2. Simple and minimalistic 2-bedroom apartment (from USD 79)

Conveniently located at Ballarat Street, this cute and quaint apartment has a small cosy lounge for you to watch some TV or relax after a busy day. Note that Wi-Fi is complimentary. There is a comfy sofa for 2 in the lounge, but it is not big enough for anyone to sleep on. Do note that this cute and lovely apartment only sleeps 4, in 2 bedrooms. Head into the light open-plan kitchen, fully equipped with a two-hob stove, microwave, Nespresso machine, kettle, toaster, and all crockery, cutlery, and glassware for you to whip up a feast and enjoy it with a glass of wine. The master bedroom is light and spacious with lake views and a large ranch slider door that opens up to the front of the Airbnb apartment. Both bedrooms are beautifully decorated, each complete with a queen-sized bed and an en suite bathroom.

3. Stunning views from a 2-bedroom home (185 USD)

This light-filled home has the most stunning views for you to admire. Feel the hot bubbling water against your skin as you relax in the hot tub and admire the uninterrupted views over Lake Wakatipu across to Cecil Park, a gorgeous sight indeed. An outdoor hot tub is great, but how about dining with a view? The possibilities are endless in this fantastic holiday house! The living room is large and spacious. Hop onto one of the many couches and catch some TV, or simply soak up the relaxing ambience of Lake Wakatipu from this stunning Airbnb home. This beautiful antique bed is over 100 years old. It grumbles a bit when in use, but is still super sturdy on its feet! Bunk beds are the best if you are travelling with children, because they will absolutely love them! This sparkling clean bathroom has a bathtub if you think the outdoor hot tub is getting boring. The view from here isn’t that great compared to outside, but it is still a pass if you ask us!

4. Beautiful and comfortable 1-bedroom apartment (185 USD)

Step inside this modern, trendy, and light-filled Airbnb apartment that has amazing views over the lake and to the Remarkables mountain range. The soft and comfortable interior of the living room makes anyone instantly feel at ease. Grab a book and snuggle up on the beautifully dressed sofa bench, under the soft lighting of the delicate light ball. It’s a perfect way to spend the afternoon! If books are not your kind of thing, how about some TV shows instead? One good thing about this vacation rental is the soft and comfortable lighting. The bed sure does look comfy, but the lighting completes the whole look, giving this room a calm and serene vibe. A cold drink and some brightly coloured chairs are just what you need to relish the beauty of Queenstown.

5. Elegantly decorated room with en suite bathroom (from USD 121)

Newly decorated and great for couples that would like a location close to town, this luxuriously furnished room with an en suite bathroom is one to recommend! There is a secluded cosy spot at the corner of the suite where you can sit or store some of your luggage. What is more glorious than having a balcony attached to your room? Open up the wooden doors, it’s time to welcome the magnificent view and fresh cool air! The best way to unwind after a long day is a refreshing soak in a bath tub. Look out and bless your eyes with views of lush greenery; it’s a relaxing sight! Although this is a private room in the owners’ house, the guests are also given access to the common living space. Feel free to have your meals at the dining table, or lounge on the couches while watching some TV. Breakfast is included!
