Paddy's Cottage, Fruitlands Alexandra

 Cottage is historical, very comfortable with a gorgeous courtyard and garden in a stunning part of the country. 

Stunning Panoramic Views and a Swimming Pool!

 Fantastic spot with excellent, clean accommodation and a wonderful pool. Perfect week away for all of the family and ideally located for exploring the region. Thanks very much Gina. 


 Comfortable, clean, everything there you would need and all in good working order. Nice setting. Ideal accommodation for a couple and a very short drive to central Nelson. 

Alpine Retreat - Alpine Avenue - Mountain Views

 The Alpine retreat is a classic. The name says it all. It has everything you need and is very clean and tidy. Will come back one day. 

Queen Charlotte Breakaway Bach

 Fantastic hosts. Enjoyed the privacy of being met and greeted but then left alone. 

Funky, Central Queenstown Holiday Home

 The house is neat and tidy and with modern fittings. The beds are extremely comfortable and the shower powerful. The only letdown was the noise from neighbours but that can't be helped at New Years. Would recommend to others and would consider staying here again if we are to visit Queenstown.
