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.
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 and is clean, modern and has everything you will need for your visit. All linen is included and a complimentary gift bowl of tasty treats is supplied.
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.
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. However, we may be able to arrange a pick up and drop off for a small fee.
Other Things to Note
Grant is a hiker, mountain biker, hunter, fisherman, and ex commercial paua diver. Monica is an avid gardener, artist and works in the tourism industry. She will be happy to advise you about all the activities available in this adventure capital. We share a private driveway with our neighbours and offer off road parking. Free WIFI.
Our property is peaceful and quiet, so if you are in the mood to party, central Queenstown will be more suitable for you. We may allow pets but they will never be allowed on the furniture. No smoking inside.
A lovely location - just far enough from the bustling town during the busy holiday season, yet close enough to all the local attractions. And so quintessentially Queenstown, with the lake, bush and mountains almost within arm's reach. Warm and cosy living accommodation, with well equipped facilities. Sadly, we weren't left with much time to get to know our hosts better (due to our busy schedule) but would surely come back another day!
Great and beautiful place to stay where you feel like home and welcome. Monica and Grant are very flexible and friendly. My family had great time and loved the place. Their hospitality and beautiful garden add the attraction to come back here again.
We love where we live and make the most of the beautiful location we are lucky enough to call home. We love sharing it with others and have made many friends over the years through the WWOOF network and through our accommodation here at Wlson Bay.
