For anyone wanting the perfect retreat, be that the whole family, or a romantic weekend escape, this bach has everything you need.

We have recently refurbished the bach, new bathroom, kitchen decking, plush new carpet. All new fitout, and everything you need for a relaxing and indulgent stay in our piece of paradise.

This is the perfect base for all of your events and adventures in Rotorua. Either ride or drive, it is only a short drive and you are in the Whakawerawera forest for mountainbiking and running trails. Stay at the lake and enjoy water sports, swimming, kayaking or trout fishing. Either fish off the nearby jetty or take our Canadian canoe out and try your luck. You will be 50m from the boat ramp, swimming and picnic areas and jetty. And a short walk to the start of the popular Okareka boardwalk and walkway. Or stay home and soak up the sun and relax on the deck.

The Blue Lake is about 1 km away and Lake Tarawera a five minute drive.

The unit has a garage alongside which has a gym setup and secure space for your bikes and sports toys.

The unit is next door to our own house. If we’re around, we are more than happy to share some local knowledge of the trails or various activities/attractions to maximise the fun factor while you are here.

Please also note there is no cellphone reception at Lake Okareka…but we think this is a great way to forget about the world and truly unwind.

  • We had a fantastic stay

    We had a fantastic stay. A well kept and tastefully decorated flat, and the owners were lovely. We made use of the canoe on the lake which was great fun too. Cant wait to come back sometime soon!

  • We loved this Bach very relaxing listening to the flutters of tui...

    We loved this Bach very relaxing listening to the flutters of tui flying around and with only a short 1minute walk to the lake edge everyone had a great time! Bach itself was very accomodating with a fresh modern feel and owners were great with quick response and easy to deal with :)
