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 immediately 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. There is no public transport to this location.

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.

  • Loved, loved, loved staying at Lakeside Maisonette

    Loved, loved, loved staying at Lakeside Maisonette. The house was well-outfitted and the views were spectacular. It was an easy drive to Queenstown, so we felt secluded without being too remote. Highly recommend!

  • This is a spectacular house

    This is a spectacular house. It was the nicest place we stayed in New Zealand and the perfect base for Queenstown. We found the town to be crowded with tourists (like us) and loud, and while the maisonette was only a few minutes out of town, it felt like another world. We spent hours looking out the floor to ceiling windows at the sunset over the lake and mountains. We had unusually hot weather and the house in turn got very warm. It is also very bright in the morning so bring a sleep mask.

    The property has the most beautiful views of Lake Whakatipu and is very private allowing us to escape the Queenstown hustle and bustle but be close enough for dinner and activities in town. The Maisonette is well equipped for a comfortable stay and the highlight is definitely the views from every room. Two small factors we would change are to add a blind to the bedroom glass door and the BBQ button for the gas to flow/flame to glow needed to be held while grilling. We would return for sure
