Perfect Private Proximate to Queenstown

Review of Villa del Lago
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Mar 2024
We stayed at Villa del Lago for four nights during our trip to New Zealand. This was a perfect place for us with a glorious view of Lake Wakatipu positioned to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets. Our condo was beautifully appointed, contained all the amenities you could want (washer, dryer, dishwasher), was immaculately clean and so private. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had great pressure with hot water - very important to us. The location was also great - about a 25 minute walk to the Queenstown City Center and the botanical garden. We were well located for day trips that included fishing and sightseeing in Glenorchy. The place was comfortable enough to want to just stay and enjoy the views.

Room Tip: We stayed in #18 which is at the bottom of a couple of flights of stairs. The excellent view and...

Breathtaking views and only a few steps away from the edge of Lake Wakitipu. Very comfortable suites with full, well-equipped kitchen and living room. Close to town but just far enough away to avoid the chaos of downtown Queenstown with beautiful lakeside trail only a few steps away. Very friendly staff. Quiet and sublime. Have stayed here many times. Wonderful.

We stayed here 3 nights and loved it! Beautiful sunny southern view across the lake. 30 min walk into town, but doable. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. After a 3 week busy trip, it was nice to relax with peace and quiet and take out! Highly recommend!

Room tip: Rooms higher up have the best view and close by parking

Brilliant views over the lake and very peaceful. Our room was missing an iron but the staff went out of their way to find me one which I really appreciated. It was very useful to have a washing machine and tumble dryer on site. There's no issue with accessibility if you are fit and able but not all rooms will be suitable for those who have mobility issues. Well stocked kitchen with everything we needed and a 30 minute walk into Queenstown which suited us really well.

Room tip: Choose your room carefully if you have mobility issues.

We were awed by the amazing views onto the lake and mountains from both the living room and the downstairs bedrooms !
The unit was beautiful, clean and comfortable. It was well-equipped with a complete kitchen and washer and dryer. Great location with a practical access to a charming pathway running along the water below.
We had an amazing time and would strongly recommend it.

We loved our 3 night stay in one of the one bedroom lake view apartments. Great location but if we didn't have a car it would have been too far for us to walk into town (we are in our 70s) The view of the lake is spectacular. Very well equipped, very clean and spacious and the bed was really comfortable - oh so important. Great communication through booking process. Would stay there again.

Room tip: We used taxis most of the time to get to and from Queenstown but beware of dodgy companies, we were ripped off twice.
