House - Private room · Avalon Crescent, Queenstown, Otago 9300, New Zealand

The Space

NB: WE DONT CHARGE FOR EXTRA GUEST price is per room for 2 guests. This is the second bedroom.

UNFORTUNATELY our house is NOT child friendly as we dont have children ourselves, so we are unable to accept bookings with children.

We have 2 double bedrooms available. Each bedroom has a built in wardrobe. The 2 bedrooms share one bathroom with a spa bath and shower, so if youre our only guest the bathroom is all yours! There is a second toilet availble off the garage. The garage can hold 4 cars so you won't have to de-ice your vehicle in the middle of winter! or walk in the rain to the house as the garage has internal stairs.

The house has central heating which is a must in Queenstown especially if you are not a kiwi, so you will always be warm enough. The kitchen/ lounge is open plan on 2 levels. We have a selection of dvds and plenty of books for your pleasure. We also have sky tv with all the sports channels. The lounge is comfortable with a log fire and 2 large comfy sofas. The kitchen has the usual suspects like microwave, juicer and blender. Free WIFI available.

Continental breakfast is included for you to help yourselves when you wake. We have porridge, cereals, bread, a selection of jams, peanut butter, nutella and juice. Coffee and a selection of teas are available throughout your stay. We also have a coffee machine for your enjoyment.

We are 1 min from the bus stop or you can stroll down town. Views of the Remarkables from the lounge and kitchen, with a pleasant rear garden with table and chairs and BBQ.

We are in a pleasant neighborhood called Fernhill, with a corner shop, fish and chip shop and Vinos restaurant a short walk away if you don't want to head into town.

We are happy to help you plan your travel and see the sights of the Wakatipu region. Do you want to bungee, fly by wire, canyon swing, quad bike or just visit and sample the many winery s??? We are a great base for the ski fields, Remarkables, Coronet and Cardrona ski field or venture over the hill to Treble cone in Wanaka for the day. Queenstown is the place to be!

We are relaxed laid back hosts and dont stand on ceremony, If the dates required are unavailable we have a second bedroom.

Please check out our references, they speak for themselves! Also we are happy to negotiate rates for longer stays. We hope to see you soon.

  • Lovely home, great hosts, amazing view! We enjoyed our stay with Ian & Velda, lovely couple, nice room with great spa bath in the bathroom. Would recommend for anyone staying in Queenstown.

  • This was my first experience with airbnb and what a great introduction. Ian and Velda where amazingly welcoming and hospitable hosts. The room was clean and neat with a really comfortable bed - breakfast was plentiful and varied. A great place to stay, highly recommended.

  • Beautiful view, generous breakfast, friendly hosts

    March 2014
  • We had a great stay at Ian & Velda's home - they are both extremely welcoming and we felt very comfortable during our stay. Our room was spotlessly clean and fresh, as was the bathroom which has a great shower!

    Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of choice - amazing views of the lake from the breakfast table!

    We would highly recommend staying with Ian and Velda - perfect hosts and very friendly.

    March 2014
  • As all the others have stated, Ian and Velda are great hosts! The bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. The breakfast options were everything we needed as well!

    March 2014
  • Had a great stay with Ian & Velda! They were both very kind and helpful in giving us Queenstown advice. The bedroom and bathroom were both very comfortable and clean. The view from the kitchen is incredible - you'll want to sip coffee for hours. Ian and Velda fully welcomed us into their home and it made for a wonderful stay in Queenstown.

    March 2014
  • What a lovely spot! Fantastic view, comfortable bedroom, amazing bathroom (do try the spa bath). Ian was a great host who made us feel comfortable and welcome. We unfortunately didn't stay long or get to meet Velda, but will definitely choose to stay again if in Queenstown. Highly recommend.

    February 2014
  • We had a great stay at Ian and Velda's home in Queenstown. They are wonderful hosts, very welcoming and easygoing, and made us feel very much at home. They were easy to communicate with before and during ilium stay. We really appreciated the great breakfast, Ian and Velda's willingness to let us store some of our luggage while we did a side trip to Milford, and the use of the laundry machine also came in handy. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time in Queenstown, as there is so much to do there!

    February 2014
  • Velda and Ian are both excellent friendly hosts. Their communication prior and during the visit was excellent. I was made to feel very welcome and at home. The living room and kitchen have great lake views. The house is very clean and tidy. I love all the travel pictures. The cat is very friendly too. The bedroom is very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent with a range of cerals, fresh fruits, toast and condiments. I will recommend to family and friends and will come back one day. Thank you!

    February 2014
  • Velda and Ian: Lovely people, lovely house, lovely room (with a great view from the kitchen!). Nice location as well: easy to find and just a few minutes drive from Queestown Downtown.

pipe fitter
Hi, we're a happy go lucky couple who loves to travel. I am a self employed commercial pipe fitter working around Queenstown and the greater southland region. I live in this beautiful area with my wife Velda and our lovely cat Shortie. We have no children. Originally from the UK we have lived in Queenstown for the past 7yrs. Velda works as a mental health nurse within local medical centers and manages the community mental health team. Having travelled a fair bit Vancouver and the Canadian Rockies as well as Sri Lanka are amongst my top 10 holidays. I love New Zealand and have travelled both islands. I enjoy camping, fishing, movies, photography and music. When overseas we like to book everything ourselves and dont go to travel agents. As hosts we are both laid back and expect our guests to feel comfortable in our home. A good sense of humour helps, we are not party animals and enjoy relaxing. We love listening to other peoples travel stories and talking about different cultures. We are openminded and welcome everyone to our home. Life is not a rehearsal!
