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.

 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!! 

 Fantastic Place to stay, was very pleased. Exactly as advertised. Would recommend and just want to go back! 

 Location - amazing! Right on the waterfront. You really couldn't get more private or romantic! The house was lovely too. We had absolutely everything we needed, plus more! Lots of seating, a table inside and outside, comfy bed, clean bathroom, music and tv, cooking facilities. I definitely will be returning! 

 If you are looking for a private romantic getaway in a fantastic location, book this place. You get exactly what is promised, and it is even more stunning in real life. Literally on the lake, beautiful setting, amazing bird life, stunning sunsets and the local store has wonderful food and a great selection of artisan goods to buy, as well as really decent coffee. Cottage is clean, really comfortable and perfect for a couple who want to get away from it all. 

 Beautiful bach and amazing location!! perfect for a couple getaway Already planning to go back in April :)
