  • Large backyard and native bush surrounds

This delightful character bach is 50m across the road to beautiful clean Lake Rotoma. Facing north on an elevated site it has captivating views of the Lake and surrounding hills. A large sunny deck on the north side offers wonderful BBQ entertaining under the shade sail during those hot summer days and the large driveway provides plenty of room for parking.

The bach is fully furnished and located 1km from the nearest boat ramp and offers all year round trout fishing. Lovely safe swimming and a ski lane can be accessed on the sandy beach with shade trees and tables available for your comfort.

This iconic Kiwi bach has many idiosyncrasies but has most of the comforts of a modern home, dishwasher, 2 fridge/freezers, microwave, stove, BBQ, washing machine and drier. The TV is for DVD use only and there is a small stereo plus a large selection of books. A kent logfire is available if the weather turns nasty.

The local store apporox 2.5KM down the road sells petrol and general items. There is also an alcohol store and a cafe/resturant attached. Lake Rotoma also has hot pools/river to enjoy after a long day spent on the lake. Kawerau is around 15 minutes drive and Rotorua and Whakatane are 40 minutes drive.

A new kitchen has replaced the one in the pictures and provides much more space and a dishwasher. Unfortunately the weather was no summers day when we took the photos, however, we will update them as soon as we get some new ones and we can assure you that on a beautiful day the setting is idyllic.

You'll find cellphone reception on the deck...if you want it. Enjoy! Pricing is for the first 4 people,

otherwise it is $10 extra pp, up to 8 people.

  • The location was AMAZING

    The location was AMAZING. The house on the other hand was not. We walked into the house at 8.30pm on a Friday evening. The house smelled damp and we had two family members with allergies who got very sick due to this. There were cob webs everywhere, dirty floors and because the house was damp, the beds and sheets and blankets felt damp. The pillows were COVERED in yellow and brown stains. The next day the toilet wouldn't flush. We were supposed to stay 2 nights. We couldn't stay another night.

    Owner/manager responds:

    This is the 1st bad comment we have had in a very long time. This person walked into a freshly vacuumed house, the floors were spotless, yes there is a musty smell but it's an old Bach, a few cobwebs don't make a house dirty. You paid for 1 of the cheapest baches in Rotoma, where you expecting the Taj Mahal? You pay for what you get mam. You left the Bach without vacuuming & then had the cheek to leave bad comments?
