About this listing
Our modern 4 bedroom house is situated on the sunny side of Queenstown, with huge lake views, indoor outdoor living and a roaring fire in winter.Enjoy walking and bike trails, bus and ferry links, and proximity to Remarkables and Coronet skifields
We have a modern compact house over 3 levels, poised on the edge of Lake Wakatipu. The guest room is a large room with a Queen Bed and seating area and a shared bathroom with doors onto the outside patio.It is quiet and separate from the main living area. We also have 2 single bedrooms at a lesser rate. We only rent one room at a time, so the bathroom is only shared if one of our children is visiting; otherwise the bathroom is for your sole use.
You will have a key to the house. WE have wifi and will give you a password upon arrival.
We have mountain bikes which you can use by arrangement.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to help with suggestions of what to do and places to see and enjoy. there is so much to do and see! We often walk or ski in the weekends and you are welcome to join us. We are generally home in the evening, and dinner is not provided. If you want to cook, then talk to us about use of the kitchen and cook alongside us and we can share mealtimes. We would prefer that the kitchen is only used once during the evening and washing up is done together. Ask questions!
For breakfast please join us for a light breakfast of cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast and jam and gerat coffee made by Roger, or tea if preferred. Please observe respectful times of use, and refer to the house manual.
We have fantastic sun, great views and are close to shops, walking and cycling tracks and both ski mountains. We live in the suburb of Kelvin Heights, but with the great view of the lake we dont feel suburban! Our house is warm with a fire and central heating. We are next door to the Hilton Hotel so coffee shops, eating , pubs are within walking distance.(100m)
There is a bus (not frequent) into the main town of Queenstown, and a water taxi every hour. the water taxi is $10 dollars each way.We are on a cycle route that will take you into town in about 25 minutes. There is a great little coffee shop stop on the way. We are 5 minutes from the airport.
Other Things to Note
We have enjoyed being virtual tourists and learning about the countries of our guests. Please tidy up after yourselves, and feel free to watch TV, make a cup of tea and coffee and get your own breakfast if you get up later than us! Food for breakfast will be available.
No smoking please, inside and out. As we both work it would be great if kitchen use is restricted to before 8.30pm at night.
