We were delighted with the perfect location, close to town and the lake and fantastic views. The house was totally charming, a delightful retro feel with all conveniences. A warm house welcomed us in, obviously well-managed and set up to make us feel at home.

The Hidden Gem is a quirky cottage with the most amazing view over the lake from the deck, where we spent many happy hours! A few more amenities such as bedside lights would have made it more comfortable but the view more than made up for that!

Total RnR on in this little homely crib situated above the lake and an easy stroll to the park, town and bars. Perfect for our family and friends to wind down after a busy year!

The Hidden Gem has lovely views of Wanaka and the lake and is an easy walk into town. It was very comfortable for our winter stay. We were warm and cosy with the open fire and heaters supplied. The house had everything we needed for self-catering. It is clean and tidy.

Fantastic location, driveway was quite hard to find and steep, but worthwhile once at the top. The open fire was fantastic and great wood supply,but needed a decent axe. Heating needs addressing for rest of house, as do the kitchen pots etc. Bunk room needs better beds and broom was a car cleaning brush tied to a pole. Cleaners forgot to leave garbage bag. Very handy to town, restaurants and mountains for snowboarding. Would definitely return if beds were upgraded and would recommend to friends

Great location to stay during warbirds, nice view of the lake, especially while having a BBQ.
Short walk into town too.

There is no lighter for the BBQ supplied.

The beds in the master bedroom and twin bedroom where found to be a bit uncomfortable.

Nick at Goodstays replied…

Dear Robert, Thank you for your review and great to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Hidden Gem. As you say the location and views are fantastic. I am sorry to hear about the lighter for the BBQ, if you were to have let us know we would have sent one out to you straight away. I have informed our guest services team and this should soon be rectified. I will also certainly pass your feedback regarding the beds on to the owner. We look forward to hearing from you next time you plan a visit to either Queenstown or Wanaka. Warm Regards, Goodstays

Good location for views over the lake and short walk to the town's facilities. But the photos online are misleading - there's a construction site next door which, though not noisy when we stayed, means there's no privacy in the garden. Cleanliness could be better - some cobwebs and dirty kitchen equipment - and it would be useful to have bedside lights.

Thank you for choosing to book with us here at Goodstays and for taking the time to leave us some feedback, Gerry. Wanaka is a growing town and there is constantly new housing being built- this is something which is beyond our control and unfortunately if we were to take new photography every time a building went up we would constantly be re shooting. In regards to the cleaning, our housekeeping team works very hard to ensure our properties are immaculate for each guest's arrival so I am surprised to hear this was the case for you, had you given us a call to let us know we would have been more than happy to send someone from our Guest Services team to the property to resolve these issues. I hope you enjoyed your time in spectacular Wanaka and wish you all the best for your onward travel, Caitlin-Goodstays.
