  • It's a lovely large, warm home

    It's a lovely large, warm home. Plenty of space, and lots of things to do for the kids. Would be great even in poor weather. This end of the lake is calm and safe for beginners. Located in the Okere Falls community near the Okere Falls store. It's fun to watch the kayakers/rafters take on the rapids.

    Absolutely divine location and very comfortable home. 11 people of mixed generations had enough space for all, with everything we needed. It is peaceful, beautiful and fun on the water a dream.
