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.

    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.

  • Great location

    Great location. Really enjoyed our stay, will be back. Lovely and peaceful. Loved using the kayaks and played loads of backyard cricket. TV reception was hit and miss, the windows need some maintenance so they can all be kept open and having some tea, coffee and sugar supplied would be great.

    Absolutely beautiful view, wonderful to just sit and relax on the deck and watch the sun sparkle on the water. The inside of the bach itself seemed a little neglected, dusty, a lot of dead insects. Cleaners maybe didn't do such a hot job before we came. On the plus side, bed was made up very nicely with crisp clean sheets.
