Enjoy the comforts and privacy of a hotel with real hospitality, for a fantastic price.
Central Queenstown location
Local hospitality, friendly advice
Warm and cosy
The view from the house and bedroom is awe inspiring. The house is modern and warm, the beds are comfortable and we've made sure to use good linen and pillows because we know that a good night's sleep makes a difference.
Guests have access to their room which includes an ensuite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and TV with DVD selection. In addition to this they have access to a communal lounge and balcony space, plus breakfast (included in price) is served in the dining room each morning. Guests are free to come and go from the house as they please and will have access via a key.
We love meeting people and finding out about them, plus we can offer a wealth of local knowledge and advice about where to go, what to do/see and where to eat. We'd be happy to spend time with you, but at the same time respect your privacy and space (the room is quite separate from the living area) - so how much interaction we have is up to guests.
After travelling around the world ourselves, the first thing we notice every time we come home is how quiet it is! It is a truly peaceful and restful place with no traffic and only trees and reserve behind the house. The reserve behind the house also offers a beautiful walk that connects up with the Queenstown Hill Time Walk, which is a loop track through forest that offers an incredible view from the top. The other fantastic thing about this location is that it is very close to Queenstown centre which is a great advantage given that a lot of Queenstown homes are spread out in surrounding areas that don't have the same proximity to town.
From the house it will take about 20 minutes walking downhill to get to town. The uphill walk can take a bit longer, depending on how fit you are! In a car it is a short drive and taxis to and from the house are around $10. There is no public transport from our neighbourhood.
Our own experiences travelling taught us that it is often the people and the local hospitality that make a place a rich and memorable experience. We aim to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible by offering the same great hospitality that we've encountered as travellers.
I felt so welcome and comfortable They are the best hosts. The house is lovely and views to die for. Hayley was very helpful and welcoming as soon as she opened the door. I would love to go back and stay next time I was in Queenstown. I would chose there place over a motel or hotel any day.
Thank you so much again!!! xxxxx
Wonderful Hosts and Beautiful Location.
Great walk up from the town with stunning views.
Thank you for making my stay so enjoyable and relaxed.
Would highly recommend to anyone! I will be back next time I am in Queenstown!
Hayley is a wonderful host,with a superb house. The view is fantastic and the accommodation offered of the highest standard.
You won't do better than this!
One of the best views in the whole of New Zealand, in a beautiful house high above Queenstown. Hayley and Josh are great hosts and open their home to you. Immaculate and no faults at all. You may want to get a taxi back from town though!!!
After just hopping of of the Routeburn Track smelling like a used gym sock, being happily greeted despite the very late hour, and all nestled in to a LUXURIOUSLY comfortable bed in this GORGEOUS house, I dare you not to find waking up to the view one receives from that bedroom window and not say to yourself "I'm going to ask to move in."
Haley and Josh are just the tops. They have the raddest modern accommodation and the funnest easy-going nature to them. I felt like we'd been acquainted for years after only moments. They go an extra mile for you, really. They lent us their bikes to save us money on rentals, gave us a very late/last minute lift to the bus station! And even drove all the way downtown, found us somehow, and hand delivered a message left but new friends we'd made just to keep everyone in communication. THAT is the kind of awesome these two are and they made our Queenstown experience change from "I'd visit here again!" to "I wanna live here and move down the street from them and be buds." :)
Our stay with Hayley and Josh was absolutely wonderful! They are great hosts and good fun to just chill out with and have a chat! They were very welcoming and so helpful to the extent of giving us a number of lifts into town and even to the airport on our return!
Now their house is lovely with beautiful views from every window of the entire house! It is neat and tidy!
We enjoyed every minute of our stay in Queenstown and would definitely recommend staying with Hayley and Josh!
Thanks again guys!
We had a very good time in Queenstown and especially with Hayley and Josh. They are wonderful hosts and have excellent ideas for activities around Queenstown. The apartment has awesome views so even in bad weather we felt very comfortable, also since we could use the living room as well. If we come back we will surely stay here again.
We have been very lucky to find this place. Hayley and Josh are a very nice couple, really helpful, interesting and we had good time together. The house is beautiful, clean and tidy. The room is perfect with your own bathroom and an awesome view above the lake and the mountains. The breakfast is also very good. It's really close to town too. We really recommend this place to everyone who wants to stay in Queenstown. Thanks again :)

This place is all about VIEWS, VIEWS and VIEWS! We stayed there 4 nights and did not have any regrets at all. Both Josh and Hayley are warm and friendly. Room as well as the rest of the house was very clean. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and would definitely recommend this place if you come to Queenstown!
We stayed with Hayley and Josh for a total of 4 nights and it was our favorite place to stay on our 10 day journey in Queenstown. The room itself was amazing; million dollar view of Lake Wakatipu, comfortable bed and sheets, very clean and cozy and lots of light in the room but curtains provide complete dark at night. More than the room itself Hayley and Josh were incredible hosts, we truly felt at home and they have the gift of hospitality. They were so fun and inspiring to talk to. An assortment of breakfast items was laid out each morning and Hayley even accommodated my gluten free dietary need, so thoughtful. The house is a short 5 minute drive to the center of Queenstown and definitely walkable if are up for a short uphill hike after dinner. It was a perfect base station for all the hiking trails we wanted to explore. Needless to say we were so sad to leave and can't wait to visit again!
