Interaction with guests
I'm available to meet you on your arrival. I live in Glenorchy 6km from the house and am available anytime to help with your needs while giving guests 100% privacy to enjoy their stay. Late checkout available depending on other bookings.
Situated on a large 5 acre block with friendly neighbours but being a rural environment it is very quiet.
Guests will need their own means of transport as there is no public transport in this area. Car rentals mainly at Queenstown airport with some located in Queenstown CBD.
Other things to note
Glenorchy is a beautiful little lakeside town with several great cafes. It is the gateway to some of New Zealand's best walks, such as the Routeburn, Greenstone, Caples. Top 5 activities in Glenorchy - Dart River Jet, visit Paradise and Kinloch, great local cafes and Dumplings from Queenies, helicopter trips with Heli Glenorchy and sky diving. Feel free to ask for any activity suggestions.
Strictly no smoking in the house. Otherwise all we ask of our guests is that they respect our new house, take care of it and love it as we do.

We have been living in Glenorchy for just over 10 years but holidaying here for around 20 years prior to that. We love it here - the easy access to the mountains enables us to lead a relatively healthy life. We always start the day with a coffee and read the paper before we get going and if we're not doing anything we spend Saturday night at the Cafe eating pizza. There is everything here that we need, the people are great and our cats love it!
