Our house is a comfortable home perfect for travellers who want to spend their time staying in a home, rather than a hotel. This is our home or normal residence and we vacate the property. There is a lock box on site to enable you access as soon as you arrive.

We are Kandace (Mum/host) and Craig (Dad) and my 6 year old son Hemi, 4 year old daughter Hariata, 2 cats Puku Nui and Blizzard, 1 crazy dog Speckle and 2 tropical fish.

Our cats Blizzard and Puku Nui stay at home and we ask that you kindly feed them and let them live happily in their own home. We provide the food and full instructions If you're a cat person you know cat's do their own thing. Puku Nui is a senior cat and going to a cattery is too much for her, i'm sure she will repay your kindness with lots of cuddles.

Open plan lounge dining and kitchen with nice outdoor area. The house is fully insulated so warm and cosy in the winter with central underfloor heating. The kitchen is well equiped especially with appliances. Craig was a chef for over 20 years so you could even bake a cake or a roast while on holiday.

Lake Hayes Estate and Shotover Country is a very attractive, quiet, peaceful area. There are footpaths throughout, with walkways and cycle tracks all the way into Queenstown CBD and also to Arrowtown. There is a very nice Restaurant Cafe Bar & mini convenience store. There is also a kids playground with a flying fox, skate/bike park, outdoor tennis court and large playing field within easy walking distance in near-by Lake Hayes Estate. The local primary school about a 200m walk also has a good playground. Five mile Shopping Centre is also conveniently located by a short 5 minute drive for all your shopping needs.

Special conditions: This is our family home and is not a holiday home. Please treat it as such and take care. Smoking allowed outside only. Pets by negotiation. No parties or loud music after 11pm. Please feed the cats. I will leave the food and full instructions. They have a cat door and can come and go as they please.
