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.

    The property was clean, tidy and felt just like home. The location was superb, right next to the lake and not far from central. Looking forward to coming back!
