This place is brilliant, upon arrival from our long journey from fox glacier we were welcomed in by Joe and Maria to sit down and relax with a cup of fresh coffee and maria's home made cakes......mmmmmmmmmm i can still tast them now!!!. Both were very extremly friendly and helpfull and shared their wealth of information on queenstown and the surrounding areas with us to advise on things to do during our stay in queenstown. All of this whilst having the most spectacular veiw over looking the lake, remarcables and town.
They then showed us to our room which was very spacious and luxurious and also with balcony with amazing veiws.
the breakfast was terrific and maria and joe made the effort to sit down with us everyday and join us for breakfast, talking abotu tsnamis, olympics and any thing that was going on at the time, the conversation with Joe is never boring.
The house is massive and they have many different rooms depending on what you require, all of which are so well decked out. the place is also very cosy and clean.
Origionly we were only going to stay for 2 nights but in the end stayed for 4 It hink as the place was so good.
Walking to town is easy only 5-10 mins, walking back is a bit harder which we did a couple of times, but if your on your holiday you may aswell fork out 8 bucks for a taxi, which there are plently of in town.
When we next come back to queenstown we would def stay there again.
Joe and Maria thank you so much for making us feel welcome and making our stay in queenstown a great one.
By the way if your reading this joe and maria, we made it to the christchurch the same day although the drive through lindas pass was a bit hairy with all the snow. The worst part was driving down the hill from your place it was a bit slippy, next time we might have to get some chains!!!
Stay at this place its amazing and you won't be dissapointed!!!
