The Beach Batch is a semi-self contained apartment underneath our family batch (36 years in the family) located just 10 seconds walk from Lake Wakatipu in Frankton, Queenstown.
The house was built in 1947 and has been added to and well maintained all these years. You'll feel like your going on summer holidays with relatives at your favourite place to have fun.
Featuring and open plan lounge and kitchen, the apartment is cozy & feels just how a batch should. Relax on the soft leather couch while taking in the vistas of the surrounding mountains and down to the lake as far as you can see.
There is one very, very large bed room with 1 Queen size bed and a set of bunk beds. The other room has a queen bed, giving families with different age kids flexiblity in bed times.
The kitchen is small but functional with toaster, hot plate, microwave, jug & all utensils needed. A BBQ just outside is for your use as well. There is no ventilation over the cooker so we ask that you cook outside where possible.
There are plenty of food options within a 5 minute walk if you want. From fast food to very nice dinning.
The bathroom/toilet is small and consists only of a shower.
The apartment consists of board games,TV,
and a video player.
All linen is provided along with a porta cot if needed(provided on request).
Beakfast can be provided by prior arrangement. Please order when booking room.
Our aim is to make you feel comfortable and at home while you stay in Queenstown. New beds and some mod cons will make sure you enjoy your stay.

We have a Laso Alpsa/Maltese cross dog named Harper whom might come to visit. She is very friendly and does not shed or bite. She only wants to get a pet or look for food. Harper might wander in if the door is open. She will leave if asked or told to get out.
WINTER June to September: these months are very cold in Queenstown and for a few weeks in the middle of July/early August we don't get sun on the house. It can be icy at times and getting cloths dry is an inconvenience at times but worth it!
We still have great views and awesome skiing.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Other Things to Note
Please be aware that we don't get any sun on Beach Batch in the middle of the winter and it can get cold and slippery in our driveway. The mountains are sunny! We have electric blankets and good heating so the room is warm. Drying Ski gear can be difficult overnight. We do provide a dehumidifier to help with drying.
Enjoy the Views!
Please No smoking on property or anywhere near.
Please no parties and if you are coming in late please try to be thoughtful of others in the house and neighbors.
Do not give the dog ANY food at all it will make her sick
Please use the outdoor BBQ for cooking where possible. IF your concerned about the cooking please contact us.
Hostess very graciously welcomed us in to her downstairs apartment. She was very kind, helped us with our laundry and trash. She made sure we felt accommodated. A little distant from downtown Queenstown, but a great location if you have transportation or are willing to walk. Great view of the lake! Would definitely stay here again!
We love the Beach Batch very much!Leone is definitely a sweet mom.Paul is very nice and friendly.Thanks for your hospitality.We stayed there for 2nights just like our own home.I wish you like our little gift and hope that can bring good luck to your whole family.The only thing I can say is everything is perfect.The view is stunning just outside the window. We would definitely stay here if we go back NZ next time.
Paul,Leone are very helpful and easy going;and the location of their house is very fine,the view are so beautiful and we love it so much, rooms are clear,every thing is very good.
Leone met us when we arrived at our check-in time and made us feel very welcome. She showed us around the Beach Batch which is a great apartment about 5-10 minutes from downtown Queenstown. The two bedrooms have comfortable beds, along with clean linens and towels. Combined with a functional kitchen and a nice living room with a fantastic view, this is a great choice when visiting Queenstown.
They were nice and friendly and sad we were welcome to join them if we wanted. The place locked very big in the photos, which it was not. But it was enough for the four of us.
I stayed here for two nights with my parents and it was perfect for our needs. We used the kitchen for breakfast each morning and slept great each night. The location is walking distance to the Real Journeys bus stop and sits right next to a walking path that runs along the lack into Queenstown. With we had more time to stay and explore!
We love living in Queenstown as a family and like to share this place with others. Our 2 oldest have moved on to other cities and countries and only the youngest is at home.
We like kayaking, biking and watching good movies. Paul sings, Josh plays drums and Leone is learning the guitar so we love music.
Leone is a kiwi and Paul is an American whom has been here since 1988.
Leone travelled all over the world for 10 years and has seen many countries. She loves swapping travel stories.
We do have a passion for coffee and food and love to get great food recipes from our guests. So if you have one bring it!
