Shimmerlake Queenstown New Zealand. Coming soon!

With huge panoramic windows, this luxury modern villa exploits the sunshine as well as the pristine views of Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables Mountain Range and the nearby township of central Queenstown.

This 320 square metre villa is spread over three stories. Features include a large open plan living and dining area, home theatre, outdoor fire place and covered seating area, five bedrooms and a professionally equipped kitchen. Sleeping up to 8 people with plenty of space, this gorgeous villa is just perfect for a relaxing getaway with a group or with family.

Shimmerlake is situated on the Peninsula of Queenstown’s prestigious and sunny Kelvin Heights making it the ideal retreat where you can relax in privacy away from the hustle and bustle of central Queenstown; while also situating you an easy and quick water taxi ride or drive to the fine restaurants, world-class golf courses and the snow-capped mountains that the Wakatipu Basin has to offer.

All five bedrooms feature luxurious wool carpet, ample storage space and Sky TV — three have a private ensuite, and two share a large bathroom.

If a luxurious and peaceful retreat is what you are after for your Queenstown break, then you simply can’t beat Shimmerlake.

NOTE: Please be aware that that an adjoining apartment is also rented, however this is completely separate and you can still enjoy complete privacy.

WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

"The villa was magnificent. The view, amenities, location were all fantastic. The salt-water pool was a key reason for our stay there, and it worked out really well. The only small negative was that the villa to the north of us had a pretty clear view of our whole pool/dining area. It was definitely not quite as private as we had hoped, but that did not materially affect our enjoyment of the place. The service we got was great - Kate and the others at SMB were extremely helpful in our villa selection and throughout the whole process. The preparatory materials were helpful as were the concierge services. "
