“Super cosy and close to town!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Friendly service right from the beginning and cheaper prices if paying upfront. Loved the Prada perfume! The place looked lovely and clean. There were beautiful chocolates on arrival, milk, coffee and tea - the perfect start before going to the nearby shops for groceries. The apartment itself was smouldering, seriously romantic! good lighting while keeping energy costs down. Loved that we could sit out on the balcony. The view was incredible. All staff were friendly and attractions could be booked directly with reception. It is about a 10-15 minute walk into town but it is a beautiful walk. Loved having WiFi so that we could post our journey on Facebook. I loved everything about our stay including our wonderful apartment Very well priced for this luxury stay!

Room Tip: the top floor apartments have a larger balcony with a small table - great for warmer months!

Spent 4 days here in April and wow. The place was fantastic, everything you need, ktichen area, dining area and living room. Easy access to washer and dryer (no fees). The view fabulous- could have coffee on the balcony and over look the lake and the mountains.
Claudia did a wonderful job of booking all the extras we wanted to do in the area as well made a few suggestions that made these even better. I would stay here again. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Thanks for making this a wonderful trip.

We were fortunate to stay at Pounamu for over a week. We had a 2 bedroom apartment, the kingsize bed was very comfy, the gas fire was fantastic - kept us lovely and warm. Kitchen had everything you could ask for - and then there was the view! I loved getting up early and just watching the changes in the light across the mountains and Lake Wakatipu. Yes there is a main road out the front, but it really doesn't interfere with the view, and noise is minimal. A short walk and you were in Queenstown, which was much appreciated because parking in and around Queenstown is at a premium. Staff were fantastic and advised on trips, sightseeing etc and will make the bookings for you.

We spent four nights in a one-bedroom apartment at Pounamu. The apartment was very spacious, with sitting, dining, office and kitchen areas and a separate en-suite bedroom. The level of design and furnishing was excellent, well above hotel standard. The apartment overlooked the lake with floor to ceiling windows, making it very light and pleasant. Service from the on-site managers was excellent and their recommendations for day trips spot on. They handled our bookings and the tours picked up at the apartments. The walk into Queenstown is about 20 minutes along the lakeside path or 15 minutes along the road. In the evenings we chose to drive in and there is a cheap underground car park in the town. A short drive to Frankton in the other direction has useful shopping including a good supermarket.

Room Tip: The apartments have a design seemingly common in New Zealand with two bedrooms which can be let sepa...
