We loved staying at this charming little place and highly recommend it. Lovely hosts, unbelievable scenery and very cosy. It strikes the rare balance of letting you feel close to the countryside and alive in doing so but protected and warm.  The garden is quite stunning, teeming with life, and the sculptures made by the hosts demonstrate their respect for nature and...

If you want to experience mother nature and truly handcrafted, simply eye-catching furniture and interior (made by the owner Thomas) you need to go there! I have never seen anything like this before! This is for sure "Little Paradise" of NZ! Forget about staying in Q-Town or Glenorchy! Go to this lovely spot, the colourful amazing garden. Christa and Thomas... More

First of all, we didn't have the luck to lodge here although we wanted to. How my husband and I found it is a totally surprise. We lodged in downtown Queenstown. On the way to Glenorchy for the Lord of the Rings film trilogy sites, we were not sure weather we had missed the sites already. By the way, the... More

Thomas S, Owner at Little Paradise Lodge, responded to this review

We remember very well, when this Russian group arrived at our place. It was raining heavily. Normally when our guests arrive we introduce our self, show them their rooms and facilities and then share a cup of tea while getting to know each other and make them feel welcome. Then we offer them to carry their luggage to the room.... More

We did search for a nice place near Queenstown and weren't too sure first if Little Paradise wasn't too far out. As it turned out it was the best we could do - stay away from the commerce driven QT city and choose a relaxing and beautiful place right near the lake instead. Welcome to little paradise!

Found this little gem 30km outside of the hype and noise of Queenstown and stayed two nights. Little Paradise is completely original, due to owner Thomas who built the house from scratch, with incredible carvings and mosaics covering the walls. Every inch of this place is beautiful, from the splendid rose garden and ponds to the unique and whimsical construction... More

This one of the most unique places we have ever stayed. We loved it. The gardens were spectacular, and the morning view from my bed looking over the gardens to the lake was amazing. Our hosts were very friendly.

This is a wonderful and very unusual place for a little retreat, the type of place that you would think does not exist, except in your imagination. But Thomas, the Swiss owner and artist, built it. The garden is huge, contains many many species of flowers, frogs, ducks, trouts, ponds, eccletic statues and things to discover. Even if you do... More

We found this place totally randomly and were very pleasantly surprised. As soon as you enter the garden you feel real peace around you, while making you want to explore the whole place immediately. The house is just as good, with everything made out of natural products by the owner. You can spend hours just wandering around the house and... More
