Traveling for two months in New Zealand and Australia, Jewel on Speargrass is absolutely our favourite place, were we spent Easter Holidays with Australian friends. Wonderful and cosy house, lovely garden, and situated not far away from beautiful Queenstown with a lot of activities. A perfect holiday place! We would love to come back.

Management response:

What a wonderful compliment; we're truly flattered that Jewel on Speargrass was a highlight of your NZ and Australian travels. Thank you so much for staying with us and also for taking the time to leave a review. All the best! Kind regards, Margaret & Abi

We had an amazing 4 days in this magical location, ringed by snow-capped mountains. The house was quiet, cozy and comfortable - snuggling up in front of the log fire after a day in the cold was wonderful. The absolute highlight was waking up to find that it had snowed overnight, our girls were overjoyed! We hope to visit again.

Management response:

Wow! Thanks so much for such a nice review and we're delighted to hear that you had a wonderful stay. You all were lovely guests and we'd love to welcome you back anytime. Thanks again and Kind regards, Margaret and Abi

Well what can I say, we had a beautiful time at Jewel on Speargrass. It was the perfect accommodation to finalise wedding arrangements leading up to our wedding. It was an ideal location to get to Thurlby Domain (next property), Peregrine Winery (18 min drive) and gatherings in Queenstown (15 min drive), Arrowtown (10 min drive) and trips to Queenstown...

Management response:

On behalf of the owner, myself and the whole team thank you so much! We very much appreciate you taking the time to leave a detailed and helpful review. We're delighted that our accommodation worked so well with your wedding week and we have loved seeing your wedding photos. Congratulations again from all of us; what a stunning day you...
