We have previously stayed in Queenstown proper, but planned to have a couple of days having a serious look at the wineries of the Gibbston and Cromwell areas, on our way up to Christchurch. So we looked for something out of town. A perfect choice as it turned out. Jen and Dave have a beautiful house in a beautiful location where the outlook can only be described as stunning. There had been a light dusting of snow the night before we arrived and the mountains were just getting dressed. The second night was the first significant fall, about 4-6" and we awoke to a winterwonderland. The "house" is as stunning as the outlook, with central heating, underfloor heating in the beautiful ensuite, and huge rooms. We stayed in the Coronet Room, with views to Coronet Peak, and took advantage of Jen's offer to provide a dinner. We brought along some beautiful wines aquired during the day and shared the table with Jen & Dave for a beautiful warming meal of lamb shanks after soup and a wonderfully "unhealthy" blueberry something or other! with cream. Their knowledge of the area is excellent and recommendations for places to go and things to see were right on the mark. As the title suggests, you can only dream of a home like this, and the warm friendly welcome, by the hosts and their dogs was the icing on the cake. Thank you Jen & Dave for a wonderful stay. We WILL be back.
