We currently have VACANCIES in Dec 2018 and Jan 2019 other than those time I am sorry it is booked out.

N.B. Maximum number of ADULTS - SIX

Minimum 5 nights stay - Sorry no exceptions.

If you are looking for a comfy place to just go to and relax well this is it. You can lie on the couch and just watch the activity on the lake because the vista is changing all the time. You will certainly notice that each time you wake up!!

If you are into water sports it is a short 5 Knot boat ride and then you are away to various locations (wind dependant) for water ski-ing wake boarding or whatever.

Hamurana Golf Club has a nine hole course which is 15 minutes away towards Ngongataha.

To the keen fisho's, harling around the arm early morning and late evening can be productive. Nice fish to be caught spinning in the Kaituna just 5 minutes walk away or a short 5 minute drive to the trout pools. Map showing jigging and trolling spots around the Lake.

• Boat launching & retrieval at the Public Launching Ramp about 3 kms towards Rotorua. The Camp is closed to the Public. Trailer storage at rear of the property. Please let me know if you are bringing a boat.

• Pizza Oven, Bring your PIZZA BASES and make your own Pizza's.

* Fish Smoker.

•Deposit: 20% or one night's charge (which ever is greater) due within 48 hours of booking being accepted

    The bach was lovely and clean, very cosy and well appointed with everything you would need for a home away from home. Beautiful view out over the lake which can be enjoyed from either a lovely big deck in the sunshine or a comfy couch in the rain.

    Beautiful location, close to Okere Store and walk to waterfall to watch white water rafters. The view from the bach was amazing, very peaceful and relaxing. We had wet weather but still enjoyed our stay, thank you for the use of the kayaks, would definitely love to return.
