  • Our family had a lovely stay at the Sunshine Retreat

    Our family had a lovely stay at the Sunshine Retreat. We loved the quiet location outside of Queenstown, as well as the privacy of the unit which was surrounded by trees. It was a short drive into town, which we did most days. The unit had a spectacular view, was large and bright. We loved the hot tub after a day of sightseeing or mountain biking. The stairs leading to the unit might be a consideration for those carrying heavy suitcases or who have mobility issues, but was fine for us.

    We loved the location and particularly enjoyed being able to sit in the spa and gaze out upon the view of Lake Wakatipu, Cecil & Walter Peaks. The house has plenty of supplies - towels, coffee, tea etc & we used the bbq several times. The only thing that wasn't obvious (and perhaps I should have realised from the photo) was that there are stairs down to the property. Just something to note if you are not particularly young or agile! All in all, it was a very positive experience.

    We stayed here recently for 3 nights and loved it! We are a group of 4 adults and 2 children and it suited all of our needs :) The property is very well presented, and we loved the spa. This place is in a perfect location as it is close to the centre, but still further enough to be nice and quiet. Would definitely recommend.

  • Awesome little property in Fernhill

    Awesome little property in Fernhill. The view past the conifers across the lake to Walter Peak is superb. We spent every night in the Spa watching the hills change colour in the ebbing sun. The house gets plenty of afternoon sun and was always toasty warm come evening. Over all, the house is fitted out to a high standard an we loved our stay. This would be top of our list should we return to Queenstown.
