Bill and Kari used to enjoy the high life, literally, working as crew on a Saudi prince’s private jet. Old habits die hard, though, and they’re still high, on a beautiful hillside property on the edge of Queenstown.....

.... Best place to admire the view is probably from one of the window-seats in a hugely relaxing guest lounge, toes warmed by the fire in winter, spirits soothed by one of the hordes of CDs. Once you’ve revived, there’s croquet and horseshoes outside; or a games room with a dartboard, a beautiful 19th-century billiard table and some eye-catching paraphernalia proudly displayed – each piece has a story. There are four luxurious suites with separate sitting-rooms, sleigh beds, chunky sofas, balconies, double sinks, entertainment systems – the list of positives is a veritable Mississippi. A Dallas designer with an eye for colour gave the rooms their character. The views are special from all the suites. Bill and Kari, charming Americans both, are so generous and relaxed you'll feel like you're staying with long-lost relatives. They even insist on offering breakfast (Bill’s ‘eggs on a cloud’ are not to be missed) whenever their guests want and will even serve you in bed, if floor-to-ceiling windows in the dining-room can’t tempt you. One last thing... the loo by the entrance hall, created by Kari’s mother, is one of the finest I’ve seen.
