A great style of furniture choices throughout - chunky and well made no impractical flimsy flat packs here.

A day spent here is a holiday you'll never forget with all the Kiwiana touches and retro furnishings to take you back to the days when lazy holidays meant swimming and Kayaking,, board games, cricket on the lawn, fishing and telling stories around the BBQ table, bike riding, long walks and a post card sent to friends of your adventures at the lake, electronic devices come second to the scenery and long lazy days.

The 21st century is definitely here too with high speed Wifi, flat screen TV, Bluetooth stereo, all the kitchen gadgets and modern appliances you could ever want when you're both home and away.

Only steps away from your deck the lake is very shallow and safe for swimming for all ages while suitable for smaller children too adult supervision is a must.

The bird life are sure to visit and come close enough to touch, a handy piece of bread and you'll have a friend for life.

  • This cottage is in a beautiful situation, just a few metres back...

    This cottage is in a beautiful situation, just a few metres back from the lake, with a very sunny aspect, and plenty of room for the kids to play. The furnishings and decor are even better than appears from the photos. It was fantastic for our family of five.

  • An awesome place to chill out

    An awesome place to chill out. Lake front complete with awesome views and friendly ducks. Has everything needed for a relaxing time away. Warm and cosy on chilly day/nights with the fire and heat pump. We would love to come back.

  • We loved the place and look forward to coming back again

    We loved the place and look forward to coming back again. The retro look was great, all the furniture and kitchen was new and in great shape.

  • What a perfect place for our family holiday! I am from Hawaii...

    What a perfect place for our family holiday! I am from Hawaii and had never been to NZ. I am familiar with Home Away but not BookaBach. It left me a bit worried... Karen was great to work with and the pictures of the place are true to reality. My boys (10 and 7) found little building toys right away. All the small touches were great. We felt safe and the place was trendy, clean and in great repair. My daughter (13) loved her detached retreat and she's in love with the dishes. Great memories!
