Funky 3 bedroom Cottage, close to town with garden

 A great place to stay. Very clean and tidy and extremely convenient for the town centre. Would definitely stay here again. 

Glenorchy Holiday Home

 We liked the property as we could get away from the hussle and bussle in Queenstown. Lovely clean house with comfortable beds and lots of entertainment for the children even down to bath toys of which my grandson loved.

Anderson Apartment

 We found this "bach" to be ideal for our family. We spent loads of time playing pool, ping pong, swimming and tennis with our children. I would consider this place to be family friendly. The units were clean, roomy and fresh. Nice that we had a laundry in the garage. Beds were comfortable and the surrounding units were quiet. The view from the other spa pool (there is two) is amazing. Mountains and a bit of lake. We are considering going back again. 

Fabulous Lakeside 3 bedroom house

 Perfect location and the house very comfortable to stay in would not hesitate to stay again. With the lake across the road, cycling track at the back and walking tracks it gave our boys plenty to keep them occupied. 


 What a fantastic property and location! Close to river and lake, plenty of cycling trails, great walks and swimming spots. The outdoor setting and wood fire was put to good use. Glass of pinot, magnificent view of mountains, could have easily settled in for longer! Sue and Tony.
