Top Eco-Tourism Accommodation Development Business for Sale Queenstown

This superb investment opportunity features an 11.4 ha property (approximately), which is situated only 25 minutes from Queenstown’s International airport.


  • The only commercially consented visitor accommodation on the crown range
  • RMA consent for an owner/manager to reside on the property
  • A significant property with a total land area of 11.4 ha (approx.)
  • Sensational private location featuring exquisite mountain and rural views
  • Well located, only 25 minutes to the International Airport
  • Option available to include a fully turn-key and completed accommodation project
  • A specifically-designed solar-electricity-system enables all five cottages to function completely off grid
  • Plus the option exists for the owner to remain a part-owner – contact Adrian for full details

This rare opportunity allows for the purchaser(s) to enter into a fixed price with the vendor, who owns Concept Builders, a highly respected local building company, to build 5 tourism accommodation eco-cottages on the property.

This investment may suit a group or family of investors, for example: 5 investors each investing $1,245,000 plus GST, to own this one of a kind eco-tourism accommodation complex on the crown Range, overlooking the Queenstown and the Gibbston Valley regions.


Kereru Eco Cottages are a 11.4 hectare (approx.) alpine retreat, with the accommodation being set within a private 6.5 (approx.) hectare bird sanctuary. Kereru has been purposefully designed to work in harmony with the environment. The five accommodation cottages look out over ponds and wetlands which feature native plantings and encourage an abundance of bird life. The private location is found down the ‘no exit‘ Eastburn Road on the Crown Range, and offers spectacular sun hours, along with stunning mountain and rural views. With two bedrooms consented for, in each of the self-contained accommodation units, consent is granted for up to 20 people per night, which is ideal for small groups, conference groups, or multiple families.

Kereru is planned to be ‘off grid’, each with its own power source, private water scheme and environmentally friendly septic/grey water disposal perfect for the growing eco-tourism model.


A new RMA Consent has come through, allowing an Owner or a Manager, to legally reside on the property, if they wish to – giving more flexibility for individuals, couple or families that are seeking a home and income based business in the Wakatipu Region.


An optional project development is available to the purchaser(s) for a fixed cost + GST, which has Resource Consent approval, and the turnkey development includes the following:

  • Architectural drawings, structural engineer and geotechnical engineer
  • QLDC fees
  • Base build is fixed due to RC conditions:
  • Units are cedar and stone cladding
  • Corrugate iron roof
  • T&G ply groove and plasterboard interior linings
