Description

  • Stunning views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables
  • Family accommodation close to all major amenities and public transport
  • Classic New Zealand bach filled with 'Kiwiana'

Our family bach commands stunning views of the Frankton Arm of Lake Wakatipu and Queenstowns 'Remarkables'. It's a true bach, rich in history and full of memorabilia. Most of the furnishings are from a previous generation although the beds and appliances are near new for a relaxed stay. The bach is in 'Old Frankton', a five minute drive (or a five minute walk from public transport) to the heart of Queenstown. Close to all Queenstowns attractions but away from the crowds. It's a 10 minute walk from the airport so you can fly in and not need a rental car. YES the planes do fly over head and watching them is really cool, especially for kids. It's only a 15 minute walk to a supermarket and major shopping center. The bach and section are child friendly (not fully child-proof) with childproof locks on cupboards containing cleaners, a fireguard, a high chair, lots of kids DVDs and a toy box. There are lots of books, with a focus on the stories and history of Central Otago. A large park, indoor swimming pool with hydroslides, lakeside walking trails, golf course, the Queenstown event center and the lake itself (full of trout and salmon) are all within 10 minutes walk.

Queenstown is the perfect place for either a restful break or full-on adventure holiday. Leisurely walks, vineyard lunches, jet boating, bungy jumping, gold panning, horse trecking, four major ski fields and two internationally acclaimed golf course all nearby and last but not least its Lord of the Rings country with tours to suit everyone. We can supply you with a list of family friendly things you can do for free and our favouite cafes and restaurants.

The Castle is the perfect base for your lakes holiday. Close to Arrowtown and an easy drive to Clyde, Roxborough, Wanaka and Hawea. It's even used as a base for the Otago rail trail.

Obviously we love the place but so do our visitors, just check out the guest book...

    Really good house with a nice view and a house that's full of life (not a holiday house purpose build). If there was the wifi, it would be perfect.

    It has a very homely relaxing feel, views were fantastic and it was very clean. Found the bed nice and comfy and they had plenty of extra blankets. Great that they had lots of things in do in the house also, would be a fantastic place to stay if you have children. I will definitely stay again.

  • Awesome and convenient location

    Awesome and convenient location. Kids loved the toys in the Bach and plane spotting as the jets flew over. Very comfortable and it had everything you need. Thank you

    We love the movie 'The Castle' - and this Bach certainly had that feel! The older style furniture and open fire were homely, and we loved the planes flying overhead! The cherry on the top was waking up to October snow, and the view was priceless! Built a snowman in the back garden and would definitely visit again. Thanks!
