Historic Stone House is definitely top notch stay in Queenstown. Location is very convenient. Host Alex is extremely helpful and friendly. The accommodation itself is comfy with nostalgia touch. Hot tub in the backyard is a big bonus. I would recommend it for group of 6-8 since there're 3 big bedrooms of which 2 are ensuites.
The Historic Stone House is a lovely place to stay. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. It is centrally located. it has some extras like the spa and off street parking. We missed not having access to Sky as there was an All Black game we wanted to see. The hosts were super friendly and provided a high level of service, sometimes a bit too much service! We will definitely be back.
My friends and I were blown away by both Alex's hospitality/professionalism and the quality of the residence and would definitely stay again. Heritage listed accommodation in beautiful Queenstown, a daily service of the entire house (they even cleaned out and re-prepared the fire!), walking distance to the action, and plenty of parking space; what more could you ask for? Outstanding.

About the Host, Alex
Chalet Queenstown was in a state of disrepair when Alex and John took it over in December 2007. At that time a quick paint job was all that could be done in order to operate during the 07/08 Summer season. A ‘refurbishment’ began in September 2008 but, due to building regulations and other requirements associated with new buildings, the Chalet has practically been rebuilt. .
The Chalet’s interior bears little resemblance to the property Alex and John took over – a new internal staircase, disabled room and facilities, new decking/patio area, balconies attached to each room, one extra guest room, a new dining room and guest lounge and entirely new furnishings, fixtures and fittings.
It’s a testament to John and Alex’s belief in the future of Queenstown’s tourism industry and they have breathed new life into one of the town’s most iconic properties. They also own the Historic Stone House on Hallenstein Street, built in 1874 for the Mayor of Queenstown and is a unique property listed with the New Zealand Heritage Trust.
