A wonderful stay. Well equipped kitchen, magnificent views of Queenstown, fabulous bathrooms and walk-in robes. The walk up and down the hill is great to walk off the delicious food and wine offered in town. That said, if you don’t want to walk the complimentery daily taxi voucher is there to use.

Room Tip: If it’s hot choose the downstairs bedrooms - very cool in summer if you want to sleep in

Hi Annie
Glad you enjoyed the walk into and back from town. Healthy living is where its at and bit of daily walking is a great way to work off the indulgences enjoyed whilst on holiday!
Theres nothing quite like whats on offer at Commonage Villas and the team at Staysouth are very passionate about these villas and what they offer our visitors.
Thanks for taking the time to post.

Kind regards
Andy and the Staysouth team

Excellent location, quiet, above town noise. Spacious, clean, modern. All the amenities you could want. Spent lots of time on the balcony enjoying the view. Request a unit on lower side of property, as the view is unobstructed. Walking trail to Queenstown Hill is right around the corner. This accommodation has to be one of the best in town. Only addition would be fans in each bedroom as the unit could get warm during the summer day. Management quickly brought more upon request. Perfect spot for multiple day stay. Also, trash capacity and some kitchen utensils were lacking. Coffee makers would be good addition. Had to boil water and make with French Press. Not a tragedy.

Room Tip: request unit on lower side of property. Views are spectacular and unobstructed

Hi Srex

Thanks for your lovely feedback.
We are continually looking at ways to improve the villas and use owners feedback forums as a valuable tool as how to upgrade amenities at the Commonage Villas.
This year Queenstown experienced a massive heatwave which started in October and heat records dating back to the early 1900's were surpassed. As a result fans became impossible to purchase and it became a constant juggling act to keep the temps down.
As a result of this we are going to recommend to all our owners of Commonage Villas (they are privately owned with the vast majority Managed by Staysouth.com) that we purchase and install heat exchange units which will provide airconditioning in the summer time.
If all is approved we would look to install these in May.
Thanks again

Kind regards
Andy and the Staysouth team

Spacious, luxury accommodation. Peaceful, yet only 10 /15 minute walk from town centre. Fabulous spot to watch the sun set over Lake Wakatipu. Our daughters - 19 and 13 - reckon it was the best family holiday we've had.

Dear zaracaro, thank you commenting on your stay at Commonage Villas.
So pleasing to read that your stay was the best family holiday you've had - wow!.
Many guests return because of the gorgeous views, and peace and quiet.
We provide complimentary daily return taxi vouchers to mitigate the hill for those who would rather not walk.
We appreciate all and any feedback as this assists future visitors and gives us valuable feedback so we may update where possible any of our services.
We hope you choose to stay with us again on your next visit.
Kind regards

This review is for Villa 3 and our stay was perfect which is a really big call for me to make. Villa 3 (and Villa 11) are managed by Sotheby’s and they have thought of literally everything. Queenstown can get a little rowdy and crowded over the Christmas break so being just that little bit out of town (5 minute walk downhill) was excellent. Another thing to mention is that, for once, the pictures online of the property match the reality. The Christmas tree was a lovely touch and very much appreciated. If I was able to pack this Villa up & take it with me, I would have. I run an interiors IG page and am SUPER fussy and some might even rudely say, hard to please so take this review as a mega endorsement. If you can afford it (and all things considered, it’s not too pricey as the Villa comfortably sleeps 6), I highly recommend a stay here so call Michelle at Sotheby’s to book yourself in. Immediately.

We were so pleasantly surprised by everything about this accommodation. The quality of the entire villa was outstanding we even had an internal elevator going from the garage to each of the three floors. The views from each floor over the lake could not be better. One piece of advice is the need for a car. The Villas are situated high on a hill so while going down into Queenstown is easy not so the return trip, it is a very steep climb

Dear Jack
Thanks for your 5 star review and we are glad that you were pleasantly surprised by the outstanding qualities of the villas.
Regarding the access we do also provide 1 x complimentary return taxi fare into Queenstown for each day of your stay via Green Cabs so if you prefer not to drive yourself or walk then you do have the taxi option.
Thanks again and we hope to have you come and stay again with us.

Kind regards
Andy and the team from Staysouth
