  • This is a lovely house in a lovely setting!! If you want...

    This is a lovely house in a lovely setting!! If you want to be very near Queenstown with all it has to offer, but would like to have the chance to decompress at the end of the day, this is your place. You have something gorgeous to look at outside every window and door, and the house itself is beautiful! I would highly recommend!
