Shotover Villa | Close to Coronet Peak Ski Field


Queenstown, Central Otago, New Zealand

Short Description

3 bedroom town close to ski fields and town


Newly renovated 3 bedroom 2 bathroom property in Arthurs Point with views to Coronet Peak and surrounding mountains. The perfect place to base yourself whether skiing, biking, hiking, golfing or exploring the outer areas of Queenstown. The water at the house is NOT currently affected by Queenstown's Boil water policy as on a separate water system.


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.


Shotover Villa is located in the Arthurs Point area.
"Arthurs Point is a northern suburb of Queenstown, one often missed by many who visit the region. Nestled along the shores of the Shotover River, amongst the hills and forestry of surrounding Queenstown Hill and Bowen Peak, Arthurs Point is about a 5 minute drive from central Queenstown, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the main town. Here you can relax amongst the beautiful scenery, walk the local tracks and bask in the beauty of alpine living." Love New Zealand


Guests have access to the whole property excluding 2 locked cupboards in the garage.


As you open the door to enter Shotover Villa you have the Master bedroom with ensuite to your right and bedrooms 2 & 3 to your left. At the end of the hallway is the 2nd bathroom which you can also access via Bedroom 3. Bedrooms 2 has a single bed and the option of a trundle bed as well. This room boasts a balcony with views to the mountains. Bedroom 3 has 2 singles which can be joined to make a King and has a large window so you can lie in bed and enjoy the view. The Master bedroom has a Queen bed with its own ensuite. This room has access to the courtyard.
As you wind your way upstairs the stairway opens to the living, dining & lounge area which once again have spectacular mountain views and a balcony on which to enjoy them.
There is also a laundry and additional toilet on this level.
The house has recently been renovated and the owner has tastefully decorated it with the artwork on the walls bringing nature to you.
The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, electric oven, gas cooktop, fridge, slow cooker & of course the most important coffee machine! It's not often I find I enjoy standing at the kitchen sink but the views here make it worthwhile - especially if you are enjoying a glass of wine from one of our many vineyards in the area.
The lounge has comfortable couches and chairs to sit around the gas fire or watch TV.
Our garage has a power point in it if you need to charge your electric vehicle/mountain bike or golf buggy.

Please note that the house does have a lot of stairs so not suitable for those with mobility issues. There are a number of stairs to climb to get to this property but once there the views are worth it. Care should be taken on the stairs in winter.
Although we welcome families you will need to watch your little ones on the stairs.

Easy access to the mountain. A lovely place to stay. Like our own private retreat. Found good things to do in Arthur's Point; Onsen Pools, Cargo Gantley's Pub, and a five minute drive into Queenstown. Highly recommend this house.

Shotover Villa has incredible views! It has a very spacious kitchen and heat pumps to keep the house nice and warm. Deborah is a great host and made it very easy for us to check-in and enjoy our stay. Really great location as it's very close to Queenstown's town area. Will definitely be staying again!

Amazing location with some truly breathtaking views, the vale for money on this place is 10/10. newly renovated with a slick clean finish. 15 mins to the top of coronet peak which you can see from inside the house 5 of us stayed their comfortably.

The house was great and Deborah was very helpful

Beautiful house, awesome views and all the creature comfort’s. Definitely recommend for anybody wanting a memorable holiday. Thanks Deb

Such a great place. Perfectly quiet location with a very nice view but still close to town. Would reccomend
