  • 10 minutes in your speed boat to the Manupirua Hot Pools
  • 200m to public boat ramp and a short run outside the 5 knot buoys to amazing waterski/wakeboard runs
  • 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 together to create a large family space.

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.

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 carefully drive your trailer to the property.

Special conditions: Maximum 8 people (including children), no more than 2 vehicles, no parties, prefer families; not groups of adults

  • Great place to relax

    Great place to relax. 2 kayaks, lots of lifevests for kids. Look forward seeing the house once renovation has been finished. Can anyone tell me the name of the bird that whistles the first line of 'La Cucaracha' from 6am in the morning? Our family enjoyed it so much.
