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.

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???

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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
The view from the kitchen window is sublime. Ian kindly collected us from the airport , after that we used the regular bus to come up the hill and walked down. The house was a great base for exploring Queenstown, and we really appreciated the help yourself breakfast system and being able to use the house freely. Ian and Velda gave us useful tips on where to visit and eat. Altogether a great 4 night stay.
Ian and Velda were great. They have a lovely home and were gracious and welcoming while respecting the privacy of their guests. Velda made sure there were fresh, healthy brekkie options available each morning and the room/bathroom was nice and clean. Thank you so much for an enjoyable stay in gorgeous Queenstown!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ian and Velda's. They were very welcoming and hospitable and their have a lovely home with stunning views of Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown. The bedroom is very comfortable and right next to a spacious and very well appointed bathroom. I also very much appreciated the helpful handout with tips that Velda provided me with. Top marks!
Lovely house a short drive from the town. The room and bathroom were very clean. There are 2 guest rooms and you share a bathroom with the other room if it's occupied. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very good with various cereals, bread to toast, spreads and fruit. Ian and Velda are very friendly, easy going people and were forthcoming with useful information on things to do around Queenstown. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Ian and Velda were amazing hosts, Ian helped us immediately and let us feel at home. The room was very nice, clean and colorful! The breakfast was amazing, they have a really good espresso coffee, great cereals and a stunning view from the kitchen! The bathroom is big, very clean and has a beautiful Jacuzzi!! We recommend to people that need an accommodation in Queenstown to chose Ian and Velda.We will come back! Francesca&Matteo
