Our boat shed is a 3 bedroom Kiwi bach looking out directly on to the waters of Lake Rotoehu. Each of the three bedrooms offers perfect views of the lake. For the cooler winter months there are panel heaters and electric blankets in each of the bedrooms and a lovely wood burning fire in the open plan living area. In summer, throw open the doors and enjoy the lake to its fullest. We have 2 kayaks for use by guests and a sunny, west facing balcony to watch the kids play on the nearby reserve, read a book or watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Explore the local area with its many attractions in Rotorua, our local hot pools, the café in Rotoma and see if you can find the stunning waterfall behind the fire station. Bring your boat and launch at the boat ramp around the corner, the lake is full of rainbow trout and has no restrictions, but you will need a license to fish in fresh water in NZ. There is a trout cookbook at the bach, but if you have any fabulous recipes we’d love to hear from you.

It is the perfect base for your winter or summer break or the place to wind down from after your grueling running or cycling event.

We hope that you enjoy your stay at our boat shed and look forward to your feedback. We hope to see you again in the not too distant future and please feel free to pass on our details to your friends and family.

Given the location, phone and internet coverage is sporadic, but you can generally get a signal if you’re patient. You can log into the local internet service Zenbu and create a one off account which will give you a good connection if you need to stay in touch. Otherwise enjoy the fact that you can be uncontactable!

There is a gas BBQ for your use, please clean this before you leave.

Special conditions: Please note that there is a wood burning fireplace so special care must be taken when using this especially with children. The garden and deck at the front are not suitable for very young children.

  • Great quiet location, 30 minute drive from Rotorua city

    Great quiet location, 30 minute drive from Rotorua city. Very peaceful and had everything we needed. Loved waking up and walking out the front door being greeted by the beautiful lake. Went in the winter and made good use of the fire and fire wood that was available.

  • The house is located in a very beautiful area 30 min drive...

    The house is located in a very beautiful area 30 min drive from Rotorua. The first thing you see when you wake up in the morning is a glorious lake. It's very quite and peaceful. If I was to rate the house on its own, it would be 3 stars as it's very old, however the location brings up to the next level. The kitchen has got everything you can possibly need.
