About This Listing
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.
The place has a very good sense of energy and vibes. I loved a lot of Trudy's decor and how she presents her place. Very chill relaxed space. Trudy is very nice and left me to my privacy she seems like a busy worker and balancing a healthy lifestyle probably taking any moment she can to meditate or do yoga. It was cool to see we shared similar books on our bookshelf and my favourite part -besides sitting in front of the fire while reading - would be taking her bike out and riding the trail along the lakeshore to queenstown. It's a great place and would love to see what it's like in the summer. Her backyard looks like a great hangout space.
My partner and i felt very much at home in Trudy's house. The room was so lovely and cozy and was better then it looks in the pictures. The bed was extremely comfortable and the sheets were particularly nice. It was really easy for us to get into the city from Trudy's home, even though we didn't have a car as the bus system is really good. the bus stop is about a 2 minuet walk away and comes frequently taking you right into town. Trudy's home is also within walking distance from the remarkables shopping centre and the airport which was really convenient for us. Overall, this is a great location and there are beautiful walks to be done just minuets away from the home along the lake. The veiw of the mountains is amazing and waking up and looking outside the bedroom window to see the beautiful mountains is an experience that we wont forget. Trudy is a very generous host, allowing us to use the kitchen and even offering us bikes to use. I would definitely recommend Trudy's home.
I really enjoyed staying at Trudy's place, I felt very much at home there, or like I was visiting a friend's place. Much nicer than a stuffy and sterile hotel room that you would pay three times as much for. The room and bed was very comfy, a view from the window, and best of all the kitchen was very well equipped, an excellent selection of music to listen to and books to peruse. Also Trudy is a friendly, welcoming, helpful, and interesting host. Great bathroom with a bath as well - happy days!
Didn't manage to meet trudy , but the house was an easy fine . Warmth and the bed was cozy . Recommended to stay if ever in Queenstown .
On behalf of my girlfriend who stayed at this accommodation-
"Trudy's place is a short walk from the bus stop (2 stops after the airport) & 15 mins walk to the airport. It is easy to locate, and there's a huge garden! It is also very near the lake which has a splendid view of Queenstown.
I brought a trolley luggage, which was a bit difficult to get up/down her staircase as the room is on the 2nd floor. The bed has a heater, which is good for me. I chat a little with Trudy and it was good to at least see your host :) apart from that, I found the place a little dusty though."
