  • 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.

  • The most glorious location and property

    The most glorious location and property. Perfect introduction to New Zealand for our family from England and perfect introduction to kayaking for all of us! Absolutely blown away by our fabulous holiday. Thank you most sincerely, on behalf of all of us (and our darling retriever!)

  • Fantadtic location which was quiet and absolute lake front

    Fantadtic location which was quiet and absolute lake front. The kitchen, dining, lounge is fantastic for larger groups and the house is full of charcter.

    A stunning house in an idyllic location, very private and peaceful, beautifully tranquil with the early morning sun. The sheltered jetty was fantastic. We truly loved staying at this special place.

  • Amazing location and very private

    Amazing location and very private. Great to have a jetty and very close to all the lake has to offer. The house however is very tied and needs quite a bit of work doing to it. The are some rotten parts that are going to need work and there only the very bare essentials there. There is a nice new BBQ and an open fire pit which is great. I looks like the owners have started doing it up with work on the roof and drainage underway. Good luck with the works.

    Owner/manager responds:

    I asked what he meant by bare essentials, and he said cooking oil and salt for example, we now have salt and pepper, oil, coffee and t-bags in the pantry. Though sometimes these get packed up by mistake and taken by the guests, so we will do out best to keep them replenished. Also we mention in the Ad that we are working to return the house to her former glory, so hopefully that was not a suprise to this guest that there was there was work be done at the property when no one is staying.
