This was our splurge on our South Island holiday. From the moment we pulled up in the car park and were greeted by name it set the scene for our stay. You really did feel like you were part of an extended family without the additional intrusion that can sometimes come with! The villa had the most magnificent views of Lake Wakatipu and those heart achingly beautiful mountains which surround it, including the Remarkables. You wake up, open the blinds and are slapped with that view which goes on forever. Nothing in front of you to spoil it either - no roads, no rooftops... just view. The room was everything you would expect for the price - extremely comfortable and luxurious. The bathroom is definitely a highlight - I found any excuse to have a bath!! Our host Gavin recommended a number of tours and drives around the area and was only too happy to book these for us. The Dart River Jet Boat Safari was a highlight as was the drive to Glenorchy. Plenty of eating options in Queenstown and his recommendations were again spot on here. The hotel is a fair distance from town but any of the hotel staff will be very quick to offer you a lift to wherever you would like to go. When you want to go back to the hotel all it takes is a phone call and they will be there to pick you up within 10 minutes, so this made up for the hotel being located outside of town. The canapés offered in the afternoon/evening as well as the afternoon tea treats were always very delicious. The made to order breakfast which you can opt to have delivered to your villa was always absolutely lovely and a very relaxing way to start the day. This really was a very luxurious yet warm and friendly stay. Thank you so much.
