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.

The Loveshack is suitable for couples, but can accommodate a small child using the fold-out sofa bed. For larger groups wishing to book, and needing an additional bedroom, the Pohutukawa room at the top of the property can be used as part of the total accommodation of the Loveshack. The Pohutukawa room is only rented as part of the Loveshack, not independently, and so guests are assured of an exclusive rental.

The room is equipped with queen bed, tv, small kitchenette & en-suite. The "Pohutukawa" room is very private, with wonderful lake views over a native bush setting. Please enquire separately for this room.

 The view of the lake and close Proximity made it! The decor inside was very modern and tasteful. Walking distance to native bush and cafe was great. 

 Seriously! What an incredible weekend away! This has been one of my favourites baches I have stayed it. The view was perfection and the cutest little cabin. We were very happy with everything and highly recommend staying here! We will definitely be back:) 

 Great place to stay.

 Lake front with lovely chairs to sit in and enjoy, Use of kayaks and life jackets was also a bonus. Very clean and comfortable accomadation with enough quirkiness to make it a great holiday location. Thank you! 

 Our second time, wonderful place to stay & get away from everything.
