This was my second stay at Villa del Lago after having stayed at the property three years ago. This time, I returned with my partner and if anything it was even better than the first time. The apartment that we stayed in seemed to have been newly renovated (with a big curved-screen LCD TV), and there was more than ample...

Stunning views of the lake and The Remarkables that can be enjoyed from the patio, full kitchen, dining area, front room and bedroom of the extremely comfortable, immaculate, upscale suite complete with fireplace :) Loved the washer and dryer in the suite and the heated bathroom floor, too. Lovely path in front of the suites that could be used to...

My husband and I stayed at many nice hotels and motels on our visit to Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii but this was my favorite. When we first got there I was a little worried because the parking lot was steep and we needed to descend a flight of stairs to get to our room. However, the moment we walked...

Our family of 5 booked a 3 bedroom villa for 3 nights. We stayed in villa #13. We arrived in Queenstown in the evening, after the front office had closed. They left a key for us, and we managed to find the villa with no problems. The villa is on 3 levels, with 1 bedroom at the entry level on...

LOVED this place from the moment we arrived. Stayed for 4 nights over Christmas. Location is just stunning, views of the lake and mountains right outside our door. Room itself was very very modern, and had all that we needed and more. Main bed and sofa bed extremely comfortable. Great size, kitchen fully equipped. Heated floor in bathroom such a...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. The dish washers in the 1 Bedroom Suites are all new. They are a little dishdrawer system and we are always happy to help guests using appliances if they are having any trouble. We do provide a pot mit for handling hot items in the kitchen, but maybe this was overlooked as...

Our stay at the villa del Lago in October 2016 was a truly wonderful experience; made possible by luxurious accommodation which offered a first class view of Lake Wakatipu every which way you turned; and is close to all major attractions. Add to this, the warm hospitality extended by lovely and most affable hosts Charlotte and Nic (who recommended and...

Villa del Lago is the best place in Queenstown to stay. It has a modern kitchen, an ultra modern bathroom with heated floors & a fantastic fireplace. Best part is the view of Lake Wakatipu and mountains behind it. Will surely go back there in our next visit to Queenstown.

We stayed at Villa Del Lago twice in December 2016 and loved it. Great views of the lake, attentive service, and full facilities (dishwasher, washing machine and drier). Villa Del Lago is within walking distance to Queenstown. To avoid the Queenstown traffic, take the lakeside walking track.

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic!! We have travelled all over the world and this would be one of the best accommodation hotels/resorts we have ever stayed in.

Checked in to our one bedroom apartment a few hours early...as house keeping was finishing tidying our room. Receptionist/property manager saw to it that our room was made ready promptly (she runs a right shift) and offered spot-on recommendations of local activities and restaurants in the meantime. Once ready, she showed us to our room. Stunning views. Amazing balcony. Right...
