Central Carefree Hideaway

 Only a stone's throw away from the township in Queenstown, tucked away in a quiet street. The property was clean and very well maintained. 

Affordable Luxury w Magnificient Lake and Mt Views

 Location is more about the view than being close to town. the batch came with basic coffee and tea making facilities which was a nice surprise. 

Esplanade Residence 6 - Lake Front Queenstown

 Close (easy walking distance) to town. the property has been well maintained and comes with everything you need 

9b Apartment on Von

 Stayed here in mid April for three nights in unseasonably bad weather with snow on balcony on arrival! Great to hunker down in lovely modern apartment with fantastic views. Easy access to town centre if you have a car, easiest to park just down the hill and stroll to town. Great for a family to spread out compared to a motel, though not so ideal for families with very young children as the master bedroom is top floor, with second two bedrooms two levels below. 

Lakefront Holiday Home

 Great place, well set out with living downstairs and dining up top, amazing views. Stairs and driveway no issues at all. Great place would love to return 

Funky, Central Queenstown Holiday Home

 Great location, house was beautifully presented, clean, comfortable, and warm
