We spent 5 nights with the most wonderful hosts, Derek and Margaret, who couldn't do enough to help us. Derek organised all our trips using his knowledge of local tour companies and the weather and they were all great. The property itself is stunning with uninterrupted views over the lake. It is a pleasant 40 minute stroll to the centre of Queenstown, there is a frequent bus service right outside the driveway, a $16NZ taxi ride and Derek also dropped us in town too.
Having relied heavily on Trip Advisor to book our accommodation from the Uk, which comprised a mixture of hotels, B&B's and motels, we so nearly didn't book this property as it was ranked 27 of 43 B&Bs, having found it in a hand picked B&B guide. However, all 9 reviews were excellent although if the review posted in December 2011 had not been posted, we would have assumed Derek and Margaret were no longer doing B&B as the previous review was in May 2011. It turns out that unlike so many of the properties we stayed in where we were actively encouraged to post reviews, Derek and Margaret were refreshingly unaware of its importance. When that changes this property will find itself as the #1 in Queenstown. Could not recommend Twin Peaks highly enough-great hosts in a great property!
