COUPLE’S RETREAT PROPERTY SUMMARY:
For a romantic getaway in beautiful Queenstown, this one-bedroom, lakeside apartment is spacious, with a stunning, rustic, Central Otago feel. The original schist walls of this home were built in the days of horse and cart – giving it a truly authentic, yesteryear charm.

ACCOMMODATION DETAILS:
Couple’s Retreat is a spacious apartment located under the main house of the property, in a beautiful lakeside location with access to all you could need during your Queenstown getaway. As you walk in through the front door and into the hallway, the laundry is on your left-hand side followed by your private bathroom. To your immediate left is the spacious, open plan living to enjoy during your stay. With a large dining table, 2 sumptuous couches, full kitchen facilities and a beautiful alfresco area, Couple’s Retreat will sweep you off your feet.

This property features a separate bedroom for added privacy, tastefully decorated, with a Queen-size bed and large floor-to-ceiling windows to capture the natural light.

Nestle down during those sunny afternoons in one of the many spots in the outside garden with a book, enjoy a glass of world-renowned Central Otago pinot as the sun sets, or dip your toes in your own little slice of Lake Wakatipu.

Couple’s Retreat is about 50 metres to the waterfront and famous Queenstown walking track – the Frankton Arm. Guests will have access to the property's own jetty and private dinghy; surprise your partner with a romantic boat ride out on the lake with that stunning alpine vista.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. We love how warm, spacious and peaceful it is… you feel right at home! The heating, carpet and thermal curtains keep the place warm on those chilly nights. We had our 9 month old infant with us so the added heating in the bedroom and bathroom were handy. Thanks for welcoming us as guests again :)

Allan is an absolute legend and very hospitable!!His place is in a lovely area close to queenstown but out of the tourist area. We had a great time there are breweries and cafes close by and a lovely little walking track. It is worth noting that there is no direct path to the walk way and water from the house, we had to go through the neighbours property to get there and they were very rude to us about it. Note that the bathroom is solely yours however is cold and separate to the bedroom and living area. Overall a pleasant experience thank you Allan!!

Fabulous location by the lake. Friendly informative host. The house was in pristine condition with great facilities and lovely garden . Unfortunately it backed onto a busy road and this may effect its suitability for some people.

Great place to stay, we stayed here while getting married and it was a fantastic place to get ready with great scenery and lighting to take some photos in. 20 second walk from the lakefront and a 5 minute walk away from the excellent boatshed cafe.

The view of the Remarkables is the highlight of this place. It is near a bus stop and there are a few cafes walking distance but having a car allows for easier access to supermarkets and attractions. There were no basic pantry staples. Check in was easy and simple.

Beautiful location on the lake. Well done architecture and design. Only drawback was the bathroom was outside the main room in the hall. Upstairs owner was very friendly but extremely quiet so we hardly knew he was there.

Everything was pristine and i would definitely stay here again. We were lucky enough to meet the owners who were absolutely lovely!! Highly recommended to all!!

An amazing space next to the lake with stunning views. A great position only a few minutes from the airport and just 6kms into Queenstown itself. An extensive shopping area next to the airport with large supermarkets to choose from. You can walk to local bars and restaurants, which is ideal. The accommodation is spacious and well equipped. Will definitely be back again. Thank you for an amazing stay.

This is a great find! Amazing place in a character building with views to die for. The separate although private bathroom is not ideal, however easily overlooked with all of the other pluses. Communication was fast & efficient and the hosts are genuine and lovely people. I had wonderful stay and hope to visit again. Thank you
