  • Very comfortable house in a great location

    Very comfortable house in a great location. Everything we needed was there -except a coffee plunger would have been nice. Wish we could have stayed longer. Lake Okareka is a great location to explore Rotarua and surrounds. It is so peaceful and beautiful.

  • We loved staying here

    We loved staying here. The house was so clean and tidy on arrival. The beds were comfortable, lovely kitchen and my kids loved the trampoline. We couldnt recommend this bach highly enough. If you are looking for a comfortable family stay, then look no further. We would definately stay here again

  • We LOVED our stay

    We LOVED our stay. It was the perfect location for our event, and had everything we could have needed. Beautiful back yard, great view from the deck, and all the beds / linens were very very cozy. Fantastic, very tidy little house. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much!
