Ibon house in Queenstown is absolutely amazing. Cannot fault anything. The view is amazing the location is great. There was plenty of room for 5 couples and very clean. Cant wait to go back again.

Thank you for such great feedback, Francisco. Ibon house is a sensational property, the views of the Remarkables Mountain range leave us awestruck every time, so we're glad to hear you feel the same! We can't wait to have you and your friends come and stay with us in either Queenstown or Wanaka again soon. Until then, wishing you safe travels. Sincerely, Caitlin- Goodstays.

The View and the fire place are amazing. You feel peace and tranquility looking out the windows. There is heaps of space, our 2 families fitted comfortably. Its unfortunate that the property is not being maintained. The Bathrooms are run down and poorly presented. The beds were hard and uncomfortable. The linen was worn, lumpy and stained. There were no additional linens, blankets or pillows. There wasn't even a plug for the kitchen sink or fireplace tools.

Hi Donna, firstly I would like to thank you for choosing to book with us here at Goodstays and for taking the time to leave us some feedback. It is unfortunate to hear that you found the property to not be maintained, as our maintenance team works very hard to ensure that the properties remain in immaculate condition. In terms of missing items and linen, had you given us a call during your stay we would have been more than happy to send someone from Guest Services over to resolves these issues. I hope that you loved your time in stunning Queenstown and wish you all the best. Kind Regards, Caitlin-Goodstays.

great property with wonderful views and plenty of space. Kitchen hob and rangehood need to be replaced and as well as the pots and pans. Living areas need curtains/blinds. Property needed a bit of maintenance. There was some damage to the property prior to our arrival which we were charged for by Goodstays. When entering the property for the first time you should complete a premises condition report and forward it to them immediately to avoid being stung for damage which was clearly there prior to your arrival. The Goodstays App and emails had conflicting information and the property managers did not reply to queries via the Goodstays website.

We had a wonderful family holiday at Ibon House to celebrate our Mum's 75th Birthday.There was 10 Adults and we all were accommodated very comfortably.The location was quiet , view outstanding and everything that we could ask for.The only little criticism would be that some of the fittings are getting a wee bit tired and worn , but to be expected with hosting large numbers of people we presume all year round.

We loved the view from the living room, and the incredibly tasteful decor! The living areas provided a very comfortable space for our 10 guests.

I need to point out some of the downsides around the bedrooms, however:
- 3 of the bedrooms have sliding doors that lead directly into one another (I am not sure why!)
- the upstairs 'master bedroom' is not a master bedroom. It has a good ensuite, but the room is small and it has no door - if guests come to use the garage or the ground floor bathroom, they will be 'in' your room.
- the actual master bedroom appears to be locked off from the house.

Those oddities aside, the place really is spectacular. The pictures do not even start to do the place justice, and it is an entertainer's dream. My wife prepared for the wedding in the living room in front of the view of the Remarkables, and she says it was an unforgettable experience.

The property's private location out of the city is ideal: there plenty of parking, it's not too long a walk down the hill (although I wouldn't want to walk back up), and it's a very short drive down to the bottom.

The property was kept very clean, we were very happy with the presentation.

Congratulations on the wedding, Queenstown is a magical place and I can't think of a better place to celebrate such a special occasion. We hope that next time you head down to Queenstown or over the hill to idyllic Wanaka (maybe for your first wedding anniversary!) you let us know and we would be delighted to assist you in finding further accommodation.

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.

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.

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.)

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

Useless old kitchen pans that should be thrown out. Oven door doesn't seal , fridge far too small & no cleaning cloths or spray . Had to buy
Cleaning kitchen bathroom spray & cloths . Very poorly managed as many guest book reviews have said same as me . Someone has to do something for expensive house with sub standard equipment.

This property has the most astounding views. Perched high on a mountain side, it presented us with 180 degree views over the lake and Queenstown. The windows have been positioned to maximise the scenery from every room upstairs and downstairs. The house was generally clean and well presented however there were some aspects worth mentioning:
1. The toilet paper holders in all the toilets were coming off the wall and there was insufficient toilet paper provided for 9 guests
2. There were no dishwashing tablets which should have been provided
3. The sinkerator did not work
4. Some power outlets did not work
5. The fridge size was too small to hold food and drink for 9 people and a small bar fridge would have been useful
6. Oven door does not close properly and food took twice as long to cook
6. Shorter stem wine glasses would have fitted in the dishwasher
7. Several doors have squeaking hinges
8. We needed to top up the "S" bend in the upstairs hot water cylinder overflow which then stopped the sewer smells in the upper bedroom.
9. Hopefully you regularly change the code for the 'key safe' otherwise the system is only as secure as the honesty of the previous renters.
10. The utensil hanging block over the mobile food prep bench was a hazard for taller people and served no real purpose. Could be removed and stored in garage.
11. Understand the trend is now to make up beds with bottom and top sheet, doona without doona cover and another sheet on top. This looks like an untidy short cut and an effort to avoid having to do laundry. It does not give the renters the impression of a neat and tidy, well thought out bedroom.

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.

Stayed here with family - 10 Adults. House was spacious, so never felt we were invading each other's space. View was just spectacular! Will definitely stay there again. Highly recommend staying this property!

We wish we could stay longer. We never thought about renting the house like this and usually stayed at the hotel. however, it turns out way better to stay at the house like yours, greater location and facilities!
Thank you

Beautiful view, but need trim some trees, otherwise will block view future.

Hi Ivy, Thank you for your feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay with us in Queenstown! The neighbouring tree's actually belong to another owner who is having them trimmed to ensure the views remain amazing as always. We look forward to hearing from you next time you plan to visit!

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!!

The house was just wonderful. We picked it for the view looking out over the lake, while sitting in the comfy lounge. The house suited very well our family of nine aults.

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!

This place is outstanding the views are amazing. There is plenty of room for everyone, the rooms are spacious, not far from the centre if Queenstown. When we walked into the house we all went Wow. Highly recommend this property to anyone.

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.

What a beautiful house with sweeping magnificent views. Our family stayed in this house with another family and it was a wonderful place to stay - plenty of space for everyone, great facilities and a breathtaking view to die for. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My family and I had such a wonderful Queenstown holiday. Arranging the booking was easy, and the property manager once was arrived was great. We were all blown away when first arriving at Ubon House - the views, the enormous house, and lovely, simple furnishings. It was perfect for our family. There is already talk of when we will return!! Thank you.

The house & views were stunning - exactly what we were hoping for. We didn't have water on arrival & continued to experience water issues for the duration of our stay. Managemant weren't helpful or positive when we sought help (twice) but compensation was offered after we left. Everyday we mysteriously came home to dead flys all through the upstairs. Couldn't ask for a better house & location, just a better experience. Maybe better luck next time..
