  • Beauty - surrounded by nature - trees, ferns and spectacular views across the lake

  • Location - close enough to walk to local bar/restaurant and fabulous art cafe. 7 km from town.

This trully is the cottage to escape to. Located in a stunning area of Acacia Bay where peace and quiet are the norm. The cottage is nestled behind stunning homes and therefore like a hidden gem. If you want to get away from it all and enjoy peace and privacy, it's here.

Close to a fantastic, friendly bar/restaurant which is particularly buzzing on a Friday when the local fishing club members meet for raffle night, there's no need to worry about drinking and driving - it's a mere 15 (casual) walking minutes away. Explore the Acacia Bay side of the lake through the several beautiful bush/lake walks - no need to take a car to get to the start of the track. Listen to the moreporks at night and watch the Tui soar between trees.

If you do want to visit the centre of town, it's a mere 5 minute drive away. There are many fabulous restaurants and cafes in town to choose from.

The mountains are only 1.5 hours drive away. Napier is 1.5 hours drive away. Rotorua is 50 minutes drive and Tauranga and Hamilton 2 hours drive. This makes the location ideal for travellers who want a base to travel from.

Special conditions: Perfect for couples, however master bedroom is roomy and comfortably fits roll away bed for a third person or this could be put up in the living area at night and stored away during the day. We live next door to the cottage however it is detached and has its own access so is very private. We are on hand if you require any tips on hot spots to visit but will not interrupt your privacy.
