The Castle Bach Queenstown. Perfect for a well earned break.

Adults-only Queenstown holiday home in Frankton, near Lake Wakatipu
Whether you're looking for a great place to relax or need some extra space for work, The Castle is the perfect destination. It's fully self contained, and there's plenty of outdoor space and room for parking. With linen, electricity, firewood and WiFi all included, all you need to do is move in. Before and after you come, our commercial cleaners will make sure you stay safe and well.
Our family bach commands stunning views of the Frankton Arm of Lake Wakatipu and Queenstowns 'Remarkables'. It's a true bach, rich in history and full of memorabilia. Most of the furnishings are from a previous generation although the beds and appliances are near new for a relaxed stay. The bach is in 'Old Frankton', a five minute drive (or a five minute walk from public transport) to the heart of Queenstown. Close to all Queenstowns attractions but away from the crowds. It's a 10 minute walk from the airport so normally you can fly in and not need a rental car. Yes, during the day the planes do fly over head and watching them is really cool, especially for kids. It will be nice to see them again. The bach and section are child friendly (not fully child-proof) with childproof locks on cupboards containing cleaners, a fireguard, a high chair, cot, kids DVDs and a toy box. There are lots of books, with a focus on the stories and history of Central Otago. It's only a 15 minute walk to a supermarket and major shopping center. A large park, indoor swimming pool with hydroslides, lakeside walking trails, golf course, the Queenstown event center and the lake itself (full of trout and salmon) are all within 10 minutes walk. Many of the areas attractions are open, even when restrictions are in place.
Queenstown is the perfect place for either a restful break or full-on adventure holiday. Leisurely walks, vineyard lunches, jet boating, bungy jumping, gold panning, horse trecking, four major ski fields and two internationally acclaimed golf course all nearby and last but not least its Lord of the Rings country with tours to suit everyone. The bach is warm with 2 nightstore heaters, radiant heaters in each room and an open fire.
The Castle is the perfect base for your lakes holiday. Close to Arrowtown and an easy drive to Clyde, Roxborough, Wanaka and Hawea. It's even used as a base for the Otago rail trail.
Obviously we love the place but so do our visitors, just check out the guest book...
