Love the location and the place very near to the city centre, it was a lovely stay and David was very helpful would highly recommend this place to anyone especially for family. It has a great view over Lake Wakatipu.

The vacation homes at Wakatipu Heights are modest and quaint but quite comfortable and appropriate for what we needed - a mini vacation. The location is great. The sweeping views out the main bedroom balcony take in the entire lake and its stunning. It's about a 20 minute walk from the cottage to downtown Queenstown, perfect for burning off your...

The house is in a good location with nice views. Plenty of parking available nearby. We stayed at the 4 bedrooms 7 Woodbury Rise villa for two nights.There was one problem with the rental – As soon as we arrived we noticed that one of the heating panels in one of the bedrooms had a crack in it so we...

Easy 10 minute walk downhill and 10.40 NZD ($7US) one way back from central Queenstown. Choose the white Queenstown company cabs, not the green or white "corporate company" cabs which are more expensive. Great price for the location and size. We only used one of the 3 bedrooms. Granted, this is not a brand new apartment, but it is clean...

We stayed at Wakatipu Heights and it was so much better than we expected. The view was incredible and the house had a very "lake house/cabin" feel to it that was fun. Great accommodations and management was close by if we needed anything. Highly recommended!

The house is situated in a very convenient location where you can get to heart of Queenstown or big Countdown supermarket in Frankton within few minutes of drive. The view of the lake and mountain is simply breathtaking! We also drove down to the lake but I would imagine it's walkable too except you have to climb up hill on...

The location of this house is excellent, it is about a 15 minute walk to town or a $10 taxi ride. There were 7 of us in this house so it was very cosy but was not too crowded still. The house had two areas outside, one out the front and one out the back. The front garden was great...

Great location, unbelievable view, ample space for our family of four adults. If you plan to cook (we did not), the kitchen is equipped only minimally. There were a few minor glitches that will require some routine maintenance--a sliding glass door that was hard to open and/or lock; three different space heaters that didn't do what they are supposed to....

This appartment is located really close to Queenstown is really well maintained and the views are spectacular. With underfloor heating upstairs and views from all of the main living areas it is picture perfect. The house itself is well equipped and the bedrooms are a perfect size. David was fantastic to deal with and couldn't do enough to help!
