You will love our lakefront Kiwi bach in quiet Otumutu Lagoon and enjoy every moment holidaying at this unique and relaxing place.

Stunning views, a large deck, a fully secure boatshed and safe swimming beach with pontoon are just the beginning. Combine the joys of peaceful lakefront privacy with the benefits of access to the lake and grounds to explore.

Enjoy homemade pizzas in the woodfired oven, use of BBQ comfy beds, Blu Ray player/dvd, freeview TV and small library of books and games.In winter enjoy the cosy fire place including firewood and heaters in all rooms. There's even a professionally built treehouse, great for the kids.

Enjoy the use of kayaks, life jackets, pontoon and cold smoker and decide if you leave your phone on as this is one of a handful of houses that gets full cellphone coverage.

With this bach being one of the last on the lake to see the setting sun, Kiwi holidays don't get any better than this - . You can even bring your dog! (by arrangement only).

    Location is perfect, boathouse and little swimming beach are idyllic, garden is gorgeous. Shower a bit of a challenge with 6 kids on board but would not put us off booking again and again...

    Unfortunately the weather was absolutely against us but we loved the spot and the bach is perfect for accommodating two families or four couples. The bach is so well equipped that even in the weather we had, we had a great time. It's easy to see that nice weather would make it a magic experience. The hosts were great and made the experience very easy. We'd certainly go back!
