You will love our lakefront Kiwi bach in quiet Otumutu Lagoon and enjoy every moment holidaying at this unique & 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 & grounds to explore.

Enjoy homemade pizzas in the woodfired oven, use of BBQ comfy beds, Blu Ray player/dvd, freeview TV & small library of books & 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).

    Beautiful spot with view birds and wildlife. Boat shed very handy. BBQ dirty and did not use. Pizza oven great.

  • View was amazing, location was awesome

    View was amazing, location was awesome. Extra room outside was great for teenagers but other kids were a bit nervous with their room off the porch but still slept well. Very well setup bach. Definitely will be returning for another stay.
