One of two Baches on this large section situated on the lakefront with stunning views over Lake Rotoiti.

Large deck overlooking the lake, mezzanine floor - a lake view from just about every room!

The three double beds are in an open plan area on the mezzanine floor. This area is semi partitioned for privacy.

There is a bunk room under the deck which is only suitable for summer time containing a double bunk and a single bed.

Close to Hells Gate and a boat ride to the hot springs - great spot for water skiing, fishing, sailing or just lounging around!! There is no TV reception but plenty of other things to do!

Access is via a metal road through the Tikitere Forest.

Off road parking.


There is NO JETTY but a boat mooring is available for use and the boat ramp is 150m down the road.

Please let us know if you want to use the boat mooring at the time of booking.

There is room for a boat to park off the road but we recommend a 4 wheel drive for the parking area in front of the Bach, as the drive entry is quite steep. Most people are happy to park their boat trailers on the roadside above the Bach.


The property is not suitable for people with small children (under 5's) as there is a large internal staircase leading up to a mezzanine floor. The beds are on the mezzanine floor and this area is high above the lounge, we do not think this area is safe for small children

Pets by arrangement, please inform me 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.

    Lovely place to stay and relax. The view over the lake is fantastic. Rotorua and back is very manageable. Kids enjoyed a go on the kayaks.

    A fantastic location and a view to die for. Swimming and kayaking in the lake was divine. The house was a typical kiwi bach, well equipped but basic. The communal sleeping arrangements on the mezzanine floor were fun but may not suit everyone, especially if the group has a snorer - like we did (blush).
