    Piyush S from Moonee Ponds, Victoria recommends this vacation rental

    Perfectly located with great views of the Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu, 5 minutes walk to the happening town centre, enough space for large families, a large living room, fireplace, theatre room, sauna, this apartment had everything one may need on a vacation and even more. Will recommend highly. And would keep it at the top of my list too when we visit Queenstown next.

    • Manager Responded on 7/24/2017

    Karen C from Auckland, Auckland recommends this vacation rental

    I travelled with a group of 4 adults and we all loved our stay at Peppers. Firstly the booking process through Goodstays was faultless. I wish all Hotels/Apartments were as organized. The apartment was spotless and everything was in working order. We used the large media room to watch the Americas Cup racing, what a treat. The spa on the deck was at a perfect temperature with the best views you will find in Queenstown. This really is a special location, the views will take you breath away each time you enter the apartment. It is only a few minutes flat walk to Queenstown central with a general store 2 minutes away. My only negative is that a coffee machine would have been lovely, there is only a plunger.

    I would highly recommend staying here and using Goodstays. We have been to Queenstown many times and this was by far our best experience

    Lukas P from Revesby Heights, NSW recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed here recently as a group of 4 couples and had plenty of space. The views from the apartment and balcony are amazing and nothing beats relaxing in the spa after a long day on the slopes. They key system was a bit frustrating as people coming home late at night would often wake those in the bedroom where the key safe was. The laundry also really needs a clothes airer so you can hang up your clothes at the end of the day. Apart from that, the apartment is well appointed, the rooms are big and the inclusion of the cinema room was a nice touch for those quiet nights in. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

    • Manager Responded on 9/20/2016

      Dear Lukas, Thank you for reviewing your stay at Waterfront Penthouse. This property certainly does provide you with an overall luxurious feel with the theatre room and spa pool so it's great to hear you made the most of these! In regards to the lock box, we generally suggest that you use this to access the property initially and then to use the keys on the kitchen bench for the remainder of your stay, this would probably be the most convenient option. Great to hear you would recommend this beautiful home, we hope to welcome you back again in the future! Best regards, Goodstays

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Penthouse. Location location location. All the facilities/amenities that anyone would need. Monior glitches - some of the bedroom TV's had issues, and the projector in the cinema room requires a new lamp, so picture a little hazy. Everything else perfect. Jacuzzi on deck fabulous.

    There were 7 of us staying (one couple) and we had an amazing time at our apartment. Everything felt high end and luxury with all the amenities we could hope for. It surpassed all of our expectations and the spa overlooking the Lake was a highlight. It was perfectly situated and just a 10 minute walk to town. We would have liked fans in the bedrooms but otherwise can't fault our stay here and couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    Helene S from Chicago, Ilinois recommends this vacation rental

    We were eight (two families with teens) sharing the four bedroom penthouse and couldn't have found a better place to stay. The penthouse is clean and modern, with all amenities provided. The location can't be beat, just 5 minutes walk from town but not right in the middle of it, allowing a little peace and quiet away from the partying in the center of town (especially on new year's eve!). While there is parking for a car, I'd recommend not renting one as it's impossible to park in town and you really don't need one. Best of all was the amazing view from the wraparound patio and windows. Took our breath away every day and night. Vudu cafe for breakfast and lunch. Public Kitchen for dinner. Shotover Jet, Milford Sound, Nzone skydiving were all great. The property managers were great but keep in mind they are not a concierge service so you will need to make your own reservations and such.

    Family of 8 adults and we found that there was lots of space for all. The down side was the apartment is very tired and in need of a make over. There was broken glass on our bedroom balcony and stains on one of the bedroom floors. This we found very disappointing.

    • Manager Responded on 10/28/2014

      Thank you for taking the time to review. We have forwarded your concerns regarding the apartment's maintenance to the owner, and understand that our team rectified the glass issue for you. Best regards - Goodstays Queenstown

    Maybe an outdoor gas heater for the winter months would be nice to enjoy the beautiful views from the balcony

    a guest from Gladstone, QLD recommends this vacation rental

    Great location, would stay again, the set up is great for groups, with cinema room, foxtel and stereo throughout. Kitchen and laundry facilities great, only negatives was only having one key for four different couples, reception can't help as private owned room, Toilet in front room constantly emptied then filled up causing water run noise, personally didn't like the skylights in the front rooms as you get no sleep ins after big night in queenstown with sun glaring straight above bed, on flip side good if not partying and up early to hit mountains. Overall positives outweigh negatives and would have no hesitation staying here again,

    • Manager Responded on 8/10/2014

      Thank you for your review; we'll be investigating the toilet issue and appreciate you bringing it to our attention. We are aware of the lack of swipe cards for the penthouse, and have been waiting on the owner to confirm new cards; our apologies for the inconvenience.

    I booked through Nick at Goodstays who was excellent to deal with. Upon arrival the place is awesome and our group was blown away by the size, presentation and quality of the unit. I couldn't think of a better spot for larger family's or groups looking to stay in Queenstown (which is also totally fantastic). Can't fault either Goodstays or the Lakefront Penthouse.
