REPORTING A COMPLAINT Should you have any issues with the property during your stay, you should notify The Property Owner immediately. SPA POOL/ JACUZZI Should the property you've booked have a Spa, please refer to these guidelines SPA POOL - KEEPING THE WATER AT A SAFE LEVEL We encourage you to enjoy the Spa Pool/Jacuzzi. Please note, guests use any Spa Pool at their own risk. We do all we can to keep the water safe, however on rare occasions, there can be unseen bacteria build up in a spa. It is recommended to add a teaspoon of sanitizer per person (stored in the shelf of the pantry), daily when the spa is in use – along with using the ‘dip in test strips’ (to check chlorine and PH etc levels are safe). If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Property Manager. SPA POOL – SPA COVER & HEATING Be careful removing the spa cover. Undo ALL the clips and fold it back, slide it into the holder and gently lift it down the side of the pool. Please do not sit on the spa cover both when it is ON the spa or when it is lifted OFF. Do not turn the spa off at the wall plug, only the jets need to be turned off when not in use. For safety of neighbouring children, please keep the spa locked when not in use. The spa is surrounded by trees that drop leaves and debris which block the filter so please keep the cover on when not in use. SPA POOL - HEATING The spa cools quickly when the lid is left off, and once cooled down, it takes 24 hours to re-heat, This will affect your use of the spa and potentially the use of the spa for incoming guests. The spa will strain to constantly re-heat, drawing an enormous amount of electricity and resulting in an excessive electricity bill. So please do not leave the lid off when there is no-one in the spa. If the lid is found to be left off whilst not being used a fee of $500 will be deducted from your bond. SPA POOL - WATER LEVELS If the water gets below the jets, please top it up using the yellow hose. The jets will stop heating and not function at its optimum when the water level is too low SPA POOL - KEEPING THE SPA CLEAN & HYGIENIC There is a high cost involved in emptying, cleaning out, then re-filling and heating the spa. The next guests will also be unable to use it for a couple of days whilst they wait for the spa to re-fill and heat again. Please do not wear sunscreen, fake tan or body lotions when using the Spa. Please do not drop drinks, food or cigarettes in the water. If the spa is found to be in poor condition that we must empty it, we will on-charge the $500 cost to do this. SPA POOL - NOISE CONTROL WHILST IN SPA It seems a bit “out of the way” amongst the trees here. But, be aware the closest neighbour is only ten metres away. Please do not use the Spa Pool after 10pm in keeping with the Queenstown Management Act for Noise Control. POLICE OR QUEENSTOWN NOISE CONTROL CALL OUTS If the Police or Queenstown Noise Control, or The Property Manager or Owner,, are called to the house, due to extremely noisy guests, there will be a $500 call-out fee. This is a breach of the “terms of appropriate behavior” and guests will be evicted – without refund. Noise after 10pm is considered in breach of the Noise Control Law. Additional charges (+GST) will be payable as follows: - In the event of keys being lost, the locks must be changed at a cost of $500 - $100 each for lost / damaged Guest Information Folder - $50 per hour to organise third parties to rectify a situation or $45 per hour if holiday manager has to conduct remedial work themselves at the house to sort out issues arising from stay - Charges for excessive or unusual services consumed.- Missing linen at replacement cost - Handling fee of 14% of the cost of repair or replacement of damaged or missing items - Debt collection and legal fees incurred in the collection of unpaid charges - Interest on any overdue accounts at the variable interest rate of Westpac Bank from the due date of the invoice until payment is received.

Kirsten Gendall
Fabulous property on the lakeside! Very comfortable (especially the King size beds), warm and had everything we needed for a great trip to Queenstown.
Nine of us stayed here for 6 nights in September. It was perfect for a large group. There is a downstairs with two bedrooms, ensuite bathroom and sitting area which my family used, another separate area with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the main floor and a fifth bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Everyone slept soundly in very comfortable beds. The living area is big and very comfortable. There is a large table. The kitchen is huge and had everything we needed for self catering. But the best part is the view. From nearly every room the views are unbelievable. You look straight across the lake to the Remarkables. It is absolutely stunning. Marie was delightful to deal with. All 9 of us loved our time here and would definitely recommend The Lakehouse. It is worth mentioning that it is a 5 minute drive to Queenstown shops or a very picturesque but brisk 20 minute walk.
