“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. 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.

  • Lakeside Maisonette was an amazing place to stay

    Lakeside Maisonette was an amazing place to stay. It is beautifully designed and felt much larger than it actually was topped off with incredible views. I would highly recommend a stay there.

  • Beautiful location, easy drive from Queenstown but you definitely need a car

    Beautiful location, easy drive from Queenstown but you definitely need a car. House very secluded with stunning views. Fantastic morning sun which fills the whole upstairs and makes it hard to want to go out!

  • WOW!!!! What a view

    WOW!!!! What a view. Wonderful romantic peaceful hide-away. Close enough to town to pop in for the action but far enough away to feel you were alone. Everything exactly as on web site and loved the fresh flowers. Even the evening power cut was a lovely experience- pasta and mulled wine by firelight. Doesn't get much better than this. Thankyou!!!
