Beautiful and tranquil Kingston is the perfect place for quality relaxation yet so central to the action and vibe of Queenstown.

This North facing cottage offers a beautiful and quaint place to base your Queenstown Lakes adventures or just to rest and revitalize.

Enjoy the silence and stunning views from the deck, or enjoy a wine a good conversation and a movie in front of the fire on a cool evening.

Take a stroll up to our local store for a drink and bite to eat or grab what you need for a family picnic on the beach.

Great location for summer AND winter with only a 30 minute easy drive to Frankton/Queenstown and just 20-25 minutes to the Remarkables Ski Area access road.

  • The location was fantastic but we were very disappointed when we arrived...

    The location was fantastic but we were very disappointed when we arrived as the house did not live up to the way it was depicted in the advertising. It did grow on us over the 8 days there but a fair bit of work needs to be done to tidy it up without losing the rustic charm of the property. We were grateful to have firewood left for us, kindling would have been useful too though. Awesome outlook though ??

    Great feedback thanks Caznfrank. I was pleased to have been able to sort things out promptly for you. I just purchased the property and it was unfortunate that your stay was booked with the previous owner/advertising of the property and that I took possession of both only after you had arrived. Since your stay we have been refreshing the cottage and garden, and the advertising is now 'current' and clear. By Easter WIFI will also be available. Would love you to return. Thanks Haggis1

  • Nice view on the lake with a marvellous terrace

    Nice view on the lake with a marvellous terrace. We loved the living room with the doors that could be removed. So in the lounge you were living outside, beautiful!

  • Laid back and simple Bach

    Laid back and simple Bach. Away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown and the temporary traffic jams caused by construction work around the airport. Recommended for those who enjoy quiet and privacy.

  • Rustic but charming bach

    Rustic but charming bach. Location was beautiful with great views. Quiet and secluded. Unfortunately, the washing machine did not work and as we were there for a week, this was difficult. We enjoyed the village of Kingston and found the people very friendly.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The fault with the Washing machine was attempted to be fixed by the previous owner, but was promptly replaced with a new one when it could not be repaired. 'Lithgae' since your stay is now under new ownership. Thanks Haggis1
