Sprawling hilltop estate with city and lake views

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5 baths
Discover breathtaking mountain scenery, vibrant city life and award-winning local wines at Stelvio. Set on a rise overlooking downtown Queenstown, glacial Lake Wakatipu and the snow-tipped peaks of The Remarkables, this luxury South Island vacation rental is just minutes from skiing, golf and outdoor adventure sports, as well as dining and nightlife. Thoughtful contemporary architecture and five bedrooms let you enjoy the scenery on a relaxed family holiday or an active getaway with friends.
Designed to take full advantage of the mountain and lake views, Stelvio opens to a spacious terrace with lounge furniture, a barbecue and an al-fresco dining area. On cooler evenings, flip on the sound system and indulge in a soak in the hot tub or cozy up to the outdoor fireplace on the built-in sectional. For your convenience, the house has an exercise room, space for gear storage and even an elevator; for your entertainment, choose from the games room and home theater.
Gorgeous modern interiors rendered in soft wood paneling, textured stone and wall-to-wall glass make the villa warm and inviting while placing the views center stage. Two sitting areas with plush sofas and patterned area rugs bookend the open-plan great room, while a dining table with room for twelve and a whimsical branch chandelier sits between. The fully equipped chef’s kitchen has a wide stone-topped breakfast bar and opens to the outdoor kitchen.
Abstract artwork, iconic modern pieces and mountain views make the bedrooms at Stelvio feel like private retreats. The honeymoon-worthy master suite has a king bed, en-suite bathroom and its own balcony with a lounge and yoga platform. There are two more bedrooms with king beds and en-suite bathrooms, one with a queen bed and en-suite bathroom, and one that’s perfect for children with two twin beds and a shared bathroom.
The vistas from Stelvio make it feel like the scenery is part of your living space—and with the Coronet Peak ski area just over 16 km away and The Remarkables lifts about 24 km away, the mountains really are that close. If you’re visiting during the New Zealand summer, make the 2.4 km drive to the gondola and luge course at Skyline Queenstown, or the 16 km drive to Queenstown Golf Course. With its waterfront restaurants and lively shops, downtown Queenstown is well worth the 5-minute drive from the villa.
