Beautiful home for our trip to Queenstown with the family. Whole place was immaculate and the surroundings picture perfect

Coralie & Craig Williams
60th birthday celebration
Our stay at the Long House was the perfect place for a 60th birthday get together with friends. There are fabulous views from every room. & the beds were so comfortable with good separation of areas & privacy. .The private BBQ picnic area by the lake was an extra bonus.

Jo Allan
Fabulous stay....once again
This is the second winter holiday we have had in this house and we had another fabulous time in it. Big enough for three families with lots of room so you are not on top of each other. All the wonderful amenities that you want after a days skiing. We all just loved it.

Absolutely gorgeous house to stay in. We were all terribly sad to leave!

Absolutely amazing
An absolutely amazing and luxurious home. We will be back…

Very Stylish
Thanks Deborah, we loved our stay at the long house. It was comfortable for a large family and very stylish. We would return next year without a doubt. many thanks

Spectacular view with panoramic lake front and mountain in the back. Located in a very private gated community only 10 mins drive to shopping area. House is in very good condition and kids love the big lawn. Cant ask for more.

A Beautiful & Special Home
A beautiful and special home. Thoughtfully designed to capture the mountain and lake views from every room. A truly exceptional place. Great value for the price to share with family or friends. A beautiful walk at the bottom of the estate and very comfortable furnishings. Playing tennis and basketball at the court on the grounds was a highlight. Highly recommended.

We loved our week here
The Long House is a large, stylish, immaculate home to sleep ten. We stayed here with two families of five and we were extremely comfortable and happy. All the bedding is beautiful and the beds are really comfy. There’s a very generous supply of essentials (eg cling film, sugar, oil, dishwashing liquid, laundry power etc). The view is gorgeous and you can walk down through the estate to a private bbq picnic area right on the lake, which is a fun thing to do. The Frankton shops are only ten minutes drive for groceries, coffee etc. Jacks Point golf course is next door to the estate and has spectacular golfing, a driving range and a beautiful restaurant. Our kids loved the hot tub! Deborah provides a very comprehensive guide at check in and responded very quickly to any enquiries. If you’ve got a bit of splurge money, I highly recommend the Long House. Note - there is no outdoor wood burning fireplace. We loved our week here and highly recommend.

Fantastic House, breathtaking Scenery
Fantastic house, breathtaking scenery, very private and plenty of space. Highly recommend this property and hospitality by Deborah.

Perfect "home away from home"
The Long House provided us with the perfect 'home away from home' for our family Christmas holiday. The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu presented an amazing 360° backdrop for our stay, and the house was more than we could have wished for. The location provided us with the peaceful surroundings we had wanted during our stay, but with the ability to be get into downtown Queenstown within 20 minutes. Tastefully and respectfully laid out, the house provided everything we needed, and more. A special thank you to Deborah and David from The Butler, for their care and attention to detail, and for making sure we had the most wonderful stay.

Most amazing home base
The Long House provided the most amazing home base for our Queenstown stay. We were a group of 10 consisting of three families and the Long House provided the prefect layout and space for us all to have privacy when we wanted it or communal time together. We couldn't get enough of the 360 degree views and we all enjoyed walks in the peaceful and tranquil gated community. It was so comforting to know that after busy days full of activities and exploring beautiful Queenstown, we were welcomed back to such a lovely home. We would definitely love to visit again!

This place is amazing
This place is amazing, a truly wonderful house in one of the most stunning locations. As we were a group with little children, going out at night wasn't a priority, and the location plus all the amenities in the house made it easy for us to cook every night after a day in the slopes. If you're after the Queenstown night life this may not be the place for you. If, however, you are up for a truly fantastic stay in an amazing house, with a location to dream of, with the assistance of the wonderful Deborah, this is the place. Nothing went wrong, and even when we had a small glitch with the heating, it was resolved in no time and with a huge smile. Honestly, one of the best experiences you can have if you are for a relaxing and yet exciting time away from home.

A truly memorable and wonderful experience
A truly memorable and wonderful experience. The Long House is beautiful - impressive and spacious design, luxurious facilities, stunning location overlooking the lake and mountains. The outdoor spa was a real highlight, as was the bathtub in the master bedroom that opened out onto the spectacular view. The location is a fairly new development, other houses are close but it is cleverly designed so you can't really see them. The lake is about a five/ten minute walk from the house, which includes a jetty and BBQ facilities - it is at the bottom of a very steep hill. The water is cold but very refreshing and the lake is absolutely stunning - clean, clear water surrounded by gorgeous mountains, beautiful grey stone beach rather than sand. Consistently prompt and professional communication from the host. Clear instructions for operating the house and tips to enjoy the local area.
