“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. 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.

  • Fabulous property and location is unequaled

    Fabulous property and location is unequaled. The access, via a steep unpaved road is a bit unnerving and once there we were reluctant to attempt the driveway at night. But why would you want to leave? We were happy to open a bottle of wine , light a fire and enjoy the view

  • The house is magnificent

    The house is magnificent. It is clean and beautiful and had everything we required. It is superbly comfortable. The views are out if this world. Take a stroll down to the edge of the lake. I could live there happily for the rest of my life :)

  • Very private property & location nice for couples to have

    Very private property & location nice for couples to have. Blinds need not go down as you can watch the sunrise from bedroom or lounge. Sun just streams in the living area feeling warm and cosy. Fire is fantastic to have a must for us. Nice drive into town to be in the middle of action then retreat to the Bach to listen to the water and nature.
