Description

  • 2 minute walk to lake
  • Private park-like setting
  • TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR LOW-SEASON PRICING SPECIALS!...See Below!

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 12.

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!

Please provide ALL OWN LINEN, including sheets, towels and tea-towels. Duvets/Pillows/Blankets are provided.

Cleaning; Please leave house tidy, surfaces all wiped, bathrooms clean and house vacuumed.

PLEASE REMOVE ALL OWN RUBBISH AND RECYCLING FROM PROPERTY ON DEPARTURE. Costs to remove any refuse left on-site will be deducted from bond money prior to refund!

  • Heaps of space would be perfect for big groups

    Heaps of space would be perfect for big groups. However there were mice/rats in the ceiling and the shower was blocked.

    The property met our needs well and is in keeping with other reviews. It isn't luxury accommodation but that isn't what we paid for. Great for a number of people - as we were - for an event at Blue Lake. Everything functioned well and showers had great pressure.

  • Lovely location with private access to the lake front

    Lovely location with private access to the lake front. A good old fashion NZ batch, ideal for the extended family or a larger group of friends. Batch suited our needs and the owners kindly let us bring along our dog. Nothing like sitting on the deck and only hearing Tui's in the morning. The drive way entrance and circular internal stairway provided some early entertainment, but all good. We would happily stay again

    Location is fantastic, gardens (and neighbours) around the property great for young children as is the nearby (easy walking distance) beach and the kindergarten play area next door. Lots of room in the house, two living areas very good for a large family. We had 8 adults and 5 children under 5 and didn't feel crowded, although we grandparents enjoyed the quiet of the sleepout at nightime! House amenities were quite basic but quite adequate and the BBQ was great. We would certainly recommend.

    The only thing we didn't like was that it was quite dirty - it needed a really good spring clean. The windows had a lot of black mould on the insides and a lot of spider webs on the exterior - the duvet covers and mattress covers were in desperate need of a wash. Other than that, it was good for staying with lots of children and two families. The two living areas worked really well. I'd check that the windows and bed covering had been recently cleaned before I booked again.
