The Lakeside Apartments in Wanaka are sensational - great location, well equipped, fantastic view and nothing is too much trouble for Gary or his team. We enjoyed it so much we've already booked a return trip.

We have just stayed at the Lakeside Apartments for 4 days and have absolutely no concerns recommending it and would definitely stay here again. We can see why this is number 1 in Wanaka.

We have stayed here twice. The first time we were on the ground floor which led directly to the pool area which was great for the kids. The second time we had the room directly above. Both times our stay was outstanding. The staff can't do enough for you and the view over looking the lake is stunning. I lost...

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...

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.

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...
