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.

    This place has by far the most amazing views! The floor to ceiling windows really help capture the beauty of Lake Wakatipu and the mountains. The house felt very cozy with heated beds, a fireplace, and a heated towel rack just to mention the few! The architecture of the home and its finish is just amazing!

    Was an absolutely amazing stay! The view is amazing and the location is brilliant. However if you have a big car, turning around down the bottom might be best as we were worried we were going to take out some of their lovely trees and fences hahaha. We had an amazing time though and the hosts were super lovely and helpful. Would definitely stay again!

  • This place is totally stunning

    This place is totally stunning. The views are amazing and the house is perfectly set up for a nice relaxing time, with nice areas to relax in. The kitchenette has just enough equipment to be able to cook up breakfast (while watching the sunrise) and a light dinner (watching the sunset) I also liked how nice and clean the Maisonette was while not smelling of strong cleaning products which made our visit 100% perfect. We look forward to returning next year as I can't get enough of this place.
