Spectacular Queenstown location; absolute waterfront and an easy 5 minute stroll to town
Click here for a wonderful insight into what it’s like to stay at The Bay House! As featured by popular Queenstown lifestyle blogger.
Views: Outstanding front row views of Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak.
Location: Crystal clear Lake Wakatipu is at the doorstep, making this an amazing holiday base. The Bay House is located in Queenstown’s ‘dress circle’ as it’s known by locals. This is a unique area close to town, but away from the action and incredibly quiet with little traffic, other than cyclists, runners and walkers heading to and from the delightful Frankton Track at the end of Park Street. You can carry on along this beautiful lakefront trail through Kelvin Heights and all the way to Jack’s Point. The Queenstown Gardens is just minutes away towards town, which has frisbee golf, walking trails, picnic spots, tennis, lawn bowls and ice skating.
Style: Designed by famous New Zealand Architect, Ian Athfield in 1987 to maximise the location with all bedrooms having a lake view. The 3 level home has been fully modernised with ducted heating, double glazing and completely refurnished and luxuriously styled to a high standard by an interior designer.

"We LOVE the Bay House! Our stay was 5* luxury from the moment we pulled up to the property. The house is perfectly located, it's gloriously decorated and has every amenity imaginable. The absolute highlight of this property though is the view of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range. Every day the view changes...we spent hours just sitting admiring the views and listening to the sound of waves lapping against the rocks. The living room and all of the bedrooms have lake front views, so we didn't need to fight over who gets what room. The owners of this property have created a luxury haven just 5 minutes walk from the center of Queenstown, and they've thought about everything. The beds and linen are top quality (think Four Seasons standard) so we slept great each night. The kitchen is full of premium appliances and has everything and anything you would need. We cooked a big family dinner one evening and it was a breeze. The furniture is bespoke and very comfortable, and the spa pool in the garden was great to relax in of an evening. Our family have stayed in many rental properties in Queenstown but the Bay House has to be the best! A final mention to the hosts who were very professional and responsive to all our questions. We would highly recommend the Bay House if you plan on visiting Queenstown!"

"Thank you for such a wonderful stay - The Bayhouse is hands down the most fabulous place we could have hoped for on our holiday. 5 star views with the lake on your doorstep, short stroll to town so you dont have the headache of parking in Queenstown. The apartment is beautifully laid out with wonderful surprise little touches like Bubbles and cheese in the fridge on arrival. The kitchen is a cooks dream with everything thought of if you wish to entertain at home. The beds are amazing - just like you would find in a five star hotel, an important feature after a days skiing that only takes you 25 mins from door to field (Coronet) Loved it. Will definitely be back."

"The location allowed us to walk into town in minutes and avoid having to park the car. We found a very well appointed and clean townhouse that was a comfortable and luxurious base for exploring Queenstown. Would definitely return! Hosts were very responsive and everything went smoothly."

"Incredible stay at the Bay House. The place was immaculate, with very comfortable and luxurious bedding and amenities. The house is walking distance to town while just enough outside to be remarkably quiet. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat if we make it back!"
