Apartment, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)
My grandfather, from Invercargill, purchased the land, and built the original holiday house on this site in the mid 1930's. It remained in the family until 2004 when the top half of the house was moved to Cromwell, a nearby town, where it is still in family ownership. The current block of apartments was built at that time and the family retained ownership of this one. It is still used mainly as a family holiday place, with the original owner's great, great grandchildren now enjoying holidays here. I too, grew up in Invercargill but now live in Christchurch, having lived overseas for a couple of periods. Wherever we have moved, Queenstown has always been the constant. My sister is still in Invercargill and we each have a child living in Queenstown. These two will be your contacts, during your stay.

Very nice property in all respects!! Beds we’re comfy and the view is amazing.
Great place to stay in Queenstown
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property - it was perfect for 2 families with 4 kids. With a bedroom and ensuite and WIR for each of the parents upstairs and an open plan kitchen, dining on the second level meant that the kids could enjoy the bottom level to themselves and better yet, could go to bed earlier without the parents disturbing them. Ensuites are large with plenty of room and the laundry helps with any washing needed for the stay. The view was stunning in this location, the photos simply don't do it justice! One of the best things was to come back after a day out (so many things to see, eat and do around Queenstown), open the living room concertino doors and admire the view and enjoy the fresh breeze. Sunsets are not to be missed especially in Queenstown in the summer which is around 9.30pm. Mind you, the view also means that from town, it is a steep walk up but the convenience factor of being 5-10 mins walk away is worth it. If you are planning to stay in Queenstown the first time, this place will spoil you...we've stayed in 5 places in the last 4 years and this property is great value for money for its location and perfect for a larger group.
Thanks for your lovely review Samantha. We're so glad your families enjoyed their stay and enjoyed our place as much as we do!
Staying at this property was one of the highlights of our trip to NZ. The apartment was very modern and clean and the view has to be one of the best in Queenstown. Spectacular!
Spectacular views, beautiful home, spotless and with every amenity possible. Great location to town, best holiday set up for two families of 4, can’t wait to come back next year!!
Perfect apartment for a group with incredible views
Arriving at this property at the start of our stay definitely exceeded our expectations. The location above the heart of Queenstown meant the views were spectacular, sitting on the deck with a morning coffee looking out over the town and lake to the snow capped mountains was a perfect way to start the day.
The property was super clean on our arrival, and had all the amenities needed for our 8 night stay. In fact we could more than happily have stayed the whole winter.
The setup with 2 masters upstairs (both with excellent beds, bedding and both with an ensuite, plus the awesome deck off the main master bedroom overlooking the lake), the middle level with kitchen, lounge, office (which we had set up as a bedroom) toilet/laundry and internal access garage plus another huge deck, and then the large basement room with ensuite suited our group of 10 perfectly. We enjoyed the ability for the younger generation to be able to play their tv and music downstairs while us adults could chill on the middle level.
We have travelled as a large group a lot, and this property was definitely a standout. We all loved the place, it was warm and cozy, yet large and expansive, and close to town, with superb views.
We highly recommend this property to anyone heading to Queenstown, its a luxurious large apartment in a prime location.
Thanks heaps for having us
There are too many possibilities to list. I suggest you choose your own particular interests and go on-line to find the ones you would enjoy most. Most things are available here, in season, from wine-tasting, bungee jumping and sky-diving with everything in between.
