The Space

Close to Queenstown on the road to beautiful Paradise and Glenorchy.

Alpine environment perfect for travellers who really want to make the most of their time in this area and enjoy being out in the country. We are 10 minutes drive from the centre of Queenstown on the road to Glenorchy. The Wilson bay beach and "7 mile mountain bike trails" are right on our doorstep and many other popular hiking trails are within a few minutes.

The bedroom with queen size bed comes with your own private bathroom. (We have a second room with a king size bed for groups of 3 or 4 travelling together). The bedrooms open out onto the deck overlooking Lake Wakatipu.

If you are a Lord of the Rings fan we are right between the filming location of Amon Hen at Closeburn and the Ithilean scene where Sam and Frodo faced the Oliphants and cooked Coneys with Smigel at 12 mile delta!

The house is large and really well suited to guests. We have a lounge area as well as a TV room so there is plenty of space to share with us and have your own privacy. We have an acre of privacy with native trees and birds, large vegetable garden and lots of fruit trees. In winter we have underfloor heating and a big open fire.

Glenorchy is 30km away with the beginning of the world famous Routeburn track, Paradise and lots of other great sight seeing.

Come stay with us! We are in our second year hosting airbnb and enjoying meeting lots of new travellers.

Note:It is important that you are OK wth dogs as we have two very friendly dogs living in the house with us.

  • Excellent place to stay with outstanding hosts! Could not want a better accommodating for a 4 days stay in Queenstown. FYI, the dogs are awesome to play with and very well behaved. Will come back for sure.

  • We really enjoyed our stay with Liz and Finn! The house is really beautiful. The bedroom is clean and comfortable and the modern private bathroom is really nice.

    Liz gave us good tips on what to do (and where to eat) in Queenstown and nearby towns.

    If you are looking for a peaceful accommodation in a great location with helpful hosts, you should stay at Finn and Liz's 7th Heaven!

  • Let me start by saying...WOW. My husband and I recently stayed 4 nights at Finn and Liz's during a trip to NZ. The home, the location, and the scenario are breathtaking. Finn and Liz are two very genuine and hospitable hosts who made our trip something that we will talk about and dream about for years to come. If you are looking for a place to stay while in Queenstown, look no further. The home is set on a hill overlooking Lake Wakatipo and is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Queenstown. We personally enjoyed being a few minutes away from the hustle of downtown but close enough to go into town for lunch (Fergburger!), dinner, or drinks. Finn and Liz provided great recommendations for restaurants, hiking trails, and outdoor activities in the area. We can not wait to come back and visit with Finn and Liz again someday! Thank you so much!!

  • We regreted that our only one night stay in the amazing house due to our tight schedule! Everything is wonderful, the view is stunning, beds are comfortable, shower is great...
    Finn & Liz are friendly, so nice couple! We even had a great time with Sam and Billy (two lovely dogs) , hard to say goodbye when we had to leave :(
    I believe I'll be back and will visit whole nice family by then~

  • Liz and Finn were fantastic hosts. They went out of their way to make us feel at home, and had great recommendations for things to do in Queenstown. Their home is beautiful and modern and has a fantastic view of the lake. We enjoyed their company as much as we enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Queenstown.

  • Liz and Finn were incredible hosts. Their house is fantastic with stunning views over the lake. Highly recommended!! Their dogs are really nice and well behaved. The bedrooms are very comfortable and have views to the lake as well. Even the shower has views to the lake!!

    Don't give it another thought. This is the best place to stay in Queenstown by far. Just be as nice as Liz and Finn are!!

  • Wow ! What a beautiful house and view. Finn and Liz made us very welcome. We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer.

    January 2014
  • Finn and Liz are great hosts. We enjoyed our stay at their house. Liz gave us plenty of recommendations on restaurants and activities. Finn helped us book the Dart River jetboat and funyaks tour and provided helpful suggestions. We had fun in Queenstown. And their house is definitely amazing with the stunning view over Lake Wakatipu. The guestroom also has lake view and the bed is very comfortable. We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone.

  • We had a fantastic stay in Queenstown thanks to Liza and Finn, just outside town but only a few minutes drive in the perfect location. House has absolutely stunning views of the lake and mountains from all bedrooms, bathroom and lounge. Liz and Finn couldn't do enough for us, great couple.....would highly recommend

About
Hi, We love living in Queenstown. Liz grew up in the area and came back after 20 years working overseas. Finn has come from dunedin and now works as a tour guide at Dart River Safaris. He's a former olympic kayaker and a very keen mountain biker. Between us we love pretty much anything to do with the outdoors - hiking, paddling, skiing, mountain biking, gardening and walking our dogs. We also like preparing nice meals, reading good books, watching movies and doing yoga. This year we escaped Queenstown winter with 2 months in Bali and the Gili Islands. Last year we had 3 months in Cuba Mexico and the US. We are proud of our home and the surrounding area and love to share our knowledge and experience. Look forward to hear from you :) Finn and Liz
