Spectacular Holiday Home in Queenstown New Zealand

Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


Minimum Stay
3 nights

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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.

About Adelle

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.

Adelle purchased this house in 2000

Why Adelle chose Southern Lakes

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Liz and Adelle,

I wanted to thank you for an absolutely wonderful stay in your beautiful house. It was so comfortable and lovely, we had such a special family vacation in it. And those views! It was hard leaving today. :) Everything was perfect.

Thank you again,

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days in Queenstown and setup shop here with 4 adults and 2 kids. House was Ina. Top location with spectacular views and we were made to feel very welcome on arrival. Proximity to both the city and the ski fields was perfect and it was a great place to relax in after a day out and about. Would happily stay again.

Truly is home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! My family of 9 ( 6 adults and 3 children under 7) have just experienced a wonderful week in Queenstown . As some of the family had never seen snow it was a great experience and I feel made even better by having this beautiful family home to return to after our full days of exploring what Queenstown and surrounds had to offer. The views alone were breathtaking . We certainly hope to return one day . Thank you to Julia for being so helpful on our arrival. Thank you to Adelle for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home .

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in your spectacular home for a week after having cruised around New Zealand and a bit of Australia. We found the environment stunningly beautiful. The home was very comfortable and took advantage of the vistas with large windows overlooking the lake and mountains surrounding the area. We really enjoyed looking at and reading about the art work in the home. The space was more than sufficient for solitary as well as joint activities. The rental car was quite useful to get into the downtown and for drives to neighboring communities. We took our meals in the home. Shopping in the town and shopping center was good. The property manager was quite helpful in assisting us in getting around and helping us learn about the community and surrounding area. We have shared photos we took with all our friends and would like to return in the near future.

Fabulous view & home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Adelle, on behalf of 4 fussy people by sharing your lovely home. The view was the best we have ever had in all the years we've been traveling. After 2 long hikes it was a lovely way to spend the last week in Queenstown. We enjoyed cooking in each night with a grill provided & a kitchen stocked with all the essentials! All I can say was that it was a perfect find & would highly recommend it to everyone! Thank you again.

What a beautiful home! Thank you Adelle for offering such a wonderful home with gorgeous views of the Remarkables. This was our first stop after flying all night from the U.S. Could not have asked for a sweeter home to park ourselves in. Two retired couples, the kitchen was well stocked and pleasant, the views from both the living room and the dining area were wonderful. More than enough space to either hide in and read, or to socialize. So glad we picked your home rather than a hotel. Hope we can soon return, we loved it!

New Zealands best

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (2 couples) stayed 4 nights in Queenstown and could not have found better accommodation. We have travelled a lot of different countries and this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Everything was top quality but very homely and welcoming. The views are stunning, everything and much more than l was expecting. Down town was very busy and coming back to your home was like on oasis. We are hoping to come back again and would not want to stay anywhere else as l know nothing else would compare to this property. Thankyou.
