  • Good place to stay

    Good place to stay. Misunderstanding with owner which was a shame. They got confused with the price and number of people they'd booked us in for and were quite rude afterwards even when I reminded them of the details and sent the original email back to them. Just make sure you keep all correspondence regarding your stay to avoid any issues. Nice spot to stay though.

  • This holiday bach is very cool

    This holiday bach is very cool. Everything we needed and more was there. It is clean tidy comfortable homely relaxing and well equipped. The views across the lake are incredible and having our own little beach was very special. Great to be able to be part of the great NZ outdoors and to be close to all local amenities at the same time. We swam we kayaked we relaxed and read books and reflected on life and did the Rotorua tourist thing too. A great few days. Thank you to the owners for sharing their piece of paradise. Oh and the neighbors are very friendly as well. We will be back.
