Apartment 4 on Conical

 I stayed with my 4 children for 4 nights. This apartment is in a great location/walking distance to everything in Hanmer. It would have been nice to have one more chair at the table( only 4 chairs) but I guess its ideally suited to 4( 2 queen beds) but 5 does work. The fold out ottoman I slept on was absolutely fine. We loved our stay here and look forward to staying again. Nice not to worry about linen and cleaning. Great heat pump for the cooler evenings and we did have some snow too. 

Boutique waterfront apt, free Wifi, parking.

 Very nice apartment with great location 

Located in the Avenues close to the City

 Lovely warm, clean house that suited our needs perfectly. Had the best sleep ever in the comfy bed! We will definitely stay here again whenever we visit Christchurch as it was close enough to all the places we visit. 

Modern Luxury minutes from Central Queenstown

 Jason was awesome and the apartment was 100% perfect for our family. Close walking distant to the town. Fully decked out for cooking in the kitchen should you wish to. Spot on bedrooms and bathrooms. Well presented all round and the view, well that was amazing.....totally loved it.....will def be back to stay again.....HOT spot. 

Breathtaking lake views - short walk into town.

 The property has more than enough space for all the 10 of us. Very close from town. The view is so picturesque!Stunning I must say. The house itself is very modern in decors, child-friendly and spacious. A very homey, comfortable and accommodating place to stay. Highly recommended. 

Located in the Avenues close to the City

 The Location was very good, nice and close to most places we needed to go. Car parking was a bit hard at times, but being the Easter hoildays was probaly to be expected. The Kids LOVED the stairs lol, and want to live there. I found the bed to be excellent, very compfy for a bed thats not yours, normally beds in other accomadtion we have uesed are not very good at all. And everything there to use that makes your stay more enjoyable. Thanks very much =)
