I got the lie in that I wanted but I was wide awake from 8am! It's always typical when you try to sleep in after lots of early mornings and you simply can't. Daisy was up early as she had a Children's First Aid course to attend. I booked to do CrossFit because well, I haven't done it since that fateful day last week and I didn't have work until 3 this afternoon. It's come to the end of my trial month and despite a few blips and clash of personalities, ...
... inside and looking out the window and seeing the snowy mountains and half depleted snowmen outside. My lessons commenced and they went pretty well. It's breast stroke this week and probably the stroke I can teach best. Although I'm a perfectionist when it comes to it I am nevertheless patient with those who struggle to turn their toes out. I want them to just be able to do it properly. After two hours of teaching I cleared up and headed for home. ...
... Rotorua has picked up nickname of Rotten Egg City and the title says it all really. I choose something else and that was to go to Hobbiton for the afternoon. A few of us get onto a shuttle bus for a 45 min ride out of town. The area is exactly like the Shire, lush greenery and all these tiny hills, more mounds really. So the story goes that Peter Jackson was flying around NZ looking for sites to film Lord of the Rings, when he came across this spot. So he knocked and the farmers ...
... kitted out in camo gear with a rifle strapped to his back pack as he heading into the beech forest to attempt to "cull" an introduced pest. Our return to Queenstown followed a twisting and turning series of valleys and gorges, climbing to over 1,000 metres before beginning a zig zagging descent down to the valley floor and joining the main road back to our hotel. We stopped along the way to book a table at Rata, a restaurant ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Oaks Shores Queenstown
Thoroughly agree with all other positive reviews, this place is utterly wonderful. The apartment was fantastic, amazing views, beautiful furnishings, masses of space. We've stayed in a lot of apartments during our 4 months of travel and this was by far the best.
This complex is made up of privately owned 3 bed apartments, one of the bedrooms being a studio unit with its own separate entrance that can be let separately. We had booked a one bedroom apartment and as we walked into the apartment we immediately had a 'wow' moment. There is a fully fitted kitchen area at the rear of the lounge area with fridge/freezer, 2 small dishwashers (1 on top of the other), food disposal unit and a washing machine and tumble dryer cunningly concealed in a cupboard. The view from the lounge area is wonderful and there is a plasma tv screen on the wall and also in the main bedroom. Our only complaint was that apart from a very small built in hanging robe in the main bedroom, there was no storage space. This problem was resolved when they opened up the second bedroom for us and the receptionist said they had received a lot of complaints about the lack of drawer/cupboard space and it was a subject up for discussion at the next owners' meeting. Apart from that niggle we had exceptionally good value by doing a late booking through the Wotif website. We liked the out of town location of Oaks Shores as it didn't take very long to drive into Queenstown and at the time we were there parking wasn't a problem. Might be different in the peak months. Overall, it is an excellent place to stay and unless you want to be in the heart of Queenstown, you won't do better.
We stayed at the Oaks Shores apartment for 6nights during June this year.
I must say this is probably the best apartment for our south island trip. We were given a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was comfortable and the view outside was refreshing. It helps that the apartment is pretty new and there was a good price promotion when we made our reservation (we booked directly from the property).
You Won't Want To Leave
This is the type of place that once you walk in you won't want to leave. Fantastic property. I booked after reading the previous reviews and thay are all spot on. There is not much more I can add. Wine on the balcony over looking the fantastic views, fire burning at night while listening to the surround sound system.
Extremley comfortable in all aspects. Congratulations to the management for a fine establishment and to the decorator for the ambience. Well done. We didn't want to leave.
While it is a little way out of town, it takes 20-30min along the walking track, don't let this put you off and if you are going to Queenstown...stay there !!!
My partner and I spent 6 nights at the Oaks during the last week of August. It had the "wow" factor as soon as we opened the apartment door. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment (without asking), the facilities in the apartment were great, everything looked brand new. There is nothing else we could have asked for, it had everything we needed. Definitely most welcoming after a day's skiing.
I would recommend this to anyone who would like 5 star accommodation, without the 5 star price.
Husband & I stayed for a week at Oaks Shore Apartments during early August 2006. We too were given free upgrade to a 2-bed apartment. Agree with all previous posts - apartments very well appointed, with brand new appliances (with washing & dishwashing powders provided). Plasma screens, remote controlled fire place. And the best thing - the fantastic views from the large lounge window and balcony. Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables were stunning any time of day.
Loved our week at this property. Modern, clean, stylish and lots of space. We were upgraded to 2 bedroom apartment. Views from the balcony (we were on the 8th floora) were superb - we loved being on the lake edge. Plasma tv in the longue & bedroom, gas cooker, washer & dryer - everything was so new.
Absolutely stunning. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, was amazed when I entered the room. All furnishings were new and modern, Flat screen tv's, remote control fireplaces, new kitchen and fantastic washing facilities. The view is fantastic. Great for families and groups.
Great apt, very spacious , luxurious, modernly decorated. All apt face the beautiful lake wakatipu. Apt is new, so all facilities are in good condition. Highly recommended.
Location - 5-10 minutes drive to city centre. 10 mins drive fm the airport.
