Great place to stay in Queenstown, 15 mins walk to the city centre, amazing view from the living room! The host was responsive and provided clear instructions.

Great comfortable place. We loved our stay there and would highly recommend it. The views were awesome and Deborah was great to deal with.

We enjoyed two nights here over the weekend and the place was perfect. Spotlessly clean, really cosy and warm with stunning views. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. We didn't spend a lot of time there as there was so much to do in Queenstown but would have happily spent much more time in the apartment if we'd had the time.

We loved our few days in Queenstown, beautiful apartment, easy check in, beautiful view and nice tidy and clean. Thank you Deborah for been so helpful.

Amazing view of lake from huge sliding glass doors off living room. Instant gas fireplace for cool nights. Incredible views of mountains from upper deck. Perfect spot to share an evening meal or morning coffee. Modern comfortable space within a short walk to town and countless restaurants and activities. Quiet in demand area with dedicated remote door garage. Loved it!

We loved this place. Had everything we needed. Very spacious and easily fit 3 couples without feeling crowded.

Totally recommend deborah’s place. Fabulous location, and the most amazing views . We loved sitting on the deck with our morning coffee looking over the lake. The property was clean, had everything we needed, and I believe was excellent value for money. Would stay again

Fantastic place to stay amazing views, location and very clean and tidy. we had a blast! We will be back

Loved our stay here! Beautiful location definitely would be back in winter as well.

My friends and i just completed a short stay in Queenstown after our Great Walk. This place is as described. The view from the living areas upstairs are excellent. The house was very clean and tidy and also really comfortable. We also appreciated the short walk into the main part of Queenstown. It meant we could leave the car in the garage and enjoy a few drinks with dinner. Overall would highly recommend this place.

Very neat and tidy. We would definitely stay here again. Perfect accommodation for our Queenstown holiday!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. It is very much a 'home from home'....very well equippedand comfortable. Deborah was a fantastic host and could not have been more helpful. Fantastic views over the lake and mountains and a short walk to the centre. It was a pleasure to stay there.

Fantastic apartment with great amenities in an awesome location.

A fantastic base in Queenstown! Views are more breathtaking than the photos. House is immaculate, warm and has all the amenities you need. A nice walk into town.

A great apartment in a great location with a great view of the lake and mountains. Easy walk down the hill to the wharf and all restaurants and bars. The garage and attached drying room for ski gear was an added bonus. Would highly recommend this apartment and Deb was very responsive and an excellent communicator.
