The Homestead

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5.5 baths
Don’t let the quaint exterior and 15-acres of orchards fool you, this masterfully-restored farmhouse, 13-kilometers from Queenstown, is a marvel of modern design. Relax in the hot tub and gaze upon lake and mountain views. Read by the fireplace while the kids play life-sized chess or petanque. Then, head to Queenstown for a night at the casino, a romantic dinner for 2, or a private yacht charter.
Follow 100-year-old Sequoia trees down The Homestead’s driveway to unveil a beautiful home outlined in rose gardens, lush lawns, and scenic landscapes. Inside, a thoughtful collection of furniture and art from around the World is sure to spark conversation at dinner parties. The state of the art kitchen is sure to inspire culinary creativity. And, the chandelier-lit dining area is the perfect scenic setting for an amazing meal.
After dinner, move the party to the living room and have the entertainer in your group play something on the piano. Then, move the party outside to sample the local wine in the floating fireplace lounge. On quieter evenings, explore the greenhouse, keep up with your workout routine in the exercise room, or hop in the swimming pool for a midnight dip.
In the morning, set out for an adventure on the Remarkables Mountian Range, home to World-class skiing at Coronet Peak, and golf at Queenstown Golf Course. For dinner, Skyline Queenstown offers incredible city and mountain views from its restaurant, Stratosfare. And for some action on the water, sign-up for sailing lessons at Wakatipu Yacht Club.
