“Beautiful house and view”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Awesome house with great view. Great location with easy access to town and lake side.
Very much worth it and great cost performance. The kitchen was also great to use. It would be great if there was BBQ machine as it has a nice outside area downstairs with kitchen and dinning table.

This is definitely one of the best holiday houses we stayed.
We would love to come back again in the future.

“Beautifully outfitted and wonderful view - a great accommodation option in Queenstown”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

From the children to the 88 year old - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tahuna House. The house is cleverly outfitted, clean and comfortable - providing all that one needs to enjoy the stay; it has a magnificent view of the lake - and this breathtaking view catches your breath in the morning and when you return from a day of exploring. At this time of year, the sun sets at around 10pm, so sitting on the balcony or barbequing together were a welcome end to long days of exploring all that Queenstown and its surrounds had to offer. We based ourselves in the house for a week and travelled out on day trips to key sights or for exciting adventures. It is close enough to Queenstown to walk, and there is a walking path from the house into Queenstown / and you can take in the Botanic Gardens on the way. We found the Management of the House a delight to work with. They were extremely accommodating and even rang after our arrival to ensure that we had arrived safely and that everything was OK. I would highly recommend Tahuna House as a wonderful place from which to explore Queenstown.

“Modern, spotless, property with awesome views”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Stayed 3 nights in Feb 14 and was very impressed. We stayed in the upstairs part of the house which had the most magnificent views of the lake and mountains - floor to ceiling windows, and modern lounge and bathroom. Short walk into town. Highly recommended.

“"Just beautiful"”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our family of 8 stayed in Tahuna House in July 2013 and just loved it. The home was just lovely with magnificent views all around. Every thing we wanted was here and it was just great to come back to such a lovely warm house after spending time in beautiful Queenstown. From the lovely comfortable beds to the wood heater.....we couldn't fault it...please when you are in Queenstown stay at Tahuna House....you will be equally satisfied I am sure...

“Spacious house, great for holiday with extended family.”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Travelled with extended family, including toddler and school-aged children.
Excellent communication from property manager leading up to our stay.
Stunning views of Wakatipu and Remarkables!
Driveway was a little tricky to navigate due to sharpness of turn but ok once you know! Nothing to be done about that and many driveways on the lake side of Franton Rd are the same.
Arrived to a well-stocked fireplace which generously saw us through our stay.
Heating in the house was excellent, especially the under floor heating.
The two living areas were spacious with the kitchens well fit-out. Nice surprise was to find a few staples in the pantry upon arrival.
Beds fitted-out with electric blankets and were very cosy after a big day on the slopes.
Bathrooms have heated floors and towel racks, except for stand-alone toilet near garage which was quite chilly to use.
There was plenty of living space for our two families of 2+1 and 2+3.
Only negatives were that it is a bit of a hike to the private jetty, it is not fully paved and it is muddy after wet weather. Also the CD player in the upstairs living area would not work. Minor issues when compared to everything else the property offered.
About a 15 minute stroll into town which is pleasant but for the traffic on Frankton Rd which is quite busy.
For those travelling with young ones, please note there is an internal carpeted stair case and no fence for the fireplace. Our 1 year old wax fine but any littler would have been an issue.
We would happily stay here again. Tahuna House is a lovely holiday home and was very easy to live in.

“Great house and facilities, awesome views, simply the best.”
Reviewed 25 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had such an awesome time at the Tahuna house. We had a large group composed of 3 families with children. We arrived at night time and were instantly amazed by the house and its facilities, as well as the small touches that were added, like the fire place being fully ready to start (all we had to do was light the match!). When we got over our excitement for how great the house was, we went to sleep and woke up to jaw dropping views! The photos actually don't do it justice. The house is the perfect package. We enjoyed great weather during our stay, but even if the weather was bad, we wouldn't have minded staying in the house the whole time! Thank you Penny for being easy to deal with, and for providing us with such an enjoyable stay!
