Come on a journey to visit our patch of paradise! The bach is 9.5 km from the SH32 turnoff, signposted Whareroa Village. Hear the birdsong early morning and enjoy the view of pristine lake and sky with the lights of Taupo and Turangi at night. The house is on an unfenced gentle-sloping section. Relax in the well heated house or explore the area. Walk five minutes down to the beach for swimming, launching your boat at the ramp, exploring the nature reserve, or fly-fishing at the mouth of the Whareroa Stream. Fishing licence and boat ramp fees may be paid to Steve Sanderson at 21 Hinekapi Terrace.

The Whakapapa Skifield is 40 minutes drive south from Whareroa. There's a general store 19.8 km south at Omori with the Tokaanu Thermal Baths, hotel and Oasis Cafe 9 km further on. For trampers and bush-walkers, explore at Pukawa or Omori, or drive 15 minutes north up the Western Bay Road (SH32) to the Waihaha Track, or south through Tokaanu and up the hill on SH47 to Lake Rotopounamu. The Tongariro National Trout Centre is a short distance south from Turangi on SH1.

The bach has open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, a double room with queen-size bed and a second bedroom with two single beds, all with a view of the lake. There's a double sofa-bed in the lounge and a combined laundry, shower and toilet.

The house has a stove, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, radio, TV with Freeview, DVD, and a BBQ on the deck.

  • The view from the property is stunning

    The view from the property is stunning. Extremely peaceful and restful place to a stay. Probably the best equipped and organised property we have stayed in.

    The location is for the people who do not desire driving out to events every day. Its a beautiful quiet location in a small bunch of batches. The batch has a lovely 180 degree view of the lake. The house has everything you need and is very clean and comfortable. As for the lake you have all you need: Small walks, boat ramp, swimming area, grass area (with toilets), stream outlet for fly fishing and much more.

  • Great place to relax and unwind! A few minutes easy stroll down...

    Great place to relax and unwind! A few minutes easy stroll down to the stunning lake and handy enough to Turangi for a cafe lunch! We were impressed with the thought that had gone into providing little extras that are easily forgotten by holidayers such as sunblock, insect repellent and torches. Having the option of the sleepout with it's own toilet and shower makes it ideal for 2 families/groups to use. Plenty of hot water, a washing machine and a big deck area for drying clothes! Fabulous!
