Older style house. Lovely private room with tranquil views, shared kitchen. 4 bedroom house, 3 bath. House situated in quiet street very close to lake, walking tracks, shops, buses & water taxi. Very comfortable relaxed house with great facilities.
The space is perfect for singles or a couple. There is a mattress available to pull out for two people not wishing to share a bed. The house has a lovely garden and outdoor area for relaxing and reading. The proximity to shopping, the airport, walking tracks etc makes this an ideal place to be in a relaxed environment but still close to the action.
You will have access to a large lounge area for television or DVD watching or just a quiet read. Help yourself to the bookshelf. The kitchen is well equipped and you are free to use any condiments in the pantry. The house has a heat pump and a wood burner fire for winter warmth.
Interaction with Guests
As my work is very busy and can take me out of town at times I may not be available to meet and greet you. Mrs Meow our cat is always glad to see you in! Please message me the day before your arrival with an estimation of arrival time. I will give you instructions of house access. When I am home we often enjoy sharing a meal and chatting. I am always happy to give you local advise and recommendations. I will supply you with my cell number and always available to talk.
The neighbourhood is wonderfully located for walking, biking, and close to Remarkables Park Shopping centre. We live in quiet, private street with great people around us. If you are without transport I am happy to lend you a bicycle to ride to Queenstown or you a very close to a bus stop. We have lots of sun in Frankton and a short walk to the lake front. 15 mins walk to a great little lakeside cafe. 5 mins walk to The Hilton for a glass of wine. Options are many.
Buses are easy from here. Timetable on the fridge. Bus stop 2 mins away. Biking very easy, tracks are flat and a lovely 30 min ride to Queenstown central. Water Taxi from the Hilton to Queenstown central a great way to go to town. Parking on the street always available. You walk from the airport (15 mins), taxi or call me and I may be able to collect you if I am free.
Other Things to Note
The house is an older style house. In the winter it is necessary to have the heating on and the fire lit to keep the house cozy - which it is as long as all the doors and thermal curtains are shut. Heaters and electric blankets are provided for your room.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen for cooking. It is expected that guests wash and dry their dishes after each meal.
We had a wonderful time at Trudy's lovely home which is PERFECTLY situated if you have a car- it is nestled at the foot of the Remarkabkes mountain range and I went for walks along Lake Wakatipu every morning - in our last evening we walked to the Frankton Arm Tavern for a great meal and the most incredible view
We were only staying overnight in Trudy's house which is conventiently located in a quiet neighborhood away from the buzzling Queenstown city centre. Though the bedroom was spacious and the bed comfy, the house appeared a little bit chaotic to us. Moreover, our perception of cleanliness differs definitely from Trudy's. We did not see Trudy much due to our short stay, but she seemed nice.
Unfortunately i only stayed at Trudy's for one night. However it was enough for me to understand how interesting and welcoming person she is. As soon as i arrived she told me everything i needed to know and even provided me with material/ brochures about queenstown. Beautiful and clean house, very quiet neighbourhood, and only 10 minutes walk fron0m the airport.
The house was lovely! Really nice room, most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! Trudy, you were brilliant! So useful! Thank you so much for making our experience of Queenstown (all 2 nights!) lovely!
Trudy's home is a great spot for anyone wanting to spend time in this amazing part of New Zealand and would like things a little quieter than Queentown central. We spent a short time here so did not get to venture around the neighborhood, but the walk along the lake looked lovely. We were struggling with phone and emailing... Trudy was super patient, and went out of her way to make sure we arrived. Her home has a great vibe, wish we would have had more time to spend there. thank you Trudy!
Trudy is a great host. The room has a great view.We had a great stay with Trudy during our trip in Queenstown.Thank you.
Trudy made our stay to Queenstown, NZ, magic. She was very helpful and forthcoming. She also included us in her life as is almost impossible not do to when you live together but she did it in a nice way.

I am a business owner in Queenstown New Zealand - I work in the film industry as a stylist and love working in my shop in Frankton. We have a workroom and a retail front which services a large local customer base. Living & working in Frankton has the wonderful advantage of being in an incredibly beautiful place with so much on offer. I love to travel, to garden, to entertain and to relax with a good book!
