ATAAHUA PROPERTY SUMMARY:
Ataahua (the Maori name for beauty) is located in the heart of Queenstown. This newly renovated holiday home is your perfect family getaway. Stylishly furnished, with lake and mountain views, this stunning home is a quick 10-minute walk to Queenstown’s restaurants, cafés, bars and retail stores.
Enter the property through the front entrance and into the light and bright hallway. To your right, is the internal garage. Perfect for bringing your luggage and shopping in when it’s cold outside. There is also plenty of room in the garage for your ski and sports gear.
Upstairs to your left is the laundry area and main bathroom, plus access to the outdoor dining area with BBQ and six-seater dining table. Ideal in the summer months with plenty of foliage proving shade and ambience. Back inside and to your right, is the first of three bedrooms. Luxuriously decorated, with a subtle peek of those stunning lake and mountain views.
Straight through from here, you’ll walk into the open plan kitchen, living and dining. The modern kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment you’ll need – just like home. The tastefully decorated lounge is the perfect place to cuddle up with a local pinot after a great day up the slopes or exploring this fine region. Enjoy the warmth of the log burner in winter or open up the large, bi-folding windows during the warmer months and let that cool breeze off the lake create the perfect indoor temperature.
Back through to the hallway and up the second flight of stairs, to your right is the master bedroom with walk in wardrobe, ensuite, and views. To the left of the stairwell, is the third bedroom with ensuite.

Very enjoyable week in Queenstown doing the biking trails. As we had our bikes with us the garage was essential. The home was warm and comfortable and well equipped. Beds and linen very clean and comfortable - no complaints at all.
My only suggestion would be to provide a few basic consumables such as cooking oils, salt and pepper and maybe a few sauces or spices as I do in my own holiday home. When on holiday for a week and especially if flying in you don’t want to be buying the basics and for the small additional cost - I think its worth it for an even more enjoyable stay. I know you will disagree but thats my opinion and our holiday always gets good comments about that.

We were very impressed with our mid-winter stay at Ataahua. The heater had been left on for our arrival, so we walked into a warm house. The property was exceptionally clean and well prepared for us. The well-laid-out kitchen had everything we needed and more. It has all the essentials for cooking, ie. salt, pepper and some spreads etc as well as foil, kitchen towels etc. The bedrooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable with plenty of pillows and quality linen. Each of the 3 bathrooms was clean and comfortable. The outlook is lovely, and each of the bedrooms takes advantage of a different aspect of this. The view over the lake is quintessential Queenstown, and you can enjoy this from all of the main rooms in the house. Access to wifi and Netflix made our day off skiing comfortable, and the location near town meant our teens could walk into town without needing us to drive them. We would find it hard to fault this property for comfort, location and outlook.
