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.

    Fond memories of sitting on the sunny window seat with my little granddaughter watching the birds on the glistening lake and reading stories - a cosy fire in the evening - perfect

  • The bach is right on the lake's edge

    The bach is right on the lake's edge. Great for walks & loved being able to take our dog with us. We had plenty of wood for the fire and we had an enjoyable stay. Thanks!

  • The property is great

    The property is great. Beautiful location on the lake and with it still being so close (only a short drive) to everything Rotorua has to offer it would be hard to beat! It was freezing cold during our visit but the house was still really warm and cosy. Would definitely recommend!

    I don't know what blissed me out more- the amazing view or the most comfortable bed in the world. The kitchen had everything I needed and the window seats were perfectly placed to enjoy the view. Woddburner with plenty of dry wood and kindling made it toasty warm in no time and provided ambience- and we loved the Soda Springs hot pools which are about 20 mins drive away, we went twice and wished we had the to go again.
