Winter family getway!
Just had a fantastic winter get away with the family of 5 (1 toddler and 2 young children)!
Despite the -8 degree mornings it was spectacular with frosty sunny days. The cottage is very well heated and cozy; the children loved the 3-tier bunk; there is plenty of exploring on the property and was lots of playing with icicles and frost. Having a whole house and safe section made a winter holiday much easier with busy children. And it was great to get them to bed and enjoy local wine by the fire!
The location allows very easy access to both Queenstown, Arrowtown and the ski field. There is lots to do and see.
I would love to come back in the summer and have a longer break as it would be great just pottering at the property and enjoying everything there is to do there. DonnaMC72 Dunedin, New Zealand Reviewed 13 July 2015
Serenity, beauty, charm, heritage and the perfect location!Our family really loved staying at Jewel On Speargrass. It was our 8th trip to NZ in the past 5 years and absolute favourite accommodation experience for our family so far. It was the absolute highlight of our trip to Queenstown this winter! We played board games by the fire and charades in the majestic gold chair. We ran around outside in the snow! We strengthened our bond as a family with books and talking. Thank you. Jewel On Speargrass is magnificent. The attention to detail is beautiful and the beds are super comfortable! It is perfectly located, centred between Coronet Peak Ski field, historic Arrowtown and vibrant Queenstown. TheTurner Family Caloundra, Australia Reviewed 23 July 2015
Perfect views and beautiful house Everything from the moment we got in touch was perfect and would highly recommend staying here. The views of the surrounding mountains are so beautiful and this made for the perfect winters escape. Reviewed 17 June 2017 Dirk F
A enchanting family escape 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. Salveo Auckland, New Zealand Reviewed 3 August 2017

Did you know Tom Cruise flew his own Helicopter, while Acting & being Filmed amongst our mountains? Filming Mission Impossible 6 in June 2017, -3 temperatures didn't slow him down! The degree of difficulty & the realism it brings is mind-blowing! Cruise went to Airbus to learn how to be a helicopter pilot, racking up his 2000-hour flight time in a very short amount of time. Cruise is already a pilot of planes, but when you consider that the end result is Tom Cruise piloting a helicopter with no one else in it, doing ridiculous aerial stunts all by himself, it’s pretty insane!
