  • New bach - corrugated iron outside and ply with colourful fittings and furnishings inside.
  • Great for couples or a family
  • A short stroll to Te Weta Bay for swimming, kayaking & boating

Brand 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 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 & 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.

    Had a awesome time, use of the jetty is very handy for keeping the boat on the water. Room to park the truck and trailer. House was well presented and tidy.

  • This bach was a great place to stay

    This bach was a great place to stay. Newly build, lovely big deck, private, very clean and is literally 100m from the lake where their jetty is. The lake area is great as well, with a small reserve where you can relax.

  • Lovely bach to stay at

    Lovely bach to stay at. Plenty of room for the family and the owners have gone the extra mile to make it comfortable for you. It is close to the water and there are kayaks to use if you like. The jetty was great to dock the boat. (You will need to drive 5 minutes to the boat ramp). The driveway is a bit bumpy so you will not be able to park your boat there and may struggle with the car too, but there is some room to park further down the road on the grass. Great covered BBQ area for rainy days.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for the feedback. While the drive is not the standard of a suburban drive we personally have not had issues with access in our own or friends cars.
