This place is on the main road from Queenstown to Glenorchy (a scenic journey in itself). We found it by accident and spent a delightful hour wandering through extensive gardens, enchanted by the quirky art created by the owner, the beautiful birds and plants, and the glimpses through foliage of the crystal blue lake. It is the essence of peace....

This garden and home are the life's work of the artist and his wife who live here, and it is located in one of the world's most beautiful natural settings on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. I can't say enough about how special this place is. It should be the centerfold of a hundred gardening and art magazines by now....

I booked this place for my photography trip because it is in the middle of Queenstown and Glenorchy. (I'm only an amateur photographer) I knew that there were no wifi or TV or meals before I went. It didn't bother me at all because of my trip purpose. I traveled alone to find the beauty of Glenorchy and Paradise. And...

We were told about this place by a lady in Queenstown who said it was a place we must visit. It is 26km from Queenstown on an excellent road with breathtaking views. We stopped 4 times to take photos. The mountains in the background are scenes from The Lord of the Rings movies. Thomas owns this place with his partner...

This place is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. A true national NZ treasure. Part of its appeal is its complete disconnection from the harried everyday worries of life. Yes, there is no wifi; nor is there cell phone coverage. Come here to be "off the grid" and feed your soul by soaking in the beauty of the space that the owners...

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...

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
