Queenstown house description

Our Home is suited to discerning guests, couples or families. It has been set up for our family and friends so is NOT the usual rental place. Even though it is a 3 bedroom home, the main living level has main bedroom so the downstairs area (with 2 bedrooms and study) can easily be separated off if not required so it is still very good for just 1 couple.

There is no other place like Queenstown. Uniquely spectacular, and combining all sorts of adventure and relaxation activity, beautiful scenery, and the wonder of the outdoors, with world class shopping, entertainment, restaurants and bars.

Four distinct seasons and four different appeals to the senses. Our Home has panoramic views over Lake Wakatipu and the mountains. It is a few minutes into the heart of Queenstown, and an ideal stepping off place for local sightseeing.

International visitors 'downunder' should do OZ and NZ in the one trip and marvel at the contrasts. Locals will know that Queenstown is the adventure capital of the Asia Pacific region, and is like the Swiss Alps just a few hours from home.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: I am semi retired and move between Queenstown and Sydney, where my family live. I love scenery and gardens and find Queenstown an ideal place to enjoy with family and friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Queenstown:
                  We fell in love with Queenstown after staying just one night in 1968. We love the location and after all this time, it is still beautiful. We have been able to share this with our family and friends and now open it to select guests.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our Home is on the Queenstown Hill above the town where you can relax inside or outside on one of the numerous decks and enjoy the scenery. We have modified our Home to make it comfortable and cosy and it is a pleasure to be in, regardless of the season.
