Queenstown at its best !!

Pros: From when we stepped through the door all 5 of us were thrilled . Warm , convenient location and the view ....... AMAZING
Cons: Double glazing on the main bedroom window . I have seen some reviews not happy with the noise. Didn't bother us too much
Location: Location , Location ,Location . After driving around the lake I have to say for us it was THE best spot in Queenstown for the view across the Lake
We had a fabulous stay at the Esplanade . Thank you for everything.Could not have picked a better place to stay for our family holiday . Our 2 older kids absolutely loved the town house and that's saying something ! I can't tell you how comfortable, warm and cosy it was . We walked in and out of town every day/ evening . It was just so convenient. The view across the lake and up into the mountains with their snow caps was breathtaking . Waking up to that every morning .... didn't want to leave . The open fire was lovely after a day on the slopes. Will definitely be back . Many Thanks x

Esplanade Queenstown, great location

Apartment was fantastic, location and views superb. TV was a little awkward to use, would be nice to have more input capability too (USB or HDMI maybe). Really a minor point though, everything else was truly enjoyable.
