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.

You are welcome to use the Spa Pool/Jacuzzi, but please note, guests use any Spa Pool at their own risk. We do all we can to keep the water safe, but on rare occasions, there can be an 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, or the spa is murky and needs the chemicals balanced, please call the Property Manager. This is a health and safety issue – so do not hesitate to call.

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, 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.
The spa cools quickly when the lid is left off, causing it to constantly re-heat. If the lid is left off for long periods it draws an enormous amount of electricity therefore 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.
If the water gets below the jets, please top it up using the yellow hose. The jets will function at their optimum when the water level is covering them. Please note it is not good for jets to run without water covering them.

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 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 $400 cost to do this.

It seems a bit “out of the way” amongst the trees here. But, be aware the closest neighbor is only about ten metres away. Please do not use the Spa Pool after 10pm in keeping with the Queenstown Management Act for Noise Control.
We tend to talk loudly in a spa over the pumps and bubbles – it is not far from the neighbouring home and their bedroom windows. Also, if you are staying up late to chat with friends and family, please just do so inside after 10pm.

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. If this happens twice, we will consider the “terms of appropriate behavior” to be broken and guests will be evicted – without refund. Any loud noise after 10pm is considered in breach of the Noise Control Law.

The Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 does not apply as the property is used for business purposes.
