Activities/Attractions: From rugged mountains to a wild and deserted coastline, golden hill country to crystal alpine lakes, the Southern Lakes region is one of the most diverse and physically beautiful on earth. It’s easy to see why New Zealand film director Peter Jackson chose this region for so many Lord of the Rings locations.

Queenstown is New Zealand's premier visitor destination. Located on the shores of New Zealand's longest lake, the resort plays host to more than a million visitors a year. From the adrenalin rush of bungy jumping, skydiving, jet boating and white water rafting, to the peace and quiet of back country walks, Queenstown provides a full range of activities in an unparalleled alpine setting.

Enjoy golfing on international standard courses or the winter thrill of skiing and snowboarding on the resort's two ski fields in a resort that has year-round attraction. The owners (Jef and Robina) have lived in this area for over 20 years and have extensive first hand knowledge of the quality local operators for any of your interests:

  • fishing
  • tramping
  • mountain biking
  • climbing
  • kayaking
  • ski/snowboard touring
  • heliskiing
  • golf

Jef has worked as a guide on the rivers, mountains and snows of NZ and Robina is a qualified naturopath and health/fitness adviser. Both are keen for anything outdoors. Just ask and we'll happily steer you in the right direction for any level of quality experience.


"Dear Robina and Jef, as we approach the end of our stay, we wish we could prolong it indefinitely. We feel truly at home and cherish every moment. We have stayed at five star hotels, but nothing compares with Skyview. It is superbly designed, extremely comfortable, and set in memorable scenery. We wouldn't change a thing. We stayed in an apartment in Queenstown last year and we were a little apprehensive about the location of Skyview.  Having been here, we have no wish to be in Queenstown. We are happy and very comfortable here. As I said to you on arrival, Skyview is better when encountered than what can be seen on the website. This is rare. Thank you both for everything. You were here when we needed you, and always knew you were there for us. We hope to see you again."

"Fantastic storage facilities in bedrooms, love all the random hooks. You surpassed everything we expected during our stay - the spices were a nice touch. Discount on the heliskiing was a huge bonus!! The windows are great how they open up completely. As a chef, I love the kitchen ... love the drying rack in the lounge ... love the eco touches, clearly stemming from your life philosophy. Thanks also for taking the time to allow us to settle in and being available."

"What a lovely place! It was so peaceful, yet there was so much to keep us busy. The girls loved the pool, trampoline & climbing wall, and they even enjoyed helping Mom hang out the clothes to dry. Special thanks to Terry ... and to Mike who made us amazing arrangements to helicopter into Fiordland National Park. Our visit was too short, but we had a great time. Thank you!"

"What a truly harmonious spot. Your lodge was spectacular and all details well thought out. The colours blended with the outside landscape and the attention to detail for kitchen, bedrooms, and baths exceptional. We have traveled wide and far with our children ages 3, 6, and 8 and by far this has been our most fabulous rental! Well done and we hope to journey here again."

"The most relaxing lodge any of us have ever stayed in. A real retreat. Thanks Jef and Robina, you have a very special place."

"We found everything we needed, and felt really comfortable here. We appreciated the care you have taken to design, furnish and equip this place."

"All areas of the lodge are well equipped ... Appliances, utensils and furnishings are all top quality. Lots of cozy spaces to relax and think, good separation of different living spaces. The accommodation is of a very high standard ... Spotless, Better than expected. What I have enjoyed about Skyview is the peacefulness and serenity of the land and environment ... I think that the key is finding the perfect balance between quality accommodation and 'being away from it all'. I personally like the current 'balance' of Skyview."

"The whole family really loved the place, and we had one of our best holidays ever. Karen and I liked the bed we had so much that we've bought one for ourselves! I can't believe our week here is gone. I haven't had enough time to figure out how to take this place with me. What can I say that would be enough? We'll be back!"

"Totally beautiful. Specially loved touches like flowers & 'bubbles' & spices etc in the kitchen. Bathrooms/towels/beds all lovely. You have made an exceptional home. Pool brilliant. Loved the tracks. This is a gorgeous place, wonderfully designed & built."

"We have had a wonderful week in this peaceful and very picturesque location. The property is perfect - very clean with high quality fixtures and fittings. The non-chlorinated pool was a real bonus and very warm!  We really appreciated the spacious showers and especially the outside bath."

"The lodge is so beautifully comfortable, it is tempting just to stay here. Thank you!"

Thanks again and see you next year."
