Description

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 online.

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.

  • Absolutely brilliant

    Absolutely brilliant. This is our second stay at Bob’s Bach and we have just booked our third! My husband, myself and our two children love it here. The fully fenced deck, although narrow, allows for plently of space for our littlies to race up and down and means we don’t have to worry about their safety (2yrs & 5yrs). The queen bed could do with replacing for comfort sake but everything else is spot on. The location and view is absolutely stunning. We will be back!

    Great that you enjoyed your stay a second time! We will look at upgrading the queen bed before you come back!,

    The views are truly amazing, with a lush narrow path leading down to the lake which is crystal clear and beautiful for swimming and kayaking. The house has everything you need, including kayaks:)
