The Outlook is perfectly situated on the edge of town, close enough to walk in but far enough to enjoy the peaceful mountain views. Has everything you need to enjoy a great Queenstown holiday.

Awesome place to stay for the whole family. Beautiful fireplace and kitchen very well equipped. Thanks

Our family of 6 was easily absorbed into this house. The underfloor heating always kept the whole house warm, the kitchen was well stocked and everything we needed was there. It’s a tight fit getting a big vehicle inside the garage, but manageable. The different balconies were lovely choices. Deborah was a very responsive and friendly host. The walk into town was easy , on the way back you can avoid the steep hill by waking towards the Queenstown gardens before returning to the road. A great place to stay. Definitely recommended.

Very responsive host, close to town and a great place to stay with 8 guests and a toddler. Plenty of room and amazing views. Lovely amenities, clear instructions and very clean. Would stay again. Thank you :)

We three couples thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Queenstown and this superb apartment with its fabulous views made every afternoon after touring around even better. The apartment’s 3 bathrooms suited us perfectly and parking was easy. Roadworks made access difficult but that wasn’t the fault of the host. The veranda was where we spent a lot of time, with a few beers and wines late afternoon enjoying the incredible view. We’d all definitely recommend this apartment to any groups or 3 couples visiting Queenstown.

Marvelous accommodation with stunning views, within walking distance to the town centre and lake.

The house was excellent. great views, well set up and felt right a home. Deborah was also very accommodating and made very thing very easy

Wow! Fantastic modern townhouse, even better than the photos. Great location and very clean. Beautifully appointed. Deborah is a lovely host with lots of detail in her communication and extremely prompt in replying. Highly recommend for large groups.

Highly rate our stay here, clean and comfortable! Location was easy to locate and walk to town. Set back off the main road it was super quite and love the separation of space!! I would definitely stay here again :)

Excellent apartment in every way and dealing with Deborah was a pleasure. Highly recommended.

Perfect for a group holiday- plenty of space to spread out. Amazing views from the living area/ balcony. Great fireplace and underfloor heating. Every kitchen utensil you could want. Perfect distance from town (10 min walk). Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Awesome location with short walk to town and ample room for a big family. Very comfy and loved the heated floors

Stunning veiws, great location to the center of town and a beautiful house

The Outlook
The house was near perfect. Comfortable and warm, plenty of room, log fire and amazing views of the lake and mountains. We had the best of times. Bathrooms are all good. In fact the only thing we could comment on was the knives in the kitchen were a little blunt! Hardly a game changer! Thank you, "we will be back"

Brianna Tuffery
great home
more than we expected! great sized accomodation for large families, or groups, house was warm and had underfloor heating which helped us not have to light the fire each night. one thing to note when you do light the fire is to make sure the wood is sitting right at the back it got a bit smokey for us, other than that the house had all we needed!

Fantastic Space and Location
This property was spacious and very well equipped, we had our 3 adult children and their partners with us and it worked perfectly, easy parking was a great benefit , loved our stay here .

Another Fabulous Stay
Second visit to The Outlook for us this year and again it was absolutely fabulous. It is always super clean and tidy when we arrive and it is has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing home away for home stay. We even got to use the back courtyard this time and it is a little sun trap and very private. We'll be back!

Rachel Walters
Weekend getaway
The Outlook was perfect for our family getaway. The house was comfortable, warm, spacious and incredibly well equiped. The location was excellent and an easy walk to town. The desk/study in the master room was an added bonus and meant I could work from home. Will definitely choose The Outlook again.

Spacious, comfortable and close to town.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Outlook. It is very spacious, clean, tidy and has everything you need. The views are beautiful. The fireplace amazing. The beds are super comfy. Loved the spa bath. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. We will definitely be back.

Sam & Phirum Moeung
Perfect location in Queenstown.
Great location only a short walk into Queenstown centre. Amazing views overlooking the lake. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need, warm with underfloor heating in most rooms and a fireplace in the living room - perfect for the cold winter in Queenstown. Electric blankets and luxurious bedding throughout. We had a family of 6 and there was ample room for everyone. We would highly recommend the outlook.
