Little Paradise Lodge


The Garden

The Little Paradise lifestyle block was originally the heart of the Mt. Creighton Station, from which it was subdivided some years ago. It is 28kms from Queesntown and 19kms from Glenorchy.

Located on Lake Wakatipu and only 20 minutes drive from Queenstown New Zealand, and Glenorchy New Zealand, Little Paradise Guesthouse offers relaxing accommodation situated in a beautiful garden with thousands of different flowers and several water features.We have over 40,000 daffodils, 3,000 roses and thousands of lilies! Some of our lilies stand over 4 metres tall!

The property has a bit of everything from flat land, which slopes up a gentle rise to flat terraces on the hill. There are mature native and exotic trees and a wide variety of fruits, nuts, berries and ornamental trees established. There is always something starting, something finishing - so you can come in any season.

A creek runs through the property, at the 45th Parallel South - meaning it is the same distance from here to the equator and the South Pole. We also have a pond and water feature decorating the garden.
