Good sized comfortable apartment with good facilities including laundry. Some have good views. We had the two bedroom apartment which has the entrance is through the garage which opens with a remote control. From here there is no lock on the door to the apartment, not sure that is secure. The level of cleaning was not good when we were there, there were cobwebs all along one wall and we had to vacuum when we got there. We were told it was a new cleaning company and they would look into it.

Ed sat out for a bit until he had seen that Tash was having a great time then was keen to get back involved. He enjoyed this 'proper' skiing bit more than the ...
... to find an awesome house and it is just lush. I luckily only had to wait 2 weeks until I found somewhere to live, as some people had been searching for ages and as I came down to Wanaka just before the job started, I've been lucky as most people moved down here weeks before. I live people who work up the mountain and are in F&B but different cafes, so it's great as we don't work and live together but we each know all the gossip from each of ...
... interval, yes interval, you simply can not resist the purchase of a freshly baked cookie, before a friendly attendant makes sure everyone is back, and sitting comfortably before the film recommences. The tickets are $15 and different movies are shown throughout the day. We opted to see the Avengers and the comedy aspect was improved by the genuine laughter of our fellow watchers. It was like one big movie night in someone's rather large lounge. We would highly recommend ...
... and the braking system was setup in a slightly odd way which gave multiple opportunities for overtaking. This was going to be fun! Laura and I quickly developed an intense rivalry swapping wins whilst Bex rose above it all but was still right on our toes. Great fun all round.
After this day of activities we headed into town for a last supper and when we left we saw an advert for the 'ice' bar. We'd never been in one so as we were all trying ...
