  • 10 minutes in your speed boat to the Manupirua Hot Pools

  • Water sport heaven - swim, fish off the jetty, sail, paddle, row, ski, wakeboard - do the lot!

Defined by its awe-inspiring lake setting and total seclusion, this landmark property is steeped in local history and has all the ingredients that make it a superb holiday retreat - it's the place where memories are made!

Built in 1986 and architecturally designed, the house faces north for optimal sun and the open layout draws kitchen, dining and living areas together.

Beautifully positioned for the panoramic vista, offering stunning views from the moment you wake and have breakfast with the sun rising over the lake.

An aquatic playground, Lake Rotoiti is renowned for trout fishing, kayaking, white water rafting and thermal pools. This exquisite lake-front sanctuary places you in a unique position to enjoy it all.

Sharing a private access, it's important to us that people who stay here are content with soaking up all this unique spot has to offer - not constantly coming and going in cars up and down the driveway.

We don't mind two small families, but we're not interested in this being the entertainment mecca for groups and definately no parties!

The driveway is pretty rumpty-humpty with a lot of vegetation hanging over it and it's not super wide (single vehicle only). You can launch your boat at Otaramarae and drive your trailer to the property.

No more than two cars at the property please.

Special conditions: No smoking No pets No parties No additional guests staying beyond those booked. Prefer families; not groups of adults. No more than 2 vehicles on the property

    Wonderful location, plenty of space, great fire.... In cooler months a dryer would be handy for towels.

  • Stunning location, spacious and well equipped home

    Stunning location, spacious and well equipped home. Property is very private yet close to Rotorua city, local dairy, and transfer station which was a plus, when disposing our rubbish. If the purpose for booking this property is to get away, relax, have family fun on the lake and indulge in the freedom of a wonderful environment, then we would highly recommend that they consider booking!
