Okawa Bay, Lake Rotoiti water's edge

 We loved the location of this property as the view across the lake was amazing, and it was great to be able to wakeboard so close to the property. 

Okere Falls- Lake Front-Lake Rotoiti-Rotorua-Jetty

 Bach is well appointed and has everything you need. 

Okere Falls Lake House

 Awesome place, awesome host, all round great! We managed to have 6 kayakers in this place and lived comfortably for six days. Note: found one cockroach but I hear that isn't uncommon in this area. (From Canada) 

Trout Pool Cottage

 Gorgeous cottage, very clean, we had an awesome stay and the only thing we could fault was the quality of the bed. Thanks. 

Absolute lake edge cottage

 Minarapa Lakeside Cottage is the ideal location for a relaxing summer fishing holiday for a small family. We had a lovely time.
