This much-loved bach, built and owned by the same family since the 1950s, offers the perfect escape for couples, friends or family. Fantastic views across the lake to the mountain, with only a few steps across the lawn till you're dipping your toes in the water. There are two bedrooms inside the bach (two single beds in each), along with bathroom, kitchen and lounge dining which features original timbers and a gas fireplace for nippy nights. There is also a very comfortable cabin at the rear of the property with queen size bed and extra single along with ensuite. The driveway is lined with native bush which the tui and kereru love, and at night you can wander up and see the glow worms. This property offers two kayaks for use while you are on holiday, a jetty if you choose to bring a boat, and there is a range of life jackets from child to XL adult Most mod-cons and home comforts available, including SKY TV. All you need to bring is your linen, food and a drop of whatever takes your fancy. This is the place where the views are breathtaking, the fish are jumping and your worries melt away.

  • A fantastic family bach which is iconic and beautiful

    A fantastic family bach which is iconic and beautiful. If you want a quiet cabin like cosy piece of paradise then this is the one you should book. We will return as it was wonderful. It even came with friendly ducks who visited for a sneaky slice of bread of two each day.
