My family of 3 stayed here for week at the snow in August in 2011 in a 2 bedroom apartment and we'll definitely be back.
Our apartment was fantastic with everything you could want/need. Full kitchen with everything on hand to cook all your meals or was close enough to Wanaka for a quick drive in for food and/or shopping. We found it a bit far to walk after a day of snowboarding but that's very dependant on your energy levels.
The bathroom doubled as a drying room so each morning our gear was ready for another day up the mountain. There was a washing machine and dryer in the garage and electric blankets on the bed to keep you warm on those extra cold nights.
The 2 x outdoor spas are great to give your tired muscles a good soak at the end of the day and they have gorgeous views but get in early. There's also daily apartment servicing so you always come home to a clean and warm place which when you're tired and sore after a huge day is very welcoming.
