About this listing

Peninsula Road cottage (crib) is the perfect relaxing holiday spot in summer and winter. From the moment you walk in, you will feel relaxed.

The space

A character crib modernised and contemporised, it has all the comforts and yet still retains the simplicity of a traditional holiday house that you remember from your own childhood holidays. Basking in all day sun with expansive water views, this crib is the perfect base for your holiday.
In summer you can practically spend all day on the sunny deck- morning coffee and papers, al fresco lunch and then to enjoy the long Central Otago evenings with drinks and BBQ dinner until it gets dark well after 10pm in summer.
In winter you can enjoy the sunshine streaming in the windows and the log burner whilst you take in the views of the calm lake and snowy mountain tops. It’s so warm and cosy in winter that a relaxing dinner at home and local pinot noir after skiing will be very appealing.
The crib was one of the earliest on Kelvin Heights and has been built in several stages and now recently refurbished. The two queen bedrooms are connected internally or can be accessed independently through French doors off the large deck; There is plenty of off-street parking. The garden is in constant bloom for most of the year so you can enjoy fresh flowers during your stay.

Guest access

Situated just at the beginning of the Kelvin Heights Peninsula, this home is perfectly positioned for water views, trails and very convenient to Queenstown central town. You can walk a few minutes down to the beach for a swim and sunbathe or ride/ walk the new network of trails to Queenstown and Arrowtown. Walk along the waterfront trail for less than 10 minutes to the Hilton Hotel for a range of restaurants, maybe a spa treatment or evening cocktails.
Take a water taxi across or drive 15 minutes to the buzz of Queenstown central or 20 minutes to the quaintness of historic Arrowtown. Convenient to the Airport and Remarkables Park shopping centre (3km). The cottage is minutes from both Queenstown and Jack Point golf course, close to Coronet Peak and even closer to Remarkables ski area. Queenstown area has an abundance of things to do and this crib provides a convenient and relaxing weekend or holiday base.

Fiona was very helpful and kind. The location is awesome - really beautiful, quiet and relaxing... but also easy to get to the centre of town for some food and drinks. And being right next to the remarkables is a big plus for those skiers/snowboarders out there.

Fiona was an excellent host and her property was every bit as stunning and cosy as it looks. The views were magical and the location was excellent; conveniently located whilst extremely quiet and serene. We fell in love with Queenstown and with this beautiful property. Thank you Fiona for a wonderful stay!

Amazing stay! Obviously, the house has a spectacular view of the lake and city, but we were also bowled over by the thoughtful little details in this very special little place. House is flawlessly clean and well stocked for a comfortable stay. We also enjoyed our walks in the gardens each morning; it's like we have walked into a enchanted garden with flowers out in full blooms, and even an apple tree! Wish it was warmer so we can spend more time out on the deck. Helen is very helpful and we highly recommend this experience!

Fiona's cottage is better than what it looks like in photos. Tranquil, fresh and cozy. My wife and I are in love with this cottage. It has a beautiful outdoor patio (probably an outdoor umbrella would be a good addition so that one can sit outdoor for longer hours). The garden is full of fresh fruits and flowers. Rooms are comfortable. Bathroom is appropriate. Kitchen is self sufficient. And host Fiona is ever so helpful. Highly recommended for a couple or a family with young kids.

What an amazing cottage! My wife and I spent a week at Fiona's home and had a great time! Our total trip from the states was 2 weeks and spending our last week here was perfect. The house is on the peninsula across from Queenstown which was great because it's nice and peaceful after long days out exploring but close enough to drive in 15 minutes or take the water taxi. The sun deck is amazing and there is also a shady area for when the sun is too much. The view is spectacular just like the pictures and the full kitchen and laundry are well equipped. Fiona was an excellent host who gave us ideas of things to see as well as places to see in other parts of New Zealand before we arrived at her cottage. We would definitely stay here again!
