Enjoy the quiet location of this Otautu Bay holiday home. Approx 30 minutes (38 Km) from Rotorua and 45 mins from Whakatane. Relax and enjoy the tranquillity at the house or launch the boat on to the lake and enjoy the trout fishing or water sports. The house has everything you could need for that getaway break. Timber features throughout the house. Large covered deck area with a huge table to make the most of the outdoor dining. We have two kayaks and a paddle board available for use, with a selection of life jackets also available. There is a pontoon on the lake for swimming. The back section is fully fenced so suitable for younger children & dogs. Wake up to the morning birdsong. The quietness of this location is amazing. Firewood provided for those winter nights.

Special conditions:

*Please note there is no internet/wifi/cellphone coverage at the bach and only limited coverage on the lake side* There is, however, a landline available for local calls. The bach does not have a full size oven or hob. We have a benchtop oven (which is big enough to roast a chicken), a microwave and a two hob hotplate which sits on the bench. The BBQ has a hood and can also be used for roasting.

    A great little place to stay, had everything we needed and being able to take the Kayaks down to the lake was amazing. The eds were definitely the best beds we have ever stayed in away from home! Perfect little place for a getaway, thanks so much!

    Really enjoyed our stay here, clean and tidy, shame the the lake was a no go because of the algal bloom lets hope this will improve in time, but saying that there are plenty of lakes 5 minutes away, so we just loaded the kayaks up and away we went great fun cheers Chries

  • Great bach, had everything we needed

    Great bach, had everything we needed. Excellent communication and help from Chris leading up to our stay and on arrival. The paddleboard and kayaks were a hit with the family. Peaceful, quiet, scenic area but not too far off the beaten track, everything within a reasonable drive - just what we wanted. Thanks for a memorable stay.
