This place had everything we needed and was nice and cosy. A beautiful location and beds were very comfortable
The driveway is unfortunately unusable for 2wd a vehicle . Made finding a park at the top of stairs and driveway hard
The driveway is atrocious, so steep we were lucky to have leased a 4 WD. Another vehicle (a sedan) had to park up on the road as when the driveway was icy the sedan would not make it. Elderly people would not manage this driveway. From the driveway there are approx 25 steep steps to the front door. Inside the place predominantly unclean and I had to sweep the floor, wipe the benches and sweep the porch for the amount of leaves left at the front door. The couches were covered with two blankets to cover the stains on the couch.
On arrival there was NO firewood and luckily Neville arrived and supplied us with scraps from a timber yard that were not suitable for a fireplace. We went over to Wanaka and collected two large bags of firewood to last us the 9 nights.
The beds and bedding were comfortable the bathrooms were clean and the linen was ample.
The TV was complicated and there were about 3 channels, no movie channels and feel that this could be improved. The heat pumps worked well in the mornings.
Overall good money paid for under average accommodation I'm sorry to say.
Nice views BUT extremely dangerous driveway
The property has amazing views and is well appointed. We were in Queenstown for a week as part of a family holiday and this was a great base for exploring. However there were a couple of disappointing aspects of our stay.
Firstly, we were not sent any information about accessing the property, making our arrival more problematic than necessary, and the owner did not return our call when we tried to make contact.
But the second and more major issue was the driveway into the property. This was so steep and in disrepair that our car (a 4wd) slipped a number of times in good weather, and actually slid sideways and got stuck when there had been minimal rain. Luckily there was no damage to us or the vehicle, but we had a small baby with us and this was quite terrifying. For this reason, we were relieved to be leaving on the final day.
Prior warning from the owners about this aspect of the property would have been appreciated.
Great house for families
Large house great for a family on a long stay in Queenstown. Great location on the lake, very picturesque.
Beautiful view and a great location.
Perfect location and perfect views.
Loved every second we spent here. Great location away from the noise yet close enough to be where you want in minutes. Yes; the property may feel a little 'tired' in places (I read the previous reviews and new exactly what to expect) but that didn't detract in the slightest. It's all about the views anyway; from the second you park your car and walk down the steps, the lounge room, the balcony, the bedrooms (2 have fantastic outlooks) AND even a toilet with amazing views !
Really enjoyed staying here and look forward to doing so again.
