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 also Pet Friendly.

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.

  •  Lovely spot and very private and secluded. We had rain almost entire time, but managed to enjoy the view and beautifully keep grounds a bit. The love shack is well equipped and nice and clean. Good TV reception which we used due to bad weather, so at least we were entertained. Well done Guy & Jess, we look forward to meeting you again. Roger & Margy 

  •  The location was superb, stunningly beautiful and serene. We had wonderful weather for the entire stay - honestly the place was magic. (i actually had to book another night as i didnt want to leave. The Love Shack itself is perfect for a couple wanting that secluded getaway. It was a well maintained and contained batch with everything one requires. Ive been constantly singing its praises since we left and ill be going back in the near future.

  •  I loved everything about it, beautiful location made even better by the cruise on the lake in the immaculately restored launch.
