What a great idea! I was about to spend a fortune on a hotel for my partner and I to go to Wellington for a wedding, but found a fantastic house swap opportunity on the site. Easy peasy. No problems...

About us

Member ID: 2619

We are a family of four, 2yr girl and 6yr boy from Queenstown. We love the lifestyle of Queenstown, the outdoors, the mountains and feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful place! We have just finished building our home, which we love. It is sunny and warm and open, with amazing flow and we just love living here!

Property description and facilities

Our new home is situated at Shotover Country, a very sunny spot with mountain views. The house has great indoor/outdoor flow to a lovely deck and lawn, is open plan with a central kitchen, which is great for entertaining with it's huge industrial oven. The house is beautifully sunny with lots of windows, with a gas fire and heat pump to keep cosy in the cold weather. The yard is fully fenced and very safe for children. There is a sandpit, slide and swings and a trampoline, and a deck and a hammock for the adults! The Queenstown Trail, a fantastic, incredibly scenic 100km network of trails is right across the road. Both the Remarkables and Coronet Peak ski areas are approx 25 minutes from our door. The Gibbston Valley wine area is only 10 minutes drive with its fantastic wineries and restaurants. Arrowtown is less than 10 minutes drive and downtown Queenstown only 15 minutes away.
