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.

  • Staying at the Lakeside Maisonette is a dream

    Staying at the Lakeside Maisonette is a dream... with its million-dollar view, convenient location to Queenstown, and beautiful interior design. We enjoyed spending hours just taking in the view in the day and gazing at stars at night. Everything is clean and lovingly maintained; a perfect & romantic getaway. Thank you Christine and Marc!

  • Stunning position and lovely house

    Stunning position and lovely house. Need to come prepared - with pantry needs, soap, shampoo etc. Very few consumables supplied. Tv small and Wifi expensive. Great for digital detox. Small hot water supply so need to be aware. All in all a lovely getaway

    Owner/manager responds:

    Actually, hot water is heated by gas on demand. If hot water runs out, switch to a new gas bottle, this is very easy and explained in the information provided in the house.
