We stayed at Ibon house for 11 days through January. House was clean, comfortable and easily accommodated 10 people. View is spectacular at anytime of the day or night. Only negatives, Lack of decent utensils eg. frypans etc, fridge too small for 10 people. No recycling bins for plastic/glass etc. Overall though we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Ibon House.

180 degree cliff lake view, enjoy the sun from sun raising to sunset, enjoy the night views of the town, so close to town centre, everything met our expectations, spacious indoor and outdoor space, lovely and characteristic decorations, modern renovated bathrooms. Professional and up to date property management and customers services. No doubt to go back and recommend to friends

We had 3 generations of my family (1 son, 1 daughter, their spouses and kids) and all were comfortably housed. Someone needs to take better care of plants in pots on the rear terrace and to supply more waste paper baskets, but when you consider the view and the convenience to regional wonders it was very good indeed. We enjoyed cooking and eating together during the long light of evening looking at the spectacular view.

A fantastic home for our family. There was plenty of space for us all (children and adults), the house was warm and cozy, the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms excellent, and the views were absolutely spectacular. Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation. Goodstays were promptly and professionally responsive to the requests we made.
Thank you!

The view from every room of his house is gorgeous, and it changes all day as the light and clouds change. The house itself is nicely laid out and comfortable. Our family of 10 stayed a week and had a great time. We especially liked that the tables, both inside and outside, comfortably seat 10. Our weather wasn't great, but the outside patio is large and we would have used it a lot in warmer weather. The walk to town takes about 35 minutes and is pretty, but we were not game for walking back up the hill to get home. We had cars and there are taxis in town, and apparently a bus that gets close to the house. Being up the hill is the price you pay for the beautiful view, and it is totally worth it!
Little maintenance things keep me from giving a fully fabulous review. Some lights weren't working, the dishwasher is temperamental, the Internet was annoyingly slow, and there were other things, all of which would have been easily fixed with an hour or two of a handyman's time. (I wrote to Goodstays about this, and hopefully they'll fix things before the next guests arrive.)

Absolutely loved our stay at Ibon House. The Bach is huge and comfortable. Ample room for 10. Unparalleled views from the whole house. Convenient to town though not via foot. Slightly disappointing that the spa had to be hired on top of the Bach, but the hire was easy and recommended.

Dear Tom, Thank you for your review. The property certainly has plenty of room for 10 and the views are incredible, glad to hear you were able to enjoy them. We look forward to your next visit to Queenstown. Best Regards, Andrea

WOW ! . What a view ! Very big spacious family home with a great feel to it. Open fire place with enough lounge and meal seating for 10 people easy plus. All bedrooms had lake views. Its a 2km easy walk to town and a $15 cab fare home after a great dinner and drinks at the end of a very busy day in this town. Every day was an new adventure. Our favorite adventure was without a doubt the Wilderness Jet boat up the Dart river. It's a must for a family adventure. The house is on a private road so no wheely bins but just some planning on rubbish removal and a short trip to recycling dump near airport and very easy to manage. We would be very happy to use this house again or recommend it to all our friends and we already have done since coming home. Its not cheap but other options of 3 or 4 units closer to town are a lot more expensive. You would just need transport for your stay and for 10 of us we hired a 12 seater Mini bus for $1400 EZI Rentals to go anywhere we wanted. It was a cracker place for a cracker of a holiday. Well done NZ ! XO

Nick at Goodstays replied…

Dear Bronwyn, Wow it sounds like you all had such an amazing time in NZ! It's great that Ibon House was the perfect setup for your group as well, the views from the large living room windows certainly are incredible and after a long day looking out at the view sitting by that fire certainly would made for a highlight of any stay! We look forward to welcoming you back to Queenstown again one day! Best regards, Goodstays

The house was everything I'd hoped it would be. There were 8 adults staying at the house which accommodated all of us easily, although we did have some negative things to comment on. Some of the utensils in the kitchen were dirty or unusable mainly the small size frying pan it needs to be tossed. The fridge is way to small and the dishwasher doesn't clean properly. There was a container of lollies between the cushions on the lounge, and nail clippings on the carpet next to the recliner chair. The garbage was a major problem only being allocated 2 bags for our week's stay was very inadequate. I would suggest more detail to cleaning thoroughly and perhaps another fridge in the garage for drinks etc.

The open fire place provided a wonderful ambience whilst admiring the wintry vista.

Amazing 5 bedroom house with a beautiful outlook overlooking the lake and mountains. Very warm house with plenty of heating as well as a lovely open fireplace. Only thing I could say it needed was a vacuum cleaner or a dustbuster so crumbs etc could be easily picked up. Other than that just wonderful.

Beautiful location, fantastic layout of living space for a large group of people, stunning views. Kitchen let it down, not enough utensils and crockery (such as mugs) to accomadate 10 people. No dishcloth etc. Also bedroom heaters on a timer and turned off after 30mins. I imagine this could be quite cold in the winter? Still having said that, I would go back here again- beautiful house!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review. Ibon House is an amazing spot! We've taken on board your feedback re kitchen and will be forwarding this to the property owner. Heating (including timers) is adjusted per season. Thanks again! - team at Goodstays Queenstown

Perfect house for extended family. The house sits on a hill and is a downhill walk to town (about 30 minutes) and a steep uphill walk home. However the view is stunning. Some minor inconveniences with house but nothing that dampened our enjoyment of this excellent property. Highly recommend it.

Excellent accommodation for our group of 9 Hikers, who each needed their own bed.we hired 2 roller beds to suit this requirement. We loved the large sitting area with the huge open fire, the sunny kitchen and dining area. A cosy alcove which captured the sun, was perfect for reading or a quiet moment away from the crowd. The panoramic views completed this perfect home.

Hi this is a fantastic property but the kitchen is ill equipped and we had to buy an egg slice and mugs. The house sleeps 10 and there were 8 of us and it never felt cramped and we could all escape to our rooms etc. I think the pictures do not do the house jsutice! It is so much better with that fabulous view!

We stayed for 5 nights at Ibon House and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house easily accomodated us (3 adults and 4 children and a baby). The views are stunning from every room - it was such a pleasure to sit in the living room and look out over the lake. The living area is open plan, spacious and very comfortable. The bedrooms downstairs (4 bedrooms) are very comfortable. One of the bedrooms didn't have heating but Goodstays got us a portable electronic heater and it was fine. There were some small issues with the plumbing (the shower in one of the bathrooms flooded the floor) but Goodstays also arranged a plumber to fix this and it wasn't too much of a bother. Overall we LOVED it there and would highly recommend it. The location is also great provided you have a car (about a 7 minute drive into town). Hard to walk as the house is located up a steep hill.
