Description

  • Expansive views from the front deck
  • Only a 30 second walk to a secluded private picnic lakeside area
  • 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.

Special conditions: Smoking is allowed outside only. Same with pets - outside only please. We also have a 20% cancellation fee should you be unable to fulfill your confirmed booking.

  • 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.

    Great spot, beautiful views across the lake with large deck for outdoor alfresco entertaining. Living space for Adults and separate one for kids, nearby which we loved. Nice natural light and good size bathrooms and big kitchen. Well thought out property with lots to keep you entertained. We had two days of down pouring rain but we still had fun swimming in the lake and kayaking. WILL BE BACK!

    With the most amazing host in Emily-Jane, the most amazing views, and a fantastic games room, this was a wonderful stay. Can't say enough about how obliging Emily-Jane was. Plus the house has a fantastic vibe, you feel at home in someone elses. Best sleep of our trip!
