“A 21st birthday to remember ”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Had the most amazing 5 night stay here. Stayed with my family, partner and family friends for my 21st birthday. View was absolutely stunning. We all had to keep pinching ourselves as we couldn't believe what we were waking up to each day. My partner chose to be on dishwasher stacking duty as he said it's the best view he will ever see whilst doing the dishes haha! We all had a blast and couldn't have chose a better house to rent for the week. We were all very sad yesterday to be leaving, we are already missing the house and the view. We have created memories in that house that will last a lifetime. We will have to visit again one day soon. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us! The Fitzys & Co :)

“Peaceful, comfortable, enjoyable”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed with extended family for Christmas, the house was perfect for everyone to have their space and to gather together. The gardens and rural setting was so peaceful and pretty. Having the tennis court was a over expectation for us and we enjoyed many late afternoons on the court. Safe to say we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“One word - Breathtaking”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Staying at Matakauri was fantastic and I can't wait to return.

I travelled with a group of 2 families, 4 adults and 4 x early teens (and one infant) and we always felt like there was plenty of room. The house is beautifully presented and has absolutely everything you could possibly need.

The rooms are huge, the beds very comfortable, the bathrooms brilliant. Vicky, the manager, was even good enough to put out a small cot for our baby.

As amazing as the house is, and it truly is, it is the views from the balcony that will stay with you long after you depart Queenstown. Matakauri is perfectly perched to give a simply spectactular view over QT as well as Lake Wakatipu. You will wake in awe every day, and the view is available from the rooms as well.

Vicky provides a wonderful welcome on arrival and offers assistance at any point. It's really had to imagine that there is a better place to stay in QT.

“Incredible views and 5* Accomodation, just check what you're booking”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Matakauri Place, the accommodation is finished to an extremely high standard, spotlessly clean and with incredible views. What more could you ask for . . . . a 4th bedroom perhaps?
Unfortunately our stay at Matakauri Place was slightly tarnished by the fact we had been led to believe that we had the complete 4bed house. However on our arrival this was not the case and we only had the 3 bedroom top floor. This was a major lapse of communication by the owner as all our correspondence and receipt showed we had booked and paid for 'The Place'. After speaking with Rob I do believe it was an honest mistake and he has assured me in future bookings he will confirm exactly what is being booked and paid for.
Putting this aside we had a great break at Matakauri and would happily stay here again and will recommend to my friends.

“One of our highlights of our holiday”

When we arrived into Queenstown we called the house manager (as arranged) and were told how to get into the property - all very easy. On arriving we found the home to be entirely clean and tidy, and helpfully stocked with the basics (milk, teas, coffees, oil etc) and a good bottle of sparkling white. All mod cons were there, with nothing lacking in terms of being able to cook, BBQ etc.

I'd stayed in Queenstown a few times before and so knew to expect some great views, but those from the living areas were even more amazing then I had expected. My friends (who had never been to Queenstown) were also utterly impressed, both with the views and the luxurious standard of the accommodation (3 spacious bathrooms and bedrooms as well as the very comfortable kitchen/diner and separate lounge).

This is a first class property, which I would definitely rent again. The photos on their website truly do not do the place justice.
