  • A true New Zealand bach experience but with mod cons to make your stay memourable /

Just 45 minutes from Dunedin City, between Outram and Lawrence you will find this

lakeside bach in a small fishing village. This is value for money that the family can afford.

This bach sits high overlooking the lake where perch and trout are there for the catching or take the dinghy out for a

row and explore the nearby islands. Hike the nearby forestry tracks that skirt the lake or bring your mountain bikes for miles of tracks through the pine forest.

If you just want to relax, sit on the veranda and read your book,

then have a meal cooked on the Bar-b-que. Kids can safely swim in the lagoon just 2 minutes away. Wander by the other huts and say hi to the locals.

At night go outside and check out the night sky. With no street light pollution

you will be amazed at the amount of stars you will see, or relax in front of the TV watching your DVDs or freeview.

Take any afternoon drive to nearby Lawrence for a great pub meal (best chips around) and visit the historical gold fields.

Take a picnic down to the Hydro dam and spend some time exploring the area.

15min up the road is the wind farm, get up close to these giants and enjoy the views of the rolling hills.

  • Property was comfortable, everything was there that you needed

    Property was comfortable, everything was there that you needed. Location was everything that we expected. Quiet, fishing, scenery, and just being away from everything. Perfect place.

  • This is a laid-back kiwi bach - just what we wanted

    This is a laid-back kiwi bach - just what we wanted... The photos and descriptors in the bookabach ad presented it honestly and we loved the style which allowed us to kick back and relax and enjoy. Nothing was "too precious" yet nothing was missing from making this a great relaxation space... as the ad said: "Magic!".

  • Mahinerangi lake is a beautiful place to stay

    Mahinerangi lake is a beautiful place to stay. The accommodation is quite basic, even if, nothing is missing. The view on the lake is magnificent. This place is a perfect place for a break alone or with some good friends. We are french, and we stayed three weeks in New-Zealand. This place has been my favorite.
