Lakeside Apartments

Reviewed 1 September 2014

We joined friends at the Wanaka Lakeside apartments. The apartments are excellently located just a few minutes walk from the town and with beautiful views across to the lake. The set up of each apartment is clever as our friends rented a 1 bedroom apartment and then as friends joined the management were able to 'unlock' additional bedrooms to convert the apartment into a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment - with a reasonable nightly charge.
The apartments are large and very well appointed with a lovely big kitchen and a great verandah for apres ski drinks! There were 2 jacuzzis in the common areas which we used each evening after skiing (and a pool if you were feeling up to a chilly swim)There were also BBQs in the common pool area.
Management were very friendly and the rooms were serviced each day.
The only negative would be that the back bedrooms are close to the rear stairs and walkways - so you sometimes heard people coming back late at night.
Otherwise it was a fabulous place to stay.

What a wonderful place. Exceptional management and housekeeping staff. Beautiful apartment and absolutely gorgeous view. Plus the great skiing of course. Would most definitely recommend and if we are ever back in Wanaka this is the only place we would want to stay.

After spending a week in a camper van we were delighted to settle down into our unit.
This place was very nice we really liked that each unit has its own private garage. There is a place to store your skis and
snowboards etc.
The units were very nice well appointed large master bedroom. With two smaller bedrooms near the back nice laundry room nice second bathroom with a tub.
Both the living room and the master bedroom share a balcony that looked out onto the swimming pool and we were very close to the Jacuzzi tub.
Near the pool there were a couple of gas grills that anyone could use which we did.
The kitchen was well appointed.
All in all it was a very comfortable place.
Additionally the view was fantastic looking out over the lake. And it was a very short walk into town very convenient, especially since the drive to Cardrona and Treble Cone ski areas each are only about 30 minutes drive.
Great place and staying in Wanaka is more relaxing than Queenstown

Thank you for writing a review of your stay with us at Lakeside.

Campervan to luxury apartment, hmm yes, I can see why you were delighted. The apartments are well suited for a short or long stay and the beauty of the central location means you are close to town, restaurants, cafes and as you say, only a short drive to the ski-fields.

Every apartment has a jaw dropping view of the stunning lake and spectacular mountains and with this high pressure that has been parked over us for nearly a week now, and the longer evenings, there's nothing better than relaxing on the balcony soaking up the sun and the view after a days' skiing.

Thanks again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Just returned from a three week trip to of a lifetime to New Zealand and Australia. We stayed at the Lakeside Apartments on our way to the west coast of New Zealand. The apartment was absolutely fantastic with outstanding views of the lake. Our family of four were upgraded to an even larger apartment when we checked in and the owners were wonderful. We could not have asked for anything better. The apartment was first class with heated tile floors, beautiful lighting and gorgeous upgrades throughout. My only wish was that we could have stayed longer! If I ever get the chance to return, it will be for a full week in the summer to completely relax and enjoy this lovely apartment and beautiful Wanaka.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us during your trip of a lifetime.

How wonderful to enjoy an Australasian trip such as you have. New Zealand is certainly a beautiful place and Wanaka especially: where better to capture and enjoy the fantastic lake and mountain views than the number one accommodation on Trip Advisor, Lakeside Apartments. We always enjoy our guests faces when they first discover these special and spacious apartments.

Wanaka is not a place to be rushed, so we look forward to welcoming you back for your longer, more relaxed stay, maybe one summer. Book early though, as these apartments are very popular in the summer, as well as the winter, due to their central location, fabulous service and wonderful lake and mountain views from private balconies.

The apartment was lovely and the view was beautiful. The reception staff were very helpful with respect to the local restaurants. The price was very reasonable. We couldn't fault our stay, and would definitely stay there again.

This time we had room 201 which was on the second floor on the corner. Wow, light soaked huge living space with a massive veranda overlooking the oh so beautiful Laka Wanaka. We love it here and will certainly stay again. Free wi fi, great heating, massive TV with all of the Sky Channels, very short walk into town and all that Wanaka offers. HUGE fully equipped kitchen which did not get used because there are so many great places to eat in town. There were even a few brave souls using the heated spas!! Not for us I'm afraid but looked like fun. This is a really well run place and we would certainly stay here again when visiting Wanaka.

Room Tip: I think rooms on the second and third floors would potentially be a bit quieter. The rooms on the fi...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. Your second stay as well.

The apartments are very spacious and as you say, very light and warm. They are well laid out with the master bedroom at the front and two further bedrooms at the rear, allowing us to lock off bedrooms not needed. As the apartments are very spacious when fully occupied with six guests, they are very very spacious if occupied by only two or four guests.

With all apartments having lake and mountain views and massive TV with so many channels, why would you want to stay anywhere else in Wanaka.

We look forward to welcoming you back for your third stay....

My partner and I stayed on the 2nd floor of the apartments and were amazed by the standard of the rooms and views off the balcony.
Staff were friendly and helpful and we were a 2 minute walk from great cafés and bars.
Very happy with our decision to stay at lakeside, would recommend to anyone
