Welcome to Lake Vista Bed and Breakfast offering friendly home style accommodation in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Queenstown is the activity capital of New Zealand and best of all, at Lake Vista Bed and Breakfast you will enjoy magnificent 180 degree views of Lake Wakatipu and the "Remarkables" Mountains. For those that don't know, Queenstown and its surroundings were the filming sites for Middle Earth featured in "The Lord of the Rings".

Accommodation in Queenstown comes in many forms, but bed and breakfast accommodation is becoming much more popular due to the more personal contact with New Zealanders.

At Lake Vista, all guest accommodation features under-floor heating, personal safety deposit boxes, hairdryers, colour TV and radio alarm clocks along with tea & coffee making facilities. Continental or cooked breakfast is provided.

Lake Vista Bed and Breakfast is very conveniently situated on Queenstown Hill, walking distance from town and 5 minutes from the airport. We overlook the Frankton Arm of Lake Wakatipu across to the Remarkables ranges. Courtesy transport to and from airport or bus terminal is available.

Views of Lake Wakatipu and the "Remarkables" Ranges are not only from the lounge at Lake Vista, but also from all guest rooms.

We look forward to seeing you in Queenstown.

What To Do:

What's to do in Queenstown?

  • Skiing
  • Fishing
  • Wineries
  • Skydiving
  • Jet Boating
  • River Rafting
  • Guided walks
  • Scenic Flights
  • Lake Cruising
  • Bungy Jumping
  • 4WD adventures

As part of their New Zealand travel, at some stage, most people come to Queenstown. Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown is the southern hemisphere's finest four season alpine and lake resort.

World renowned Queenstown is at once breathtakingly beautiful and intensely exciting. Established and sophisticated, the range of outdoor activities and adventures here is unsurpassed.

A one or two day stay in this beautiful environment can leave one frustrated for more time, whereas three or four days permit a much more satisfying experience. Those visitors on their New Zealand travel lucky enough to enjoy Queenstown over one or two weeks invariably find that they have the time of their life and can't wait to return!

Queenstown is a year round destination with so many outdoor activities to keep everybody occupied. Even if you stayed for a month, you would not be able to cover everything. However, the biggest mistake one can make is not leaving enough time to at least cover some of what there is to do in and around Queenstown. Many people return here time and time again.

The list of outdoor activities is almost endless and while here, journey through Middle Earth to some of the Lord of the Rings filming locations. As they say, New Zealand is Middle Earth.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us as we will be glad to help assist you in the planning of your Queenstown vacation.

Queenstown truly is The "Jewel in the Crown" of New Zealand Tourism.

Middle Earth - Lord of the Rings:

When JRR Tolkien created Middle-Earth, little did he know the magical landscapes of his imagination actually existed, here in New Zealand, 12,000 miles away from his homeland.

It took Peter Jackson 10 years and millions of dollars to bring The Lord of the Rings to life on the big screen. Nomad Safaris have been taking people there every day for the past 12 years. Indeed, when David Gatward-Ferguson, owner of Nomad Safaris, first gazed across Skippers Canyon all those years ago, he instantly felt he was looking at 'The Road to Mordor'.

Many of the areas that a Nomad Safaris tour visits provide the spectacular backdrops to much of the action in Peter Jackson's 'The Fellowship of the Ring'; The Ford at Bruinen, The Misty Mountains, Isengard and Lothlorien, better know locally as Skippers Canyon, Macetown and Paradise, to name a few.

Join a Nomad Safari on a special adventure tailored to include some of the locations used for significant scenes in the film, or take a scheduled tour that includes a taste of those sights. Prepare to be amazed.

Nomad Safaris operate 4WD tours into the heart of New Zealand high country: the embodiment of the Middle-Earth of Tolkien's imagination. The 'Safari of the Rings' tour is a scenic charter that gives a spectacular look at the diversity of the scenery in the area.

It is based around several of the specific sites where filming took place. These are real places; there are no film sets; they are areas of outstanding natural beauty that need no enhancement. Here it is possible to experience the magical atmosphere captured in the film.

Milford Sound:

A visit to Queenstown is incomplete without a trip to Milford Sound, one of the world's most scenic areas. Let yourself be captured by the breathtaking and awe inspiring views that can only be experienced from the air.

Milford Sound Scenic Flights: is one of the region's most experienced flight-seeing operators, flying visitors to and from Milford Sound for over 18 years. All of their passengers have a window seat for uninterrupted viewing and their experienced pilots provide an informative commentary, highlighting points of interest along the way.

Milford Sound Scenic Flights have scenic flights from both Queenstown and Milford Sound, or why not truly experience the magic of Milford Sound with one of their flight combos, which includes a coach trip and cruise on Milford Sound with the flight. Coaches leave every day from Queenstown and we are able to drop you off in time for your coach in the morning and pick you up from the Airport afterwards. They also have a range of charter flight options available including flights to Mount Cook and/or the glaciers.

The Milford Road:

Leaving Te Anau and heading north you follow 120 km of tar-sealed road to the majestic Milford Sound. It is one of the world's finest alpine drives. It can take approximately 2 hours without allowing for stops. Numerous short walks and scenic views can be enjoyed along the road which takes you from the green grass of lowland pastures through stands of native bush and finally into the rocky, mountainous area around the Homer Tunnel - gateway to Milford Sound. From the Homer Tunnel you are met with your first views of Mitre Peak towering from the glassy waters of Milford Sound.

Milford Sound:

Milford Sound is the most famous and accessible of the fiords. It is also the only one that can be accessed by road. Boat trips on the Sound are a must and allow sightings of dolphins and seals and provide close up views of the awesome scenery - including such highlights as Bowen Falls and Sterling Falls - both falling well over 140 metres. It is approximately 16km from the head of the fiord to the open sea.


There are many wineries around Queenstown, however currently the two biggest are Gibbston Valley Winery and Chard Farm. Both situated near the old Kawarau Bridge where AJ Hackett Bungy operate their original jump site.

Gibbstown Valley is New Zealand's leading wine tourism experience, featuring an award winning winery, picturesque vineyard restaurant and wine cave complex. Situated just 20 minutes from Queenstown (1 km past the A.J. Hackett Bungy Bridge) they are the most visited winery in New Zealand (they welcome more than 150,000 visitors each year). Since the release of their first wine in 1987, Gibbston Valley Wines have won more than 130 awards, nationally and internationally for their quality boutique wines. In the 2001 London International Wine Challenge, the Gibbston Valley 2000 Reserve Pinot Noir won the Trophy for the best Pinot Noir in the world!

Your Hosts:

Lake Vista Bed & Breakfast and Homestay in Queenstown is run by Lucille & Graeme Simpson.

We have moved to Queenstown from Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand after running an import and distribution business for many years.

Travelling to trade fairs and buying goods for the company has taken us to many places around the world in the past, but we decided it was time for a change.

We enjoy meeting new people and travelling ourselves. So we look forward to seeing you soon and helping to make your holiday to Queenstown, New Zealand a very memorable experience.

If there are any questions regarding Queenstown or New Zealand, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are only too pleased to help.


We are just off the main road approximately 5 minutes from the airport at Frankton.

  • Turn right into Hensman Road (7th right along main road from airport) and we are at number 62 - up the Hill.
  • Only 2 minutes from central Queenstown.
