In the suburb of Quail Rise, you are just a short distance away from two walking trails that will allow you to experience the beauty of Queenstown. This split-level apartment is close to but separate from the main house where the hosts reside.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights fill the apartment with sunlight. The small dining table can easily be converted into an office desk with magnificent views. The living room opens to a deck that runs on two sides of the apartment and is a great spot to relax and contemplate. For its price, the property is a steal! Additionally, guests booking it for month-long stays enjoy further discounts.

Nestled on a lake and close to Kawarau Falls, this rental is just a 10-minute drive to The Remarkables Ski Area. This absolutely gorgeous apartment is a spacious option in a scenic location, perfect for long-term stays. If you plan to stay here for more than 28 days, the host offers generous monthly discounts.
Large glass panes throughout this duplex apartment allow you to enjoy the scenic lake and the surrounding area. The only drawback might be that the apartment only comes with a compact kitchen - but then you don’t want to be toiling away in the kitchen when on holiday. The living room leads to a private landscaped garden complete with outdoor dining. Plus, there are several restaurants nearby at the heart of the town.
During the summer you will love to enjoy outdoor meals with views of the lake and the mountains for company.
