New stylish plywood lined, corrugated iron clad bach. Located on the Te Akau peninsula at Okere Falls the bach works as well for a couple or a family.

The bach, deck and lawn have a nice combination of bush and lake outlook. Inside is a lounge, master bedroom with a queen bed, a second room with three single beds, kitchenette, and bathroom. Outside is a large deck, outdoor table and under a covered pergola is a hooded BBQ with a side gas element for cooking. There is also a single element benchtop hob and sandwich press in the kitchentte.

Inside the decor is plywood with a mix of colours on the doors, light fittings and furnishings.

The Te Weta Bay reserve is three houses away (less than 100 metres) for swimming, kayaking and boating. Use of a jetty and two sit on kayaks is included. The jetty is in a sheltered bay and you can leave your boat tied up at the jetty when staying without having to drive to a ramp to put it in and out of the lake each time you use it.

The renowned Okere Falls store is 30 minutes walk away or a short drive for a morning coffee or an afternoon beer.

This is a brand new bach. It is well insulated and double glazed so is easy to get and keep warm over winter. There is a selection of extra blankets in case you need them at night or when enjoying an evening drink under the stars out on the deck and a heater inside.

The drive has a corner in it and the parking area doesnt allow for turning a trailer around easily which means that larger boat trailers may need to be parked in the drive or on a roadside grass verge nearby. We leave our 5 metre boat in the water at the jetty when staying at the bach and have the empty trailer only on the bach section.

Sorry as the bach is new we don't allow dogs.

  • Lovely new property, great amenities including bbq and gas hot water

    Lovely new property, great amenities including bbq and gas hot water. Didn't get to use the kayak due to the weather but appreciated the board games. This place has everything you need for a cozy getaway. Great communication from hosts.

  • Great spot, nice cosy modern bach

    Great spot, nice cosy modern bach. Very good to be out of the hustle and bustle, listening to the native birds. Still close enough to easily access all the Rotorua adventures.

    Great spot, very close to the water, would be perfect for anyone who wants to be on the lake. Space was tidy and well designed with everything you needed.
