  • A spacious sunny north facing Bach right on the water's edge.
  • Stroll across the lawn to the stunning sandy beach or relax on the deck.
  • Kayaks and Life Jackets available for all ages.

Nestled away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to town.

The big deck has an outdoor table with a sun umbrella and BBQ all ready for summer entertaining or a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view.

Absolute lake edge with a beautiful sandy beach, the kids can play and kayak all day in front of the Bach.

Kayaks and Life Jackets available for all ages.

With amazing lake views from nearly every window you can choose your spot - laze on the window seat in the dining room reading or snoozing, muse over a jigsaw puzzle at the kauri writing desk or sit down to a feast at the big dining table.

A short boat ride to the hot springs; a great spot for water skiing; fishing, sailing, or just lounging around. Safe swimming for children from the sandy beach in front of the house.

In the winter time snuggle up warm and cosy sipping mulled wine in front of the Kent fire place listening to music and reading a book.

Access to this amazing hideaway is via a (private) metal forestry road (you don't have to have a 4WD!).

If you have a boat there is ample off-road parking (a 4WD is recommended due to steep driveway access). Most people are happy to park their boat trailers on the road above the Bach.

There is NO JETTY but a boat mooring out the front of the Bach is available - please advise at the time of booking if the mooring is required.

Whilst the house is on the lake edge, there is no driveway access to the lake, and there is a set of stairs from the parking area to the back door of the Bach.

Launching a boat is easy at the boat ramp in the bay (about 150m down the road from the house).

About 20 minutes drive into the heart of Rotorua just in case you want to tear yourselves away from this magical haven!

Pets by arrangement, please check with me and get the OK if you want to bring your dog.

Please leave the Bach clean and tidy.

Special conditions: 2 nights minimum stay. 50% deposit required to secure the booking.

  • A fabulous setting, felt like being on a boat - the kitchen...

    A fabulous setting, felt like being on a boat - the kitchen and dining area were that close to the water. The only difficulty was getting the cars out of the driveway at the end of the stay - very steep! Would recommend to others - great location hidden away ...
