“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 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.

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.

    We arrived late, it was dark, so we woke to the most spectacular view of the mountains. With the heat pump in the bedroom and the stove fire upstairs, the bach is toasty warm in no time. The bed is very comfortable, good quality linen. The shower has one of the best views in the bach, there isn't really a bad view anywhere. You will need a car if you stay here, it's very private and so quiet. The occasionally plane or boat going by. Highly recommend this place, my husband and I will return.
