About this listing
Wake up in your home away from home to the dawn chorus of tuis and bellbirds. Only 8 minutes drive from downtown Queenstown at Wilson Bay. You will be staying in a lovely, clean, and modern fully self contained room with a queen and single bed with ensuite and kitchenette.
We live on a property where we are returning the environment back to native New Zealand bush, but we also enjoy a garden profuse with flowers and edible plants and fruit in summer. Our ever growing populations of tuis and bellbirds are a constant delight and they will serenade you with their famous bird song all year round. Your room is fully self contained with ensuite and kitchenette and is clean, modern and has everything you will need for your visit. All linen is included. We supply tea, milo, instant coffee, sugar, milk, and chocolate cookies. You are welcome to sample the bounty of our many fruit trees, wild strawberries all around our property , and vegetable garden in summer. In winter the roads around Queenstown can be icy and covered with grit, please take care. In winter our steps to your room and the bridge across the stream can also be icy, please take care.
As a guest with us, you are welcome to explore our property and to make yourselves at home in any of the many lovely spots we have created to sit back, relax and enjoy our piece of paradise. We live on the top floor of our home and your self contained room is on the ground floor of our home. We are happy to assist you at any time you may need help.
Interaction with guests
We will have as little or as much interaction with you as you wish, and we will be happy to offer as much or as little advice as you would like to make your experience in Queenstown unique and memorable.
Wilson Bay is hugely popular with the locals in summer for water sports, and all year round for the Wilson Bay walking track and the renowned 7 Mile mountain biking tracks. Try your luck fishing in the bay or at one of the many hotspots nearby. We also live in close proximity to many other walking, hiking and mountain biking tracks.
You will require your own vehicle.
