Short Description

Lakefront Apartment with balcony in Queenstown


Central apartment in a premium lakefront location just a 5 minute stroll along the waterfront to the heart of downtown Queenstown.

The open plan lounge & dining area open out on to a balcony with a table & 2 chairs and great views of Lake Wakatipu and surrounding mountains. What a great spot to sit and enjoy the view while eating your breakfast in the morning or when you get back from a day exploring.


Someone from The Butler is just a phone call away.


The Lakefront Apartments (previously known as St Omer Court) are in a prime location on Lake Esplanade just a short stroll along the lakefront to the Steamer Wharf and downtown Queenstown.

The apartment is just far enough from town to be quite at night but still less than 5 minutes flat walk to over 100 bars and restaurants. Walk time depends on how many times you stop for photos.

The apartment is part of a complex - please be respectful of your neighbours.


We will send you detailed directions and lockbox codes 3 - 5 days prior to your arrival.
You have full access to the apartment except for 2 locked cupboards.

The undercover carpark has a 2m height restriction


Unlike other apartments of its size Apt 12 has a full kitchen with a free standing stove, fridge, microwave and a dishwasher. We do not have a coffee machine but there is a plunger there so you can still get your coffee fix in the mornings.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms both downstairs. One bedroom has a Queen bed and views, the 2nd bedroom has a Queen bed and single bed - it does not have a view. There is one bathroom downstairs with a shower over the bath, a basin & toilet. Upstairs there is a toilet in the laundry. Free Wifi. Free undercover parking.

As the apartment does have stairs between the living area and bedrooms we do have a stair gate if required.
Cot & Highchair can be hired - please enquire.

A car is not required if unless you wish to go exploring. However if you do have a car we do have parking for 1 standard size vehicle with no roof racks. Vehicles bigger than this or additional vehicles will need to find available street parking - this can be difficult during busy periods.
5 minutes flat walk along the lakefront (about 400m)
Distance from airport 8.3km (approx 15 minutes) - Taxi's & Airport shuttles available at the airport.
You can also catch the Fernhill bus to the Rydges Hotel then walk back towards town about 120m - the bus takes approx 25 minutes


There is one carpark available for our guests use. It will fit a standard size car or SUV but there is a height restriction of 2 metres going into the undercover carpark so you cannot have a roof rack on your vehicle. Please ensure you only park in our designated carpark - it is clearly market #12.

Please let us know how many beds you will be using during your stay - this is a big help for our housekeeping team.

The property does have a lot of stairs so not suitable for people with mobility issues - we have a stair gate available on request (free of charge) - please let us know if you will need this.

Great base for Queenstown. Easy walk to centre and amazing views of the lake and mountains from the apartment. Apartment was clean, tidy and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay.

Exactly as advertised, perfect location with a very easy, flat 7min walk to Queenstown central. A very comfortable apartment with a well appointed kitchen and comfortable beds. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

The apartment is in a perfect location for exploring all Queenstown has to offer! Lake views from the living room and walking distance to the main area of shops and restaurants. We were so glad we chose to stay at Deborah’s apartment!

Excellent location. Straight across the road from the lake. A short walk to restaurants & shops. Not too far to walk to get to parkrun Saturday morning 😊 Beautiful views from balcony.

Outstanding location. Incredible views and walkable to Queenstown. Very responsive and pleasant host.
