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. Double & single kayaks (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!).

    Excellent location on the shores of the Lake with good access for a boat or jet ski. Very handy to necessary amenities.

  • A lovely place with a soul

    A lovely place with a soul. Perfect for a family. Kayaking on the lake is magical. Waitangi Springs nearby is great.

    Lovely Bach with fully fence, Kayak and lots of travel guide information which make life easier where we should go/do in the area, lovely, safe and quiet place. Warm and cozy inside the house, big fridge and you got everything you need close to shop . Love the basket of treasure (natural toys) and great selection of movies. Thank you David to share your place to us.
