Maxwell Place

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 8, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

22B Maxwell Place $295 - $350 per night (3-5 night min) Queenstown, Otago 9300 New Zealand

What’s really GOOD about Maxwell Place:
1. Alpine family home: tonnes of character + comfort!
2. Panoramic views, decking, close to town
3. Flexible configuration, including a bunkroom attic.

Maxwell Place is the kind of vacation rental where holiday memories are made. Its alpine, almost rustic feel is at one with Queenstown’s adventurous spirit, while modern finishes such as the kitchen and bathrooms lend an easy comfort to the holiday-maker.

Location: tucked hillside on lower Queenstown Hill moments from downtown, this area is renowned for its panoramic views around Lake Wakatipu, over to Kelvin Heights and the Remarkables. Maxwell Place is magnificently placed to take in the vistas.

Interior: a wood finish gives Maxwell Place tonnes of warmth and character, while strategically placed windows bring in maximum light. Guests will enjoy taking in the view whether they’re dining, bathing or lying in bed.

Upstairs, the wooden beamed attic room is an ideal haven for children or additional guests, including bean bags, TV & DVD player!

Exterior: extensive decking around the holiday home adds to the indoor-outdoor flow and helps bring nature indoors.

Parking: the drive-on car port makes parking easy and convenient.

    Ann H from Vista, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed almost a week in this great home. Incredible views that went on and on. I could have stayed in a chair (or bed) and just looked out the window the whole time we were here, but seriously, it's Queenstown, there is way too much to do! The house was cosy and cabin like, very comfortable, we felt right at home. The beds were very comfortable, the heating excellent, the hot water perfect, and of course the view is amazing. The instructions to get in and check out were very easy. Washer and dryer was a huge bonus for weary (and dirty) travelers and explorers. Can't recommend this home enough, I'd return in a heartbeat.

    Stayed for 1 week to attend family wedding. Easy check in/out. No requirement to attend rental office. Key in drop box upon arrival/departure. Very clean, comfortable and cosy with absolutely BEAUTIFUL VIEWS. Well suited to whole family. Grandparents had own ensuite, separate room for parents and teen boys upstairs loft. Everything we needed. Cosy fire, handy 3rd toilet. Close to airport and town. Would happily recommend and would stay again.

    Owen D from Cabarlah, Qld recommends this vacation rental

    This property was perfect for our stay. The view was stunning and amazing to wake up to every morning. Holidaying with our son, his wife and two young children ages 5 and 7 the house provided two queen size beds with each room having its own bathroom. The children were excited about sleeping up on the third floor and the extra toilet was very handy also. Very warm home with plenty of heating options available - at no time were we cold - and everything you would want for comfort was supplied. Very handy to town - we did have a rental car. The children were delighted to be able to help light the fire every evening - they live in a very warm climate - plenty of wood supplied. Staying in such a great home made our stay most enjoyable. Would highly recommend to other families. Hope to be able to stay here at some time again in the future.

    David N from Speers Point, NSW recommends this vacation rental

    I rented this property in Maxwell Place to house the family who had gathered for a Queenstown wedding. Facilities were great, beds were comfortable, water was hot and strong and the view downright stunning!!

    The property is very clean and was quite capable of supporting our team of eight. Town is but a short walk away and the carport can accommodate a (small) car!

    We liked it that much that the team wants to make it an annual thing!!

    • Manager Responded on 10/6/2016

    Jodi S from Aongatete, Auckland recommends this vacation rental

    This is a beautiful home, it made us feel welcome and comfortable. I wished that we could stay longer at this property. You can tell a loving family own and look after this property which makes it that much more personal and beautiful.
    The home is big with very spacious and comfortable rooms. The bathrooms are also very big and nice to use.
    The views at this house are spectacular! However, I thought it was closer to the main centre of town which it is not. The views definitley make up for this down fall.

    Thank you very much for the use of your beautiful home, we had a lovely stay.

    • Manager Responded on 9/19/2016

      Dear Jodi, Thank you so much for taking the time to complete such a lovely review of Maxwell Place. This property certainly is a special one, with the fantastic views and the real alpine home feel it's a great option when visiting Queenstown. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future. Best regards, Goodstays

    Absolutely fantastic rental up high on the hills of Queenstown! You could just stay and look at the views for the whole time.. Very modern and comfy stay with every possible add ons.. books, games, dvds, gadgets etc.. Absolutely perfect for 6-8 people.. I will stay here every year.. Nice walk to town too and a little bit of excercise on way up as up on hill but i enjoyed it.. Cant say enough of how great our stay was..

    Kim T from Mt.Beauty, Victoria recommends this vacation rental

    We booked this property to use over Xmas. The home was perfect for our family gathering. It is an older building with amazing views over the lake. Having 2yr old twin grandchildren, we felt relaxed that they could not do any 'damage'. There was plenty of room for us to spread-out over the 3 floors, and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils for easy self-catering! It is within walking distance to central town, although there are some hills to climb!! With the wonderful selection of restaurants in town, you will never go hungry. There is an open carport. We were a bit confused about the small availability of rubbish/recycling facilities. Otherwise I fully recommend this property for a comfortable, easy care holiday.

The house itself had all the amenities you could ask for and whilst some of the furniture may seem dated it actually adds to homey feel :) to sit by the fire at night and play uno was truly memorable and filled our nights with laughter and memories! we would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to our friends!

    Sarah C from Auckland, Auckland recommends this vacation rental

    Had a wonderful week in Queenstown staying here. The house is good for a group of around 6 or 7 adults as the 8th has to sleep on a rollaway bed and there really isnt seating for everyone to be comfortable in the lounge.. perhaps a few beanbags or another couch would be good to add? Very clean and towels/linen supplied which makes thing easy. Only issue with maintenance is that the upstairs deck leaks into the dining area and the ensuite shower leaks into the lounge - should probably be fixed soon due to mold forming. Also the heat pump filter could do with a clean it looks pretty blocked up. Apart from those things its a pleasant place to stay, approx 20 min walk (up/down stairs also) but the views are worth it :) Thanks for having us!

    This place has an amazing view! You couldn't expect better. Although the place is getting a little old, it just adds character! The fireplace is definitely it's finest feature. It is situated a little out of town, but a $13NZD maxi cab is worth it.

      Dear Stacey, thank you for your feedback and great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Maxwell place. As popular as Maxwell Place is the owners are laying new carpet down as well updating a few other areas in the house to keep it well maintained going into Summer. Please contact us next time you plan a stay to beautiful Queenstown.

    a guest from Te Awamutu, Waikato recommends this vacation rental

    The house is in a great spot with amazing views over the lakes and mountains and we enjoyed our stay here very much and would highly recommend it for a larger group or family. The number on letterbox does not match details given in description of property and the photos displayed on website are a little misleading. The carpet is quite heavily marked and one or two of the dining chairs are in need of repair (one cant be used at all) and some maintenance needs to be done on the property like weeding and general tidying up of woodwork on sills etc. None of this affects the stay at all it is just cosmetic. The only let down is the small parking space for larger groups as you have to park a second car further up the road from the property. Overall though our stay was lovely and I found Nick our property manager to be very helpful and we would happily stay here again.

    • Manager Responded on 2/22/2015

      Dear Lee, thank you for your feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay with us in Queenstown! Our property manager has made a note of a few maintenance issues due to general wear and tear and will be fixed ASAP. We look forward to hearing from you next time you plan a visit to Queenstown!

    The house was perfect for our large family. It was extremely clean, beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of extra bedding and heating when it got chilly. The view from the dining area, lounge, main bedroom and ensuite was stunning. It is an easy 20 minute walk into the centre of Queenstown. The only slight negative was that there was a bit more wear and tear than we expected from the photos - carpet in the lounge was clean but very marked and a lot of the wood trim around doors and windows was water stained and looking a bit tired. But, if you're not picky about such things, I'd highly recommend the house.

    As a family we wanted a house for rent in the queenstwon area and Maxwell place worked really well for us. It was clean and tidy and the bedrooms were spacious. The only downside was the distance into town - but we had a car so it didn't impact us. It is walkable - about 20 minutes one way.
    The family room was a little small for 6 people - not enough couch space, however we were out a lot so it didn't matter.
    Overall really enjoyable and would stay there again. Great value for money.
