“Outstanding experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This was absolutely fab!!! Villa itself is just a dream, with giving the right amount of privacy and cozyness and modern features. I don't think you can have a better view anywhere in Queenstown and it is just a privilege to wake up with such a view. I would also love to say huge thank you to the stuff girls- you are amazing. I am hoping to be the guest of Commonage Villas one day again!!!

Five star accommodation with 7 star views of Queenstown. Very close proximity to central Queenstown for shops and restaurants with an invigorating walk back up the hill at the end of the night's entertainment. Fantastic location to attack the ski slopes from, with well appointed furnishings and floor heating. Highly recommended .

We have stayed at The Commonage twice as a family group. Both vacations were 5 star in every sense, this was mostly due to the wonderful experience of staying at The Commonage. Close proximity to all our activities, restaurants and shops. Luxurious presentation and a view that would equal any Canadian calendar. We are an active family of varying ages with gourmet tastebuds, so Queenstown ticks all our boxes. The Commonage is large enough for us all to spread out, ski gear and all. Home cooking on those big days out is easy with lots of room both in the living area and dining room and dining out equally as easy as it is close proximity to all the restaurants and supermarkets. What can I say.....A wonderful experience...Thank you The Commonage

The Commonage Villas far exceeded our expectations. The views are incredible and the accommodation is amazing. We especially enjoyed the fire places in the lounge room and bedroom and the underfloor heating throughout. Miira could not have been any more accommodating from our first email to our last day in the villa. Perfect for couples or families and I look forward to returning one day.

This is the 5 star experience ! Luxury warm and a touch of class
The only problem is it is ten mins walk out of town up a huge hill. A taxi from town to the apt is $11nz. Also it is too far from town to be on the shuttle route to the ski lifts and too far to walk with ski equipment. HIRE a CAR it's the only way to get around if staying here and skiing unless you are a mountain goat. Car hire is $75nz a day.

Dear Tony,
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate it! Yes, we are on Queenstown Hill which is no problem, like you stated, if you have a car. (We don't allow mountain goats to stay in the villas as a rule!) We have taken on board your advice and now offer a daily villa to town return taxi chit. I guess the hill is the price you pay for our incredible views. We look forward to having you stay next time and thanks again. Best wishes, the team at Commonage Villas.

We stayed for a week with 2 other couples in Auguat 2009. It proved to be great value for us as between 6 of us and with the AUD to NZD exchange rate. We were all really imporessed with the accomdation. The villa we were in seemed brand new, the furnishing were so beautiful and no detail was mssed. The views were sensatiotional from every room. We had a hire car so being on the hill was no big deal. The gas fire and under floor heating meant we were all cosy. The lady who took our reservation and checked us in was super nice and friendly and reccomended all the retaurants to go to and not go to. We had such an awsome time and the skking was excellent. All the retsirants we went to were really top notch also, not waht yo;d expect from such a small town. We are looking forward to seeing Queenstown in Summer now as we've been told it is great. I would definitely reccomend the vilas to groups of friends, couples or families.

Our company is one of the sponsors of the Queenstown Winter Festival and I was lucky enough to be part of the team on the ground during the festival staying at Commonage Villas.

It was a fantastic location (overlooking the town and lake) for us to be based from during the week. It is an easy 5 minute walk to get into the township although a bit if hike back up (the hills around there are steep)!

The rooms and amenities were fantastic. We converted the large dining area into our work space and each had our own massive bedroom / en-suite. Wireless broadband internet meant it was work as usual.

The kitchen is well set up with everything you could ever want, admittedly we ate most of our evening meals out so didn't get to make full use of it.

I took my partner and was lucky enough to have the master bedroom on the top floor. She spent a lot of time enjoying the huge bath! The views were fantastic and would have to be the best place for watching the festival fireworks.

It did seem a little strange parking our SUV in a carpeted heated garage after a day up the ski field.

I hope we are staying there again this year!
