About Staysouth

What We Do



From penthouse apartments on the doorstep to town, hillside chalet-style villas with extraordinary views, to lakefront townhouses on Wakatipu’s shoreline - Staysouth are Queenstown's specialists in luxury apartment & villa holiday rentals and property management.  

A modern-day matchmaker of sorts, Andy Salek - long-term local, heli-ski guide, film producer and apartment owner - founded Staysouth way back in 2006 as a way to bring together empty luxury apartments and villas with discerning holidaymakers. Creating one beautiful holiday experience after another.

What started as a modest outfit with two properties, Staysouth has grown to manage over 50 different villas and apartments in Queentown’s most popular locations.

Whether it's your annual family ski retreat or an intimate getaway for two. Maybe it’s an adventure weekend to rival any watercooler chat or a bit of rancho relaxo (conveniently) close to wine country, Staysouth offers an extensive selection of accommodation possibilities to suit any Queenstown holiday.


Why Stay with Staysouth?

We know that where you stay can make or break a holiday, which is why Staysouth is passionate about providing outstanding accommodation in Queenstown’s most desirable locations.

But it's not just the place and the properties that make us stand out – it's the people and the service. For our guests, we go the extra mile.

Taking a behind-the-scenes approach to guest services – from small gestures to larger requests – our team ensures that while your unique holiday needs are met, you’re left with maximum privacy to enjoy an unforgettable holiday with Staysouth.

Because every holiday leaves an impression, let us help you write one for the storybooks.


Concierge Service

Because no one knows a town quite like the locals do, our dedicated concierge service is committed to offering unparalleled knowledge, local expertise and up-to-date insider tips.

You name it - we can either recommend it, book it, or simply talk you through it.

Whether it’s adventure activities like local hiking tracks, biking trails and heliskiing, or luxury activities such as flights to Milford Sound, a world-class fine dining experience or a winery tour and degustation lunch, we can source the best option for your appetite.

It might be as simple as a guide to shopping locally, a rundown of the nightlife hot spots, or even finding somewhere to park, Staysouth’s concierge team are on hand to help when you need them. As long-term locals who have been active in all aspects of tourism, we have both the experience and knowledge to ensure your time in Queenstown is unique to you. 

Email in advance to get all the information before your arrival or simply reach out to us once you have settled into your home away from home. Staysouth’s concierge services are completely free of charge. Our only aim is to ensure you make the most of your time in our backyard.
