Marilyns on Mainstreet

Situated in one of the best locations in historic Arrowtown, Marilyn's is the place to stay when you are wanting the total experience. From the peaceful Arrow river walkways which start at your front door, to the bars, restaurants and shopping only metres away. The retro laid-back style decor of the house takes you back to the 1970's and makes you feel relaxed the moment you walk in the door. It features a film star gallery at the top of the stairs which will bring memories of yester-year. The upstairs outdoor deck is fabulous for relaxing in the swing chair or dining at the table while enjoying one of the local wines and taking in the wonderful scenery all around you. You are easy walking distance to the local bakery, hotels, award-winning restaurants, boutique cinema, museum, childrens playground and swimming pool. There is a child-proof, cottage garden and lawn area where you can barbeque. You are only minutes from the Arrow river where you can try your hand at goldpanning with the gold pan provided, or stroll through the old Chinese Village, a relic from Arrowtown's goldmining past. Staying at Marilyn's, you are fifteen minutes from Queenstown - the tourist hub of New Zealand - where there are so many things to do such as shopping, bars and restaurants, great nightlife, gondolier to Bob's Peak and luge, or take a jet boat ride on the Shotover River, skydive, bungy, or for something more relaxing a trip on the 'Lady of the Lake', the Earnslaw steamboat to Walter Peak Station. For the golfers, Marilyns is so handy to Millbrook, The Hills (which has hosted the NZ Golf championships the last three years), picturesque Kelvin Heights and Arrowtown courses and a short drive to Jacks Point which is rated one of the top five courses in NZ. From Arrowtown you can drive or catch one of the local buses which are available on a regular basis to Queenstown Internation Airport, Remarkables Park Shopping complex or one of the four famous ski fields.

  • An ideal place to enjoy Arrowtown from

    An ideal place to enjoy Arrowtown from. Couldn't ask for a better location. Really enjoyed the Marilyn Monroe theme, and the morning sun on the deck.
