing views. Lovely room but a bit dated. We stayed in the penthouse and we had more room than we knew what to do with! Beautifully appointed and really friendly staff. We liked that our car had its own garage. The spa pool with a view was lovely!

What can I say..Wow!! These apartments are truly stunning luxury on all levels. Literally a stones throw from all the restaurants and shops not to mention the BEST massage I have ever had in a wee place around the corner called Active Massage. The apartment was HUGE. Shag carpets, full kitchen and extra rooms if you are traveling as two couples or a family. Spa pool and big pool for Summer..and all sitting right next to stunning lake Wanaka

Thanks so much for taking the time to review and the heads up about the massage - we'll be chatting to them more :) Many guests are blown away by the size of the apartments, especially as the living/dining/kitchen area is available even when just one bedroom is booked; so you have the space for six, but there's just one or two guests. We look forward to seeing you again - perhaps try a different season next time - winter, spring, summer and autumn are four different holidays in Wanaka.

Thanks for taking the time to add a review on Trip Advisor. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and planning on staying again! Great to continue to receive awesome reviews that our apartments are held in such high regard. We continue to uplift and improve the apartments, now over 20 years old, to ensure they stay 'very modern' and 'well presented'. Thanks for recognising the amazing work our housekeeping team do, many of whom have been with us for years and years. We will be sure to pass that on. Being the only 5 star luxury accommodation in the centre of Wanaka, as you say, we are walking distance to everything. Until the next time ...

Amazing location and the best place to stay to experience beautiful Wanaka. The staff are friendly, the apartments are spotlessly clean and the management are accommodating and welcoming. Incredible views, lovely pool and spa area you really won't be disappointed. Can't wait to visit again.

Beautiful lakefront apartments, well appointed, ticked the boxes in every way. Hosts Gary and Jude are fantastic, welcoming and couldn't be more helpful/accommodating to us as their guests. Highly recommend.

From the beginning a wonderful experience. Gary greeted me with warmth and efficiency. The apartment on the top floor was first class, clean, very high end furnishings. The view to die for, and the good weather heightened the enjoyment. Very central. Even the footpath construction work outside could not dampen our love for this place. Thank you so much, we will return sometime, can't wait

Very comfortable. Nice and close to everything Wanaka has to offer. Would definitely stay again. Plenty of heating options in the suite. One downfall is the size of the garages. Bit tight if you had a bigger vehicle.

This apartment complex could not be in a more convenient location being within walking distance of everything the town has to offer, over to Edgewater and along the bike trail round the lake. Unit 204 absolutely fabulous with beautifully appointed and equipped interior and an outstanding view over the children's playground at the waters edge and the marina. Three bedrooms, one ensuited and other two in the back sharing second bathroom and separate toilet. Fabulous laundry to support boating, hiking, skiing experiences. Unbelievably quiet with lovely deck catching afternoon sun. Super pool and spa complex beside BBQ area. Ideal holiday accommodation for three couples or a family. Carparks available.

We had three nights here in a one bedroom apartment. Very spacious with everything one could need and a comfortable bed. Balcony overlooking the lake with a view up to the Mount Aspiring glacier. Easy walk to many restaurants or to a Four Square and and a large New World . Heated swimming pool with a good length for swimming.

Sadly we only got to stay one night this visit. This time we stayed in a ground floor apartment looking out at the pool and I’m pleased the quality and cleanliness is just as good. Check in/out easy, and we love the individual garages for our vehicle.
