I found this place by accident browsing online. I have never been to a more interesting, artistic, enchanting place. Thomas, a Swiss Forrester artist, naturalist, builder, furniture maker and his wife, Christie, have created a paradise completely built by them. The gardens are full of 3000 rose bushess, magical pools and fountains, art sculptures, a whimsical ecological bathroom and a cottage with a bath., the main bathroom inside the house has an aquarium as a tank to remind us of our relationship with water. Everywhere you look in the house is something creative, made or designed by Thomas., from the sofas and chairs, dining tables with living plants, to the wall sculptures and art. Everything has a story and Thomas is a made who is one with the earth. You can stay in the main house one in the cottage with private bath, but the main house bedrooms are bigger and more interesting. Take bug spray as it is off the beaten path and the bites around the ankles walking outside can be vicious. Get the cooked breakfast. Best eggs ever straight from their chickens! If anyonegoes to Queenstown this magical hideaway is a MUST,
