On The Terrace is a standalone house, sleeping up to seven guests within four upstairs bedrooms, two bathrooms and two lounges and a large fully equipped kitchen. Nestled higher up in the garden is also a separate standalone ‘bunkhouse’ – with six Single bunk beds and a Queen bed. So, altogether, On The Terrace can sleep up to fifteen.

Set in terraced gardens overlooking peaceful Reserve land, directly across the road from Lake Wakatipu - a ten minute stroll through the nearby Queenstown Botanical gardens will bring you to the restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife of downtown.

If mountain-biking is your plan, this is the perfect base in Queenstown - ride on out the gate to the Frankton Track which leads to endless tracks in the area. There is plenty of storage space for bikes in the garage.

At the back of the garage is the Drying Room for ski and boarding gear.

The house itself has two living/dining areas (both with wood burners) and modern contemporary decor provides several alternatives: breakfast or bar area, comfortable (and cosy in winter) lounges, dining overlooking the deck/lake/views, or alfresco living in summer on either deck or barbecue patio.

Within in the garden there is more than one place to sit and relax with front and back terraces, you can enjoy the sun or find some cool shade.

Each of the four bedrooms is well appointed, and the bunkroom has ample storage and its living area can double as an office if work calls.

Special conditions: Inclusions are lockbox entry, cleaning upon departure (and mid-stay for stays of 9 days or more) and linen hire. Security bond (refundable). Portacot & highchair available on request. Smoking outside only.
