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. The Love Shack is a couples retreat, but for larger groups, the Pohutukawa room at the top of the property can be used as part of the total accommodation of the Love Shack. This room is equipped with a new queen size bed, TV, small kitchenette and en-suite. A BBQ and large dining table is available on the top terrace which offers views over the Lake.The adjoining room has three brand new single beds. In total this accommodates an additional five people. The "Pohutukawa" room is very private, with wonderful lake views over a native bush setting. It is only available to guests of the Love Shack during the week. .

  • The Shack is really lovely, well appointed and comfortable

    The Shack is really lovely, well appointed and comfortable. Location is close enough to Rotorua to visit easily but far enough away to be comfortably apart from the tourist scene. We loved the accessibility of the kayak, rowboat, etc. Only wish we could've stayed longer. Perfect stay!

  • Honestly the best Book a Bach we have ever stayed

    Honestly the best Book a Bach we have ever stayed. Loveshack is the perfect get a away for 1 or 2. Even on a storming night it was spectacular. Furnishings are luxurious and every thing is provided. Was very hard to leave and without a doubt will be back. If it was this good in Winter then can't wait for summer! Thanks again (from both of us :) )
