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, 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...

    Cottage is a traditional kiwi Bach and has a beautiful classic look inside. Really loved the wood fire and the hatch through to the kitchen. The house has everything you would need for a comfortable stay, great shower, comfy beds well supplied kitchen. It was a perfect spot for watching the planes leave the airport (they fly right overhead) but they were never a bother because of the airport curfew.

  • Great bach

    Great bach. Great location. Views of lake are beautiful and uninterrupted. Everything that you need, even for little ones. Welcoming day beds in idyllic locations around the house beckon for an afternoon nap. Planes overhead are no issue. Highly recommend.

    A really cute and quirky character house, nice and close to the lake. It was great being able to jump on the bikes from the garage and whizz into the downtown area, while staying out of the major hustle and bustle. 2 minutes walk to the bus stop if you're feeling less energetic, and you can walk from the airport - no need for a car. I had a wonderful, relaxing stay. The sunny conservatory is a bonus (direct sunshine can be rare in Queenstown, especially in winter)!

    The location is near the airport so the planes are near the house and it is noisy sometimes. The house is old and has a bad smell this time but the view is nice.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The conservatory roof was replaced just before the visit and there was an associated smell.
