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). There are kid-friendly books and games, a tricycle and scooter (but BYO helmets) and a child-size kayak and several lifejackets. The big Hannahs Bay playground, a steam engine museum, and a covered and heated swimming pool are close by.

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 ample space for storing bikes and other sporting gear, and the custom-made bike wash & repair stand makes it easy to clean and tend to MTBs.

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, board games, jigsaw puzzles and books.

PLEASE NOTE: this is a residential area. No parties, and please be considerate of the neighbours, especially after 10pm as noise carries easily.

Special conditions: - Families preferred. - Pets allowed with prior approval and payment of $150 pet bond. - Property may not be suitable for escape artist dogs, big or small (i.e. fence has 10-15 cm gaps between rails and is approx 3 feet high in lower spots). - We may charge a security deposit in some circumstances (such as if you don't have a history of renting via Bookabach).

  • Great Lake access and water toys, would be brilliant for families

    Great Lake access and water toys, would be brilliant for families. Lots of bugs so use the window screens!

  • A fun way to introduce American friends to a classic kiwi bach

    A fun way to introduce American friends to a classic kiwi bach. The view of the lake by day and night were gorgeous. No tourists to be seen. MacDonalds just down the road with tea and coffee in china cups!
