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.

  • Great location

    Great location. Spacious home. Heaps to do within the home, on the lake and surrounding area. Very peaceful....excepting for the sound of ducks and frogs which were nice. Our weekend was rainy but the lake water was warm and we still had fun.

  • We had the most amazing stay in this little slice of paradise

    We had the most amazing stay in this little slice of paradise. The house was so well set up for our two families. The view first thing in the morning was transfixing it was so stunning. A real testament to this house, our children didn’t want to do the touristy things in Rotorua, they just wanted to spend time in the kayaks, fishing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Can’t recommend enough. They were great to deal with which made the whole process easy.
