The Lakeside Maisonette is an idyllic holiday home secluded amongst native bush on the shores of Lake Wakatipu with magnificent views across the lake to the Remarkables, Cecil Peak, and Walter Peak. The property borders a Department of Conservation reserve, and there is a walking track along the lake shore imediately below the Maisonette.

Although it is only 6 km from Queenstown, the setting is beautiful and peaceful. You can hear the waves lapping on the lake shore.

The architecturally designed Maisonette is self-contained. Upstairs are a large living area with a small kitchen and a mezzanine platform. There is a wood burner for heating and the main window has a fly screen. A north-facing deck opens out from the living area. Downstairs are a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a bathroom with a washing machine. There is a heat pump in the bedroom and a fly screen on the bedroom window.

The house is perfect for a couple and is very popular as a honeymoon destination.

There is parking adjacent to the house. Please note there is an ethernet internet connection FOC. There is WiFi via a mobile Hotspot and this is user pays.

Special conditions: I take bookings up to 6 months in advance. There is a three night minimum stay, although a 2 night stay may be available - a small additional fee would be charged. I am happy to offer early check in and late check out at no additional cost if my other bookings permit. The house is perfect for a couple. Internet access via ADSL is included however Wifi is via a mobile Hotspot which is prepaid ie guests pay for their usage.

    What a fantastic place in an amazing spot! We have stayed and lived in many areas around Queenstown, and this spot is by far the best we have spent time in. We loved the secluded feeling, comfortable and spacious house, and of course, the amazing view. We can't wait to come back!

  • Immense place!! What a dream home

    Immense place!! What a dream home. We loved our morning dips in the lake followed by breakfast on the deck, afternoons and evenings also there or cosy by the fire. A peaceful haven of nature and a very private space, althou close to a few other residences. Only small negative for us was no sharp knives. We made all our meals there so impacted us a little. Otherwise it is impossible to find something negative about this place! Thank you!
