Perfect location – Lake edge just a few metres from the front of the property, across a quiet, no-exit lane, within a short stroll to boat ramp, children’s playground and lovely bush walk. Ideal for swimming, kayaking, boating, trout fishing, bikers and hikers, adults and children alike. 9-hole golf course within walking distance. Hot springs and a good cafe/store/petrol station within 10 minutes’ drive. Large flat lawn front and back with decks both sides to take advantage of sun and views. In the evening relax on the front deck and take in wonderful sunsets over Lake Rotoiti. Easy care well-equipped 60's Lockwood cottage. Single sit-on-top kayak (most of the year), comfortable beds, cosy log burner, books and games. Parents of small children be aware there is an unfenced (very small) stream at the rear of the property. The bathroom is 'bach' level, but perfectly adequate (new shower!).

If you have any questions prior to making a booking enquiry, please phone David on 0274 191 166.

NB: the kayak is not available between 10th and 31st January.

  • Lovely lake front location with a pleasant outlook from the porch

    Lovely lake front location with a pleasant outlook from the porch. Bach interior is a wee bit dark so would perform best in summer when you can be outside a lot, although beware the westerly! Interior furnishings (couches and bed etc) could also do with an upgrade to be a bit more comfy but generally fairly well appointed property.

  • Property was dirty, cobwebs everywhere, floor had sand and dust everywhere

    Property was dirty, cobwebs everywhere, floor had sand and dust everywhere. Bed was very hard but it is a good place to stay for a short time.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Sorry to hear you were disappointed. We have a cleaner coming through next weekend so I'll get her to do a good spring clean. I'm surprised about the comment on the bed, I find it very comfy and yours is our first complaint, after dozens of guests.

  • The location was fabulous

    The location was fabulous. Just across from the lake with friendly, relaxed neighbours. There is plenty to do in the area and the bach itself was fully equipped and had a lovely feel about it.

    David was very quick to respond to th booking request, and helpful. We really enjoyed our time at the cottage, right on the lakefront of Rotoiti. Excellent guide provided for the area. We'd definitely come back. Thank you!
