it was a bit difficult to get to call them directly but they reply you very quickly through the Airbnb app. The rooms and the facilities were absolutely amazing. it's just a five minute walk to the city and very close to the Nadi yoga center (definitely worth a visit if you're a yogi) the garden is beautiful and my family had a very good time in this lovely place. A remark worth making is that I took a hot bath (water ran for 5 minutes) and no more hot water! My family had to wait a while before taking a shower. But besides that, everything was very clean and tidy and pretty awesome especially the fire pit in the living room.

Rather than a review, I'd like to send a thank you letter to the owners of this amazing home. That you not only maintain this welcoming and cozy historic home but share it with others is such a gift. everything about it was lovely. what I'll remember most was enjoying our family meals and watching the sunset with that postcard view. We will always remember our time there. Thank you so much

The listing was very accurate and Jenny was most accommodating. Staying at Stonehill Cottage was a delightful way to begin our NZ adventure. We thoroughly enjoyed Queenstown and all she had to offer.

The Stonehill Cottage was exactly as described and what we were after. It had a very comfortable, homely feel with plenty of privacy and the view from the kitchen was second to none. The wood fire was a nice touch as well.
