Lauren was voted 'events co-ordinator of the decade' by her wider family for finding The Billiards Room, a Queenstown holiday home with a difference.

And what a difference.

We're not just talking about the novelty of a full-sized billiards table. Or the breathtaking views of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountains. Or the fully-fenced lawn and cottage garden. Or the fun vehicle available on request.

We're talking about a family home that effortlessly combines charm, style and comfort. Or as one guest has noted: "What a house with character, built with love."

Built with love by a builder as a retirement project. The property remains in the family, but the next generation have put their stamp on it -- with a French white master bedroom en suite, an integrated kitchen-dining area, an upgraded conservatory, new carpet and furnishings.

Here's what other guests have been saying:

- "This is a beautiful home and garden with loads of charm ..."

- "It's not often that a holiday home offers charm, character and warmth but this house does."

- " . . . each and every room was utterly gorgeous from the stunning light fittings to the tastefully chosen soft furnishings."

- "We had people coming and going every day over the past 12 days and everyone fell in love with this home."

- "Your house lent us room to spread out while still being together. We had meals in and played games instead of going out. It has been fantastic."

They could spread out because the house has appealing living spaces -- an inviting kitchen-dining area featuring a character table and new timber flooring, a lounge with majestic views, a den to retreat to with a book or to play chess, a conservatory to catch the winter sun. Then, of course, there's the billiards room -- around which this house was designed and built.

All this with the convenience of staying at home -- a fully-equipped kitchen with a new European oven, full laundry facilities, free wireless internet and satellite television.

All the rooms are connected to a super-duper central heating system during the cold months. There's also a heat pump in the kitchen-dining area. All beds have electric blankets.

The house, with a double garage underneath, is effectively at a first-floor level and opens up at the back on to a north-facing lawn and garden. There are five bedrooms, three in the main part of the house and two downstairs (with their own refurbished bathroom) adjoining the garage. There's table tennis in the garage. Also a ski drying room.

In addition, a yellow Jeep Wrangler Sport -- a two-door, manual vehicle -- is available to guests on application.

The Billiards Room is perfect for an extended family or two families. And children of all ages. Or a group of up to 10 adults.

If you're looking for something extra out of your holiday accommodation, you'll find it here. Lauren and her family did.

First class accommodation with magnificent views over the lake. It was very spacious and easily entertained and accommodated the ten visitors. There are rooms in which you could choose where to sit, spacious lounge, reading room (I calling this), conservatory onto the lawn outside where we played Petanque. The prize for the boys was a large full sized billiard table/room all set up for the serious players.
Everything exceeded expectations and worth every dollar. When the need presence itself we will return to this lovely house.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

We really enjoyed our stay at your house. It was perfect for a family get together, especially when we had family flying in from Melbourne direct to Queenstown airport. It catered for all our needs, the location was perfect and the view was stunning, and we would love to return some time. Having use of the jeep was also extremely helpful - thank you so much for making this available to us.
Our only comment would be that the cleaning of the house was not perfect.

This place is amazing. Awesome views. We stayed here for 7 nights. Even when the weather was bad it was nice to stay in as it felt so homely. There were 4 couples staying here, it's so spacious so you're not on top of one another. Very helpful owner who sorted out a few problems we had straight away. Would definately stay here again

We loved house. Thanks Michael for getting the house prepared before our arrival. We found it lovely, homy and welcoming. Everything is perfect. We cooked in the kichen, played in the billiards room, chatted in the living room, strolled in the yard. New World is not far away. Through the house is not located in the center of the town, but it is perfectly situated for our stay. The view is fantastic. Thanks again for sharing this beautiful house with us.

I LOVE this house. We have stayed here twice now and we will be back again. It is an absolute hidden gem. Comments from first time visitors that "it didn't look like much from the outside" quickly change as you enter into a world of never ending wonders. Rooms seem to cater for different moods and wants, spaces allow multiple families to be together or apart, the garden with roses in full bloom, the new table tennis table for alternative competition if you could ever get sick of the billiards table, and oh yes, was there a view? Everywhere you seem to go the design of the house keeps reminding you that you are in stunning Frankton/Queenstown right next to Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables...breathtaking!! Communication with Mike is always top class and Sharon across the road is always on hand should any problems arise. I arrived with my girlfriend and left with my fiancé during this stay so The Billiards Room will be forever in our hearts. Can't wait for our next visit. Cheers guys.

What an absolutely fabulous house! We stayed there before and after doing the Otago rail trail and the house easily accommodated our two families. Whilst not in the centre of Queenstown it really doesn't matter as there is everything you need in Frankton and its only a short drive/bus ride into town.

Views from the lounge over the lake are magnificent - especially at sunset. Some pubs and restaurants are nearby in Frankton and for those who prefer a bit more nightlife, Queenstown is a pleasant 8km walk along the lake front (or frequent bus (6), which runs until 4am!)
We stayed here primarily for the cricket held at Queenstown events centre which was a 10 minute walk from the property.

We have just returned from our Australia and NZ holiday and the Billard Room was our home from home whilst we were in Queenstown. All I can say is that you will not be disappointed. The place was immaculatly clean and had everything you would need for your stay. The garden was fantastic for my two small boys who loved exploring it, well that was when we couldnt tear them away from the cupboard of toys that were provided. Such a great touch when you are so far from home and you can't travel with all the kids favourites!
We will certainly be booking again for our next travels to NZ.

The snow was slow in coming -- but the house was fantastic! We'll hopefully be back next year.
