The place was awesome, the view was great. The rooms were exceptionally clean (newly built), modernized and the staff was extremely friendly. We got locked out and got home at 4 in the A.M. Had to call the staff. They answered with a "good morning" and the guy was there to let us in, in less than 5 minutes with a smile on his face! I would have loved to have a unit on the top floor but no complaints! The place gives you a quiet and serene feel yet is only a 5 minute drive from the hustle bustle of downtown. The internet center and laundry inside was an added bonus. A towel warmer in the bathrooms totally worked!

We were touring New Zealand and booked these apartments before we left the UK. We were not disappointed, in fact we grinned with delight when we opened the door. They are very, very well equipped and very modern in style - ultra clean. The 2 bedrooms were each en-suite and the lounge large with windows looking across the road to the lake.
When we first arrived we were concerned that we were about a 10 min walk from the main town but the walk could be done alongside the lake on a purpose built pathway - very pleasant- and it was nice to be out of the main centre. We stayed for three days and were sorry to leave at the end.

This was our second time in these apartments, having been so impressed after our first visit. This time we had an apartment on the upper floor and in block 3 where the view was fantastic. The apartments themselves are modern, classy, clean and well fitted out with pretty much everything you need to self cater if that's what you want to do. It's a pleasant walk down into the town (although sometimes a bit of a struggle to walk back after a few drinks) which takes maybe 15 minutes.
Definately recommend this place to anyone who wants a touch of class for a reasonable price.

This is an excellent Apartment complex. Highest of standards and in ideal location. The views of the lake and the mountains are breathtaking.
Comfort level is very high and are facilities are all you could wish for. One minor point:
it would be great if the fan in the bathroom could be changed so as to be less noisy

Stayed here 3 nights as part of our NZ tour. Wow, the views over the lake were excellent from the elevated apartment (with balcony) which was fully equipped with a PC and fax machine plus all the usual kitchen appliances incl washing machine/tumble dryer.
The accommodation was so clean and modern, no-one could fault it. Located within walking distance of the town - underground parking and all at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

We only stayed at Pounamu for four days, during a 3 week visit to NZ, and loved it. We hope to go back and will stay longer at these lovely apartments.

They are a little bit out of town, and they are on a road; but to be really honest that is not a real problem. The breath taking view, high standard of the apartments and the helpful friendliness of the staff make up for the little walk up hill back from town.

After a lot of travelling around the South Island we found just sitting on the balcony, or in the lounge looking at the views of the Remarkables just lovely.

We stayed at Pounamu Apts 23-25 Jan, 2009. It is an excellent property with modern, clean, very comfortable apts with every imaginable utility in them. The staff is very friendly, the views of the lake are stunning, and it is within walking distance to downtown.
Bravo...
