“2013 Silver Winner Golden Piwa Awards" BEST IN LOCATION!

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. 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. Wifi is via a mobile Hotspot which is prepaid ie guests pay for their usage.

  • Stunning location overlooking Lake Wakatipu yet total privacy and tranquility

    Stunning location overlooking Lake Wakatipu yet total privacy and tranquility. Magnificent views from every room including the bathroom.

  • This property is absolutely beautiful

    This property is absolutely beautiful. It is obvious that it was carefully and thoughtfully designed to allow a person to experience the beauty of the surroundings. It is the perfect size for a couple. Although the owners' home is nearby, it has a feeling of perfect privacy. The kitchen is a bit austere, but it has everything you really need. We have done many vacation rentals, and this is the most beautiful property we've seen on our travels.

    Excellent location for exploring the Queenstown area and the views from the property can't be beaten!

  • Amazing location, perfect spot, secluded and quiet

    Amazing location, perfect spot, secluded and quiet. What a stunning view! Very warm and cozy. [[Only ways it could be improved would be some tea bags/basic condiments and a better TV (not that you should really use it, given the fire and the view!).]] Highly recommend +++

  • The accommodation and the views were lovely

    The accommodation and the views were lovely. Above my expectations. Great location, peaceful and scenic, a very short drive from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown.
