Description

  • Great trout fishing in nearby stream or right in the backyard
  • Quiet town 10mins drive to Rotorua City
  • Kayaks available on the property

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.

Special conditions: Ask us about special requirements, we can usually help. Smoking outside only.

  • Perfect for our family - basic and comfortable, great location, awesome views

    Perfect for our family - basic and comfortable, great location, awesome views. Such a treat to be able to take our little dog with us too who enjoyed the benefits of a lakeside property. We would definately stay here again, its the quintessential original 'kiwi bach'. Great value for money too.

    Thanks Tony, there's always the issue of "should we put the charge up a bit" but NZ is in the midst of a frenzy of making things more expensive and we like to be the exception. Your feedback tells us we're on the right track and frankly, it feels good when people recognize that what we offer is an unpretentious kiwi bach - from the chrome taps to the pine timber to the corrugated roof. Hope to see your family complete with the wee dog again sometime!

    This is a really special spot! It had everything we needed and more for a really comfortable, peaceful stay with a lovely view. The weather was rather chilly and wet, but the bach was a cosy haven near to everything, but feeling like you were away from town. I even had a lovely paddle out on the lake in the mist with the swans. We would love to go back!

    Owner/manager responds:

    You chose a nice time to visit, those paddles in the mist are special, though you were unlucky that it was chilly and wet - can go either way in October. I trust you made use of the life jackets that we have on hand, its a very safe spot for kayaking but you can never over-do the safety. The swans make great neighbours, graceful and unobtrusive. Come back and see them again soon, they'll always be here though their numbers go up and down a bit....

    The location of this property is ideal, its a quick 5 min drive from the city center but it feels like you in a completely different place. Very peaceful and right on the lakeside with beautiful views especially in the morning and evening. Very close to the luge aas well so was very easy navigating around rotorua. The only issue we had while staying here was that on the first night we ran out of gas so there was no heating or hot water in the house. But this was resolved by Arahi very quickly.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Well done to Arahi for sorting that gas supply issue out quickly. Thing is - if we were on town gas, we'd be just that extra bit closer to being in the town.. its a nice town but being out in Ngonghi and on the lake edge is the extra special bit. So glad you enjoyed your stay so much.
