Sunny cottage with water views

House - Entire home/apt · Peninsula Road, Queenstown, Otago 9300, New Zealand

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.

  • What a view! This house was all we wanted and more. Fiona was incredibly helpful from booking up until the day we left. The house is perfect, very clean and tidy with everything you could possibly need. The walking trail is just 5 mins away which is great. It is about a 5-10 min drive into the city centre which was perfect for us. The view from the deck is amazing, you can easily spend the day out there enjoying the view & reading a book - which Fiona has plenty of! We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to visit Queenstown. Thanks Fiona!

  • We had a lovely time at the sunny cottage! It was clean and close to beautiful walking trails The water taxi at the Hilton is only a 15 min walk and it is the best way of getting into town.The kitchen was well stocked with all you need if you are cooking meals and the garden is wonderful! Fiona was a fabulous host and was very helpful in getting us settled in Queenstown. We absolutely recommend staying here if you would like an authentic local experience that is not in the busy hub of town. Enjoy it!

  • My stay at this sunny cottage was nothing short of truly wonderful.
    Beginning with the incredible, breathtaking views that surround this 'little piece of heaven'. A garden filled with flowers, fruit, herbs and salad vegetables. A cottage that is well-stocked with everything that you need, comfortable beds and a decking that enables you to lazily enjoy the lake and the mountains.

    I organised to have someone meet me and do some shopping so that I could simply relax for a few days.

    Walking around the lake is very pretty indeed and I found the locals to be friendly and helpful.

    You need to see this place to believe how wonderful it is.
    I will be back again...

    is really awesome. It's good choice if you want a house with a wonderful view.

  • We had a absolute great time in this old cottage. Fiona was able to bring it back in the modern time and it looks absolute fantastic with very tasteful colors and exactly the right amount of interior.
    It was very hard for us to leave the great view from the terrace over the sea day by day.
    Perhaps this is the only bad thing to say about this place as it would be shame not do explore the interesting and adventures surrounding. The adrenalin capital of the world.
    Many thanks for a nice time. Would be nice if we could come back one day.

  • This stylish cottage with a mid-century flavour has everything you need for a wonderful holiday - including salad greens and rhubarb growing in the lush and beautiful garden. Perfect place to enjoy Queenstown if you have a car, 15 mins away from the tourist bustle across the lake with stunning views from the generous deck and just about every window. Well stocked kitchen for home cooking and numerous home style magazines to read on comfy sofas when needing time to relax. The path around the lake is a great evening walk.
