Stonehill Villa

  • 10 guests
  • 5 bedrooms
  • 4.5 bathrooms

This historic gem was the first building on Queenstown Hill and the seventh building in Queenstown. Built in 1871, this remarkable retreat hosts a home-away-from-home to dream of. The architect of this home has thought through every detail to maintain the historic cottage whilst updating it with a beautiful blend of modern.

The warmth and charm will delight any guest, and the well-apportioned bedrooms will ensure a most comfortable stay. Experience ultimate relaxation gathered in one of the generous living spaces or enjoy snuggling up in front of the roaring, schist-surrounded open fire. Entertaining and cooking is a pleasure with panoramas of Lake Whakatipu and the surrounding mountains from the well-appointed kitchen and dining areas.

The delightful, securely fenced gardens are something extraordinary and a rarity in this location. From the moment you enter the property, you will be encapsulated by the superb privacy, beautiful lavender and rose bushes when in bloom. The various outdoor spaces will tempt guests into dining alfresco to immerse into the ambience of Queenstown.

Perfectly situated within a five-minute walk from the Queenstown town centre, it’s walking distance to the shops, bars, restaurants, Lake Whakatipu and a multitude of attractions.
