Sunny home with magnificent views of the Remarkables & Queenstown basin. Historic Arrowtown is a quiet, quaint little haven away from the hustle/bustle of Queenstown, with an amazing range of cafés, restaurants, bars and a cinema. Short drive to Queenstown and ski resorts at Coronet Peak/Remarkables/Cardronna.

The space

Your room has its own entrance and contains a very comfortable queen size bed. The bedding is luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets and a down duvet. You have your own bathroom which has just been completely renovated.

You have access to the downstairs area - dining room/lounge and a large deck area which has the most amazing views.

I love a chat and to catch up. But I'm happy to leave you to yourselves if you prefer.

Arrowtown is a unique village with an interesting mix of historic cottages and the most up to date contemporary homes. Add to the mix the stunning historic churches, the Chinese Miners Village, the amazing walks and you will understand why Arrowtown is a hit with the many tourists who visit.

Shuttle buses run from Queenstown and the airport at Frankton (bus shelter).

I am happy to meet guests from the airport for a fee of $40. FYI a taxi will be approximately $80-100.

I loved staying at Margaret's place. The views are stunning, probably the best in Arrowtown. The sunny bedroom has a separate entrance from the main house and a really comfortable bed. The large bathroom across the hall is new and has been very prettily decorated by Margaret, who is a talented artist aswell as being a wonderful host. I enjoyed our chats over a delicious breakfast looking over the mountains...I was made to feel very much at home and nothing was too much trouble. The little centre of Arrowtown with its many shops, restaurants and cafes set in lovely historic buildings is five minutes walk away, as are numerous beautiful walking and cycling tracks along the river and beyond. You can even spend your days panning for gold!

The room is cosy and sweet, very comfortable and the views from the back are stunning. Everything is as described. Lovely breakfast and friendly conversation provided by Margaret, as well as advice on the local area. Location is perfect for both Queenstown and lake Wanaka. Arrowtown itself was a lovely surprise - quaint historic town with good dining options.

The room is very small and not suitable for two travelers. Views are lovely but if you want breakfast make sure to specify that in advance.

Margaret is such a great host! I feel so very welcomed as a guest! Upon arrival she offered me some tea and we sat down and had a chitchat. She also offer me a breakfast for the next morning as well but I got so much left-over. She gave me a tip on which better route to take to my destination. Her house is very tidy and clean! The bedroom I stayed got the most comfortable bed. I felt like home! Thank you Margaret. The location of Margaret's place is very convenience only 5 mins walk to town center and 20 mins drive to Queenstown. The town center surprisingly got a very good Thai restaurant! I will come back here again!! Thank you Margaret!

I am a friendly and outgoing person. I have only been living permanently in Arrowtown for six months after retiring from the jewellery industry after losing my business in the Christchurch Earthquake. However my family built a holiday house in Arrowtown approximately 40 years ago so I know the area very well. Lots of wonderful family holidays have been shared in this special part of NZ. Everyday I cherish the ever changing views from my home. I have travelled extensively with my business and I lived in Tokyo for five years. I enjoy entertaining and it is great to now have the time to prepare and share fine food with my family and friends. My home and surroundings are important to me and I am looking forward to sharing my special space with my guests.
