The panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains from each and every picture window are undoubtedly some of my favorite views in Queenstown

Location & Directions

Queenstown, New Zealand

Commonage Villas are located on Kerry Drive at Queenstown’s most prestigious address, Queenstown Hill, overlooking Lake Wakatipu. A short 10-minute stroll will bring you into the heart of Queenstown.

When to go

The climate in New Zealand is incredibly pleasant, with warm and balmy summers and cold crisp winter months with wonderful clear, blue skies. The warmer high-season months of November to April are perfect for outdoor exploration. The colder months of June to August are the best time to ski.

Both North and South Islands are drier on the east coast, rather than on the west, where mountain ranges act as a trap for the moisture-rich winds from the Tasman Sea. It is also worth remembering that it is usually a few degrees cooler on the South Island than the North Island and as New Zealand has a maritime climate, the weather can change rapidly.
