Queen Charlotte Breakaway Bach

 Close to the Queen Charlotte Track and Picton and very peaceful. 

Delightful quiet cottage

 Warm and welcoming. 

contemporary modern aprtment with stunning views.

 We had a wonderful stay, thanks Steve and Lee for making us feel welcome 

Historic Stone Cottage

 Right on Main Street Clyde where it's all happening, and it isn't as noisy as you would expect. It is beautifully maintained, with yummy shortcake to welcome you -- but it's quite a tight space in bedroom once you get suitcases in. 

Lakeside Maisonette, Queenstown

 Stunning view. Complete privacy. Luxurious shower and towels. Comfy bed. Nice fireplace with a generous supply of wood. Workable kitchen. A little far from town though and Queenstown is not easy to park in. 

contemporary modern aprtment with stunning views.

 Amazing place, incredible views, beautifully presented and very fresh and modern. Pool and sauna were an excellent surprise. Extremely comfortable and warm. Wish we could have stayed longer!
