About Danny Carnegie
I'm proud Kiwi who loves snowboarding, fishing and travelling. For me, life is all about the mountains. There are never two days when they look the same. I love snowboarding in the winter and fishing in the summer.
Danny Carnegie purchased this House in 2013
Why Danny Carnegie chose Queenstown
There are plenty of properties in Queenstown which claim to be 'city centre', but the location of this property really is second to none! Access to Queenstown CBD with all it's bars, restaurants and cafes is a gentle 2 minute walk away. There is secure ski storage and mountain bike area where you can leave your gear overnight!
What makes this House unique
This property has just been completely renovated with new paint, carpets and blinds throughout. It has been designed to offer maximum flexibility for guests and as such it can offer seven separate beds. The main living area is open-plan with great flow from the kitchen/dining area/lounge and deck areas. There is an elevated deck which has stunning lake and mountain views and a table with dining for eight. There is a brand new six burner BBQ for you to use and a hammock for relaxing in the sunshine.

We are a couple in our fifties, stayed in the house with our three children, who are in their twenties. We stayed for 4 nights in the end of December.
The best part was the proximity to the center of town. It was VERY convenient and appreciated!
Also, the living area is nice and the space indeed seems to be recently renovated. It was also very clean.
However, there's a lot of inaccuracy in the posting! I travel a lot and am used to booking vacation rentals online. Still , we were shocked when we first got it.
This in NOT a 2 bathroom house! A little space with a toilet and a shower, with not even a sink, and where your knees touch the door when you sit on the toilet seat, cannot be advertised as a full bathroom!
It's really more of an emergency toilet (and you have to go upstairs to the kitchen to wash your hands, when the "real" bathroom is occupied). No one actually used it, and we ended up queuing for the "real" bathroom.
The bedrooms are also very small. When you think "a king bed" you imagine a spacious bedroom. But in this case it is basically the size of the bed. You can not bring your suitcase into the room with you. In fact, you can hardly close the bedroom door, and you have to squeeze by the wall to actually get INTO the bed. Of course there's no real closet space there.
The other bedrooms are also very small.
The parking space is small and hard to maneuver into. You might want to consider that, if you have a big car.
The owner's decision to give us only one bath towel each, and only one hand towel altogether, with no extras to be found anywhere, was also very strange and unusual. I was told that it was mentioned in the house description, but I can't actually find anything about that. I did get a word in the welcome email that was sent to me a few days before check in. I didn't even understand that there will be EXACTLY one towel per person, and not AT LEAST one towel per person :)
In any case, when I asked for more towels I was refused. There is a washing machine in the house, and of course I could wash the towels. However, what are you supposed to do if your towel gets accidentally dirty or wet just before you are about to take a shower? Wash it and dry it then? It really sounds ridiculous to me.
It's a nice little house in a great location, however a more accurate posting would only do it a favor. With a more accurate posting I wouldn't have taken this place to begin with, I specifically looked for 2 bathroom accommodations.
The house is in a great location close to town
The house is set up well
The view from the balcony is amazing
Maybe a little cosy for 8 people
Close to town
Overall a convenient property and very functional, was a little short on space for 6 adults, otherwise a good stay
So close to town. It worked really well for us we loved it. And the little extra touches we're very thoughtful
For our group this was the perfect place to wind down after a couple weeks on the move. So close to the City Center, as well as the Skyline attractions. The accommodations were nice, neat, and comfy! You just can't beat it.
Queenstown has over 500 different visitor attractions. From the relaxing to the adrenaline fuelled, there truly is something for everyone.
