  • Bach designed in a minimalist fashion for relaxed, holiday feel.

The Retreat is a 290 sq m architecturally designed house and was built in 2007 in a minimalistic, open plan style. It is spacious enough to comfortably accommodate 2 families. The lake house has a holiday ambiance so that you can feel relaxed and peaceful. A newly added games room will keep children and adults alike entertained.

It is perched on a bush clad hillside so you feel as if you are literally floating above magnificent Lake Rotoiti. The sunsets viewed from the large front deck will truly take your breath away. Direct access to the Lake (1 minute walk) to a private beach. Perfect for children as is shallow and generally protected from the prevailing wind.

Only a 20 mins drive from the many attractions of central Rotorua yet far enough away to feel you are in another world. Only a 7 min drive to Hell's Gate and 12 mins to the airport.

    Wonderful house away from the main road (quiet) - big kitchen and living area, with deck overlooking the lake. Kids loved the bunks, kayaks, dingy and games room. Bedrooms and bathrooms were nice and clean. Hoping to coming back in winter when we can get the fire going!

  • Nice views and tranquility

    Nice views and tranquility. Game room a big plus if you have kids, or grown-up kids! Beds a bit rough for our taste, but overall a nice, unique Rotoiti spot.
