Roy and Tamaki are your hosts at the historic rural Willowbrook Country Apartments accommodation. An 'international' couple, they arrived in the Queenstown area in the early nineties and began working in different aspects of the hospitality industry, Roy in accommodation at Millbrook Resort and Tamaki in the activities field with local ski package holiday supplier, Ski Express.
It wasn't long before they decided to establish their own accommodation operation and in 1995, they bought the homestead of Willowbrook. In a delightful rural setting below Coronet Peak, Willowbrook comprised a large farmhouse and several rundown outhouses in four acres of land. So began a long process of renovation (and in some cases rebuild …) Today the original House of Willowbrook having recently been converted into 4 fully self contained apartments, boasts 'centre stage' among the renovated outhouses which have been transformed into comfortable self contained ski accommodation and the land is now mature garden.
Roy and Tamaki often reside in one of the apartments in the Main House of Willowbrook, a short distance from The Cottage, Hideaway Studios and The Barn. Should you need advice on the many things to see and do in the exciting Wakatipu region or maybe directions to Queenstown or Arrowtown or Milford Sound - whatever it is, simply wander over to the Main House and they will be more than happy to help you. Failing that, they are always contactable by phone (you will find a contact number in the Information Folder in each of the apartments).
Willowbrook is an accredited booking agent for most of the local tour and activity operators enabling guests to plan their own itineraries from the comfort of their accommodation. Roy and Tamaki have 'sampled' many of these Queenstown tours and activities and along with their extensive local knowledge, can offer constructive advice helping you to get the most out of your Queenstown & Gold mining area of Arrowtown experience.
