Amazing accommodation
Beautiful accommodation in a beautiful location - Apartment was clean, tidy and luxurious. On our road trip around NZ we stayed at 7 different locations and this would be by far our top pick. Private location with all the comforts for a relaxing stay. Only a short drive to a major shopping complex and other attractions around Queenstown - great location to base yourself from to explore... Our family loved it - we didn't want to leave this amazing place!!
