We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with a week in Queenstown - I just love the town and staying here was a bonus. We had the 1 bedroom upstairs apartment at the back of the property so the views were a LITTLE restricted but not a problem really. We love to be able to prepare our own breakfast and dinner... More

We stayed for 7 nights with our 8 year old son. It was perfect for us. The kitchen is small but has everything you need - we cooked dinner 3 nights and had breakfast at home every morning. There are full laundry facilities just behind the cottage. The cottage is warm and cosy for those freezing queenstown winter nights.it is... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find my fairly inexpensive accommodations to be so pleasant and spacious. Alex welcomed me and did everything to make my stay more comfortable. He moved my luggage twice, once while I hiked the Milford Track and again to my next lodging after the hike. He even transported food from the refrigerator twice. The bed was... More

This was a spacious stone cottage, used to be the mayor's house apparently. It had everything required and was very charming and homely. The only thing it didn't have, and the reason why I did not give it 5 stars, was that there was no washing machine! This would have been very handy. Everything else was great. The showers were...

We stayed three blissful nights in this lovely cottage. I must say it was one of our accommodation highlights of our trip to New Zealand. The cottage has such a quiet and relaxed ambience that we stayed in sipping our wine and enjoying our home for a night instead of heading to Queenstown for dinner. The property is within walking...

We stayed in the main 3 bedroom house for 2 nights and it was wonderful. Everything we could ask for, the hot tub was great. The house is easy walking distance to the town. The rooms and beds are comfortable. The open fire is lovely and we made use of it last night. Alex the host was brilliant, a place... More

We are currently staying at this wonderful place. In Queenstown you are spoilt for choice with the range of accommodation but this place is a perfect find for those people who prefer the self contained option. This is our first stay but will definitely be back. We loved the central location and the spacious nature of Daniel's Apartment made this... More

This is a great place with loads of character. We spent Christmas in the main house and it felt very homely. It's close to town, although note the walk back is steep! The owner is really helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.

I spent four nights in the Weir apartment and could not have been happier. It has great views, is spacious and clean with all the amenities. It is a great base for exploring Queenstown and environs. I enjoyed walking down the hill and back up to get to Queenstown but if that's an issue for anyone, I found Beetham to... More

It's on the quiet side of Queenstown but it's just 10 min walk from the city center. The owner is superb nice and had been very helpful in recommending local restaurants and activities. At night, when you look up from the house, you can even see the Milky Way! Best for family and couple exploring Queenstown!
