Come & enjoy a lakeside slice of heaven!

This cosy bach is a perfect getaway spot for couples, families or small groups of friends.

The handy location on the eastern shores of Lake Rotorua is perfect for any type of holiday, whatever your pace:

- relax in the sun-soaked window seats with a beautiful view of the lake

- swim and play in the clean, shallow waters of Lake Rotorua, literally a stone's throw from the front door

- refuel and unwind after a fun-filled day exploring some of the world's best mountain biking trails and walking tracks.

For families with young children, the property is fully fenced and the house is stocked with essentials (high chair, changing table, baby bath, safety latches for cupboards/drawers). To keep the little ones happy and busy, there's a big trampoline, kid-friendly books and games, a tricycle and scooter (but BYO helmets) and a child-size kayak and several lifejackets. Nearby, there's a steam engine museum, the big Hannahs Bay playground, and a covered and heated swimming pool.

For couples, we highly recommend getting a massage, spa treatment and/or dining at the Waiora Resort, less than 100m away.

For adventurers, the secure garage has space to safely store bikes and other sporting gear, and you can clean and tend to your MTB using the custom-made bike wash & repair stand.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make your own meals, and the gas BBQ is great for grilling up a feed. Alternatively, there's a wide range of dining & takeaway options within 5-10 minutes drive.

There's a wood burner and heaters to stay warm in winter, and plenty of ceiling, wall and standing fans to keep you cool in summer.

Useful amenities include a hairdryer, iron, ironing board, washing machine and drying rack.

There's no TV, but there's unlimited WiFi -- or you can unplug and enjoy our board games, jigsaw puzzles and books and spend time connecting with each other :)

Special conditions: Families preferred. Pets allowed with prior approval and payment of $150 pet bond. We may charge a bond to guests who don't yet have a sufficient amount of positive feedback.

  • The bach had everything we needed plus much more

    The bach had everything we needed plus much more. Warm and cosy feel with a great view of the lake. The wood burner is a nice luxury in the colder months along with the board games for rainy days/nights. A good location for travelling between various sights of Rotorua. Would highly recommend and certainly stay again.
