Make this your base camp for exploring the Queenstown area. Close to the Remarkables ski field , excellent fishing in the lake and rivers. Kingston where scenery meets serenity. Situated at the southern end of Lake Wakitipu. Relax and unwind in this beautiful place surrounded by mountains, a short stroll to the lake shore.
We are only 30 minutes from Frankton Airport and the Remarkables ski field, 40 minutes from Queenstown and an hour and a half to Te Anau on Route 6. But why not stay a while and explore the local area and all it has to offer.
Our lovely little base camp has an open plan living, dining and kitchen space with the basics to make a good meal and relax a couple hundred meters from the lake. There's a spacious bedroom with a sumptuous queen bed and large ensuite bathroom. The space is well designed and comfortable with a beautiful wood burner to keep you toasty in winter.
There's parking just outside your space with a easy access to the apartment. Tea and coffee making facilities, light food preparation area, free view TV, free wireless internet and the best of both worlds with a log burner and heat pump.
We love living in Kingston and are busy establishing a native garden which you are welcome to share and enjoy. There is a guest seating area with great views of the surrounding mountains.
