This place had everything we needed and was nice and cosy A beautiful location and beds were very comfortable
Host:
We thought the scenery was absolutely spectacular
Firstly we were not sent any information about accessing the property making our arrival more problematic than necessary and the owner did not return our call when we tried to make contact
so having a heat pump was very useful
This was so steep and in disrepair that our car (a 4wd) slipped a number of times in good weather and actually slid sideways and got stuck when there had been minimal rain
A more thorough cleaning should be done
Location:
Nice location in the centre of Queenstown
Beautiful view and a great location
The place is about a 15 min walk from downtown Queenstown via the main road
Loved every second we spent here Great location away from the noise yet close enough to be where you want in minutes
