This is our 1 Bedroom Studio Apartment, complete with separate entrance off the garage on the top level (driveway) of our modern 3 level home. Comfortably furnished and offering a full bathroom and spacious walk in robe. Features underfloor heating and a convection heater to keep you toasty in the Winter. A 2 plate hob and microwave ensure all of your holiday cooking needs are met and the fridge will keep things cool. In addition we have heaps of extra storage if you need things secure during your stay. Guest parking is also located at the top of the drive.
The Bus to downtown will take 4 minutes and is located at the bottom of our road, or if you love the outdoors it's only a 25min stroll to town with awesome views. The Frankton lakeside trail is the alternative route, entrance located by the Rees Hotel 5 minutes walk downhill. Access to the Queenstown Hill loop track is 20 minutes walk away.
If you're here for skiing or snow boarding we have 2 ski fields within 45 minutes (Coronet Peak and The Remarkables), busses at the bottom of the street. 3 additional fields are within 1.25 hours (Cardrona, Snow Park and Snow Farm) so there's plenty of opportunity from cruising, terrain parks, cross country skiing or half pipe antics..enjoy. Outside of ski time there's a myriad of activities available close by including mountain biking, hunting, fishing, paragliding, zip trek, gondola and luge, bungee, river rafting, canyoning, jet boating, climbing, wine tours....
We are used to guests from all over the world and are well established in Queenstown. If it's advice, adventure or even a game of golf or tennis, skiing.... just ask and we can more than likely make it happen for you...I'm often off Hunting, diving and getting into the mountains in the 4WD, so let me know if you want to tag along. I have even been known to go off chasing those elusive Hobbits...
...and if there's anything at all you need we're only just downstairs....So welcome to our home!
**STOP PRESS** WINTERS COMING....BOOK EARLY
Self contained flat but feel welcome to pop down to see us anytime. Use the deck and beanbags at your leisure
Interaction with Guests
Up to you. We're friendly and have the occasional glass of wine so feel free to pop in. Peter-Ray is a qualified Massage Therapist and offers a very special rate for our guests.
Close to town but far enough away to escape from the eternal noise of tourists partying to all hours in the bars.
Remarkables Park shopping easily accessible by bus in 10 mins of 4 mins to Town. We're just off the main thoroughfare and it's a short hop across the road to the lake and Frankton cycling/walking track.
Bottom of the street are 2 bus stops so you can go either way. Ask to borrow the bikes if you wish.

Amazing view! Space was just as described. Convenient to town. Would recommend and stay again.
My husband and I had a fabulous time here! The upstairs apartment was spacious, clean, and cozy. The view was incredible, and out hosts were most welcoming and a joy to spend time with. Thank you for everything! We would highly recommend this listing.
Peter-Ray was a great host and extremely helpful at our stay at Driftwood, the studio was a great size and very relaxing to stay at and had a great view as well, but it was also a nice space to chillout and read a book (or two).
A Great studio to base yourself out of with your visit to Queenstown! Fantastic views from the front deck! Thanks for your hospitality Peter-Ray!
We had a wonderful stay at Peter-Ray's complete with a lovely bottle of local wine and a sunset which couldn't be beat! He was very knowledgeable and friendly and the accommodations exceeded our expectations!
Fantastic place to base yourself to see all that Queenstown has to offer. Peter-Ray and Li Ying are excellent, friendly hosts with lots of top recommendations to enjoy this beautiful part of NZ! Superb quality accommodation.
Luxurious studio apartment perfect for our stays in Queenstown. We will be here three times in November and are looking forward to going back each time. Peter Ray and Li Ying are great hosts, very friendly and helpful. The views from their apartment are spectacular and it is great to be able to stay somewhere like this. The bed is super comfortable and the bathroom like in a quality hotel. We cooked our meals at night using the hotplates and microwave as all cooking equipment and plates are available for use. We also stored our day packs in their garage while we were off tramping between stays.
