Boasting stunning views across the Wakatipu Basin, Kumanu is a fabulous retreat yet located just 25 minutes drive from Queenstown's vibrant town centre. With views that encompass the Remarkable Mountain range through to the turquoise blue of Lake Wakatipu, you have some the most beautiful scenery in New Zealand on your doorstep.
The design of the 550m2 Crown Range house utilizes every opportunity to showcase the mountains and valleys beyond as if they were paintings on walls. The style combines rustic Central Otago bold statements with accents of art deco flair. The combination feels timeless and elegant yet is so comfortable that you may never want to leave.
Every room provides a feeling of serenity and calm yet draws you in seamlessly to the landscape. From the airy dining room with its ambient fire place, to the open chef's kitchen, which adjoins a cosy lounge.
Everything has been considered from a fantastic home entertainment system, to a large spa pool. Whether socializing or relaxing with a good book there are spaces for every mood and moment!

Reviews of Kumanu
One word: Fabulous!
Kumanu Lodge is set in the most stunning location, half way up Crown Range Road with 360 degree views up to mountains and down to the lake at Queenstown. The house itself is of the highest standard of design and fixtures - it's the sort of place you would expect Hollywood a-Listers to rent so it isn't cheap. I should add that if you want to be within easy reach of a pint of milk/shops, then it is a trek. But take lots of supplies with you, hole up and enjoy the views from the hot tub and relax.

Grand, beautifully appointed, secluded, base with stunning views, just outside Queenstown
Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful place. Was far more than we expected, as it was grand and obviously designed for people accustomed to such levels of comfort/design... We embraced our home for the 5 days and loved it - such a treat to sit in the hot tub after a long day exploring the area and look out over the amazing view.

My family and I stayed at the beautiful “Kumanu” property managed by a Touch of Spice. From the beginning to the end of our stay we have had nothing but an amazing experience. The staff were informative, professional and very helpful before we even arrived at the property, whilst we were at the property the team followed up a number of times to see if we needed anything and when we did they were very quick to respond. The house was immaculate and will forever hold a special spot in our hearts. I will definitely be staying in a touch of spice accommodation again given this experience. Thanks team for making our last 3 days amazing!! Xx
