Dingle Beach House Kaka Point

 Close to everything.... wonderful 

Modern, Architecturally designed Queenstown house

 Very clean, comfortable and stylish property. Well equipped. Really enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely come back. Location very convenient for central Queenstown. Would have been nice to have free wi-fi rather than being charged extra. 

Kakanui - Modern, Sunny Coastal Escape

 Cracker-Nui is the BEST! It is a beautiful bach with an amazing view of the beach. So relaxing. We had such a lovely weekend, it was such a shame we had to leave!!! The property is lovely. Comfortable and clean with everything you could possibly need! The location is fantastic and it is an easy walk to the beach. 

Oakura Opulence, holidaying in style

 Great accommodation, very stylish and modern. Great location with everything you need in the little township right across the road. 

Sawdon - Shearing Quarters Farm Cottage

 The space and comfort of the place. Rustic and basic, perfect for the week away. 

Pipi Villa - a special home for a family holiday

 Location is great, so easy to walk into town and down to the lake for a swim. No noise is a bonus. House is lovely and sunny with a great deck for evening meals. Beds so comfortable, we really didn't want to leave. I would highly recommend a stay at Pipi Villa
