For a romantic escape for two, or a treat the whole family can enjoy, this
lakeside retreat nestled in native bush in secluded Otautu Bay, Lake
Rotoehu is sure to delight.

No two days are the same when you are waterfront!
Launch one of our four kayaks from the shore (or the jetty just to the right of the property), spend the day kayaking and catch a trout. On your return, smoke your catch on the well-lit covered deck or cook up a feast on the BBQ. Curl up on the sofa with a good book, listen to the beautiful birdlife across the lake and relax while you watch the last of the sun setting behind the hills. A five minute drive will see you sitting under the stars, soaking away your cares at the Waitangi Soda Springs. A good selection of DVD’s are available for rainy days.

Lake Rotoehu is excellent for all water sports including swimming, fishing, kayaking, waterskiing and boating. A boat ramp is located a short distance across the Bay. This central location is quiet and peaceful, yet great coffee and beautiful food are just minutes away at the Rotoma Café. The little general store caters to all your last minute needs, including fishing licences and a gas station. On your way into Rotorua (30 mins drive) and all its attractions, stop off at the Hinehopu Golf Course or Hell’s Gate. Or use this as your base to explore the beautiful Bay of Plenty.

Relax, refresh and rejuvenate at our place.

 We loved the location and peacefulness of the Bach 

 remote location, lovely lake view, great deck and BBQ, and kayaks :) :) 

 Stunning property that is located in the most beautiful spot. Right on the waterfront and very peaceful with lovely neighbours. Everything is at the bach that you could possible need for a relaxing break away. Great to know we didn't have to lug kayaks and kids bikes as these were all there. The lake was so stunning and hours or even days could be spent exploring all the inlets and walkways. Cant wait to go back!! 

 Wonderful bach! Beautiful and clean and in an incredibly natural place. If you want a place to kick back, relax, and enjoy a nice libation - this is for you. Lived the kayaks and the kids were very excited about the sleep out. Thanks for letting us stay. 

 A tranquil spot close to a great range of activities or just a quiet paddle around the lake in the kyacks.
