About our home

Hi, We recently had exchangers from Bali stay for 2 weeks and they described the views from our homes as "Vitamin Views" that recharged their batteries, A pretty good description I think. Our home is very private. With lovely courtyard amongst trees, we renovated several years ago and added lots of oversized windows with double glazing and a 32-meter deck overlooking the lake which has the most incredible lake views towards the Cardrona Range located in the most sheltered and beautiful part of Queenstown. It is built over 3 levels with the TV room on the top floor, master bedroom & ensuite with balcony, kitchen and dining/living room with balcony and table and chairs for evening drinks on the middle floor opening onto the main lawn and 2 bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor, opening out to the bottom lawn and spa pool.
The lake views are fantastic, and we enjoy the best winter sun in Queenstown. our living room has an open fire and heat pump and 2 storey high timber ceiling. We have a large private courtyard with table and chairs and open fire pit. This is my wife's pride and joy, a lovely place for breakfast.
We have 2 mountain bikes and Kayaks available. We have Jessie our Labrador and Lucy our cats that come with the home for free cuddles. Take a walk along the beach front walking track below our home to th Hilton Hotel , over the bridge , along Frankton Beach to the pub, or Altitude Brewery or Boat shed cafe. True holiday bliss. We are looking for a holiday exchange for Christmas 2023 26- 8th January , and would consider any beach area for a summer or October swap. Try us out with an enquiry for your place. Our home is also available for all of June 2023.


More about us

  1. We are a married 50 plus old couple with a cat and a Labrador dog. I am a Real estate Consultant, and Deborah is a hairdresser and Marriage Celebrant. We have lived here for 27 years. We choose this location to live because of the walking track below the home and winter sun. We always feel like we are on holiday, you will too.

    We are open to any date for a swap, however you could do a non simultaneous swap as we have a family holiday home that can be swapped if we are working. So let us know where you are and when you want to swap?

We are located a few minutes walk from the Hilton Hotel on Loop Road at the Kawarau Falls bridge end of Kelvin Heights. The area is amongst the most expensive Real Estate in Queenstown. We have a beach and walking track almost below the house, where you can walk either to Kelvin Heights or Jacks Point Golf courses, Frankton beach or bike to downtown about 30 minutes around the lake. It takes 10 minutes to drive around Frankton Arm to downtown Queenstown with its bars and shops.
During the ski season, we have the sun on our house until 4 pm, and are a 1/2 hour drive from Remarkables Ski Field and Coronet Peak Ski Field.
