We visited Pounamu apartments for 5 days in May. The apartment has a great view of the lake, mountains and very close to downtown Queenstown. You could not find a better location. The apartment is very spacious with plenty of room for all 4 of us. The apartment has all of the conveniences you could want from free internet, computer,...

Stayed for 5 nights in a one bedroom apartment facing the lake and enjoyed every moment of it. Fantastic views from the comfort of your couch or the balcony. The balcony is facing a busy road so not too much privacy if one wants that. Beautifully appointed, quality equipment (including reputable brands) and unlimited wifi for 4 devices. The main...

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which fronts onto the main road into Queenstown. While the noise didn't bother us so much, if you're looking for tranquility this won't be the spot for you. The apartment was lovely, full kitchen, dishwasher, laundry and bathroom with bath. The fireplace was lovely!! Our room had a streetlight out the front which...

Dear captain_calamari Thank you for sharing your feedback with your fellow TripAdvisor reviewers. Yes the views are amazing. The Apartments are noise insulated with double glazed glass as per the normal building standards for accommodation buildings including Hotels.

Just Stayed 4 nights, and throughly enjoyed it. The 1 bed premium was fantastic, well appointed with great views over the lake to the remarkables. Ro was super organised and knowledgable, and thanks for the great suggestions on activities and restaurants to make my chiller trip really good. It's not far to town, and an easier walk down the hill....

Came here for a couples holiday in Queenstown, and loved it here. Our room had a stunning view. Bed was comfortable and room was spacious. Although the room is pricey it is well worth it for the great location and modern, stylish room. Would definitely return and would recommend to anyone!

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 5 nights and it was perfection. It has everything you need in an apartment and more!! It is about a 10 minute walk downhill to town centre.

Booked 4 nights for a one bedroom apartment. The views are fantastic and the apartment was tastefully designed, modern, and cozy. Trek to town is not that bad. However, you need to know the shortcut (which is through the park) to avoid walking on a steep incline going back to the apartment. After a day or two, you will be...

Hi Mendelson T Thank you for your great review and feedback. I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Pounamu and that you found our Apartments cozy.
