We were fortunate to stay at The Canyons Lodge exclusively for 10 days at the the end of the Ski season Sept 28-7 Oct. We wanted a special place to celebrate mum's 60th birthday,which included my brother and his girlfriend, mum, me, my husband & our 2 teenage sons (13 & 15). We had been planning this for a while and had been looking at the website and the pictures for along time trying to imagine what our first visit to Queenstown would be like. I can only tell you that we were blown away when we pulled into the driveway of this breathtaking residence. The pictures on the website cannot do justice to this amazing property, you have to see it to believe it! Only a short drive from town, and yet you feel like you are a world away perched up high on a canyon with 360 degree views of pure unspoilt beauty. We could not believe we had this whole house to ourselves. The house is nice and clean, warm, and cosy and large enough that sometimes it takes a while to find each other after a long day. The rooms were spaced from one end of the house to the other giving each of us the privacy we needed. The hot tub in the garden was a welcome relief for the boys at the end of a big day snowboarding on Cardrona's slopes. The kitchen is huge and we loved the fact we could stock the house with our own food and cook meals before relaxing by the open fire each evening. The local supermarket is 5 mins away, and we were very fortunate to be offered the house Landrover (7 seater) for the week which allowed us the ease of popping in out of town at our leisure. The new owners Brent & Sarah are wonderful people who live close by, and are willing to offer help and suggestions at any time you need. Sarah is the most accommodating,genuine lady you will come across, she helped me plan our mothers surprise helicopter ride for her b'day and got us the best discount ever,and ensured everything was planned to finest detail, I would recommend booking things like this through Sarah as when I tried doing it from Australia it was so much more expensive (she's in the know). There was nothing that Sarah will not help you with, she just has that amazing nature,you feel like she's your friend and this is not something you generally get with holiday house owners or booking agents. We would definately stay at Canyons Lodge again, our teenagers are already asking us to book again for next year. I would definately go at that same time of year as we missed the ski season rush and it wasn't absolutely freezing, just very pleasant. Thank you Sarah & Brent for a memorable Queenstown holiday.
