Places to stay in Saint Bathans
A beautiful fully self contained 2 bedroom holiday home in the charming historic village of St Bathans, Central Otago. Built using the traditional method of mud brick with 2 bedrooms (double beds) and a sofa in the lounge that converts to a double bed. A warm and cosy little home with all modern amenities. Ideal for Rail trail riders, families, or a quiet romantic get away from the maddening crowds.
We have created a beautifully appointed cosy cottage to escape the rigours of city life and in keeping with the historical location we used the traditional construction of mud bricks giving the place a vintage look but with all modern amenities inside. The cottage is warm and cosy in the winter and cool in the summer.
St Bathans is in a New Zealand registered Heritage area. The village was once a bustling gold mining town and the Blue Lake was formed when the gold mining ceased. There are many old ruins and interesting historical features that make this little place fascinating. The lake is lovely to swim in during the summer, ideal for kayaking or paddle boarding, and the Otago Rail Trail is nearby. Bicycles can be hired in Omakau (30 minutes away) if you want to ride the trail. the local hotel is the very beautiful Vulcan Hotel which has a bar and restaurant (bookings essential). There is a well appointed little supermarket in Omakau for supplies. The nearest large towns are Ranfurly and Alexandra, and many smaller villages such as Naseby, Oturehua, Opha, Omakau, and Clyde to explore. Queenstown is just 1.5 hours away by car.
  • What a little treasure! Beautifully cosy house, the fire is amazing - you'll not be cold. Private & quiet, this is the ideal spot to shut out the world and hunker down with a good book. I'd definitely like to return at some point.

  • We had a great stay at Alison’s cottage. It was clean and comfortable.

    Hilary2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great space to stay in at St Bathans; quiet, well appointed and with a wonderful view from the bedroom windows. Alison was great to deal with and we had no problems at all. The ability to walk from the cottage to the lake and the hotel was a bonus.

    Julia2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I would totally recommend the Old Orchard Cottage. From its charming ambience and attention to detail to the inspiring environment of St Bathans, the cottage is ideally positioned to help you step out of the rat race. I had a fantastic time.

    Caroline2019-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at the cottage. It was perfect for us for the night. St Bathans is a very cute township and well worth the visit!

    David2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is an extra special house in a great locality. Wonderful local walks, full of history. We self-catered (which was important as the only amenity at St Bathans is the wonderful old hotel). A great base to explore other areas including some mountain biking at Naseby and parts of the rail trail. A wonderful photo album at the house which shows it's construction from adobe bricks.

  • Lorna and David were fantastic hosts and gave us great recommendations for places to go. Recommend you come with whatever food and drinks you need, it is quite a drive to the nearest shops (as Lorna and David do point out in the description). To be clear though this in no way detracted from our stay and we had a very relaxing weekend looking out at amazing views. We 100% recommend them. Thanks again!

    Lauder, Otago, New Zealand

    A cabin on a hillside made of gold in historic Bendigo, the best-kept secret in Central Otago. Surrounded by vineyards on a rustic landscape steeped in gold mining history. We're 30 minutes from Wanaka, 50 from Queenstown airport, at the heart of everything that makes Central Otago so beautiful and unique. There's much to explore from walks to wineries. Pour yourself a glass of vino, soak in the outdoor tub and be awed by the panoramic views and the starry night sky, you'll never want to leave.
    The cabin sleeps two guests comfortably in a Queen bed, with a full en-suite, kitchenette, wood burner and modern furnishings. The cabin has sliding doors that open out onto your decks that look over the panoramic surrounding views. On the bottom deck there is a sunken outdoor bath for you to soak all your worries away in. The night sky is something wonderful to behold here away from light pollution and if you're lucky you may even glimpse the magical Southern Lights in all their glory. The cabin is architecturally designed to have a small environmental footprint and sit in harmony with the natural landscape. It is perched high on a rocky outcrop at the foothills of the Dunstan Ranges, overlooking the expansive Clutha Basin with its pastoral scenes and enclosed on all sides by dramatic alpine mountain ranges. Your only neighbours are the surrounding vineyards in their ever-changing colours and the resident birdlife. Step inside and you will have all the comforts to help you forget your worries and slip into relaxation mode. The cabin is furnished to a high quality and all essentials are provided for. We are just a phone call away should you have any special requirements. A small kitchenette is provided for basic cold food preparation. It is not permitted to cook in the cabin for the comfort of all guests. You will find a toaster and kettle and a light breakfast, tea, and coffee are provided on arrival. We encourage guests to try one of the local restaurants for lunch or dinner - you will find a curated selection of our favourite spots in the cabins guidebook to help you to choose! There is a general store and cafe in Tarras 10mins away and a supermarket 15mins away in Cromwell for supplies also.
    Bendigo is located at the top of Lake Dunstan, in the heart of Central Otago... We are in the middle of nowhere and at the centre of everything! The area has a rich history of pioneer gold mining and merino farming and is best known today as one of the finest Pinot Noir producing regions in the Central Otago. The site is scattered with windswept Kanuka and ancient rock formations that lend the landscape a unique raw beauty. You will probably not want to leave the cabin, but if you do, Bendigo has a variety of activities for everyone. From scenic walks through the vineyards and hills straight from your cabin doorstep to the fascinating mining ruins of Bendigo a short 5 min drive down the road as well as beautiful swimming and fishing spots of the Clutha River and Lake Dunstan a stone's throw. The Tarras Golf Club is a must for anyone keen to try their hand at golf at its most chilled out-think sheep on the fairways! Bendigo also serves as a great base to explore everything else Central Otago has to offer. Want to get out for an hour or two? 15 minutes away in Cromwell, the Cromwell Old Town Area is a lovely spot to grab a coffee and check out the local art scene at small galleries there. It also plays host to an artisan food and craft market most weekends where you can try all the amazing local produce. Cromwell is the stone fruit mecca of New Zealand and if you are lucky enough to be here during the right season you may end up with a Cherry addiction! 5 minutes further down the road is Bannockburn, a striking wine region where you can indulge in an afternoon of wine tasting at a number of great wineries. For a half-day trip we suggest driving through the shear sided Dunstan Gorge to reach the small historic town of Clyde that has an impressive dam, a boutique cinema, and a selection of shops and restaurants. You can hire a bike and cycle part of the world-famous Central Otago Rail Trail as it follows the Clutha river toward Alexandra. If you carry on past Clyde toward the Manuherikia Valley you will be greeted with wide open landscapes, made famous by the New Zealand Landscape painter Graham Sydney. The area is has a number of traditional small-town pubs where you can stop for a meal and a handle and get a chance to meet some proper southern folk. For the adventurous (and 4WD capable) the Thompson's Gorge Track will bring you back over the Dunstan Range directly to Bendigo (via a bumpy high country track!) Further afield - a full day outing can get you anywhere from a hot spring in Tekapo, a bush walk at Mt Cook National Park or skiing in Wanaka or Queenstown. The options are endless!
  • Amazing!!! A little piece of paradise. Great views, amazing stargazing in the hot tub at night. Just perfect!!

    Iris2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place to stay. Quiet, secluded and unique. In the hills beside vineyards.A very special place.

    Liz2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • 2nd time we have been there and it did not disappoint. The perfect relaxation and little get away. We used the bath loads and loved waking up In the clouds! Definitely worth booking 3 months in advance.

    Jake2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the Dunstan cabin was spectacularly dreamy. The cabin itself was modern, stylish and cosy. Particularly enjoyed waking up to coffee in bed overlooking the Bendigo wine region. The black craggy hills captivated us for hours and the outdoor tub overlooking it all was simply an amazing touch! We can’t wait to come back! Lauren & Matt

    Lauren2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cosy cabin in a stunning spot. Highly recommend for a relaxing getaway 👍🏼

    A warm and cosy strawbale home built of natural materials, located in the middle of the rail trail. Beautiful outlook to the mountains and countryside. A few minutes walk to the village centre with store and hotel.
    Natural features of stone fireplace, earth and lime plastered walls and timber beams. An author's residence, The Strawbale house has a warm cosy interior, filled with books, NZ Art and retro treasures.
    Big open sky, mountains and rocky tors. Historic pub and general store a 5 minute walk down the road. Hayes Engineering museum, a 2min drive or 15min walk or 5min cycle. Oturehua is located half way on the Otago Rail Trail and is a perfect spot to situate yourself to explore the Central Otago area. The most interesting portion of the Rail Trail is located between Oturehua and Omakau. If you are not doing the whole Rail Trail, perhaps consider doing a day cycle trip and explore the historic rail tunnels and bridges. A cycle hire and pick up service can be arranged at an additional cost.
  • This place is simply amazing. Full of character, quirky, warm and welcoming - just unique. You will not want to leave - we wished we had allowed much more time to enjoy this enchanting little paradise.

    David2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • My favourite house stay. Very cosy home with very comfortable living space with lovely views. Home made bread and fresh eggs, a bath with a view and wonderful art on the walls and scattered about the place. Also piano, which is great when one of your group plays well! It made me want to build my own house made of straw.......

    Jean2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Jillian had all the qualities and more that we as guests and hosts ourselves look for when we book Airbnb. She was above and beyond helpful, interesting, friendly and just plain amazing. This is a place you won't come across every day and we were sorry to leave. We recommend this special piece of paradise to all travellers interested in art, literature, rural ambience and a taste of alternative lifestyle. Perfect.

    Leslie&Phil2019-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is magic. Loved it.very organic and super comfy beds

    Meadow2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our family had a wonderful stay at Jillian’s strawbale house. The space is full of character with amazing artworks and books, the most tranquil bath ever (make sure you time your soak with the sunset - bliss) and all of the bits and pieces you could possibly need. The setting is incredibly peaceful and homey, which made for such a relaxing couple of days - sorely needed after a relatively rough year! Jillian was really hospitable and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed/wanted. She had great tips for us to explore the area and was really accommodating, going out of her way to organise things like a portacot for us. There are a couple of great little walks nearby if you are hanging around for a bit, including one on the opposite side of the creek bordering the house. The publican at the Railway Hotel a short walk down the road is incredibly friendly, the food is delicious and good value too. Oturehua is a fab base for exploring the Maniototo; villages like Saint Bathans, Naseby, and Ophir (home to Pitches - possibly one of the best cafes I’ve been to in NZ) are within 20/30 minutes by car, while the wineries of the Cromwell/Alex/Bannockburn area are just a wee bit further. We felt really privileged to have stayed in a house made with so much thought and care, and I am especially jealous of Jillian’s writing hut! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Thanks so much, Jillian.

    Alana2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful experience, in a great part of New Zealand. A must is to read about the build in Jillian’s book (at the house). A special place.

    Amanda2019-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Small town and unique eclectic house. Very welcoming. Good pub just up the street. Amazing views from the balcony and nice wood fired stove to keep the house warm on cold nights.

    Robert2018-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Jillian's house is ideally located for riding the Rail Trail. Her house accommodated our group of five with ease. We were so appreciated the wonderful fire, and the drying rack for our wet clothes, and cold bodies. The beds were super comfy, and we all slept well. We enjoyed a pleasant meal at the Oturehua pub, a short walk down the road, and Jillian left us plenty of provisions for breakfast. This is not a 5 star hotel - Jillian's home is a space for curling up with a good book, and relaxing.

    Our newly built cottage is situated on a stunning 12 acre block just 15 minutes drive from Wanaka. The cottage is just a 4 minute walk to the Clutha River which is well worth checking out and perfect for a picnic. Fully self contained with a brand new 4 burner bbq, bathroom, kitchen (sink, hob, kettle, fridge, microwave) wifi and a super comfy queen bed.

    Tarras, Otago, New Zealand

    Country cottage set on 10 acres with direct access onto Otago Central Rail Trail. Perfect for a weekend getaway, family holiday, biking the rail trail or just chilling out. She's not historic or luxurious but she is clean and comfortable and the views from the deck across farmland to the Hawkdun Range are just great. Nearby Lauder village offers a great coffee stop at Stationside Cafe and the evening meals at the Lauder Hotel are legendary (but you must book ahead). Twin room can be super King
    Brookside Cottage is the perfect place to base yourself to explore the Manuherikia, St Bathans and Maniototo areas and with Queenstown and Wanaka within a 90 minute drive a day on the ski slopes is an option.
    The thing that makes Lauder so special is it's country feel. The locals are welcoming, approachable and ready to share their local knowledge with you.

    Located on the plains of the Maniototo and with access to the Otago Rail Trail, our house is an historic farmstead, built in the 1880s. We have lovingly refurbished the house, retaining the character of its past while incorporating the needs of the modern age. This listing is for our spacious 'Whero Room' with private ensuite. Please check out our other listing 'Taradale Homestead - Kākāriki Room' if you need the additional room. It, too, has two beds and access nearby to a private bathroom.
    The Whero Room is furbished with two very comfortable king single beds and has a large private ensuite. You'll also enjoy cozy electric blankets, TV (freeview and Netflix channels) and expansive views of the beautiful Ida Valley from every window. Northwest facing, the room gets maximum sun. The bedroom leads on to a sun porch and outdoor area with table, chairs and sun umbrella.
    Big skies (perfect for stargazing), beautiful mountain ranges, and 360-degree views. Not another house in sight. Oturehua village is a 10-minute drive away. 15 minutes to Ophir and Omakau 30mins to Alexandra 1.5 hours to Queenstown 2 hours to Dunedin
  • We loved Tarradale Homestead. The scenery getting to and around it is spectacular. It’s calm and peaceful there, yet there’s still things to see and do in the area. Paula and Steve were superb hosts. Every little detail was taken care of - tea, coffee, bikkies, cold water by the entrance to the bedroom. Our own space to sit out on the terrace in the sunshine. An extraordinary big bathroom with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, huge huggy bath towels. And very comfy beds. Their knowledge of the area was extensive and their love of living there evident. They shared their knowledge willingly. Each day they provided an appetising breakfast which we loved. And we paid to have an evening meal prepared by them on the first night. It was homemade, delicious and amazing value. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tarradale to others. And if we return to the area, we would stay there again. Paula and Steve made a big contribution to our wonderful stay in Central Otago.

    Michael2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a rare and precious thing when Life conspires to provide exactly the circumstances required to move ahead with a project or a plan, and especially so when it delivers unexpected connections. Our stay at Taradale Homestead was designed around a personal pilgrimage to ancestral ground in the Ida Valley. Not only was the accommodation perfectly located and comfortable, Paula and Steve offered more than exceptional hospitality; they cheerfully went out of their way to help us locate places we wished to visit and introduce us to local contacts keen to share information. It was a wonderful visit, and it was fun. Thank you Paula and Steve.

    Miriam Louisa2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Paula and Steve are lovely hosts and we had a wonderful stay. The room has windows on three sides and gives awesome views of the Ida Valley. You can even have a view of the beautiful nightsky from the bed. The breakfast was great. Four cute cats roam the house. We definitely recommend staying here!

  • An outstanding example of old-fashioned country hospitality in a rather old-fashioned part of New Zealand. You stay in a 1950s-style guest bedroom with ensuite, glazed all around with windows that give a 270-degree view of the countryside. The homestead is lined with books. Friendly host Paula comes from a literary background, knows everything about the locality and gave us a few tips about places to visit, along with service over and above the usual Airbnb. NB the place can be a little hard to find at dusk (lettering on the gateposts is in red and the house is set back from the road, though visible.)

  • Really nice room with everything you need and a little bit more. Lovely hosts and amazing hospitality. We wish we could've stayed longer.

    This is not suburbia. Are you looking for a place to get away? Do want to be amazed by starry skies? Can you imagine waking up in the morning and opening the curtains to a stunning mountain vista. If you are getting tired of the bombardment of noise in the city, you will be astonished at the silence we offer.
    Warm and cozy, this self contained unit has all the amenities you need to enjoy the stay you want. You can laze in the lounge or kickback in the kitchen. Our place is a great place to unwind.
    Breath in the fresh mountain air. Take in the tranquility that a rural setting has to offer. Did I mention the sunrises? Ok I did :-) Stars, not the Hollywood variety, but on a clear night you can marvel at the beauty above.
  • Craig and Jenelle’s place is lovely and peaceful, beautiful views and lots of animals around. The cottage itself is very homely and warm, and has all amenities for a comfortable stay. (A mirror in the bathroom would be an asset though) A great place to really get away from it all - chill out and relax - for a few nights. Craig and Jenelle are great hosts, very hospitable. We’d definitely stay here again.

    Christine And David2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Craig and Jenelle’s place is wonderful. It is off the beaten track, but easy to find and absolutely lovely. The views are stunning and Craig and Janelle make fabulous hosts. We’d never fed alpacas before but we have now. Our only regret was not having booked to stay longer! I would have no hesitation in returning.

    Janet2020-03-18T00:00:00Z

    Ping2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re staying here, it may be a little tricky finding it at the beginning. Just remember the small sign in front of the gate and look for the actual green cottage. Also, you’ll have to let yourself in by opening the entrance gate. Once in, the AirBnB is great!

    Reynald2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation. Loved the views, the animals and the sky at night. Our children enjoyed the trampoline and loved to feed the animals with Craig

    Our guest accommodation is a good sized double bedroom with a new Queen sized bed. The large windows in the room provide a wonderful view out to the surrounding countryside and the star filled night sky. Breakfast items provided include bread for toast, jams / conserves, muesli / cereal, yogurt and our farm fresh eggs. All amenities in our home are shared
    Located on over 15ha, we finished building our home at the end of 2016. As a panelised building, it's fairly unique for this area. Architecturally designed, it blends into the surrounding environment. The interior is lined with a beautiful ply which is light and modern. We enjoy welcoming guests to share our home with us. We have a herd of around 40 adult goats - some of which have been hand raised and enjoy welcoming our guests if it means that they will get a scratch and potentially a treat :-). Seasonally we also have the goat kids that we breed.
    Our nearest neighbour is approximately 400 metres away and as there is very little light pollution in our area, it is an ideal spot for star gazing (or spotting satellites as they fly over). Alexandra township is approximately a 10-15 minute drive from our property as is the beautiful historical Clyde.
  • Angela and her daughter Maria were great hosts and her home is so lovely, I’d highly recommend! The place is absolutely beautiful and there was a feast for breakfast each morning. Her dogs coco and kyro are such sweethearts too! Definitely not to be missed :)

Unlike long drops and chemical toilets it does not smell and there are no pesky flies buzzing about. It was warm and cost in the garlic tent. Wanda booked us in to the local pub for dinner where we had a good / huge meal with local wine.

  • When my partner told me we were staying in a converted truck that slept 8 people, I thought it was going to be terrible. Yet, I was pleasantly surprised and really thankful we chose to stay there. The place was completely contained, had everything you might have needed, wonderful areas to sit outside and hang out, and was down the road from an amazing restaurant (book ahead!). We were greeted the next morning with breakfast and a smile and both owners were more than friendly, accommodating and helpful. I loved this place and I hope we can go back there with friends sometime in the future. Thank you again! Anne and Sebastiaan

  • Nikki was a lovely and hospitable host. The cottage was very comfortable and cozy and there were some wonderful touches. Ophir is a beautiful area and I would certainly recommend Nikki’s place to others.

    Since the 1920s the Poolburn Hotel has been the meeting place of the Ida Valley. Nestled in the remote highlands of Central Otago, between Dunedin and the Lakes District, the valley is an adventure mecca. No longer a pub, we now offer lodging and guided activities to adventurers from afar. You'll relax in a recently renovated room, with ensuite. Please send a message if you have any special requirements or are interested in some activities.
    What adventures are on offer? Some of our favourites include: Biking the Poolburn Gorge Tunnels & Viaduct, the highlight of the iconic Rail Trail. Fishing in the Poolburn Reservoir with a picnic lunch (possibly) including freshly caught Koura crayfish. Mountain bike shuttles on the downhill tracks above the historic township of Clyde. Cross country mountain biking in the rocky terrain of Alexandra or pine forests of Naseby. Horse riding in the valley, made famous by the Riders of Rohan from The Lord of The Rings movies. Standup paddleboarding on the beautiful Blue Lake at St Bathans. Winery tour of the vineyards around Alexandra, home to some classic Central Otago Pinot Noirs.
    The pub is surrounded by farmland. The dirt road to the Poolburn Reservoir is bumpy but accessible to 2WD vehicles except in winter.
  • Cool place for biking and trips to Queentown etc. Wifi works fine on the whole terrain and the lawn and the hammock are already now perfect for a relaxing afternoon in the sun. Sara the chef is a fab cook - make sure you eat there!

    Martin2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay with Mark and Matt! They are very friendly, amazing hospitality. Check out Muddy Creek Cafe in Omakau, probably the best pies I've ever had

    Valerie2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Matt were the best! Nothing but good things to say about the pub. Mark is a great cook and they made me feel right at home. Lots of things to do in the area and they gave me some good places to see on the rest of my trip. The place is going to look so nice when all the renovations are done! Highly recommend!

    Kerribeth2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Matt are great hosts! The accomodation is really comfortable and quiet, the food is great and both of the hosts are good company. They took me out cray fishing and we enjoyed having them for dinner later on. This is a great spot where you can be comfortable kicking back and relaxing, or getting out and exploring the area. Highly recommended.

    Derek2019-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mark is a great host, and the old Poolburn Pub is already a cool venue, but will be an amazing place to stay when its all finished

    Dave & Asuma2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Mark's place was so different than anywhere we've stayed, we had such a great time! Mark offers the option to get dinner/breakfast and has drinks available for purchase as well, and it was so worth it. Everything was so fresh and yummy, it just added to the overall experience at this unique space! Mark was super hospitable and really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome!

    Brittnee2019-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is easily the coolest spot I’ve stayed in New Zealand! It’s a restored/repurposed pub that serves as an authentic, outdoory Airbnb. Mark is an amazing host and goes out of his way to make sure people have a great time. I had the best sleep of my life here. The dogs are incredibly fun and friendly. The breakfast is amazing. You really feel like you’re part of the family. I 110% recommend staying here, it will be one of your favorite experiences in NZ. Thanks Mark!

    Robert Jenkins and his family lived in the tiny cottage and cooked in their stone lean-to kitchen. Jenkins worked as a blacksmith across the yard next to the stables. This cottage and its outbuildings, dating probably from the 1870s or early 1880s gives a real sense of the life in nineteenth century Ophir in its years as a gold mining town and rural service centre. Nowadays, Ophir has a population of only 50 and New Zealand's second-lowest official temperature of -21.6 °C was recorded at Ophir on 3 July 1995, even though it is not located at a high elevation. As a general attractions, Ophir it's right in the middle of the Otago Central Rail trail which makes a perfect spot for cyclist but also, it has an important historical relevance and many beautiful landscapes.

The place is full of character, with many many different entertaining areas. It would be great to stay in all seasons. A must is the Blacks Hotel, full of character and very welcoming. Definitely a must stay if you are passing through real Central Otago.

I got every help and advice I needed, and spent a lovely evening together with this New Zealand couple. You should see the house inside, it is so cozy and has so many little beautiful details, like a guest book with records from 1979! I highly recommend Lynley as a host -- you won't regret it.

    Queensberry Ridge View, near Wanaka, is the perfect spot to rest, star-gaze and enjoy 360-degree mountain views. It’s a convenient base to explore the West Coast, Queenstown, Mt Cook and Tekapo. It is close to Wanaka Airport where you can skydive or fly a plane. Soak in our hot tub under starry skies. Our home is modern and spacious. Note: a 2-night minimum stay applies at Easter 2020 for Warbirds over Wanaka. April 11th and 12th are still available. Enjoy the aerial action from the couch!
    Our property is in a special location, with sweeping views of the Grand View Mountains and the Dunstan Range. Queensberry has big skies with lots of stars visible on clear nights (due to low light pollution), so days often begin and end with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The property feels far removed from the bustling crowds, yet is only a 20 minutes' drive from Wanaka, 15 minutes from the Wanaka Airport, 25 minutes from Cromwell and just over an hour from Queenstown. The Mountain Views studio room, with basic amenities, a modern ensuite and separate entrance, has everything guests need for an independent stay. It has a peaceful, homely vibe, which makes it an ideal place in which to relax and unwind. Guests can park their car directly outside the room for ease of transferring their gear. We also have an upstairs room (with a balcony) of our large home listed with Airbnb, under “Mountain Views balcony room, near Wanaka Airport”. Both rooms have mountain views and rural outlooks.
    Queensberry is a relaxed rural area, close to vineyards for wine tasting, orchards for cherries and apricots, cycle trails, popular ski fields (an hour away) and Wanaka airport, where you can fly a plane or take a skydive. Historically, Queensberry was a rest stop between the centres of Cromwell and Wanaka, and still is.
  • My wife and I stayed two nights at Yvonne and Neill's. We had a fantastic and relaxing stay, with lovely views over the valley and Clutha river. We would definitely stay again.

    Emmanuel2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Just like their big and beautiful farm and home, they have a big and beautiful heart too. We felt like we were staying with our own family, wish our stay here was longer. Yvonne and Neill are a lovely couple, very friendly, warm and hospitable. They showed us around their farm, we went for a walk with them, the 4 lovely dogs in their care and their lovely pony Zuri. Also said hello to the 2 horses in the neighbouring farm. We enjoyed every moment of playing with the amazing pets. Yvonne and Neill welcomed us to use most of the amenities in their home and we had a lot of chit chat and funny conversations during our short stay. The accommodation was spotless clean, everything we needed was available, separate entry, even a outside spa at our disposal. We slept watching the stars as you can see many due to less light pollution and woke up with sunrays falling on our face. What a beautiful view from the room. My wife wants to visit New Zealand again just to stay here once more with Yvonne and Neill. This was so far our best Airbnb stays ever.

    Anmol2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The view is lovely, kitchen is fully equipped, there are heater and heat tracing blanket in the room, and Yvonne and Neil are very nice, happy person. Lots of indoors and outdoor seats with beautiful view. My wife English is little, so she asked me to make sure to express her gratitude for the nice stay.

  • Yvonne and Neill are fantastic hosts, and happily share the entire house with their guests, which means you get to enjoy lots of space in addition to extraordinary 360° views. A dip in the outdoor hot tub is an absolute must. On a side note, a great place to stay for dog lovers !

    Eleanor2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Ravnit2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing! There is a large farm where you can go for a walk with the lovely ponies and a group of puppies. It’s really the perfect spot to rest, star-gaze and enjoy 360-degree mountain views. At night we can soak in the outdoor hot tub, seeing milky way and tons of stars. There is no light pollution nearby .They are very good hosts. They are very warm to us, and they even bought us beer. We cooked dinner in their kitchen, the hostess offered us anything we needed, and finally offered to wash the dishes and let us rest. Thank you so much! The next morning also prepared a rich breakfast for us! We have no choice but to arrange the schedule, otherwise we really don't want to leave! I will stay here again next time, enjoy it!

    View of the hills can be seen from the bedroom window, house is adequately heated for winter and cool in summer. Plenty of living area, porch for summer, modern kitchen, plenty of hot water as we have a wet back system. Plenty of area for parking and a back lawn and flower gardens make the home attractive. A five to ten minute walk to Clyde’s amenities, movie theatre, restaurants, bowling green, tennis courts, golf course. A nice walk down to the Clutha river. Museum & hydro dam, interesting.
    The guests can use all of my home and their bedroom. There are areas outside to enjoy the fresh air and peacefulness of Clyde.
    We have a walkway where people can walk in a park like surroundings instead of walking along the street. This is where the Central Rail Trail is and was the route of the old railway line. If you keep walking to the town centre you will pass the the old railways station and then head to the shops or restaurants. If you go the other way towards Alexandra you can walk to the underpass and see the mural one of the local artists is painting to depict the life of the rail trail. If you are really keen you can walk into Alexandra and then after spending time there, you can cross the bridge over the Clutha river to the Earnscleugh side and walk back to Clyde. A quick trip would be three hours.
  • Top host. Everything was really tidy and Catherine is a great person with a big heart and a big hospitality. Clyde is a small but really nice little town. You can get good café and food in Clyde. We really recommend this spot.

    Lukas2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • A great room and lots of interaction with the owner if you want. From Clyde you can cycle well over a former railway line. The river trail is a good alternative to get on the rail trail in Alexander. Well worth the effort. Rent bikes at the old station in Clyde

  • When a place has already so many great reviews, it's difficult to think that they can exceed your expectations, but Kathy's place certainly did!! Not only is the house super cozy and comfortably arranged, Kathy is the most lovely host one can ask for! You'll love her homemade bread and her fantastic hospitality. Couldn't recommend it more! :)

    Mariana2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • Coming off the Otago Rail Trail we over shot this gorgeous villa but we're easily directed at the cafe. Our lovely bedroom had its own super clean ensuite bathroom and we thoroughly enjoyed the coffee and continental breakfast over a chat with Brett who is also a bike trail enthusiast.

    The bedrooms are seperate from the house and in a large country garden. We have a BBQ available for your use and an outdoor table and chairs.
    Tarras is a delightful little village, with a couple of beautiful shops and an excellent cafe with very good coffee. There is a popular 9 hole golf course, and a quaint historic church. All 4 minutes drive away. There are numerous local walks to do with spectacular views.
  • Lovely comfortable bed, and a beautiful garden with a large patio window onto it from the room. Margot was exceedingly helpful.

  • Margot was particularly helpful and went out of her way to meet our extra needs. A peaceful and beautiful setting, with a super cafe just down the road at Tarras. We will certainly return!
