Homestay | Queenstown | #19815
We offer a modern studio unit with separate entry, with all the modcons yet with a feeling of a home away from home. We live on a property where we are returning the environment back to native New Zealand bush, but we also enjoy a garden profuse with flowers and edible plants and fruit in summer. Make use of our large garden and the paths leading to quiet areas, read a book on a comfortable lounger by the stream, eat your meals outside on the table and chairs across the stream, wander around watching and listening to the birds. Great opportunities to photograph tuis, bellbirds, waxeyes, kereru; wood pigeons, and occasionally the reclusive NZ falcon. Our ever growing populations of tuis and bellbirds are a constant delight and they will serenade you with their famous birdsong. You are welcome to view our live feed YOU TUBE TUI HOUSE QUEENSTOWN. Wilson Bay is popular in summer for water sports, and all year round for the Wilson Bay walking tracks and mountain biking tracks. Try your luck fishing in the bay or at one of the many hotspots nearby. We live in close proximity to many other walking, hiking, and mountain biking tracks. Grant is a hiker, mountain biker, hunter, fisherman, was a commercial paua diver for 23 years, and is happy to advise you on all the places to explore during your stay. His floor to ceiling topographical map has been well used! Monica is an avid gardener, artist, manages Southern Lakes Info Centre and she will be happy to assist you in any activities you may wish to try during your stay in New Zealand's adventure capital. We share a private driveway with our neighbours and offer off road parking. FREE WIFI, FreeView TV, use of DVDs and our book library. We have a friendly dog and a cat who thinks he is a dog. If you aren't keen on animals we are happy to keep them away. Cell coverage can sometimes be a bit patchy if you are on Vodafone, but we are happy for you to use our phone if needed. What'sapp, Skype, Viber all work as an alternative.
Special conditions: Smoking is allowed outside only. Pets may be allowed with prior approval, although no pets are allowed on any furniture or beds. Our private driveway is shared by 2 other users, so care needs to be taken. The property has hazards for children; an unfenced deck, steps, a bridge, and a shared driveway. No shoes inside please :-)

The apartment had everything we would want or need. It is cozy and comfortable. We enjoyed the owners' cat and dog as well as the wild birds. There are beautiful walking paths around the property. We also enjoyed walking to the lake for a night star photography session. The location is far enough from Queenstown to be out of the craziness of the city, but close enough for restaurants and stores.
