First guests welcomed at new Queenstown luxury apartments

Luxury apartments VillageQueenstown.com welcomed their first guests after officially opening the lakefront accommodation complex last Friday (June 28).

Village Queenstown, a brand developed by local boutique apartment management company Staysouth.com, provides fully-appointed two, three, four, five and six-bedroom apartments in a self-contained apartment complex located at Queenstown’s Kawarau Village.

Australian guests living in Singapore were welcomed to the Penthouse Suite – a lavish three-ensuite bedroom apartment featuring uninterrupted views of Lake Wakatipu – with a bottle of Moet champagne as they arrived at the resort for their Queenstown ski holiday.

Village Queenstown opened last week for the first time. There are 28 five-star apartments in the complex – with most of them being managed by Staysouth.

Suites are already in demand – advanced bookings are strong, according to Staysouth general manager Sonya Archibald.

“Queenstown tends to book out in advance of the winter season so these apartments have been a welcome addition providing top-quality capacity. We’re pleased with our early forward bookings, and because it’s a new complex, there are still apartments available for this winter for people to take advantage of the great snow conditions.”

Village Queenstown’s opening has been made possible by StaySouth.com, which was recently appointed as exclusive managers for the visitor accommodation market of the Reserve Central, Reserve South East and Reserve South West buildings in the complex.

“Kawarau Village is on the sunny side of Lake Wakatipu – just an eight-minute water taxi ride, 12-minute drive or 20-minute bus ride to central Queenstown. The apartments are fitted to five-star standard and are perfect for family holidays, friends on ski trips, group bookings or really any break in Queenstown. The beauty of Village Queenstown is its tranquil, sun-drenched location with wonderful facilities at your doorstep. Village Queenstown and Kawarau Village challenges the perception that people need to stay right in town,” Archibald says.

Staysouth also manages luxury apartments LakeRidge Condos and Esplanade Queenstown in downtown Queenstown.

“We are a local boutique apartment management company specialising in apartment style accommodation. We’re delighted to add Village Queenstown to our portfolio of apartments – all of our staff are long-term local people who are passionate about our environment – this helps us ensure our guests have the support and information they need to have a memorable holiday.”

About Village Queenstown
Centrally-located between both The Remarkables, Coronet Peak ski areas and handy to Cardrona Alpine Resort, the services offered onsite at Kawarau Village mean Village Queenstown guests can purchase or hire ski gear and get it tuned from nearby Browns Ski Shop at Kawarau Village. The 28 apartments across the three apartment blocks are in the process of being sold down to individual owners by Ray White Queenstown. If people wish to buy an apartment they don’t have to be managed as part of the rental pool.
