Know these things before you book Little Paradise: 1. No wifi, and no cell reception 3. Solid 1/2 hour drive from Queenstown along a very very wind-y road 4. Unless you book "Fire of Romance," you could have to share a shower/toilet with 4+ other people 5. That shared bathroom is split between a toilet and a shower/sink, so if...

We had a one night stay at Little Paradise. We were warmly greeted by our host who showed us round the property and gave us a very welcome cup of tea. We stayed in the Fire of Romance room which has the advantage of being the only room with an ensuite bathroom. It was clean and the bed was very...

Stayed two nights by chance, as we booked accommodation late for Queenstown but luckily this place had vacancy and a reasonable price. A unique experience in a slice of paradise. Although for those who love technology this place is lacking; No reception, TV or wifi.

We stayed at this lodge for a night, wanted three nights but was fully booked. It is really an amazing place, not an average everyday lodge or BnB place. The bedrooms, toilet, bathroom, lounge and kitchen are all uniquely designed and decorated with stunning stone and wood artwork by Thomas. The garden is beautiful, on a slope with stunning views...

Others have fully described the uniqueness of this oasis. We were not staying here (Wish we had) but stopped to see the colourful gardens in late spring. The entrance fee included a nice coffee and cookies but then a bowl of fresh cherries appeared! The sculptures are beautifully thought out and built, almost invisible the way they match into the...

Family travelling to Glenorchy when we happened to discover this gem by chance. One of the most amazing gardens because of it's intricate and creative art pieces, and beautiful selection of flowers and plants. The warm hospitality of the owners/hosts was also incredible. We definitely recommend this place for overnight accommodation.

It was really welcoming. The inside and outside was filled with Thomas's amazing artwork which made the place so unique. We loved the beautiful gardens that were maintained so well and the beautiful birds especially the cute Paradise Duck babies! The views were amazing too. I have never seen a place with such amazing and creative ideas.

The most unique place you'll ever stay in! Kristy and Tom are such lovely hosts - so warm and welcoming. Tom is the most amazing artist. Their house and garden are overflowing with his original,environmental creations. It's hard to pick a favourite but the fishtank cistern is out-of-this-world. The place is in the middle of nowhere,so there is total tranquility,away...

If heaven was a place on earth, this would be it! The art work is incredible. The people are incredible. The area is lovely and quiet, perfect for a romantic get away. Perfect if you want to escape society and the real world. Here you can relax and enjoy what nature (and Thomas & Christy) Have to offer. If you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Almost every day we hear from our visitors that this place really deserves its name "little paradise". The house and its surrounding were created by its Swiss owner with great passion for the beauty of nature and life. He used natural materials from the nearby environment to express his inspiration and ideas. If you want to escape the square world, absorb new dimensions in the fairytale garden of little paradise. ... more   less
