This Homestead is a lovely 30 minute drive away from crowded Queenstown. The home is situated in a charming little town that is peaceful and lovely. The house is very well appointed...it was like being in an English cottage and provided us travelers with all of the amenities of a well kept home. The yards are beautiful with fragrant roses, the views are stunning. We cannot say enough good things about the Kingstown Homestead. Sara does a marvelous job of providing a wonderful, warm house that only enhanced our New Zealand experience.

Management response:

Thanks Kathy, I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to seeing you again in the future.
