  • 2 minute walk to lake
  • Private park-like setting

Just a quick 2 minute walk to the lake! This large 'chalet' like home is sited on a private, peaceful section with huge trees and a great lawn area for the kids to play. Not lakefront.

Perfect as a central meeting point for catching up with family/friends from around the North Island, or any larger group set-up, as it sleeps 14 - 16.

This accommodation provides the basics, in a setting of 'rustic charm'. It WOULD NOT BE SUITABLE for those groups requiring a 4-5 star hotel environment!

It is however, perfect for groups to enjoy each others company and to get away from the 'rat-race' for a peaceful break.

World class locations for Boating, Kayaking , Mountain-biking, Water-skiing, etc are literally just minutes away!......or if its 'time out' you're after, relax on the deck, or check out the many cafe/dining options available in nearby Rotorua.

In keeping with the peaceful setting, we ask that noise is kept to an absolute minimum after 10pm. We have, on occasion, been forced to use bond money for gifts to appease disgruntled neighbours!

    We had a great weekend at the chalet near the lake. Kids loved the flying fox. Reasonably priced, basic accommodation in a beautiful part of the country. Nice big secluded section.

    Great location, nice setting and the kids loved the outdoor grounds and kayaks. Unfortunately some of the furnishings/beds require urgent attention and were unusable.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Glad they enjoyed it however need to check on issues as this was the first I had heard of it, there was a bed issue that I had communicated to the renter prior to her going.........................(wondering if she hadn't read the email in entirety) however there were 4 extra beds to the 12 we had advertised so there was plenty +++ for their party. I have requested more feedback so I can action asap.
