"Hands down one of our best Airbnb’s we have ever stayed in. our friends group of six thoroughly enjoyed the location. Being able to swim at the end of the driveway and within walking distance to town. Our highlight though, was the deck. We had panoramic views of the mountains and sunsets were epic. We will definitely be back if we are ever in Queenstown. Highly recommend for groups and families."

"An incredible space! If your vision is sipping Pinot around an open fire with large windows offering incredible Wakatipu Lake views, in a house that is relaxed, spacious and rustic, then this is the place - easy (gorgeous) walk to town along the lake. It was perfect for our group of 7 adults on a hiking holiday - we would return!"

"The property is super nice, with super great view, great location, and good communication with Barbora and Abi. Don't hesitate to add extra cost for the spa, it was one of the best decision we ever made! Thank you for letting us enjoying the property!"

"We stayed for 8 nights. The location and view are outstanding. I would suggest one of the best in Queenstown. The house is very quiet and private. The size was good and the facilities generally adequate. The main issue is that the WIFI (ADSL) is unacceptably slow. We ended up using phone data. Communication was excellent and the listing was accurate."

"Beautiful views, warm cosy fire and a nice short walk to town. This was perfect for our two family trip to Queenstown. We loved this place, we got some beautiful photos from the deck, and we would stay again for sure. The host was easy to deal with, responded quickly and provided helpful and accurate responses. Would recommend this place for any group of 6-8 people."

"Wonderful lakeside location with thoughtful touches and amenities. Close to Queenstown without being in the center of town, and easy access to the surrounding attractions. The house comes highly recommended, especially for families and groups travelling together."

"Fantastic property with spectacular views. It is a 15-20minute walk to town but also the start of the Frankton track for those wanting to cycle or jog so very well located. We were two families with older children and found the house to be very spacious and met all of our needs. Margaret was a lovely host, very easy to communicate with and took the time to check us in and give all the handy tips one would need. We would definitely return!"

"This is a great house, close to the centre of town while still far enough away to avoid the noise. Margaret and team were very approachable and had excellent communication throughout. I would be more than happy to stay here again."

"Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday! Wakatipu lodge was exactly what we'd hoped for - walking distance to the center of Queenstown yet secluded enough to feel like a real getaway. The view over the lake from the large open deck is stunning and the open fire place and spa were very much enjoyed every night post our big days on the slopes! Our hosts left us a lovely bottle of wine and had warmed the house up for our arrival which was a lovely touch. Appelles products in each room were also very much appreciated! The kitchen is also fully equipped with everything you could need, so we really didn't need to leave the house at all if we didn't want it! Thank you again, we hope to be back!"
