Come and enjoy a lakeside slice of heaven!

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 and a steam engine museum 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 active types, we have kayaks and a variety of outdoor games. The secure garage has ample space for storing bikes and other sporting gear, and the custom-made bike wash and 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 and takeaway options within 5-10 minutes drive.

There's a wood burner and heaters to stay warm in winter, and plenty of fans (ceiling, wall-mounted 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.

Only 10 minutes drive to Rotorua CBD and only 7 minutes to the Redwoods entrance to Whakarewarewa forest

    Such a lovely wee Bach and a beautiful location right on the lake. Our 3 year old and 10 month old spent a lot of time playing in the front yard, and it was hard to convince the 3 year old to leave when the time came. It is obvious that Patric and Sarah care about the property and that they make a real effort to keep it comfortable for their guests. We had a great stay and will definitely be back!

    We were happy to be in a clean down to earth Bach that made us feel at home. It was really nice to sleep in a comfortable bed and sit on a comfortable sofa. Very cost place right on the waters edge.

    Quiet neighbourhood away from the tourist spots, yet very close to the Redwoods forest and a short drive from supermarket, shops and restaurants. The property is in a superb location, literally lakefront with superb views of the lake and birds. Our dog loved the fully fenced yard and the walks along the lake. The property feels like a home away from home, is comfortable, cosy with wood burner and has all that you need for home cooked meals ; especially appreciated items such as cooking oil, salt and pepper, flour and washing powder for the washing machine. We loved our stay so much, that we are planning to return. Very grateful for being able to bring our dog with us. We loved the close proximity to the Redwoods forest as we enjoy nature walks. We managed a SUP paddle and it was fantastic being able to walk to and from the lake in 2'. A great property for relaxation and close enough to all the activities Rotorua has to offer. Great to have board games for wet days and fun evenings The

  • The bach is an absolutely lovely place to stay - super clean!...

    The bach is an absolutely lovely place to stay - super clean! The views are incredible and the rustic feel of the bach contributes greatly to the all-over nature of New Zealand. We felt like we had our own private beach. The location is convenient to all the activities. We were able to fit in the gondola with lunch at the top, Hell's Gate and the Redwoods all in one day! .
