About the Property

This gorgeous holiday house, situated in the affluent suburb of Queenstown Hill is spread over three levels, all contemporary in design and handily accessible via the in-house lift. On the top floor, you’ll find the vast and open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area; on the middle level you will find all 3 bedrooms, each of which offers fantastic lake and mountain views; whilst on the first floor, you will find the front door to this beautiful property as well as internal access to your private 2-car garage. 

The elevated position of 13 Poole Lane Unit 4, halfway up Queenstown Hill, ensures you are guaranteed the spectacular lake and mountain views Queenstown is famous for but also means you are only a short 10-minute downhill saunter to Queenstown’s lively town centre. Idyllic in its design, facilities and location, 13 Poole Lane Unit 4 is the perfect base for those planning their next Queenstown adventure.  


The three bedrooms are all roomy, warm and South facing ensuring they all offer outstanding lake and mountain views. All three feature king beds, with the third bedroom being capable of being split into twin singles meaning if you are travelling as a family with children or as a group of friends, you have the appropriate bedding to suit your needs.  

The master bedroom is both classy and rustic in style and features large glass panel windows ensuring the room is brightly lit throughout the day. A tranquil and serene spot with the view of the calm waters of Lake Wakatipu readily available from the expansive windows, you can wake up in awe each morning of your stay. 

The sliding glass panel windows to the very left of the bed open to a shared balcony area. This balcony area is also accessible from the bedroom next door and offers a quaint and quiet spot to enjoy morning coffee or to simply assess the weather conditions before starting your day.  

Just around the corner and immediately behind the television in the master, you will find another outdoor area with table and chairs. This vast space is again perfect for morning coffee however given that the outdoor stairs around the corner lead to the apartment’s BBQ facilities, it also acts as a secondary space for outdoor dining.  

The master plays hosts to its very own en-suite. Sizeable in terms of floor space, the facilities within include shower, deep spa bath, dual sinks and mirrors, ample storage space, heated towel rail and underfloor heating.   

The second and third bedrooms are of similar size and share the second bathroom directly adjacent. This bathroom features shower facilities, toilet, sink with storage unit, heated towel rail and underfloor heating.  

Relaxation Room 

Situated on the top floor, around the corner from the living space you will find the small study room. An intimate space, ideal as simply a quiet and private room which could be used to relax and unwind after long and arduous days exploring this stunning region.    

Top Floor Open-Plan Lounge, Kitchen and Dining Area  

Upon reaching the top floor of this luxury Queenstown apartment you are welcomed by the expansive and comforting living area. This open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area offers the same stunning vistas as the bedrooms with the added luxury of an extensive outdoor balcony area. Equipped with outdoor furniture, this intimate space acts as the perfect place for alfresco dining, sunset drinks and soaking up Queenstown’s rugged beauty.

The lounge itself is generously sized and emanates comfort, playing host to an enormous L-shaped sofa capable of seating your entire group. This is accompanied by 2 individual armchairs with ottomans meaning everyone can lounge at their leisure after an action-packed Queenstown adventure. 

Cosy and warm throughout the winter and contentedly cool in summer, you are guaranteed comfort both in terms of both the furnishings and temperature all year round with the large gas fireplace fitted within the central stone wall column as well as electric heat pump and air conditioning unit fixed at the opposite end of the room. 

Whilst the first-class views are the main attraction in this space, the living area does come equipped with Sky Television and complimentary High-speed Wi-Fi for relaxed evenings indoors or when the weather throughout the day decides to misbehave.  

The kitchen ensures 13 Poole Lane Unit 4 is the ideal apartment for those interested in self-catering and entertaining in the evenings. This space is fully equipped with gas stovetop, electric oven, microwave and dishwashing facilities, as well as all the essential utensils and kitchenware one might require. Furthermore, with the thought of entertaining in mind, situated around the back of the apartment you will find the outdoor gas barbeque, perfect for Queenstown’s drawn-out midsummer nights with fresh and local produce readily available from the numerous vendors nearby. 

To round off 13 Poole Lane Unit 4's practicality, washing and drying facilities can be found in the garage on the bottom floor. 

13 Poole Lane Unit 4 is an outstanding property and one of our top recommendations for those looking for beautifully appointed accommodation in a prime location. 

13 Poole Lane Unit 1 is homely, stylishly decorated to match its surroundings and is one of our highly recommended short-term holiday rental options whilst visiting Queenstown.

Situated in a prime and elevated position halfway up Queenstown Hill, one of Queenstown’s most desirable living locations sits 13 Poole Lane Unit 1. Sizeable, pleasantly decorated and highly practical given how well provisioned the apartment is, 13 Poole Lane Unit 1 makes for an ideal short-term holiday home and offers everything you could desire at any time of the year whilst visiting Queenstown, New Zealand.  

Set across two floors, you will find the open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, standalone toilet, small study area and a private parking garage with laundry facilities all on the top floor.  

Downstairs you will find all 3 bedrooms as well as an extra guest/cinema room with a sofa bed, ideal for accommodating those travelling with a 7th guest (additional charges apply).  

Top Floor Open Plan Lounge, Kitchen and Dining Area

As soon as you enter 13 Poole Lane Unit 1 you are welcomed by the spacious open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. There is an immediate aura of relaxation, with large leather sofas accompanied by turquoise blue armchairs which face directly out to the perfectly colour matched Lake Wakatipu.  

In the corner of this space, you will find the dining table with seating to accommodate a group of 6. In the opposite end of the room, you will find a small study area with desk and lamp, perfect for those who need to clock in and tackle some work for just a few hours whilst visiting.  

The lounge area is complete with a grand gas fireplace, perfect for Queenstown’s occasionally harsh winter days and perfect for cosy nights in. Likewise, Unit 1 is equipped with a heat pump and air conditioning unit meaning extra heat in the winter and guaranteed cooler temperatures when the summer rolls around.  

Additional entertainment sources within this luxury apartment include Sky Television, ultra-fast and complimentary Wi-Fi as well as a collection of books and DVDs available in the bookshelf.  

Expansive glass-paned windows at the south-facing end of the 13 Poole Lane Unit 1 act as the main light source to the upper-level living space. 

Doubling as sliding doors, the glass windows open to an intimate balcony equipped with outdoor furniture. With Lake Wakatipu in the immediate foreground, you also have the very tail end of The Remarkables, Cecil and Walter Peak, the Queenstown Gardens Peninsula as well as the township of Queenstown itself in sight. 

The Queenstown Bay and Wharf area are also in plain view, with a plethora of water-based activity such as jet boats and the renowned TSS Earnslaw flowing through to inspire you to add to your no doubt already hectic Queenstown itinerary.  

Master Bedroom

Downstairs in this luxury Queenstown apartment, you will find all 3 bedrooms. Much like the living area, all are equipped with every season in mind with wall panel heaters for warmth as well as individual heat pump/air conditioning units for both added heat and a source of cool air when required. 

In the master, the autumnal bronze colour of the bedspread, curtains and headboard are juxtaposed with the turquoise blue of the ottoman and cushions; once again reflecting the colour scheme of the rugged Southern Lakes Mountains and calm waters of the Lake Wakatipu which are both present in plain sight from the large glass panel windows. 

The master bedroom is spacious and bright and given its private outdoor balcony space accessible via the glass sliding doors, it offers both an abundance of natural light as well as a secluded area to breathe in the grandeur of the landscape in front of you.

The master is also equipped with en-suite which is similarly vast in size. Featuring dual sinks, full wall mirror, shower facilities, toilet, deep spa bath, heated towel rail and underfloor heating you are well provisioned to ensure you both start your day right and are able to unwind and relax after potentially long days exploring Queenstown. 

Second and Third Bedrooms

The second and third bedrooms are both equipped with king beds with one of them having the capability of being split into twin singles (2 singles beds). Both rooms are similarly kitted out with the same heating and cooling apparatus as the master bedroom and share the second bathroom on the same floor. This bathroom is again similarly equipped to the master’s en-suite featuring shower facilities, dual sinks, toilet, heated towel rail and underfloor heating. 

The second and third bedrooms also share an intimate outdoor space which is accessible via glass panelled doors from both rooms. 

Each bedroom is equipped with its very own television ensuring those who want to de-stress in the privacy of their own space have all the necessary tools at their disposal. 

Cinema Room
