  • Well where do we start, it is just gorgeous

    Well where do we start, it is just gorgeous. The location is great and of course the amazing outlook over the lake. Heaps of friendly ducks to feed too. The bach was super clean and the quality of crockery, and cooking gear was excellent. Heaps of extras which you don't always get as some baches. With the fire and heat pump we were super warm, the bed was comfortable and we found we heaps of space. I had a mobile massage which Karen arranged where she came to the cottage, so relaxing. Thankyou

    We had a fantastic holiday in the lovely little kiwi bach by the lake. Lovely to hear the tuis singing in the trees, watch the ducks and swans on the lake and see the ever changing colours on the lake. It was especially beautiful first thing in the morning and at sunset when the sky and lake turned gold and pink. The use of the two kayaks really made our holiday for us and our youngest even went swimming in the lake! We also enjoyed the nearby luge and other activities. Would love to stay again

  • Absolutely gorgeous lottle spot

    Absolutely gorgeous lottle spot. Lake was perfect to cool off in and we really appreciated all the little added extras like fresh fruit, biscuits and even stuff for a cuppa ! We cant wait to come again.
