  • Upon arrival to the house we were greeted with a beautiful view...

    Upon arrival to the house we were greeted with a beautiful view of a full size rainbow over the lake. We really enjoyed our stay. The home has everything you need and is close to many hiking trails. We enjoyed having a good internet connection and being able to unwind after a tramp around Lake Rotoiti in front of a smart tv with Netflix.

  • The Lock's bach is fantastic

    The Lock's bach is fantastic. It is modern, well laid out, the kitchen is really well set up with everything you need, it has great heating for winter and gets a superb view of the lake and the mountains surrounding the lake. A real treat.
