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. The Love Shack has a rustic blend of plywood walls, sexy feature lighting and lush soft furnishings which makes for a romantic and relaxing retreat. The Love Shack now has a brand new Queen size Sleepy Head Chiropractic bed- super comfy! The new kitchen is fitted with a modern cooktop, microwave, full size fridge/freezer for extended stays.

Private jetty offers the option to bring your boat and try your luck at fishing for Rainbow Trout, or just playing on the water and visiting the many bays and beaches including the famous Manupirua Hot Pools which are only accessible by boat. 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. Enjoy some of the best Mountain biking tracks in the world,the Redwood forest is 20 minutes from here or just kick back and enjoy kayaking on the lake. We now have new stand up Paddle boards as well as a dinghy for use in the inlet.

  • Tucked away down a long bush clad path, Florence and Rod have...

    Tucked away down a long bush clad path, Florence and Rod have made something really special. A simple shack with a high end finish that makes you not want to leave. It's private, right on the lake and we have made some amazing memories.

  • Sehr schoenes gepflegte Haus mit spektakulaerer Lage

    Sehr schoenes gepflegte Haus mit spektakulaerer Lage. Optimal um die Regio um Rotarua zu erkunden. Wir konnten Standup paddeln und Kayak fahren. Hat uns sehr viel Spass gemacht. Vielen Dank Florence.

  • WOW! I couldn't speak more highly of this little gem on lake...

    WOW! I couldn't speak more highly of this little gem on lake rotoiti. It is the perfect romantic getaway for a couple. The cabin is refurbished and oh-so-stylish with a mix of modern and traditional touches. Lots of attention to detail ie beautiful hand cream and the majority of products in the cabin are Eco friendly and cruelty free. Would recommend to anyone except the elderly and physically impaired as it is a long steep walk up the the car. Other than that it is simply paradise. Thanks

  • Absolutely loved our stay at the Love Shack

    Absolutely loved our stay at the Love Shack. Our travels have taken us all over NZ over the years and we've stayed in some amazing homes and baches and the Love Shack is easily our favourite. You will not regret booking this bach. We spent our days down by the water, stand up paddle boarding, swimming, lazing and having afternoon naps in the sun. It's location is fantastic. Florence was easy to liaise with and she has certainly done something special with The Love Shack. Cosy & quiet.
