This classice 70's style Lake House, set on the edge of Lake Okareka is somewhere to escape for a few quiet days of tranquility. Sit on the deck and just watch the ducks and pukeko's. Maybe take a quiet paddle in the kayaks across the lake to the beach or troll a lure to catch a trout. You will need your own tackle and a licence of course! Fishing in this lake is reknown for being very productive! Or maybe you could take a walk along one of Rotorua's award winning walkways around the edge of the lake and farm perimeter. Lucy Playne one of the farm owners runs a top class horse trekking business on the adjacent farm and if thats you and you want to look across the region the views from up top on the farm are nothing less than sensational. Call Lucy on 07 3628185 or for the website look up Horse Trekking Lake Okareka. The very popular sport of biking today in and around Rotorua offers up to 100 kilometres of trails through forestry tracks, the trail heading to Taupo or simply around the lakes. It really is a bikers paradise! The world mountain bike champs known as Crankworx are being staged in Rotorua in March.

Lake Okareka is one of sixteen lakes in the Rotorua District. It is only 11ks to Rotorua central which has abundant restaurants, cafes and shopping but tucked away from the main busy tourist routes, you can enjoy a quiet peaceful environment. Only minutes from the Blue Lake. We have 3 excellent golf courses to choose from and if its hiking the Tarawera Trail alongside Lake Tarawera can take up to 4.5 hours to walk to Hot Water Beach, or 3 to the Champagne Pool at the Wairua Stream before you come to Hot Water beach, and you can arrange to be collected by the Water Taxi on phone 07 3628080.

This house is situated on the lake edge and children are welcome but one has to watch small children close to the lake edge.

  • The house was very clean and tidy

    The house was very clean and tidy. We did find the maintenance a little lacking, for example the light fittings were missing. Several light bulbs weren't working and some of the outdoor furniture were in poor condition. Overall, the property met our needs and we loved our stay and we would recommend it to family and friends. The location was stunning.

  • Perfect house for our family holiday

    Perfect house for our family holiday. Well set out. Plenty of space. Tabletennis table, pool table great to have as well as the kayaks. The view was perfect to wake up to each morning. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely be staying again!

    Quiet location & what a view to wake up to every morning with it located right on the lake. Great for a big family. Love the idea of no TV downstairs by the dining table, allowed for family to spend time together. Didn't use the TV upstairs once because there's so much to do - ping pong, pool table & kayaks. Beautifully made beds with linen ready when we arrived. Big kitchen & 2 fridges meant we could stock up for days without leaving the house. Will definitely stay again.
