Description

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, cot, 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.

The bach is warm with 2 nightstore heaters, radiant heaters in each room and an open fire.

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...

    Loved the retro vibe, roomy, very clean and tidy, nice and warm, comfy beds, good shower, had everything we needed for a comfortable famly holiday. Stunning view! Planes coming in were very exciting, and not a problem as they don't fly past 10pm. We recommend this place and would stay there again next time.

  • Excellent stay! Property was exactly as described and the view was amazing

    Excellent stay! Property was exactly as described and the view was amazing. Location is excellent for us as we went for a ski trip to the Remarkables. Less than 30min drive to the ski area and avoided the traffic back into Queenstown. House has so much charm, my daughter really enjoyed playing the old school piano. Plenty of heating to keep us warm. Watching the planes take off and land is quite fun. Shoppinhlg centre is also within 5 min reach. Would recommend to everyone!
