One of the best lake views you'll find from a wide, sheltered, sunny deck, plus a large (1570sqm) section to play on, park cars, pitch tents, whatever! A classic 1940s bach with 1970s additions set in native bush with native birds to wake up to and sunsets to die for.

One minute walk to the lake edge, two minutes to the lockable on-water boatshed where you can keep your (up to 5.5m) powerboat and water toys safe, protected from the elements and so convenient - better than a jetty! There's a one-off $60 charge for use of the boatshed during your stay.

Been to Rotoiti lately? Recent years have seen a big investment in upgrading the water quality and it is now beautifully clear year-round and fantastic for swimming.

Whether it is trout fishing, water skiing, visiting the fabulous boat-access-only Manupirua hot pools, taking nearby bush walks, popping down to the trendy Okere Falls Store and cafe/beer garden, or taking in the many attractions of Rotorua (20 minutes away) this is a great base. Comfortably furnished and well equipped, with a congenial old lounge, open fire, wetback stove, and good appliances. Newly carpeted 2018 and heat pump fitted 2017. A real bonus is the fantastic spring water: pure, perfect, cool drinking water straight from the tap!

With a steep hill behind to the southwest, you are out of the prevailing wind, making this a year round option for a peaceful and romantic break or a refreshing (salt-free!) change from the usual family holiday by the sea.

Special conditions:

Note smokers are welcome to partake on the deck but not bring it inside. Thanks!

    We were a group of two families with kids aged 10-16, and we had a fantastic stay here. The beds were comfy. The deck was great. The on water boat shed was super too. The house did lose the sun late afternoon, but that was actually a blessing as we hit a hot week so that meant the rooms cooled down before bedtime. It’s as described and suited us perfectly.

    The property was great so much room to move around in, inside and out. The steep drive was a challenge however a great way to lose those extra pounds. The location was amazing as was the views and the close proximity to our family and lake, all having the boat shed was an added bonus, a microwave would be nice however we look forward to returning for another holiday. Thanks Stuart.

  • We had a lovely stay at the property

    We had a lovely stay at the property. Had all we needed and plenty of space. We were only 5 people but would have been fine for more people. Lovely views and a great location. Close to the lake and the use of the boat shed was very handy. Oh and the kayak was great as well. We look forward to staying again

  • Nicely furnished, with comfortable beds and good view

    Nicely furnished, with comfortable beds and good view. Loses sun from 4.30ish but great view of sun rises. Owner managers are helpful. Good parking. Would be a bit cramped if fully occupied. Showers not great.
