  • Amazing property! Lovely spot right on the lake

    Amazing property! Lovely spot right on the lake. The Bach is so well thought out/set up and had everything thing you need and some. We were able to get in a paddle in the kayaks before the rain came both days and the Bach was so lovely to be in we didn't mind that we had to spend a little more time indoors relaxing and not as much sightseeing as we initially planned. Rotorua itself we also found to be a great destination with so much to see and do. So we will be back for sure!!

    The shack is tucked away in bush ensuring privacy, and provides views over the lake. The whole experience delivered a great escape from busy city life.

  • Loved, loved, loved the tiny house accomodation

    Loved, loved, loved the tiny house accomodation. Serene setting very close to lake front. Property was in top condition with updated fixtures, decor and ammenities. Loved the home comforts of being able to have a cuppa on arrival and snug rugs on colder nights. Had the extra bonus of hosts taking us by boat to hot pools.

    Beautiful location, thoroughly enjoyed the quiet, privacy of the shack with stunning views over the lake. Ammaculate and well kitted out accomodation, very homely. Thanks so much for sharing your Bach and also the shed full of watersport goodies!
