There is a locked off office in the house that is not available to the guests - that is pointed out as part of the info package when the guests arrive.
Interaction with Guests
I like to meet and greet my guests. I will then give them the keys and info pertaining to "Queenstown Central". I make sure they have my mobile phone number so that if THEY need to contact me there is no problem. I assure my guests that I will not contact them at all once our initial meeting is over but they are not to hesitate should they want to ring me.
The neighbourhood is mainly made up of rental properties. There is never any problems. It is a 5 minute walk to town. Extremely convenient especially if the guests do not have a rental car.
A very efficient taxi service is available 24/7 there is more than one company. There is also a public transport system with buses providing a great service. There are buses to Arrowtown and also to Coronet Peak, Remarkables and Cardrona ski fields.
There is a shuttle service and numerous taxi services from the airport
Other Things to Note
I would suggest that the guests go to 'Isite' which is the local information bureau. I also have a lot of information available at the house.
Treat "Queenstown Central" with respect. Please leave it clean and tidy (I do not expect my guests to do cleaning and laundry).
As far as animals are concerned - a small house dog is ok so long as we have made a prior arrangement.
There is a total smoking ban in the house but there are outside areas that are available.
Absolutely fantastic! Great location, stunning views and comfortable accommodation. Such a lovely homely feel. Thanks Maggie!
Ah.Maze.Ing. Maggie made me and my family feel so incredibly welcome. The house was perfect, with everything we needed to stay cosy and comfortable.
The house was a perfect distance from Queenstown - only a 10min walk away from the centre, but far away enough away to feel a million miles from everything.
Maggie's set up is awesome - a roaring fireplace and wood ready to go, great washing machine and dryer, fridge big enough for everyone, sound system and appliances all excellent.... Oh and Queenstown was incredible - in the centre most audacious ski fields, fantastic pubs and restaurants (great night life), small towns (Arrowtown and Glenorchy), crazy activities (you can see bungy, luge and paragliding from the dining room window!) and wineries.
Can't wait to come back.
Maggie was a great host! She made my family and I feel right at home, we had a lovely time! During our stay, it snowed, and she and her husband were kind enough to salt and shovel the driveway! The house was charming with a beautiful view of Queenstown. And, just walking minutes to town, great location!
We had a fantastic time in Queenstown. Everything was perfect! Highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wanting the' real ' Queenstown experience .
Maggie met us at the door to let us in and explain the house. The views are just as good as the pictures, and the house itself is really beautiful, very comfortable. It is a short but very steep walk up the hill to the house - but you are rewarded for your efforts with the beautiful view, decks x 2. We were very happy and comfortable.
Maggie was a fantastic host. Upon arrival to the airport, I simply sent her a message and she was waiting for me at the house. She gave me all the details on how everything worked....and also left us a bottle of wine! The listing was exactly as described. Such beautiful views and a quick walk to town. I highly recommend a visit!
