Highview Retreat is a modern, well-appointed, 7 bedroom, 6.5 bathroom apartment style holiday home with million dollar views over the Remarkable mountain range and Lake Wakatipu.

Perfect for celebrations like an anniversary or special birthday with lots of room and a gorgeous backdrop for photographs. Relax in our 5 person spa overlooking the lake and mountains after a day out hiking, skiing, biking or shopping!

There is an open fire in the main living area and television with Freeview. This living room has floor to ceiling windows and a view over the pond and creek beside the house as well as views over the lake and toward the Remarkable Mountains. There is access to the balcony which has the barbecue and an outdoor table and chairs. The sun pours into the open plan kitchen-dining and into the living area in the morning. The balcony is a fabulous sunny spot for breakfast. There is second living area on a lower level which also has Freeview TV and an electric fire. There are two fully fitted kitchen-dining areas. (perfect for two families holidaying together).

There are 5 king bedrooms with ensuites. A queen room has an adjoining bathroom and a twin bedroom shares an adjacent toilet. Two of the king rooms also have a bath inset into the window with a view out over the lake.

Most of the bedrooms enjoy the spectacular views over the lake to the Remarkables. Your morning cuppa in bed will never be the same without that view! Watch the planes on their approach into the airport. They are almost at eye-level!

"Fantastic house in Queenstown!!!!We stayed for our first family holiday and it more than comfortably took 12 people. Every family had their own bathroom and the kids(and the adults) all had room to relax and play without disturbing each other. I highly recommend this house and will definitely be back for another visit with friends."

  • An amazing location - we had a lot of family visit from...

    An amazing location - we had a lot of family visit from the UK for mine and my partner's wedding and this house was perfect in every way. Enough room for us not to be treading on each other's toes - INCREDIBLE views AND a hot tub! Loved the fact that there were two large kitchen areas and the bedrooms were all of good size. We maxed the house out numbers wise and it was still more than comfortable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

  • Fantastic place for extended families to stay together

    Fantastic place for extended families to stay together. Everyone had their own space. Kitchen was well equipped, plenty of firewood, lovely spa and comfortable beds. Far enough out of the busyness of the city but also extremely close to all amenities. Amazing views from most of the rooms. Lovely and warm. Great.
