What do you get when you cross a 5 star luxury home with an Aston Martin and a Porsche??

An awesome QWA members catch-up of course!!

Despite having to combat the Kawarau bridge at 5pm and it being a school night, we were greeted with 36 beautiful QWA members and a whole lotta cheese and wine for the summer catch-up! Fabulous numbers considering its smack bang in the middle of silly season!

Members Catchup

Our breath-taking venue was Lakeside Luxury which boasts magnificent views of the Frankton Bay of Lake Wakatipu and 180 degree mountain views taking in Ben Lomond, Bob’s Peak, Queenstown Hill, the Crown Range and more.

This was the perfect place to catch up on all things wedding whilst devouring some amazing Antipasto platters by Reaward Fresh!

With the weather on our side, we were able to enjoy the inside-out alfresco design of the house, opened right up to allow the warm evening breeze in. As it’s been a few months since our last gathering, the chatter and friendly buzz was heard from the road, and made for a warm and welcoming arrival to our new members!

With a total of 18 houses, Relax it’s Done have the most outstanding portfolio of luxury holiday homes in the Queenstown area.  They have a range of modern and central hillside villas, lakefront homes, semi-rural living and a charming countryside cottage.  All their homes are fully self-contained, sophisticated, beautifully furnished and equipped with all you need to relax, entertain and enjoy with great outdoor areas. This includes free WiFi, luxurious linens – and most importantly spectacular views of Queenstown’s famous scenery.

Holiday homes are a fantastic option for out-of-town wedding guests, brides and grooms, honeymooners and several properties are suitable for intimate wedding ceremonies and/or receptions.

Sit a couple of sexy supercars on the drive and there you have it – the perfect recipe!

Thanks to the lovely ladies from Ignition Self Drive Adventures, we were allowed to marvel over their supercars, hear the purr of the engines and even pose like superstars behind the wheel!
