cute cottage, cosy and affordable

 Clean, convenient. 

Coronet Lodge SKI / RELAX / WARM

 Property is spectacular, location is perfect. Just far enough out of the main part of Queenstown to be peaceful but close enough to all the action as well (5min walk to the Shotover Jet, 10min drive to Q-town itself, 15min to Arrowtown) Kitchen/Dining room is a particular highlight, excellent for large family meals and opening out to the backyard for a very inclusive feel during meal times. Highly recommended for a family getaway. 

 Maytime Cottage Arrowtown

 Perfect location, perfect house, perfect holiday. Could not fault the cottage. We felt very at home and everything was there we could ever need. The whole group were blown away and it really made our holiday. Thankyou!

Detached one bedroom character cottage with garden

 The location was extremely handy to the centre of town and yet quiet and peaceful at night. The cottage had loads of charm and character, something we always value, and was well equipped, cosy and warm. A lovely touch was the "taste of Nelson" - Nelson Pantry - a selection of local produce available to enjoy whilst we stayed. Loved the Pic's Peanut Butter! We had a warm welcome from the owner and very much enjoyed our stay.
