"What a treat! Not only was the home we stayed in lovely but the customer services was of a standard not often experienced these days. A special thanks to Margaret who went that extra mile for us - more than once. It was much appreciated, thank you and Abbi too. We will sing your praises to all who will listen! Looking forward to further vacations with the Relax it's Done team."

"Complete luxury with stunning panoramic views We absolutely loved this house. The photos don't capture how special it really is. Beautifully furnished with all the luxuries you need in Queenstown (gas fire, underfloor heating, heated towel rails, extra comfy beds), plus all the little things that make a holiday easier (hair dryer, coffee machine with pods, wine and chocolate on arrival). Beautiful location with majestic panoramic views across the lake and down to town. The managing team were on hand to answer all our questions and even come to the house to help us get settled in. Yes, it's a steep hill down to town which most people would avoid walking, but the house has an internal garage on a quiet street and only 1 minute drive/taxi from town, so don't let the location deter you. The location is the reason this house has beautiful panoramic views that aren't possible from any waterfront house in town. Highly recommended this place!!"

"Beautiful large home on top of the hill, with amazing views of Queenstown town centre and the bay. We spent New Years there and had a BBQ on the balcony and watched the fireworks at midnight. Couldn’t have had a better view! House has everything you could need and is well set up so you can be self-sufficient, cook at home, etc. Master bedroom is amazing and the bathroom is enormous! Very luxurious. Lots of little touches - like board games, DVD library and bathroom toiletries - made us very welcome and at home. Thanks for a great stay!!"

"What a pleasure it must be to live in this property. A very clean, modern house set in the hills with views to die for. The place was spotless and had everything we could possibly need, including some milk in the fridge for a cuppa when we arrived. Outstanding - could not have asked for more even at my gluttonous worst."
