Yes, its all here just waiting for you to come and soak up the ambiance and go home relaxed. Catch a trout from the front lawn or just sit on the spacious deck and watch the lake action unfold.

Hot spa pool, double glazed, fully insulated, new fire and heaters in every bedroom ensure a cozy stay during the cooler winter months.

A roomy home with modern appliances gives an atmosphere to unwind in. Open plan living spaces with separate cozy nooks gives a real sense of serenity. For those holiday makers just wanting to relax you have found your haven, for little ones there is a sandy beach to build sandcastles, bury treasure and learn to gain water confidence in the shallow lake bed. For those wanting more adventure the lake caters for all sorts of action packed water sport. For those looking for quieter ways to enjoy the surrounding then grab the paddles, find the hidden bays or be captivated by the numerous water fowl that call Lake Okareka home. For those looking to find the unusual then make sure you read the owners manual to get the location of that "something different" accessed only by boat.

Take a stroll in the evenings to search for glow worms along the nearby lakeside track.

Lake Okareka is the jewel in amongst a world renown lake playground of three other lakes i.e. Blue Lake, Green Lake and Lake Tarawera and is on route to other major tourist attractions.

World class mountain bike tracks are approx. 12 minutes riding from here.

Numerous walking tracks, providing stunning scenery such as the Lake Okareka boarded walk way (with huts designed for bird watching), the bush walks up to the Scenic Reserves from Lake Okareka and the world renown Blue Lake circut walk, cater for all levels of fitness.

    My parents, husband and 2 kids fell in love with this property and location! Amazing house, layout of house, facilities at the house and not to mention the beds were soo comfy! We love this Lake as have stayed before, but this location surpasses the last house. Even the neighbours are lovely!!! We all didn’t leave the house the entire Easter. Paradise! We are already talking about staying again! Hopefully Cathy would have us!!

    Fantastic location and a great property to stay at with all the toys & equipment available to play with. However if you do not completely put everything away, you will be scolded by the owner, even if you pay the $90.00 cleaning fee. We were accused of leaving the property "Yuk" evening after paying the cleaning fee, & the examples given where leaving a few dishes on the bench & not putting away 2 deck chairs.
