Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The cottage is located on the grounds of our iconic 1888 residence and is surrounded by vineyards and spectacular mountain views.

Access to the cycling trails starts at our driveway; there numerous cellar doors within a few minutes walk.

We are about 25 minutes drive from the Coronet Peak and Remarkables ski hills and less than 15 minutes to Arrowtown (and some great restaurants!)

The space
The cottage was recently constructed and has double-glazed windows and excellent insulation. The bathroom has in-floor heating; there is the option of a wood stove or a heat pump ensuring that you will be warm and cozy should you visit during the winter months.

If you let us know your arrival time in advance we will aim to have the fire roaring for your arrival.

Cuddle up on the sofa and watch your favourite series, documentary or a movie on Netflix.

We provide Nespresso coffee so you can start your morning off right!

Guest access
You may access all parts of the cottage except the loft area. The loft is maintained as a storage area.

Other things to note
For guests considering a visit to the Punakaiki/West Coast districts of New Zealand, we also offer accomodation at Welcome Bay Lodge (listed on Airbnb).

This is a much larger property that sleeps 6 that is located on absolute beach front.

Gibbston, Otago, New Zealand

Gibbston is designated as a 'character zone'. Essentially this means that the number of houses in the valley is restricted and that the vineyards are protected from development. This ensures that the region retains its distinctive character.

Gibbston has one one of the most incredible landscapes of New Zealand with stark, rugged scenery contrasted with rolling vineyards. The views as you drive through the gorge are magnificent - as are the biking and hiking trails along the river.

I am originally from Northern Ontario, Canada and have lived and worked in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Bali before emigrating with my wife Jo to New Zealand in 2014. Jo is originally from the Philippines and has worked in Qatar and Shanghai. I am a keen reader, mountain biker, aging ice hockey player and sometime skier. My wife and I are big adventure travelers and have visited over 50 countries. We have a passion for living in New Zealand, particularly the Gibbston area of Queenstown, that we'd like to share with all our guests.
