Very impressed with the location, and the situation. Ideal walking distance into town. Premises very clean, well equipped and worked well for our family. And yes ... stunning views!

The pictures don’t lie: the apartment has stunning views over the lake and the mountains, and is cosy enough that we could have sat inside all day admiring the scenery if there wasn’t so much to do outside. The apartment made a perfect base for our family group of six spending a long weekend hiking and skiing around Queenstown: in a nice, very peaceful neighbourhood, but only a 15-20 minute walk or 5 min drive into town. It’s very cleverly laid out over three floors; kitchen is compact but well equipped; living areas are comfortable (with those amazing views); and the garage was really useful for storing our ski gear. Would highly recommend it.

Great apartment. Highly recommended. Deborah has been very responsive throughout the entire stay and we thank her for her hospitality. Will certainly look forward to staying in this apartment the next time if we have the opportunity to visit Queenstown again!

This may be the most beautiful setting of any BnB we’ve stayed in anywhere around the world. The view out the back was spectacular! Easy walk to town through the Queenstown Gardens, and a perfect location.

Beautiful House
Me and my family were having a special trip away for mum. Our family has recieved some sad news recently and so this was our last family trip together. This beautiful house in Queenstown was exactly what we needed. Lovely and close to town, huge facilities, the most stunning view in the world to wake up to. We had such a blast and couldn't thank you enough for the memories we got x so much love thank you
