Central Queenstown, Historic Stone House

 Amazing place to stay. Great location, we stayed 4 nights in the 3 bedroom apt, was a real treat to have fresh towels and beds made everyday. Was like a home away from home. On our last night there we lit the big fire which was bliss. We loved every minute of our stay and can't wait to come back again ??
