Despite a misunderstanding at the beginning of our trip, Goodstays Wanaka sorted the problem and we stayed in this quaint, genuine 1960's kiwi bach with a million dollar view. The property was clean and tidy but be warned, the driveway is steep and a bit awkward.

Dear Jo, Thank you for your review and great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Avatar By The Lake. Happy to hear your problem was solved. Driveways certainly can be a bit awkward in this mountainous town, I trust you were pro at navigating it by the end of your trip :-) We look forward to hearing from you next time you plan a visit to either Queenstown or Wanaka. Warm Regards, Goodstays
