Studio 28 - The perfect escape

 Very comfortable and well equipped. The location is great,far enough out of Queenstown to be restful but near enough for easy access. 

Studio 28 - The perfect escape

 Had absolutely everything we needed and exceeded our expectations so much we stayed an extra night - total 5 nights. Very comfortable, clean, great shower. Small well stocked kitchenette but enough room to cook meals. Washing machine and dryer in the unit was appreciated. Location is excellent - close to Queenstown but far enough away from the craziness. Parking no problem with dedicated parking space. Safely stored our MTBs on small deck outside unit. Thanks we'll be back. 

The Love Shack... Live  the dream!

 Loved staying out of the busy-ness of Queenstown, and the owner provided a port-a-cot for our wee son. Lovely, clean, and, even though the kitchen is appropriately small for the size of the house, it is well-appointed for longer stays. 

Studio 28 - The perfect escape

 It's a great price, close to Queenstown, nicely appointed, well-lit, with a pretty good view. Washer and dryer works well. 

Studio 28 - The perfect escape

 The property was well laid out, and we throughly enjoyed our stay. 

Studio 28 - The perfect escape

 Great little studio, brilliant for a couples getaway, has everything you need and much more!! Just a little bit out of town, which is great to get away from the madness, not ideal if you want to have a drink or two in town. But would definitely recommend.
