40 people to a property, eight people to a room: inside the nightmare that is renting in Queenstown

  • Queenstown is now no place to live.

Every ad for every rental property here produces a feeding frenzy that is not pretty to watch and shows no sign of improving. It’s a situation that Queenstown is increasingly ashamed of and it means that anyone even thinking of coming here to live without at least $1 million cash should maybe forget the idea and go somewhere easier – like London, Sydney or New York.
