"We were very lucky to be able to book Lakefront Residence for our wedding at late notice with only 2 months to go. We had been searching for a venue that would be a relaxing environment for our guests and ourselves without having to compromise on style and we definitely found that. Emma was absolutely wonderful to deal with, so accommodating and made herself available for us to come view the property prior to the wedding and allowing us to have the freedom to cater and decorate for ourselves. It is a gorgeous spot on the lake and the property surrounds offer some great opportunities for wedding photography. Arriving there gave us an immediate feeling of serenity and did wonders in alleviating the stress that weddings can bring on. All of our guests commented on what a wonderful location it was and we enjoyed spending 3 days there which gave us time to be prepared for the day and wind down afterwards. The house itself has 3 lovely bedrooms and the decor is stylish yet neutral so provides an excellent backdrop for any theme you wish. We highly recommend this venue if you have a boutique wedding in mind, it definitely adds more wonder to your wonderful day. Thank you Emma!"

The house is really astonishing, vast inside, well equipped, besides a beautiful lake with water lilies, a kayak and horses in the adjacent field. The place is gorgeous. The host prepared small attentions that were very welcoming. Even though our plan was to go and visit nearby beaches, we decided to stay a whole day in the house and take profit of the calm and beautiful surrounding. It will remain one of our best souvenirs from NZ.
