Short Description

Modern 3 bedroom house with amazing views


This brand new 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home is located on Queenstown Hill and has some of the best views in town. From its elevated position the property boasts spectacular views over Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range.
The house has been tastefully fitted out with all the creature comforts of home. If you make this your home away from home and you won't be disappointed.
Professional cleaners and hired linen ensure our home is up to the highest standards and COVID protocols.


Someone from The Butler will meet guests on arrival - so please provide travel details. Then we will be just a phone call away. Subject to COVID19 regulations the meet & greet may not be possible but we will advise in advance of any changes.


Queenstown Hill is also known by its Māori name of Te Tapu-nui (mountain of intense sacredness), It is a small 907 metres (2,976 ft) mountain in Queenstown. There are many houses on the hill but all activities and restaurants are in the town centre. You can walk into town from the house but be aware coming back up the hill can be a challenge you may want to take the short 5 minute taxi ride instead.


Other than a locked storage cupboard, guests have full access to the house and garage.


This is a modern 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home with stunning views. The magnificent views and easy access to the town centre makes it a great option for guests from all over New Zealand and the World.
Modern contemporary design set across multiple levels well suited for families or couples that want to relax and unwind in a prime Queenstown location.
Reverse Cycle heating/cooling system helps keep the house at a comfortable level year round and the gas fire adds to the ambience.

A cot and highchair can be hired from The Butler - please enquire.


Although you can walk walk into Central Queenstown it is a tough walk back up the hill home however it is just a 5-7 minute drive.
Taxi cost from airport is about $25
Parking for two guest vehicles one in the garage and one on the parking area outside. Please do not block the driveway with your cars. We would recommend 4WD vehicles in the winter as the driveway can get icy.


Please note that the house does have a lot of stairs so not suitable for those with mobility issues. Although we welcome families you will need to watch your little ones on the stairs.
Please note there is some construction happening next door.
This is not a party house.

This is an exceptional place in an exceptional location. The views out of the picture windows really are as good as they look in the listing and better. The house has lots of features which make it a very comfortable stay (lovely gas fireplace, sophisticated integrated central heating system, separate laundry and drying room, top of the range dishwasher etc). Although it’s quite steep in places, we found it walkable to/from the town (and at least one supermarket delivers there) and it’s also less than 10 minutes from the airport by car. Deborah is a dream to deal with. There are lots of stairs inside the property so it may be tricky for guests with mobility issues but it’s a 10/10 from us.

Stunning home away from home. Kept beautifully with great amenities. Woke up every morning to immaculate views of the lake and the gas fireplace was perfect for those chilly evenings. Host very responsive and helpful. Definitely would recommend and stay again.

What a view...and what a wonderful place. As soon as we stepped into the home overlooking the water and majestic mountains we felt right at home. Everything was there to start enjoying our stay in Queenstown. High end furnishings and modern fully equipped kitchen, but did I say...What a view. Deborah made this a highlight of our stay in New Zealand with all the suggestions available for activities and restaurants. Would not hesitate to stay agian if we make it back. Thanks

This Queenstown stay was a highlight of our trip, with some incredible views overlooking the lake. The space itself is clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary utensils and cooking supplies. I highly recommend this stay, and would love to stay again one day.

This is one of the best Airbnb’s that we’ve stayed at. Words can’t describe how good you feel in this space. It has everything you need and Deborah provided great support and comprehensive information. This was our last stop on a 23 day journey from the north to the South Island and we wanted to end our trip with a special experience. This house exceeded our expectations and we simply loved staying there.

One of the most beautiful places we have stayed. So well appointed and the most breathtaking views. We were blown away by everything!! Highly recommend and will be back for sure!

There is nothing I can ask more from this Airbnb home: Breathtaking views, nestled in a quiet and private neighbourhood, amazingly spacious home spread over 5 levels, full amenities (that is an understatement), superbly responsive and friendly host (Deborah is fantastic!), extremely comfortable beds, and a lot more. Honestly, this home was the reason why I felt there was less need to travel out to explore Queenstown and the surroundings - it was simply a holiday on its own! Thanks Deborah for the wonderful experience - I certainly look forward to be back one day. :)

Fantastic place to stay
This is an absolutely sensational place to stay. Everything from the booking, communication with the property manager, check in information and everything in the property is top notch. The views are beautiful. We will definitely stay again.

This is our 2nd stay at Lofty Heights and it was a great as the 1st time. Clean, well equipped and amazing views. What we noticed this time was how quick it is to walk into town. Even walking back uphill was easy. Support from the Butler property management is flawless from helping with switching off the alarm to providing an extra nights stay because flights were cancelled. All in all 10 out of 10.

Amazing stay
Spectacular views. Ultra clean and well speced property. A home away from home. Easy access to the centre of town by 20 min walk or 5 min cab ride. There was absolutely nothing this property fell short of. A definite repeat visit.

Great Base
Lofty Heights is a great base for a Queenstown stay. Hosts were extremely helpful and communication was clear and prompt. A warm and relaxing house with every amenity you’ll need. Close to town and of course the views are great. Beds are super comfortable

Myles Dalton
Wow, simply Amazing!!!
Stunning views while also close to town. The modern amenities and design give the luxury of a five star hotel but with relaxing comfort of home.

Beautiful Home
Beautiful home, very clean and modern amenities. Perfect Location.

This house is beautiful
'The house is beautiful with stunning view. Excellent location. It is quiet and peaceful and has all facilities we need for family. Highly recommend.'

Wow! This stay was worth every penny. Amazing amenities, beautiful, beautiful house and stunning view. Nice and easy drive to town. Would definitely stay again!

Beautifully presented
'Beautifully presented space with stunning views. Upstairs bedroom is a sanctuary. Everything provided, so set up for a short or long stay. Netflix easy to use on a rainy day and lots of comfy spots for curling up with a book. Host easy to communicate with and very accommodating of requests. Thanks for having us!'

We absolutely loved our stay
We absolutely loved our stay at this amazing property. The house and the view were amazing just like on the photos if not better. What made our stay truly outstanding compared to any other Airbnb stay we had previously are the fine touches of Deborah. She met us on arrival and ran us through important instructions relating to the property. She had a little folder organized ( the best we have seen so far) giving really valuable local tips that we found very useful despite having been to QT multiple times before. All essential toiletries and pantry items including coffee pods were supplied. She gave us tips on which vineyards we should visit on our last day. Always communicated promptly and in a super helpful and friendly manner. If I had an Airbnb property I would definitely want someone like Deborah to manage it. She really made all the difference to our stay. Thank you, we hope to stay here again!

Brent Fearon
Loved it and loved the extra mile that Deb went too in order to make the experience even better.

Amazing spot
Yes the stay was amazing and terms of a place to stay. Wow. The amazing views, the awesome new set up in terms of all of the furniture and technology just being first class. The views are absolutely amongst the very best in Queenstown. When you bring that together with a really beautiful home you’re in for a great stay. The support from The Butler was really cool as well. Only a couple of questions, but really prompt responses just added to the stay.

Family stay at Lofty
Absolutely awesome experience at Lofty, the house is fantastic - from its location, views, fitout, let alone all the great touches such as the drying cupboard for wet gear. Plenty of stairs, but our 7 and 10 year old girls had no problems with it, highly recommend, definintely be back

I enjoy our stay so much I have recommended this house to my friend who will book for sure for next school holiday.

Wonderful Stay
wonderful stay at this beautiful house! great living and kitchen area with everything you need. spectacular views! Beds were good, single beds a bit hard after a day skiing.

New & Clean
This is an amazing place to live in. You can enjoy the best view of Queenstown. It is new and clean. Deborah provided a cot for my 2 year old baby. We really enjoy the new kitchen and AC system. Great place! We would definitely come back again!

The view is incredible
La casa es lo que realmente se ve en las fotos. La vista es increíble, muy cerca del centro y lo suficientemente lejos para tener plena tranquilidad. En la casa todo funciona muy bien Translation (per google translate) The house is what you really see in the photos. The view is incredible, very close to the center and far enough to have complete tranquility. In the house everything works very well
