About Gippsland Lakehouse

Gippsland Lakehouse is a luxury waterfront 4 bedroom holiday rental house jutting out over the Paynesville canals of the Gippsland Lakes. Three levels of north facing decking give you immediate access to the water and stunning views across the canals, Gippsland Lakes and mountains.

The lower deck leads to a private jetty, the middle deck extends the living area complete with outdoor open fireplace, barbecue, outdoor dining and sun lounges, while the top deck ensures a private area adjacent to the main bedrooms also with an outdoor setting.

Gippsland Lakehouse is one of the few child friendly properties on the canals. The huge entertaining deck is enclosed with a glass balustrade and has a lockable gate leading down to the water. All the sliding doors are also lockable. Should you need it, there is also a modern high chair (6 months - 15 kgs), and a portacot with mattress, mosquito cover and bassinet level. There is also an X-Box with games for the older kids, board games and a treasure trove of books and DVDs/CDs for children and adults alike.

Absolutely amazing. I spoke about this place for weeks afterwards and I am still looking forward to my next stay. Will definitely stay there again.

My family and I had an amazing time at the deck house. It is without a doubt the most luxurious holiday home that I have stayed in. Everything was accounted for, even the private jetty which was handy. We took up our boat and the boys went fishing whilst the girls stayed in with the kids. We relaxed by the outdoor OFP in the evenings sipping wine and listening to the amazing wildlife. I would definitely recommend this holiday home to anyone who demands quality. Thank you, we will be back!

What a fabulous place - who need to go O/S when there is accommodation of this standard in such a superb place.

A fabulous venue for the extended family & friends to celebrate a birthday/special occasion - come by boat or car! Everything we needed to play, relax, cook, clean, etc. was provided. Will be booking again! Liked the idea of booking both houses for a large group, too.

We chose the Lakehouse to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. The accommodation was excellent, the food delicious and the ambiance delightful. The whole family voted it a really lovely experience. If only we could all return...

Had a brilliant long weekend with friends in this superb house at this stunning location. We enjoyed beautiful walks in the gorgeous town. The house had everything we needed and more, the outside decking with the barbecue and outdoor fireplace was an absolute highlight. We loved this place so much that when we returned the keys we re-booked for the same time next year and can't wait to get back and have another relaxing weekend with our friends.

What a SENSATIONAL house in a great location. The house is right by the water with beautiful views. It is elegant and luxurious (better amenities than our own house)....didn't want to leave at the end. Cannot recommend it highly enough...if there is a vacancy....don't even hesitate!!

Absolutely stunning house, with all your needs catered for, fantastic location, great for relaxing on the balcony in the sun for breakfast or afternoon drinks with family & friends, with beautiful views of the canal and Gippsland Lakes, a jetty right out the front to moor our boat, what more could you ask for.

What a fantastic place - and location! We'd never been to the 'Lakes District' before and our time at the Lakehouse made us want to stay forever! Highly recommended!

To me, the best place to be here! I cannot think of a better place to be for myself, my husband and my family. I come from Washington USA and have not experienced a place better than this with all our travels all over the USA. Thank you for giving us the best time of our lives......we hope to come back and enjoy this wonderful jewel of a place.

Gorgeous modern house, every convenience and luxury, right on the water with beautiful views..... What more could you ask for????/ Just PERFECT!!!!

The Lakehouse was fantastic, the location, facilities and view were amazing, made even better by the fact that we got engaged while staying here! Thanks for a great experience, we will definitely be back!

We hired both houses with 22 people over Xmas. We had a brilliant time. The places were spotless and so well set up for adults and children. We loved the access to the water and the jetties. The staff were delightful and our booking was managed perfectly. We also really appreciated the welcome pack and felt that it was a very special touch. There is no doubt we will be back and we have recommended the houses to many of our friends.

My family and I had one of the most enjoyable and relaxing holidays we've ever had, at the Gippsland Lakehouse. The accommodation is luxurious, warm, incredibly comfortable, and gorgeous to look at. The setting is incomparable: lounging on the fabulous deck overlooking the water; fishing; water-skiing; "donut-ing"(being pulled behind a speed-boat on a large rubber ring); jet-skiing; boating to 90 mile beach, picnicking, swimming, shell collecting...; seafood lunch and wander around sleepy Metung; red wine and chestnuts around the outdoor fireplace at night.... Will we be back? We can't wait!

I have travelled a lot and stayed in many places both here and overseas. This is, without exception, one of the best places we have ever stayed at. The house itself is absolutely stunning, beautifully appointed. Simple and elegant with everything there. The views over the water are breath-taking and the whole atmosphere brings enormous calm. We only stayed for the weekend, but next time we will stay for much longer.

This was an awesome house to stay in. We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. The house is fitted with the best of everything imaginable. We stayed 2 families and yet the house was spacious enough to allow for privacy.What a great property. Would love to come back in the future and will certainly recommend it to others. This property had it all... luxury, comfort and location ++++++++++

Our first impressions of this beautiful house was WOW - and that is before we opened the door. This was the perfect getaway for our families. The house was perfect. The views, the modern finishes, the luxurious bedrooms, the fireplace outside, the spacious living area. Every thing was thought of to the very last detail. We have been to some beautiful places, but the Lakehouse was the most relaxing and beautiful self contained home we have stayed in. How blissful to have breakfast on the balcony overlooking the water, then to hop on to your boat and sail away for the day. Paynesville is a gorgeous place to stay.

One of the features I enjoyed most about the Gippsland Lakehouse was sitting on the balcony in the quiet of the morning, enjoying the surrounding birdlife. The accommodation - where do I start; private jetty, outdoor fireplace, overlooking wide canal and bush land, all areas of the lakehouse have such a great feel about it. Open living area fantastic with the warmth to make it feel homely- a great place to stay with family and friends. Would highly recommend
Rhonda S.

absolutely LOVED staying here... one of the most well-planned, organised, deluxe townhouses my family and I have had the pleasure of staying in. Every last detail was considered... from the bed linen to the common area and separate outdoor living areas. Sublime. We brought our boat down for the weekend and had one of the most memorable holidays to date. There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning, fishing off the private jetty and watching the black swans dancing. In a word - MAGIC. Well done.

Had the pleasure of taking my wife and two friends to this little piece of paradise what an absolutely fantastic place to stay. It had everything we needed to relax and unwind would recommend this place to anyone 5 star. Looking forward to going again.

5 star location/5 star accommodation - Spent 4 magnificent days earlier this year with family and friends. Endless activities on and around the lakes. This property is set up to accommodate 10 people in luxury. There's a massive plasma tv in the main entertainment area set up with games and pay tv. the top two levels have balconies that overlook the lakes and mountains so you can relax after a hard day on the lakes. Nothing has been left out on this property, there's even an undercover area to hang out and dry your water activity gear. Loved the area so much that I have already booked my next stay.
Brian N.

WOW! what a beautiful place, the serenity was amazing. when they say right on the lake, that's what you get, including your own pier!! Sip on some wine outside by the fire while the kids are inside playing the Playstation,. Relax, life will stop for you.

Booked this accommodation for out of town staff. They loved the location and the ability to sit around in the beautiful setting to relax after a hard day at the office. Better than booking 10 hotel rooms and dare I say it cheaper as well. Everyone's a winner!

Wonderful, romantic and beautiful architecture design. Had a fantastic stay and recommend it to all wanting to get away.
Peter B.

This place is very luxurious and right on the water. Great place for anyone with a boat.
John L.

If you want relaxed elegance, with utter tranquility - this is for you. We so enjoyed watching the sun go down over the water from the beautiful deck, warmed by the outdoor fireplace. (our visit was in the Autumn). So tastefully decorated, and as a foodie- appreciated the well equipped kitchen. Loved the works of art adorning the walls.

The most amazing place , in the most fantastic location. Only one big problem... ... you will never want to leave...!
