About This Listing
Queen bedroom in beautiful Goldfield Heights. From the lounge and deck enjoy beautiful views of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables. Handy to the airport, the local bus route and down town Queenstown, adventure is right on your doorstep!
We want our home to be your home away from home.
Your room is a warm comfortable refuge at the end of a busy day jumping off bridges or jet boating or mountain biking or skiing or ... well you get the idea.
Your room has one queen bed and is suitable for a single or a couple... if you are just friends & would prefer separate beds, we have a very comfy single mattress that can be made up to make the room a twin.
The cost of having this extra bed is $10 per night, which is payable direct to us on arrival at our home.
If you are needing this bed please make sure you let us know before you arrive so we can have it made up for you.
We also have a second room listed 'Lovely Lake & Mountain Views' if you need extra space or are travelling with friends.
Guests will have access to the kitchen, laundry, lounge & dining area. We have sky TV... and if the All Blacks or the Highlanders are playing, you can guarantee they will be on!
Wifi access to keep in touch.
Great water pressure in the shower and you share the bathroom with our other Airbnb listing, so if that room is empty you will have the bathroom all to yourself.
Interaction with Guests
We love Queenstown... we chose to make this our home because everyday we get to meet and talk to people from all over the world.
So if you stay with us we are available for chats, holiday advice and laughs. Or if you prefer to be left to your own devices we can do that to.
Minou & Mouse the resident cats are available for cuddles and purrs.
Meeca the dog is usually quite partial to a tummy rub & a sneaky biscuit!
We both work full time so are out and about but only a phone call away if needed.
Our home is in Goldfield Heights... the halfway point between the airport and down town Queenstown, so it is very handy to everything! The best thing about where we live is the view... and let's face it... that's why you come to Queenstown. So from our deck you can gaze at The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu to your hearts content.
The local Bus Route has a stop a 5 minute walk from our house... so very handy for heading to the shops or the airport. The Frankton Track is also nearby and is great for walking or biking.
Other Things to Note
This listing has a minimum 2 night stay. Please enquire if you would like to stay only 1 night directly. If we can assist we will.
We share our home with two cats named Mouse who loves cuddles & Minou who is a little shy but is very charming, and Meeca the dog... she's a big puppy & loves biscuits, cuddles & long walks.
Please treat our home as your home away from home... so please look after your space, respect others and no smoking.
We would appreciate the noise kept to a minimum at night time.
If you need to use the laundry, please ask first so we can show you how to use everything and no laundry to be done after 8.00pm.
We had such an excellent time at Sheena and Shrek's place! They were so welcoming and friendly, and their home was like a home away from home or us! (We especially loved playing with mika and mouse - their dog and cat!!) This was the best possible first air BnB experience we could have asked for. Thanks guys!! :)
This was a perfect set up for us in Queenstown with amazing mountain views! Sheena greeted us when we arrived and was extremely kind and helpful. We had a room to ourselves with a shared bathroom and we could come and go as we pleased. Everything was freshly cleaned and washed and made you feel right at home. The bed was so comfortable and the room was nice and quiet at night. We met Shrek later in the day and he was equally as nice and hospitable as Sheena. A wonderful surprise was that they provided breakfast in the morning, fresh fruit, cereal, and toast which was perfect. We wanted to spend more time there! Thank you so much, we will be sure to stop by again when we are back in town!
We had a great stay at Sheena and Shrek's beautiful home. Very well located with amazing views across the lake, the bedroom was spacious and well appointed and we were thankful for the generous breakfast provisions provided to us. It was the perfect quiet little haven we needed after an extremely busy week. Sheena and Shrek were lovely and welcoming, and we particularly enjoyed the company of their three pets Meeca, Mouse and Minou!
Sheena and Shrek are so fun and friendly. Sitting by the wood stove with their puppy and cats at our feet made us feel like home. When we arrived we were halfway through our 3-week trip and needed to wash clothes. Sheena and Shrek were happy to let us use the washer/soap and had a large sized drying rack that fit all our clothes.
The view from their place is the icing on the cake.
The room was very comfortable and Sheena and Shrek were very welcoming. We loved the company of their pets as well. We had a lovely time
Our stay with Shrek & Sheena was a real highlight of our trip around NZ's South Island. They were so easy to talk with & we felt very welcome & comfortable in their home. The room was spacious & the views from their living room/balcony are amazing. We were able to use their kitchen to cook meals in. Breakky was there for us to help ourselves with each morning. It is a short drive to Queenstown's city centre. Their cute pets Meeca, Minou & Mouse made our visit even more special! Thank you for having us & we look forward to coming back one day!
