Popular all year round, The Love Shack is located on the shore of Lake Rotoiti at Okere Falls, 20km from Rotorua city off State Highway 33 to Tauranga. Best described by guests as a "Modern Scandinavian" twist on the kiwiana themed bach that we all love and admire.

Visit the Okere Falls Food Store/Cafe/Beer Garden by boat or a short stroll. A great place to stock up. There are numerous activities close by including bush walks, white water rafting, golfing and thermal attractions.

  • Beautiful setting looking across the inlet to the sunset every night

    Beautiful setting looking across the inlet to the sunset every night. Cannot hear the traffic once inside so very peaceful to sleep.

    This lakeside Kiwi bach provided us a tranquil and serene getaway next to the stunning Lake Rotoiti. The place was clean and well-appointed with lovely attention to detail and had everything we needed for a cosy weekend by the water. We were able to do some kayaking, paddle boarding and star gazing right next to our doorstep. Thank you Florence for a magical weekend and we can't wait to come back next time.

    The property is nestled in beautifully landscaped native growth at the bottom of a hill on lake Rotoiti. Private, cosy and packed with thoughtful amenities you'll feel privileged to spend you time relaxing at the Love Shack. Though we weren't able to fully utilise the boat shed's offerings we were awed by the generosity of the owners. Countless kayaks, 2 SUP and a lovely rowboat at your disposal to fully enjoy the lake. Should you want to leave the Love Shack the Okere Falls were neat to explore
