From the first welcome to the last breakfast, this really is fantastic. Overall, simply wonderful. Book quickly before word gets round: it's fairly new, and still getting known about. Not expensive at all for what it provides.
On to detail.
Location: easy to find, away from the sometimes noisy hubbub of Queenstown central. A couple of minutes by car, 20 minutes walking, $11 or so by taxi. Parking on site. And the view! Directly opposite the Incredibles, with an uninterrupted view to the lake and up to the sharp ridges...idyllic.
Welcome and first impressions: Rose is the most magical host, and welcomes you right from the start. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for her. And the house is so beautiful: wood and marble floors, huge windows, multiple terraces...I have never stayed in such a good looking home.
Room: We stayed in the Master Bedroom, with huge windows and its own terrace. Everything you want: well equipped bathroom with good shower, hairdryer, ironing board, iron, fridge, television, walk-in cupboard/dressing room, individual lights each side of the bed. A bowl of fresh fruit including local peaches and cherries. Tea and coffee making facilities. And again, the view!
Breakfast: yoghurts, cereals, full cooked breakfast, juices, toast, croissants, cold ham and cheese..anything you want. Tea and coffee freshly made (teapots and cafetiere). Choice of preserves. Fresh fruit salad and fresh fruit. And if you can believe it, Rose even asked me if I wanted my egg fried in the same fat as the bacon or fresh oil (obviously, I plumped for the bacon fat)! We stayed four nights, and she served us breakfast at any time that suited us.
Relaxing: lovely sitting room looking out over that view, and comfortable chairs on the main terrace. Rose constantly plied us with cups of tea, biscuits, snacks, beer, offers of wine... We never felt we were intruding.
Other stuff: we asked about where to find a laundry in town and she insisted we use her machine, even helping us hang out the washing. Internet is free (though she'd rather you didn't stream video!) and works. Mobile phone reception is excellent. Charming and friendly small dogs.(and we're not normally doggy people).
