Perfect location if you want to see the best of Queenstown from a beautiful home with relaxed hosts.

The space

About ten minutes from Queenstown on the road to Glenorchy and Paradise.

This is the perfect alpine base for travellers who really want to make the most of their time in this area and enjoy being out in the country. 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.

We have a large modern home on an acre of privacy with native trees and birds to enjoy in summer.
In winter we have underfloor heating and a big open fire.

The bedroom with queen size bed comes with your own private bathroom and lake and mountain views from the bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom opens out onto the deck overlooking Lake Wakatipu.

Glenorchy is 30km away with the beginning of the world famous Routeburn track, Paradise and lots of other great sight seeing.
If you are a Lord of the Rings fan we are 2 kms from the Closeburn location of Amon Hen and the 12 Mile Delta location where Sam and Frodo faced the "Oliphants" and cooked "Coneys".

Come stay with us! We have many years airbnb hosting experience and very relaxed having guests sharing our home.

We are happy to offer a 10% discount if you prefer to skip breakfast. Please email us for this special offer.

This is definitely the dream house! We could enjoy the stunning view of the lake and mountains as well as shining stars in the night. Finn and Liz are very nice and helpful. I like the the yogurt! They also gave us a lot of useful suggestions on travelling. We mistakenly parked our car in the holiday park which was not permitted, and Liz kindly helped us solve this problem. I would say this is the best bnb during my trip. Highly recommend!

Well what can I say that no one else has said. Finn and Liz were awesome hosts. The house has the most spectacular views to awake to every morning. He house is really well situated, Away from the busy streets of Queenstown. It was absolutely perfect . My wife and I will return for sure and recommend this place to all our friends Sam the dog was an added bonus as we are pet lovers, made us feel right at home. I feels we have made new friends with Finn,Liz and Sam. Thank you for a truly wonderful experience.

Gem tucked in the hills right outside Queenstown with spectacular views - the photos are spot on. Finn and Liz were welcoming and communicative, setting us up with breakfast, providing suggestions for the area, encouraging us to use the deck and common areas. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

This is definitely the most beautiful and cozy room I have ever seen and experience, not to mention hosts' friendliness, kind, and hospitality. Sam is just too cute. His welcoming our arrival just made the bad weather away.

Liz and Finn were fantastic! They are both very welcoming hosts and were happy to engage as much or as little as we pleased, answering all of our questions and giving us excellent recommendations for the area. Their home is absolutely beautiful and well maintained inside and out with spectacular views, even better than photos could show. It is a perfect place if you want to stay just outside of Queenstown but with easy access. Their dog Sam is very friendly and was such a pleasure to have around as well. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and hope to return again someday! Highly recommended without hesitation!

You have no idea how amazing the house is until you are at the house. The views there are wonderful. Finn and Liz are very friendly and welcoming. Sam, the smart dog, likes people very much. I will definitely recommend the house to everybody looking for a sunny vacation in Queenstown. Follow the direction on the airbnb page, you will find the house easily.

Hi, We have been hosting on AIRBNB since 2012. We love living in Queenstown and sharing our knowledge and experience.
Liz grew up in the area and came back after 20 years working overseas. She is now teaching photo organisation and
Finn grew up in Sydney. He worked many years in hospitality and is now a Jet Boat Driver at Dart River. He's a pretty good kayaker and mountain biker.
We spend part of every winter in a warmer place and come back for the last few weeks of the ski season.
We are proud of our home and the surrounding area and very happy to share it all with you.
Look forward to hear from you :)
Finn and Liz
