The Loveshack is located on the shore of Lake Rotoiti at Okere Falls 20km from Rotorua city off S.H.33 to Tauranga. A self contained cottage that is perfect for that Romantic Break you deserve. Relax amongst the native garden or bring your own boat and try your luck at fishing for Rainbow Trout or just playing on the water and visiting the many bays and beaches including the famous Manupirua Hot Pools which are only accessable by boat. On your return tie up at the jetty and step ashore. Visit the Okere Falls Store/Cafe/Beer Garden by boat or a short stroll. There are numerous activities close by including bush walks, white water rafting, golfing and thermal attractions.

For larger groups wishing to book the Love Shack, and needing an additional bedroom , the Pohutukawa room can be used as part of the total accommodation of the Loveshack. The Pohutukawa room is only rented as part of the Love Shack, not independently, and so guests are assured of an exclusive rental.

 The Love Shack is fanastic! Everything and more you could ask for, right down to the smallest features, my husband and I could not fault our time there, it was amazing, quiet, romantic, peaceful, bird and bush life stunning, this place is immaculate. 5 stars for our stay. We thank you, it was our 10th wedding anniversary and now we have great memories. 

 Had an absolutely wonderful stay. Beautiful spot and a sweet wee cottage with everything you might need. Found a wee gem at Okere Falls Store, great feed and German beer. Definitely recommend. 

 We had a fabulous week at The Loveshack, great being able to take our small ski boat and have it tied up at the jetty. The Okere Falls store is a treat in itself. Highly recommended. 

 Extremely well located and exactly as advertised. 

 The Love Shack was an amazing place to stay. Beautiful location, very quiet and relaxing, but close enough to Rotorura that you could still do lots of site seeing. The batch is a wonderful, tranquil place. Perfectly appointed with anything you would need. Had coffee on the deck each morning and listened to the tui birds sing and watched the black swans on the lake. Great fun kayaking. Thousands of brilliant, amazing stars at night. I have never experienced anything like it!!
