About this Holiday House

If you're looking to be close to the beauty and activities of both Queenstown and Wanaka, but with the peace and quiet of the country, you'll love Cardrona! Located about half way between Queenstown and Wanaka, Absolute Cardrona provides a welcoming retreat from which to savour the extensive range of winter and summer activities this part of New Zealand has to offer. The property offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, welcoming open fireplace, under floor heating, a reverse cycle heat pump (air conditioner), a good sized kitchen dining area and lounge. The LCD TV has freeview and a DVD player, a mini media centre to take your USB, and a mini stereo system for playing CD's and a cable provided to hook up your IPOD or other digital music device. All crockery and linen is provided, there's a dishwasher, a drying room for all that sporting equipment that needs drying out, a single car remote control garage and plenty of off street parking. What will you be doing? Well, all year round it's a great place to just chill out and enjoy the peace and quiet of the picturesque setting. If you don't like sitting still though, there's more than enough to keep you going flat out! In winter, whether a beginner skier or the most adventurous, you'll find yourself located a mere 3 minutes to the turn off to Cardrona Ski Resort, Snow Park or Snow Farm. Or as an alternative, only 35 minutes to any of Treble Cone, The Remarkables or Coronet Peak ski fields. For the non-skiers, or if you're here in summer, a short 20 to 35 minute drive takes you to any of the fabulous Gibbston Valley wineries, the fabulous shopping of Queenstown or Wanaka, the charm of historic Arrowtown or the literally dozens of walking tracks in the whole of the Mt Aspiring park plus all of the adrenalin thrills that the Queenstown Lakes district offers. You are also handy to new Highlands motorsport complex at Cromwell. Should we mention, great mountain biking and cycling, bungy jumping, heli skiing, jet boating, white water rafting, parachuting, rock climbing etc, etc, etc. There's also horse trekking and other activities within minutes of the front door. At the end of your hectic day of skiing, walking, wine tasting, cycling, or whatever, you are just 5 minutes walk away from the delights of the roaring outdoor fireplace and cuisine of the Historic Cardrona Hotel. Then, when you've had enough, you'll find Absolute Cardrona, your home away from home, offers the cosy, inviting comforts of cosy fireplace, hot showers, heated floors and a wonderfully comfortable warm bed.

Hi, We stayed there for a week. We were totally impressed with everything. The Drummonds were great hosts as well. It helped the the skiing and weather were great too. Loved how the house was warm and even the floors. Very grateful. Michael Trowbridge - www.facebook.com/chiroman. I'm the only chiro in Swansea, NSW if you need to contact me.
