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.

A few stops had been suggested by various people, the first was Knight's Point where there is a seal colony, this turned out to be a lookout only and the seals are small dots in the distance so we moved on. The next stop was Ship Creek where it is possible to see Hector’s dolphins which are the smallest dolphins. It was a lovely beach but it …
While Tim & Eric took in another day of skiing, I took in the Winter Celebration in town . Winter is serious business here! Midtown Olympics consisted of DRAG races (literally) town leaders in drag on the ice. Waiters racing thru tires w/o spilling their trays of vodka and hotel staff dipping into ice buckets to find a frozen key to unlock treasure chests.

... on a run. The walk was completely uphill but the views were incredible at the top, definitely worth the effort. Lake Wanaka is really pretty probably our fave place on the South Island so far. When we were reunited back at Base we cooked dinner and then went to the cinema opposite with everyone. The cinema was really cool, it was sofas instead of seats. We watched Insurgent, which was good for everyone who had ...
... to bring them in. Each dog would only answer to its own name and they used two different breeds for the task- one to provide the noise and impetus to the sheep and the other more skilled at manoeuvre. The fact I'm remembering most of what he told us is indicative of the user friendly way he spoke! The sheep were sheared before lambing so the fleeces were in good condition and the sheep shorn closely so that when they limbed they sought protection ...
... br> - there isn't a whole ton you can do there if you don't have a car, but there were two walks ( yippie more walking )
- but thankfully they were only about 10-15 minutes at most, if even that
- then we got on the bus and headed back to te anau
- the day we spent in te anau we didn't really do anything
- we were originally going to do more fiordland stuff, but we were exhausted, and its pretty hard to do anything without a car or a lot of money
