“A fantastic spot to take in the beauty of Queenstown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Our Queenstown vacation was a present for my Dads 71st b’day, and the first time my parents had ever been in a plane, let alone o’seas. We wanted our accommodation to be ‘something special’ and Remarkable Vista ticked all the boxes.

LOCATION: Remarkable Vista is in the suburb of Aspen Grove, a 5 minute drive to the centre of Queenstown, and 15 minute drive to the airport.
The location (up a hill) provides a gorgeous view of the ever changing colours over The Remarkables.

ABOUT THE HOME: The home is self-contained, however your linen and towels are provided.
There was a great selection of tea and coffee, and basic items like sugar, pepper, spices etc.
We ate in a couple of nights and even had a BBQ (which is located on the deck), one of the most scenic BBQ settings we have ever experienced.
The dining area/sun room is beautiful, a very picturesque location to enjoy eating in.
In the lounge is a gas log fire heater, which was wonderful to have going each evening when the sun went down, it created a nice atmosphere in the living area.

The house is set over 3 levels which was perfect for us as we all had separate sleeping zones, and didn’t have to be with each other all day every day.
As the home is set over 3 levels you have sensational views from all rooms.

There is a huge outdoor spa, but we were so busy seeing all the sights of Queenstown we didn’t get a chance to use it.

The garage equipped with roller door, which has direct access to the house, meant that even if it was raining we were able to get out of the car under cover and go straight inside.

CLEANLINESS: The home was very clean and tastefully furnished.

TV/Wi-Fi: The TV was large and had a good selection of channels. Wi-Fi was complimentary which was an added bonus as we could plan trips and book activities from the comfort of the lounge.

BATHROOM/SHOWER: The bathroom and ensuite were a good size
We loved the floor heating and heated towel racks in the bathrooms.

SERVICE: The owner Shona was just lovely to book through. She was helpful with suggestions on places to eat, and day trips to do. Thanks to her we experienced the great local restaurant V-Knows, which is terrific for a delicious meal and great wine, and you can walk home!

OVERALL: We stayed at Remarkable Vista for 5 nights and wish it had been longer. We fell in love with Queenstown and all there is to see and do, and when we return will definitely stay at Remarkable Vista - if it hasn’t been booked out by everyone else finding this beautiful home.

“Amazing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Fabulous house on 3 levels with the most stunning views of the lake and Remarkable mountains. We stayed with friends, the bedrooms being on different levels gave both couples privacy and their own bathroom. There is a gas fireplace in the lounge which warmed the whole house. We didn't get to use the outdoor spa as it was a bit chilly for us queenslanders! There are plenty of utensils, cutlery and crockery, and a dishwasher if you wanted to self cater. The house is clean and comfortable with plenty of linen and towels.

I would recommend car hire, you could walk to town but it's all uphill on the way back and can get pretty cold at night.

There is free wi fi which was awesome for planning our day trips, checking weather and keeping in touch.

“A beautiful house with breathtaking views - this is it!”

people found this review helpful

The views in this house are amazing, waking up to the snow capped mountains and lake
and sipping coffee on the deck taking it in was wonderful. This house is modern, extremely clean and so very comfortable. I loved the décor, the luxurious beds, the warm towel rails, the fluffy towels, the heated bathroom floors - the list goes on. We adored the comfortable couches in front of the very toasty fireplace at the end of a ski day. The brand new 6 person heated spa on the deck with the view to die for nearly tipped us over the edge and made us want to stay forever. We are both ex travel agents and very fussy but this house ticks every box, it is rare for me to say I would go back to a place but I would in a heartbeat. We have 2 children and they loved it as well. A 3 storey place means you could, if you wish, share with another family if one family are willing the share the 3rd bedroom which has a King and fold out sofa. The owners are great to deal with. I can't recommend this place enough.

“This place is not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed for a week and did not want to go. The pictures do not do this house justice. The elevated views are amazing and the house had everything you would need. The pantry was stocked with goodies from previous renters, the beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need.
Best of all is the owners. There responses were always timely and very helpful.

The house is very neat and tidy and it was lovely to be able to sit outside and eat as the sun is going down under cover.
My friends mother had a wee accident and the owners and manger could not of been more helpful. We were so glad to be at the end of the day to be coming home to such a lovely house after the accident- it is a very warm and inviting house. 6 months on since that holiday and we are still talking about it and planning the next holiday to end our trip in this lovely house again and def for longer.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

people found this review helpful

We were a family of 5 and stayed at Remarkable Vista from 30 December 2012 until 6 January 2013.

We described it not as a holiday house, but as a holiday home. The pictures in the advertisement do not do justice to the house. It was impeccably clean throughout, and there were so many little things inside that made the stay special. We loved dinners cooked on the Weber BBQ (supplied), the surround sound stereo system was awesome, and the views from the house were just brilliant. The kids loved going in the spa bath especially when it was about 12 degrees outside.

I should point out that no expense has been spared inside, the Delonghi kitchen appliances, rice cooker, slow cooker, etc. Going out during the day and coming back to the home was a joy.

The communication with the owners before we went was excellent, and the refund of the bond was timely. The actually contacted me and asked for my details to refund the bond.

A fantastic place to stay - we loved it!
