House, 3 Beds, 2 Baths, mountain lake views balconies open fire wifi
I am semi retired and move between Queenstown and Sydney, where my family live. I love scenery and gardens and find Queenstown an ideal place to enjoy with family and friends.
Adelle purchased this House in 2000
Why Adelle chose Queenstown
We fell in love with Queenstown after staying just one night in 1968. We love the location and after all this time, it is still beautiful. We have been able to share this with our family and friends and now open it to select guests.
What makes this House unique
Our Home is on the Queenstown Hill above the town where you can relax inside or outside on one of the numerous decks and enjoy the views and scenery. Our Home has it all...luxury, comfort, views, privacy. We have modified our Home to make it comfortable and cosy and it is a pleasure to be in, regardless of the season.

Superlative views, tons of space, super stocked pantry!
We enjoyed our stay at Adelle's place immensely. It's huge! We had lots of space to not be on top of each other and every window had spectacular views. Wonderful variety of heating options gave each person in our party a way to be comfortable.
Comfortable beds, W/D in good working order, several outdoor patio options to enjoy the view and air.
Loved being up so high above the city - it was quiet and peaceful yet a quick jot to the city below for dining, shopping, groceries, etc. Private driveway parking off the street.
Lovely gardens full of roses that smelled heavenly.
I'm a cook, and this place was a dream! A pantry stocked for cooking - spices, oils, a wide variety of condiments - even flours, corn starch, baking soda, etc. for baking (but I could not find a muffin tin or cookie sheet or loaf / cake pans). Even a break maker with flours, yeast and instructions. I didn't realize what a rarity that would be in AirBNB's until later in our travels in NZ where some did not even provide salt! So if you love to cook, this is the place to fix a meal in and enjoy it on the patio or in the dining room overlooking the cit, water & mountains. Plenty of dishware and glassware, BBQ grill.
This place could easily accommodate sleeping for 3 couples with room to spare. So nice having 2 powder rooms on top of the 2 full baths.
Generous provisions for hot beverages (coffees, teas, hot cocoa). Some cereals and honey, too, but be sure to bring your own breakfast provisions (milk, eggs, bread, butter, etc.)
We would definitely stay there again.
P.S. out of respect for the pristine off white carpets we took off our shoes upon entering and padded about in our socks and slippers. With the heated floors and lush carpets it was totally comfy to do so.
We feel that having extras, like spices and sauces etc for guests is not hard to do, and can make a huge difference to your enjoyment. As it is our Home and not just set up for rental, there are a lot of personal touches and everything is geared for comfort and relaxation.
There are baking pans, mixers and everything that is needed for baking and gourmet cooking. ( I'll have to make sure they can be more easily found.)
There is no nicer place to dine than on our balcony, where it is quiet, being above the town, overlooking the Lake and also enjoying our garden.
The house was clean and comfortable and the views were just amazing.
Guests always comment that it is easy to enjoy Queenstown without even leaving our house. It's a great place to relax.
We had a wonderful 3 nights stay at Adelle’s house. We highly recommend it. The view from the living room/dining room is heavenly. If you want to relax and chill with family and friends, this is the place to stay. We didn’t mind the walk down to town (around 20 minutes) and we just take Uber coming home in the evening as we are all tired from the days activities. We hope to be back again in Queenstown and Adelle’s house. Btw, communicating with Adelle and Liz was great too.
It's very easy to chill out in front of the fire, and just moving from one comfortable area in our Home to another provides a different aspect throughout the day.

Fantastic property, couldn't fault anything at all. The location and views are just sensational. I would highly recommend this property to all and the car for hire was a great bonus. Can't wait until next year for another stay!
Spectacular home with spectacular views!
Every word describing this house by the owner and what is said in the reviews are right on, if not better when you are there! The house is well laid out for friends and family sharing, very comfortable, stylishly decorated with wonderful appointments from the owner's travels, with beautiful gardens and spectacular views all around, day and night! We greatly appreciated the "honor system" for supplies that were there and knowing our arrival time, having the refrigerator stocked with breakfast, was a very nice touch and greatly appreciated. It was difficult to want to leave and go into Queenstown or sightseeing, but we did find the walk downhill invigorating...cabbed it home as many have said they did! The convenience to town for restaurants, pubs, live music, sightseeing tours, basically all activities you would want, was excellent and made it that much more fun to visit. The owner as well as Julia, who greeted us upon arrival, made the rental experience easy and very simple! We also rented the car which served us very well and again, made the whole travel experience such a pleasure. We would highly recommend this home and hope to return ourselves at some point!
Our photos can't capture the full impact of the views we have, the way we have been able to maintain privacy with our garden separating us from neighbours, and the comfort in our home. There is an exclamation of "wow" whenever you enter...regardless of time of day or season.
