Our New Zealand Escape!


We arrived home Sunday night after a week away in beautiful New Zealand!  This was our first trip to NZ and we loved every bit that we saw.  We stayed here is the gorgeous Rees Appartments on Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown (this photo is of the Lobby).


We had stunning views of the lake and a gorgeous fireplace that warmed us up after long cold days snow skiing up on the mountains!

Loved the oversized glass doors which gave us uninterupted views from almost anywhere in the appartment!


Wishing I was still here!


Not a bad view from the ensuite either...

I would highly recommend these appartments, we were made to feel so welcome and the cheese platter from room service was devine!  See here for more details.

I will definitely check this property out. I haven't been to New Zealand for a while and was just thinking the other day that it would be a nice holiday destination (no jetlag). Now you have done the accommodation research for me, thanks!
