At our first time using Airbnb we couldn’t have asked for anything more from the initial booking to the hospitality we received during our eight night stay. Correspondence through Benn was quick, with easy to follow directions and helpful information on request.
On arrival we were greeted by the host, Vicky – the hostess with the mostest, she made us instantly feel comfortable and at home. The house is warm and comfortable and allows you to have your own private living downstairs however we often found ourselves sitting down over a glass of wine with our amazing host as she shared her knowledge and experience of the area with us. Her local knowledge was invaluable for first time Queenstown visitors helping us get the most out of our time there and the best deals.
You can’t help but be blown away with spectacular views of the lake and mountains especially at sunrise. It has all the modern day comforts with quick wifi, comfortable beds, clean, new facilities and a delicious breakfast each day.
“On the Top” is an easy and obvious choice for me, I would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be returning to what feels like my New Zealand home now.
This would have to rate as the best AIRBNB stay of all our AIRBNB experiences. Waking up each morning to the AMAZING lake view was so AWESOME! The house was excellent accommodation, own modern bathroom, beds were comfortable, heating was absolutely excellent, breakfasts prepared by Vikki were "top value", she prepared poached eggs on toast at our request each morning and they were cooked to perfection. But that wasn't all she prepared, she had yummy healthy cereal, fresh fruit, fresh juice, and of course hot tea & coffee. Vikki was so bubbly and friendly we felt like we were part of her family. In fact we became so close we are keeping in touch with her. She really made our stay a memorable one that we will never ever forget. We miss her already. Oh by the way this house is located so close to town in Queenstown, only a 5 minute drive. We loaned their car to drive to Coronet Peak each morning for our snowboarding adventures and it was hired to us by Ben and Vikki at an absolute bargain price - what a bonus. This was a perfect holiday and we will be definately coming back to stay at "On the Top" in Queenstown. We highly recommend staying here for your next AIRBNB stay in Queenstown - It's the perfect place to stay.
A great place to stay and an even better host! If anything, the "On The Top!" host's/Ben's description sold the place short.
The bedroom, den/office, and bathroom are wonderful - clean, neat, well decorated, Sky TV, super-fast internet, washer and dryer, plenty of room to relax. The views from the rooms are outstanding overlooking Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range. You basically have your own condo/apartment on the entire lower floor. The upstairs kitchen and living room areas are equally as nice.
Vicki, the host (Vicki lives in the house; Ben, her son, handles the reservations), is super-fun, personable, easy to talk to and knowledgeable about the area. She's a really fun person to spend time with and will give you great recommendations for restaurants, bars, area attractions, wineries, etc. If you don't spend time socializing with her, you're missing out.
Ben is extremely attentive and proactive. He communicated with me numerous times before my arrival to make sure that I knew directions, had any questions, could find the key, was enjoying my stay, etc.
I would highly recommend "On The Top." It was the best place that I stayed during my three week trip around New Zealand.
Benn is very kind person. My visit to the appartments was really pleasure. Appartments is really great, it has the own soul.
Apartment left clean and tidy, easy to deal with.Would welcome them back
Ben was on the road working so there where a few communication difficulties. We also had some testing moments when Ben arrived that he was not responsible for. Throughout these issues Ben was always pleasant and positive to deal with. I was happy finally get him settled into the property which he appreciated very much. Ben and his friend looked after our place well and I would not hesitate to have him back.
