Come & enjoy a lakeside slice of heaven!

This cosy, fully furnished 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 good book, your favourite drink and a beautiful view of the lake

- swim and play in the clean, clear waters of Lake Rotorua (the shallow water and sandy lakebed are safe and pleasant for all ages) literally a stone's throw from the front door

- refuel on the deck (in summer) or warm up in front of the woodburner (in winter) 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 bicycles and other sporting equipment without cluttering up the house.

The open-plan 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.

If you need them, a hairdryer, iron, ironing board and drying rack are available.

There's no TV (ideal if you want to unplug and enjoy our board games, jigsaw puzzles and the growing collection of books) but we have unlimited wifi for those who bring their own devices.

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.

    You walk out of the garden and you almost in the lake. It's very nice and peaceful!

  • This warm and cosy bach on the lakeside was a great place...

    This warm and cosy bach on the lakeside was a great place to stay. It was clean and comfortable, with well stocked conveniences eg. gladwrap, very helpful! It's near the airport and not too far from the Redwoods forest with great walks and mountainbiking. The lake is also pleasant for swimming and relaxing by. Really enjoyed our stay, thanks Patric and Sarah.
