About this listing

Your private Queenstown apartment is a discreet, modern suite in a quiet, elevated position with dramatic, wall-to-wall views of the surrounding lakes and mountains and access to your own tennis court - we have racquets you can borrow free of charge ☺

The apartment can sleep up to 4 people, has fast, unlimited wifi and has it’s own exclusive off-street parking.

Also included in the room is a sofa, TV, fridge, kettle, toaster, a private en-suite bathroom and your own breakfast bar.

The space

We’re located right in the centre between Queenstown Central and Queenstown Airport which are both just 7 mins drive away, or a 9 min walk down to the bus stop where the bus runs ever 15 or so minutes (depending on time of day). You will also have very easy access to the Remarkables and Cardrona ski fields as the busses go past our area and stop at that bus stop.

The apartment is independent from the main house (we live upstairs) and is kept clean and comfortable and can sleep up to 4 people. It has fast, unlimited wifi, it’s own exclusive off-street parking for your vehicle and a large, modern living space.

Also included in the room is a sofa (which folds out into a bed), a TV with a “Freeview” box, a large fridge, kettle, toaster and private en-suite bathroom. A light, do-it-yourself continental-style breakfast bar comprising of muesli, bread, butter, marmalade, tea, coffee and milk is included.

Guest access

We have the availability of 24 hour check in to your studio apartment. Once the booking has been made you will receive directions and entry details.

You will have full access to the Queenstown suite, the private car parking space and the semi-private tennis court. If you would like to borrow the racquets just let us know, though we might challenge you to a game ;)

The room is equipped with a sofa, “freeview” TV, fridge, kettle, toaster, a private en-suite bathroom and your own breakfast bar.

Access to laundry is restricted as is in main part of the house. We’re happy to let you use the washing machine and or dryer provided you give us advanced warning. There is a $6 surcharge for each machine per use ($12/wash and dry).

As previously mentioned you will have your own private parking spot suitable for one car but should you require a second or are arriving in an oversized vehicle, there is on-street parking available just around the corner.

Interaction with guests

We love Airbnb guests are happy to welcome you into our home but we both work full time and sometimes we’re unavailable to welcome our guests.

Some guests prefer a lot of interaction and other enjoy total privacy – we respect both and go with the flow, but we’re always available if you need anything.

Other things to note

We have placed a complete guide to Queenstown and the surrounding area in your apartment. It lists our favourite restaurants, activities and secret local spots.

There are a couple steps so the apartment are not wheelchair friendly but it is on the ground floor and easily accessable apart from the steps.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Jodie's place. It's in a great location, and it is stylish and comfortable. The only downside was there was a lot of noise above us the first night, but it wasn't a problem our other two nights there. Overall, this was a lovely place to stay.

A great place to stay in Queenstown that offers lovely views and a convenient location to downtown.

Jodie was sick the entire extent of my four night stay so I never saw or met her. She was,however, very responsive to my few questions. The place is like having your own studio apartment in the hills above the city. It was very clean and the mini fridge was stocked with bread, butter, jam and bottles of water and milk. Tea, coffee and cereal were also provided. The bed is super comfy (especially with the electric blanket) and the water pressure is excellent. It's about a 45 minute walk into town, but if you're not inclined to hoof it I recommend downloading the Take Me app (NZ's version of Uber, but better) and utilizing that service rather than driving yourself. Finding parking can be difficult in QT, and the locals in the neighborhood tend to fly around the narrow streets and tight corners of the roads around Jodie's house. Better to let someone who knows the roads take you (and I am NOT a nervous driver).

Positives: Great view, private, easy flexible check in, good communication, lovely walk into town. Breakfast is a really nice addition with muesli, tea and coffee and toast with jam. Negatives: there is obviously an issue with damp and an air dehumidifier is provided to try and rectify this. However there is quite a strong odour of damp which we found unpleasant.

Perfect view with great parking, all together great room. lovely 45-60min walk to town but would always get a taxi home because of the hill ( $14ish ). Jodie was very responsive and helpful to my questions and checking in. The room is a little damp and need to use a dehumidifier all during the day, Room had a oder but nothing to bad. No kitchen sink, you just use the bathroom sink for dishes.

Hi there!

I am originally from the UK, but have been travelling the world for the last few years.
I arrived in Queenstown 9 years ago for a 6 month working holiday and fell in love with the town.
I have been a host on airbnb for 3 years whist living in Austrailia and Canada.
We recently bought this house and are looking forward to hosting many more guests.
