Host has 100% 5-star reviews (11 for the single room, 4 for entire home.)
Please see all the reviews.

This secluded, lakeside retreat has 2 ensuite queen bedrooms and a queen bed loft. 2 lounges, fireplace, TV, decks, laundry, office space & wi-fi, fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and a great spa tub -- ALL with glorious mountain and lake views.

A 3-10 minute drive to central Queenstown (traffic depending), or a lovely 3km, flat, lakeside walk on Frankton Walkway.

The space

What has always been a draw for guests, has been the intimacy with the lake via the jetty and the views from every window. In addition the house feels secluded and quiet yet it is just minutes from the energy of Queenstown via walking track, public transportation or car. It will feel like a welcoming respite, not a hotel room.

Guest access

The whole house!

Interaction with guests

Other things to note

Best holiday ever. Beautiful warm house. Breathtaking views. Close to town but far enough away for peace and quiet. One of my favorite things about the location was the proximity to the Remarkables. We caught the hotel bus each day and because we were on the edge of town we didn't have to wait while we picked up everyone from all the hotels in town! We got on the bus and went straight up the mountain! We'll be back for sure.

As a frequent visitor to Queenstown, I have never stayed anywhere more perfect. The house is comfortable, beautiful and user-friendly. The views from every spot are sensational. The kitchen is outstanding (we had a great dinner with a few foodie friends). The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable. The house is ideally situated on the lake, with the mountains in the background -- and a perfect distance from the center of town, giving one the option for a serene, heavenly retreat, or a leisurely walk along the lake to all the Queenstown action. Laura, our host, was as gracious and helpful as you would want. I'm thrilled to know I don't have to search Queenstown for anywhere else to stay on my future trips. I've found the spot and will be back.

Spectacular home away from home, ideal location and so comfortable for our family of 5. Views were incredible and the house was spotless! We did a fair bit of sightseeing and on the last day we all voted to just relax at "home" in our perfect surroundings. If we are fortunate to return to Queenstown I would totally book this home again. Thanks Leslie, Jen and Dan .

Great holiday home, beaitiful surroundings, right on the lake, takes about 45 min walk into town, during peak traffic takes about 15min to drive, and lovely pristeane home

Response from Leslie:
Oh dear, I hope no one thinks I was mis-representing the walk into town. The Frankton Walkway is only 3km to town and now it takes me about 20 minutes , but I do remember it used to take longer as I was always stopping to take pictures. The outskirts of town to, say the cinema, could add another 15 minutes I have changed the description from time to kilometers, thanks Karen. Ah, but the traffic...that is a varible, but most times it should be less than five minutes, but the parking in town can be difficult.
