A big thank-you for your wonderful house. The location was amazing the views endlessly breathtaking…. the house well stocked and very comfortable just perfect for our family of five… it was welcoming to come home to after being out enjoying the snow and Queenstown. And we did get snow it was wonderfully magical especially for my 9-year-old daughter …
We would come back again. Thank you
Kirk Family – Australia – July 2013

Hi Linda, we had a great time at your house, thank you for making us so comfortable. It’s a lovely house with fabulous views. We loved the location – I’ve previously stayed in Queenstown and found it rather noisy on weekend nights but your house was in the perfect location, just a few minutes away from the hurly-burly and noise of town. We’d certainly stay again.
Scott and Lyndell – Dunedin – Easter 2013

Thank you Linda, bond received this morning…we very much enjoyed staying in your house – the weather and skiing were superb for the whole week”.
Rimmer family – NZ – July 2010

Hi Linda Just got back. Had a brilliant week in your lovely house. Weather was superb. Skiing was great and accommodation couldn’t have been better. Hope to use it again, if it is available and will pass the good word around”.

We thoroughly loved our time at McKerrow not wanting to ever leave this beautiful home. From every window are THE most spectacular views. We found everything we needed away from home; a fascinating library collection, a welcoming fridge with little touches of kindness & incredibly comfortable beds. Loved the spacious rooms, entertaining & outdoor areas to get lost in. We loved every minute of our stay and will be back! Thank you for making us feel so special!”
Scott and Erica, Sydney, Australia March 2008

Hi Linda, I just wanted to again thank you for the use of your beautiful home during our stay in Queenstown. Although we had a really great time in New Zealand, our stay in your home was the best of it! Just relaxing and looking at the beautiful view from any of the rooms of your home was really great therapy. You can, of course, use anything I have written for your website. Best.”

We really enjoyed the week at your home in April. It was a luxury to be so close to town yet so private with the council reserve below. The lake and mountain views were fantastic and we wished we could have stayed longer. Good luck with the jet boating.”
Paul and Kit Prebble

We stayed at this lovely home in November 2006 and truly enjoyed our stay. The home was much better than it looked in the web site and the views of the lake were fantastic. I am happy to recommend it”.
Peter and Julie Johnson, Jan 2007

Hi. The family has just returned from our NZ holiday having finished with a cruise in FIJI . Of all the great experiences we have had in the 10 weeks away, the 14 nights at Sunshine Bay was the best. The quality, style and delightful position of the home was a joy for us all. Our thanks for the very nice touch of the Christmas Tree and for the very good preparation throughout. I trust all was well after we left, as we were careful not to break anything. I was sorry to have missed you when you called and I thank you for caring. Cindy & I wish to thank the owners for a very special experience. Typical of New Zealand for sheer classical quality. Keep up the good work!! With our Best Wishes.”
Terry & Cindy Reeves, Hong Kong

Thank you very much for the use of your lovely home. We had a very relaxing stay and made the most of the new snow that arrived just in time for our holiday. The house was very warm and comfortable and we would love the chance to rent it again in the future.Thanks again”
Stefan Hakkaart & Christine van Betuw, New Zealand

Thank you very much for the use of your home this past week. We enjoyed our week skiing. We had 5 straight days, two at Coronet and three at Cardrona. We really loved the views in the house and the house was very warm and well stocked. The house has a warm atmosphere and a really good feeling to it. The fire was used daily as it was very cold despite beautiful sunny days. We had full days skiing and we didn’t get to spend as much time in the house as we would have liked. We loved your house and we will definitely recommend it to other people. We are returning for another weeks skiing and we found your place so easy that we would love another week there if possible.”
The Finch Family & Auckland, New Zealand

Hi Geoffrey and Linda – just got back last night from NZ, and my goodness! I can’t say enough about your beautiful house! Everything about it was geared toward comfort – fully equipped kitchen, plenty of linens and towels, PLENTY of firewood (which was wonderful, since we had snow Wednesday night!). And of course, the views. I am so glad to have chosen your house to stay in Queenstown, as it clearly was by far the best choice I could have made.”
