An excellent stay
My friends and I stayed here recently and it was an unforgettable experience. The spacious layout of the house allowed all 8 of us to have our own space, yet still connect and hang out in the common areas. The fireplace was a cozy and welcome touch, especially while looking over the lake and mountains - such a magical view! A short and scenic walk to town made it a convenient and also quiet location. Thank you to the hosts for providing us with an awesome experience. Will stay again next time we are in Queenstown!

Beautiful house with stunning view of lake and snow capped mountains. The house was spacious and the bedrooms over 3 floors worked well with our group. The location was in a quiet residential area but within walking distance to the town. Deborah was a very responsive host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Margaret & Julie Berglund / Fredericks
The house was amazing!! Our family appreciated the space to spread out after a week of traveling in close quarters. Also location can’t be beat! Beautiful walk to downtown. Deb was very responsive and helpful- we only had one question and she helped us immediately. Highly recommend!!

The Ultimate experience
Overwhelmed is an understatement. Normally companies provide imagery that overstates the positive of that particular property - Not here! This house is simply stunning and immaculately presented in every detail. The furnishing are professionally positioned, yet not ostentatious or goudy. It is large in both the bedrooms and living areas. And the views...WOW! For a large family or extended family, this house is perfect in every detail. Even the Deck 146 team dropped in on the afternoon of arrival, just to make sure we were comfortable - 6 star service indeed! This accommodation is one of the best in Queenstown! You would be hard done to find better.

Andrew Hill
Obvious bias but so appreciative of Deb’s superb care of Deck especially over the last 3 years and with the current supercharged numbers of tourists going through Queenstown

Claudia Hill
Amazing property and location!! Highly recommend.

Recently stayed here and it's a very comfortable place for a big family gathering.We loved the space and privacy as the bedrooms were on different levels to the living area.The place is also walkable distance to town.

Perfect for a big family

WInter Ski Trip
Our group of 9 stayed in Deck146 for our annual ski trip. We've stayed in many different places over the years and this is certainly up there as one of the best. The house is extremely spacious, has beautiful views and is a short 10min walk into the centre of town along the lake. I would highly recommend this for large groups, the orientation of the bedrooms, 2 living spaces and several bathrooms means that it never felt overcrowded. Check in was straight forward and Deborah showed us everything around the house that we might need.

Great place… great for big groups

Perfect spot for a family
Great location, very helpful staff. Clean tidy, highly recommended.

Loved the house, great location and house was perfect for what we needed. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Right on the Lake
This property was right on the lake with amazing views. We could stroll in to town in around 15 minutes. The house itself was spacious, warm and inviting. The beds were extremely comfortable and everything was immaculately clean. I would highly recommend this property as long as stairs weren't and issue, as there were a lot of them. We would love to stay there again

This house is really exceptional, the views in particular are outstanding, and the location is not only close to town but also a flat lakeside walk the whole way. We found the house great for kids (2 toddlers and a 3 year old), and great for our large group. Kitchen was easy to use, lots of parking available, a very quiet peaceful location and excellent communication with the host. We had a really great experience here.

An amazing place!
Deck 146 is an amazing place! It has great view and good location for travelers. Deborah is very nice to answer all my questions and give tips for traveling and restaurants suggestions. She also sent the jacket we lost at her house to airport. Kitchen is well-equipment with rice cooker. Bedding is clean and you can change two singles to one double based on your family number.

Truly remarkable stay
Our family of nine people across 3 generations (2 grandparents, 2 parents, 3 young adults and 2 pre-teens) had a truly remarkable stay at this home. The location is a 15 minute walk into town. The walk is along the lake and through the park, so we enjoyed the scenic stroll to and from town. The view the the front deck is 180 degrees of stunning lake, trees and mountainsides and peaks. The fireplace helped clear a cozy fee and the kitchen and back deck patio helped us to keep our big group nourished and happy. The layout of the home is very convenient: all of the kids and young adults slept on one level, the grandparents had an en suite next to the living room and my wife and I took the upstairs bedroom. 3 of the 5 bedrooms had gorgeous views. If you have issues with stairs then this probably isn’t for you, however the grandmother with shaky knees get along just fine. The hosts were friendly and responsive. We highly recommend this home and the hosts.

Amazing for our Group
House was amazing for our group. Very clean and friendly hosts. Would highly recommend

First Class View
非常好的房间,客厅远望景色一流,干净整洁,交通便利,会推荐给后续的朋友。 (Translation) Very good room, the living room has a first-class view, clean and tidy, and convenient transportation, will recommend it to subsequent friends.

Great Location Awesome Views
We were so lucky to be the first guests after the renovations. The house is in a great location and has an awesome view. The owner was very kind and understanding. Would highly recommend.
