Lovey, clean and very relaxing, as away from the hustle and bustle of Wanaka. Beds were comfortable and bathroom facilities were excellent, only issue is that the TV was very dated. Would like to have stayed longer!

This was a dream holiday with an all adult family group and skiing being the aim. The standard of accommodation was supreme and it was clear that a lot of thought has gone in to planning for the needs of skiing folk (and outdoor adventurers). It was greatly valued having a room especially designed to store the skis, jackets, boots... More

We stayed four nights in two units , 25 and 26 on our visit for the Warbirds over Wanaka airshow . Our units were very comfortable and clean , also very warm because of double glazing on doors and window. We didn't need heating during the night or electric blanket! They have a pizza bar which we enjoyed on three... More

We have two children. We wanted a break. We loved the house we were in - the beds so comfortable, great shower, lots of space. Cosy sofa/tv area. Kitchen to cook meals in. Free wifi. Such a beautiful valley. The Cardrona Hotel nearby for a leisurely drink. Helpful management who had our room ready for 10am check in! We loved... More

Dirty with lots of black mould. Cracked and damaged walls throughout. Rude staff. Many of the amenities listed online were closed until further notice. Love the region and will definitely return to Wanaka but will never stay here again!

We had a family group attending Warbirds over Wanaka. 3 bed apartment was everything we required, good proximity to WOW (don't take the main road through Wanaka - divert off before you get there) We didn't use the pizza place but in the apartment and reception service was just what we needed. Clean, modern, comfortable, convenient. Would definitely stay again.... More

The room facilities were great. Dryer, washing machine and dishwasher with all the utensils you could ever need. Polite staff and beautiful location. However, considering the price - the rest is poor. The room was extremely loud, the roof creaked and moaned with every movement of an upstairs guest. We could hear every conversation too, we felt sorry for the... More
