Relax It’s Done have done it again with Papillon, a beautiful home overlooking Lake Wakatipu. I had the chance to have a bath, relax in luxury and gaze out to the lake on my first night alone away from the family. Bliss!
Papillon is set back against Queenstown Hill and is a short walk into town and all it’s secrets. Meander up the trails behind or settle back into the coziness of the hidden cinema room nestled in the bottom layer of the house. A completely perfect place to turn off your phone and watch your favourite James Bond (mine- Roger Moore of course).
I had the opportunity to stay here on my own but get your family over for the weekend and argue over the best bedrooms (note *they’re all good*). Want to settle in for some skiing? This place has the best drying/ laundry room I’ve ever seen.
Relax It’s Done are there for your every whim. Want a chef to greet you at the door making his best Duck a l’Orange? It’s done. Want the fridge stocked with goodies so you can stay in the cinema room all weekend and not leave? Sorted. They have everything little thing on their list as does this house.
I meandered through the kitchen looking for a lovely glass for my first sip of Pinot Noir and I couldn’t believe how well organised this place was. Literally every piece needed to bake, create and spend your weekend entertaining your guests in this kitchen that literally pops with colour. Wine fridge. Did I mention a wine fridge?! Coffee maker and every type of coffee for that post ski/ night out in town wake you up? Right there.
Sleeping six (with 7/8 on request) there’s two massive (and I mean massive I-got-lost-in-it) bath tubs with spa. Gazing out to the lake as you lie back and enjoy the peace and tranquility whilst only being 15 minutes walk to town.
And because I’m me and can’t stop working there was a lovely desk set up in the master bedroom with all the things you need to get the job done. Whilst gazing out into the view of course.
Netflix, commissioned artwork, internal lift, surround sound, outdoor furniture and bbq, gas fire for cozy snowy evenings with your loved ones and cinema watching luxury. I did NOT want to leave this place and get home to my loved ones. I did but I didn’t and if you stay here you’ll completely agree with me.
The most perfect ski, trail walking, town loving, cinema watching, cozyness house you could ever come by.
Relax people. It’s done.
