6 of us stayed in a 2-room apartment last week and we loved it the moment we checked-in. The view is truly breathtaking. Having a fully equipped kitchen, we could make our meals with ease and enjoy the scenery while we have our breakfast (great food and awesome view - the best combo ever!). We also love how convenient Oaks...

We spent 5 nights in Queenstown and were thrilled with our accommodation - we had a 2 bed / 2 bathroom apartment with wonderful views across the lake to the snow covered mountains from the large windows. Room was large with a lovely fireplace. Well furnished. Great undercover parking also available.

Perfect view of the lake. We had the penthouse for 4 couples and it was fantastic. Each couple had their own toilet and shower. The kitchen was great had everything we needed.

We had a three bedroom apt between one couple and four single guys, which worked well. The facility was excellent for location to the mountains and the town and what it had to offer. Our apartment had a great view of the lake and the mountains. (see pics). Would stay again.
