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. Self contained, The Love Shack makes it easy to relax. The new kitchen is fitted with a modern cooktop, microwave, full size fridge/freezer for extended stays.

The private jetty offers the options to bring your own 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. On your return tie up at the jetty and step ashore. Visit the Okere Falls Store/Cafe/Beer Garden by boat or a short stroll. 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 brand new stand up Paddle boards for our guests to use as well as a dinghy.

  • Awesome little couples place

    Awesome little couples place. Very private. Though it maybe a little less so at peak times as it shares the lake front with the main house at the top of the property. Steep walk to the shack but worth it once you have lugged all of the necessities down. It has been renovated to a high quality. We had a wet stay and were forced to stay inside most of the time but it was comfortable and warm.

  • Beautiful lakefront setting - wee bit of a walk to get down...

    Beautiful lakefront setting - wee bit of a walk to get down there if you have heavy luggage but totally worth it! A very well equipped and comfy little bach which has been beautifully renovated with new kitchen and bathroom. Super comfy bed and bedding! Hope to get back there one day.
