Description

Situated on a quite street you will find our relaxing Lockwood Bach on a beautiful tree lined lakeside plot, with open access to the lake and fantastic views across to Mokoia Island. The water immediately in front of the property is shallow, and safe for young ones to start to learn paddling and boating skills. Kayaks available on the property free of charge.

The house itself has gas hot water, heating and cooking and a fully equipped kitchen with microwave and dishwasher etc. Just pack your bad and move in. Enjoy the warmer days from the large deck with beautiful outlook or the cooler days snuggled up in front of the fire. Great off-street parking available. Pets are welcome but please let us know first. Many of our visitors bring dogs, the garden is ideal for them.

  • Beautiful location

    Beautiful location. Warm, comfortable house. Could benefit from some maintenance, particularly paintwork. Smelled a bit musty when we arrived but was fine after airing out and warming up. The house has everything you need for a relaxing break.

    The location was fine for the purpose of our trip, and not in the hustle and bustle of Rotorua City Centre. Our kids enjoyed exploring outside particularly around the boat ramp. Perhaps, the description of having a DVD player available needs to be updated as there was no DVD player at the property and instructions on how to operate the fire would be beneficial for any future users. A dehumidifier would have been helpful to keep home warm as there was a lot of condensation in the morning.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for the feedback, Angie. There is now a DVD / blueray player and we'll work on instructions for lighting the fire.

    Location was a bit far away for where we needed to be for our Judo competition but great spot for summer right on the lake with a stunning view! The property was good and although the beds were lumpy and a bit uncomfortable for us they all had lovely and crisp clean bedding. The heating was fantastic for the freezing weather and the bathroom was nice and new. The kitchen could definitely do with a good spring clean! Kids were disappointed there was no DVD player only video.

    We loved the location - absolute lakefront with perfect little beach to take the kayaks out. Very peaceful and nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of Rotorua - yet close enough to pop into town easily.

    Old-school charm of a much loved Lockwood with a generous yard running to the lake water’s edge. Our two boys spent hours, happily mucking around in the water and the garden. We loved our stay and will be back.
