Enjoy an authentic Wanaka experience in our newly renovated, fully contained holiday apartments right in the heart of town.

Contemporary and comfortable home-away-from-home and centrally located in Upton Street so you can walk to Wanaka’s shops, restaurants, bars – and of course, the lakefront!

Renovated in December 2018, our apartments have brand new interiors whilst still retaining their classic Wanaka holiday charm. Warm and cosy after skiing or hiking, and cool and breezy in summer, The Willows Wanaka Apartments are situated on a large 2000 square metre block in the middle of town with spectacular mountain views. The main shopping streets of Wanaka are a 1 minute walk away, and the lake only a few extra minutes. Our sunny apartments are equipped with all the modern comforts you need for the perfect holiday, including new kitchens for those keen to cook at home.

Suitable for couples, families and groups of up to 6 per apartment, the complex sleeps 28 people in total.

The Willows Wanaka Apartments are a fully renovated holiday unit complex with classic Kiwi charm. We have a rich local heritage – we are based on the site of the first motel ever built in Wanaka back in the mid-1950s, The White Elephant.
