Stunning Mountain and Lake Views

 My family of 8 adults stayed here and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house has an amazing view and is very handy to Central Queenstown and the airport. It is well equipped, clean and tidy and provided us with everything we needed. We enjoyed the view while sitting having a glass of wine and nibbles at the large table on the front deck each evening. Home away from home! 

Lakeside Maisonette, Queenstown

 A very special bach - spectacular views from every room of a house that is both stylish and comfortable. 

Affordable Luxury w Magnificient Lake and Mt Views

 Amazing view...right on the walking path and very quiet... 

Esplanade Residence 6 - Lake Front Queenstown

 Perfect location - short walk to the city centre, opposite the lake so therefore picturesque, great layout, appealing colour scheme, quality furniture and clean. 

Affordable Luxury w Magnificient Lake and Mt Views

 Compact modern studio unit with amazing view. Five minute drive from central Queenstown. Unit was clean & although located off a main road was very quiet. Thought it was good value for money. 

Great Value in Queenstown Town Sleeps 10

 Spacious, well equipped house in good location
