This is all about the views! Every review we read, is 100% right on.
Queenstown is a beautiful city and our visit with Heather and Fraser was wonderful.
We had the entire upstairs to ourselves. Heather and Fraser also liked to visit with us which is what we wanted to do and they gave us fabulous tips on things to do. Great breakfast's. They would do as much or as little as you would like. We left feeling like family. A view to die for from every room in thier house. It's possible to walk to town from Kemnay, but there are a couple of fairly steep hills to climb on the way back. Downtown is always rocking with street performers, and people of all ages strolling the towns streets.
We strongly recommend a trip to Milford Sound. Spectacular scenery, especially if you have a rental car to get you there. You must do the shotover jet boat ride while there. There are nice walks along the harbor and through the botanical garden.
For a nice seafood meal, we recommend Fishbone. A little pricey, but worth it. Splurge a little then eat pizza the next 2 days.
