The only retreat at the peak.

Nestled atop the exclusive Arthur’s Point suburb, is a luxurious retreat just 7 minutes’ drive from central Queenstown and less than 4 minutes to Skippers Road, the entry point to the Coronet Peak ski resort.

To describe the views as breath taking would be to belittle the spectacular panorama that lies before the visitor. These are indeed the best views in the whole of Queenstown.

Every detail has been catered to. All 4 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and flatscreen televisions. The master bedroom ensuite comes with an open deck spa bath with views of the Shotover valley, the Crown range and Coronet Peak.

Portacots and highchairs available on request.

The 16m swimming pool merges into the slopes that lead to a pine tree forest and snow capped Bowen’s Peak beyond. An outdoor fireplace and BBQ sit just by the pool.

The state of the art kitchen is fitted with everything you need.

A fully stocked library including DVDs and games by the fireplace above which sits a 60” flatscreen television screen and Sky Media. The whole property has WIFI.

A 4WD vehicle is required to access this property.

  • This is my second stay at the Kohanga and I can't imagine...

    This is my second stay at the Kohanga and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Queenstown. Our friends were blown away by the views and accommodation, it is a such a wonderful retreat.
