About This Listing
Your own private courtyard room with separate entry, ensuite and breakfast bar - all you need for somewhere cosy to stay while spending your days exploring beautiful Queenstown and surrounds.
The room has it's own entrance off the courtyard and is slightly separate from the main house. The room has an ensuite and breakfast bar with tea and coffee making facilities as well as a fridge, toaster and microwave for breakfast preparation.
We are more than happy for guests to use the courtyard during their stay but there is no specific access to lounge/dining/kitchen facilities - Queenstown has so many amazing cafes, restaurants, activities and entertainment so you are unlikely to need them.
Wireless internet is available on request and we have a range of dvds to borrow if you are having a quiet night in.
Peaceful and beautiful Sunshine Bay is only 5 minutes drive or a stunning 30-40 minute walk from the centre of Queenstown.
*A discount may be available for stays of 4 or more nights at certain times of the year*
We recommend guests have their own car but we would appreciate if guests park on the road due to keeping the neighbours access free. There is plenty of car parking on the main road and also a small free public parking area just around the corner on a very quiet street.
Interaction with Guests
We are locals who are working and renovating so we sometimes aren't around a lot but are happily flexible with check in and check out times where possible.
Sunshine Bay is a quiet and safe residential suburb near the heart of Queenstown with stunning lake and mountain views. From our house, it's only a 5-10 minute walk along the Sunshine Bay track to the lake edge through beautiful NZ forest. There is a reserve a few doors down and also a public tennis court/play ground out the back of the property.
There is a bus service to Sunshine Bay but to be honest, it isn't particularly frequent. The Fernhill bus route is much better and is about 1km away. We would suggest having a car.
Other Things to Note
Wireless internet is available on request.
At certain times of the year, for stays of 4 or more nights we offer a discount off the nightly rate. Please enquire.
We recommend having your own transport/car when staying here.
Perfect, private place for a couple. The hosts are really nice and friendly. The double room (it's basically a small apartment) is super clean and it's obvious that the hosts thought of every little thing. It's all in the details! I highly recommend this place - great value for money. Thanks Abby & Michael!
Michael and Abby met me upon arrival and showed me around the self-contained room. They were friendly and due to the nature of the property, I didn't see them again until my departure. The place was very nicely decorated and immaculately clean. The bed was very comfortable, the internet was fast and shower was plenty hot. Can't ask for much more. :) It's a couple of miles from town but it's in a beautiful area (as is much of Queenstown). I would recommend a car or a bike to get to town. Thanks Abby and Michael!
Little private cabin next to the house : really clean, well fitted out with a comfy bed and a strong shower. Better to have dinner outside but ok for a quick breakfast with products they nicely offered. We met really quickly Abby&Michael but they gave us a warm welcome.
Sorry, it wasn't very pleasant. The room is converted from a garage. It's cramped and the ceiling is low. So it's v claustrophobic. Also we have to pay along the streets. So it's really troublesome when we need something from the car. Also it's hard when it rains.
Dear Cassandra, we are a bit surprised about your comments as you didn't indicate you weren't happy with the room on your arrival or departure. We don't feel that we misrepresent our space and that is reflected in our very reasonable rate. We did warn you before the booking that it will be quite tight with the three of you. And we are upfront about the parking in our listing. All the best.
Abby and Michael are a friendly, open-minded and hospitable couple. Their place is cosy and clean - in your private area you literally have your own relam in which I felt comfortable and could relax! :-) I warmly recommend staying with Abby and Michael, you won't regret it!
