One of two Baches on this large section situated on the lakefront with stunning views over Lake Rotoiti.

Large deck overlooking the lake, mezzanine floor - a lake view from just about every room!

The three double beds are in an open plan area on the mezzanine floor. This area is semi partitioned for privacy.

There is a bunk room under the deck which is only suitable for summer time containing a double bunk and a single bed.

Close to Hells Gate and a boat ride to the hot springs - great spot for water skiing, fishing, sailing or just lounging around!! There is no TV reception but plenty of other things to do!

Access is via a metal road through the Tikitere Forest.
Off road parking.

There is NO JETTY but a boat mooring is available for use and the boat ramp is 150m down the road.
Please let us know if you want to use the boat mooring at the time of booking.

There is room for a boat to park off the road but we recommend a 4 wheel drive for the parking area in front of the Bach, as the drive entry is quite steep. Most people are happy to park their boat trailers on the roadside above the Bach.

Note: The property is not suitable for people with small children as there is a large internal staircase leading up to a mezzanine floor.

Pets by arrangement.

Please vacuum, clean the kitchen and bathroom areas before you leave, so the Bach is clean and tidy for the next lot of people to stay.

 We loved the secluded feel you get when driving to the Bach. No mainstream tourist in sight. The kids loved the kayaks. 

 An enjoyable family getaway 

 Ruamoana is a simple and beautiful bach with stunning views over the lake. As previously noted, the bach is down an isolated road, but the owner's directions were very clear. Despite cold weather, the wood burning stove kept inside the Bach toasty. During a break in the rain we went out in the kayaks; experienced kayakers would probably have been fine but the current was too strong for our 11 year old. We look forward to returning and checking out the hot water beach in calmer weather. 

 Place was great... Well set up & convenient... thanks very much 

 Proximity to the lake and boat ramp, wonderful bird life and remoteness, while still being close to civilisation.
