It was really a great pleasure staying with Daniel and his wife, Jessica, (and their little girl) in their beautiful, modern and clean home. Daniel and Jessica were friendly, helpful and very thoughtful. They went the extra mile changing their initial plans in order to make their home available for us on the day after our 5 days Milford walk. They were also very easy-going, allowing us to do anything that we want freely (website hidden), doing laundry and watching television. Staying with them was so comfortable, carefree and fun that I would not even think about other option to stay in Queenstown. Thanks for being such great hosts!
Daniel and his wife Jess were excellent hosts. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and or a more perfect set up. The house is a beautiful 10-15 gorgeous walk from "downtown" Queenstown along the shores of the lake. It is spotless, very comfortable and quiet. Everyday we enjoyed our breakfast in their kitchen or backyard watching the Paragliders sail down over the Queensland Hills. The house is no more than a 2 minute walk down to the lake where you can see a beautiful view of the Remarkable Mountains.
Daniel and Jess gave us great recommendations in regard to daily activities and restaurants and we event went to dinner with Jess our last night. My only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer!
I would highly recommend this location because of...
Location, Location, Location! You can not get closer to the city. And you are right on the lake with beautiful views towards the mountains.
But mostly the wonderful host Daniel and his lovely wife and daughter. They set the perfect relaxed atmosphere for me before my Routeburn hike. We even watched a bit of Lord of the Rings together.
We totally enjoyed our stay with Daniel and Jess.. A very friendly and warn couple, and their lovely home. We used both bedrooms facing each other. Very private, clean and lots of room for big luggage. Bed linens are absolutely comfortable. And a big porch for washing and drying clothes. Daniel even gave us a ride to the airport. A great AirBnB choice!
Thanks Daniel and Jess for spending a wonderful evening chat over wine.. sharing stories and jokes.. it was really lovely. You made our New Zealand trip so special!
Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to meet Daniel as he had to go somewhere for the weekend. Nonetheless, we had a great time staying at his place. The place is really tidy and a few steps from the lake. One could just walk and sit by the lake. Also, its less than 5 mins drive to cbd. Really recommend the place. Would have loved meeting Daniel. Maybe in our next trip to NZ :)
Dan and his family were fantastic hosts! The house is in a good walkable location, and the backyard was a nice bonus.
Lovely couple. Lovely house. Cutest baby in the world.
Great place, very close to downtown and to the ski slopes. Daniel and his mother was super helpful in every respect, and went out of their way to pass on advice about where to dine, where to ski, and things to do in the area. I will definitely go back and recommend Daniel's place to anyone.
Daniel and his family are fantastic! My friend and I stayed two nights, and loved them so much we came back later in the week and stayed with them again. The house is beautiful and not far from town. We immediately felt at home and comfortable. Daniel and Jess are such wonderful, friendly people. They are easy going and accommodating and have the most adorable 6 month old. They were willing to hold our things while we left town for a couple days and we even discussed buying a car together to share. I hope we can cross paths again back in the US. I'd host them at my place anytime. :)
Daniel is very charming person, easy to communicate, fast in response and correct! Great clean apt, excellent location and very very comfy bed!!! My first airbnb experience was great! Thanks Daniel of course:)
Daniel and his wife are amazing guests!! Terrific communication and wonderful to have visit! Any host anywhere would be fortunate to have them stay in their home! Just lovely! So glad they came and hope they will return to the mermaid cottage!
