“Fantastic view”
Reviewed 16 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Referred to as the “Villa,” though not sure why, this basic but nicely done house comes with mesmerizing views. We were supposed to be welcomed by Emily, which didn’t happen. But, before we called, we thought to look under the front door mat and found the key. The house was clean and well-appointed, although we never did find the heat pump, or whatever it was called. It was mentioned in the all-important instruction notebook, but without information as to exactly where it was located and how to operate it, we were unable to find it. The weather was mild enough except for brief intervals so we didn’t call. They did make reservations for the gondola and zip-lining, which was a help. All in all, we would recommend staying here.

Hi Judie - Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. The views really are mesmerizing, aren't they! We do apologise for Emily being unable to meet you on your arrival, we had a clash with check-in times - Emily had come back an hour later to give you a tour of the property, but was told not to worry and that you had settled in. In regards to the heat pump and remotes, we're always available via email or phone to answer these questions, that's no trouble to us. We hope you got a thrill out of your activities and had a safe trip home. Take care - Jacqui and the team at Touch of Spice.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 3 December 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This place has it all -- amazing views over Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables as well as an absolute luxury feel to the apartment itself. With heated flooring in the bathrooms, a large fire place, and a great heating system, this place is super warm and cozy -- great to curl up with a glass of wine while enjoying the views after a day exploring the surrounding area. Can't recommend it enough.

“Queenstown house with amazing views”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This was one of the best, if not the best, places we have stayed in NZ. The view from the living room is stunning and the place is clean and tastefully done up. Very elegant. Everyone we interacted with from "Touch of Spice" was helpful and the couple of trips they booked for us (the flight to Milford Sound and the 4x4 LoTR tour) were great. It's 5-6 mins drive to the town square with all the restaurants (Fergberger!) and costs about $12-14 NZD if you take a taxi. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful Views”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Apartment was very well furnished with full kitchen and washer/dryer. Just a short walk outside of town so was very quiet with views to die for! It was lovely to open the curtains in the morning to see the lake and mountains. Lots to do in and around Queenstown. Really recommend the evening BBQ at Walter Peak. Would love to return.

“A perfect place to stay in a wonderful city”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Highview was everything we could have asked for and more -- fantastic views from the panoramic windows, great facilities and a very comfortable place to stay. Queenstown is a spectacular place to visit and Highview was the perfect place to stay.

Nicola at Touch of Spice made the experience wonderful and easy including ordering us food for when we arrived and answering all my questions with a professional and friendly attitude.
