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.

  •  Great location, all amenities are in a poor state of repair, showing unloved. Needs TLC

  •  Nice lovely bach, fully equipped and tidy; did need a bit of a wipe down though as there was a lot of dust and dead insects but perhaps people hadn't been there in a while. Location was stunning - the kayaks were a bonus! Would definitely recommend to everyone - couples, friends, and families. 

  •  Excellent location, loads of toys, very tidy Bach .... Thank you.
