Clean, neat apartment. Good supply of kitchen utensils. Friendly staff. Would suggest attending to the dripping tap above apartment 2, which unfortunately kept our family awake most of the night

Hi Natalie. So Sorry about that but we investigated after reading this and in it was in fact a down pipe that had moved and was dripping onto the floor creating a noise. This has now been fixed we only really noticed when it was raining and we sat in room 2 and realized what it was. thanks megan

Clean and tidy, friendly staff, handy to town, a really good set up. A few things a bit wobbly such as kitchen tap and bathroom shelves.

When we arrive, we were greeted at the reception by a very lady, who is very knowledgeable and provides a lot of handy suggestions on what to do at Wanaka. That was a great start. The apartment is also very clean and well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at the apartment.
