Lakefront, Lawn to lake and jetty

 Our stay at Lake Haven was fabulous. It's a piece of paradise! The house was very clean and well-set up for holiday makers. The setting is stunning - very peaceful with a beautiful outlook. We really appreciated the use of the kayaks and life jackets - our children had hours of fun using these plus loved fishing form the private jetty and swimming in the very safe (and warm!) lake. We were able to watch them from bean bags under the trees and watch them, so a very relaxing time for all! 


 Very comfortable house with amazing views. 

Beached at Papamoa for Complete Relaxation.

 Clean, good sized house with comfortable beds, lovely fenced backyard. 5mins walk to the beach. Good parking space for our 3 cars. Very handy having WiFi.

 Beautifully presented waterfront home in a peaceful bay. Four bedrooms, One bathroom, Two ensuites, all facilities - so much more than a home away from home. We loved it.

 Had a great time as usual. Really enjoy staying here. 

Stunning Lake and Rural Views near Golf Course

 Awesome house for a family - the sheep and horses were a bonus.
