One of the best lake views you'll find from a wide, sheltered, sunny deck, plus a large (1570sqm) section to play on, park cars, pitch tents, whatever! A classic 1940s bach with 1970s additions set in native bush with native birds to wake up to and sunsets to die for.

One minute walk to the lake edge, two minutes to the lockable on-water boatshed where you can keep your (up to 5.5m) powerboat and water toys safe, protected from the elements and so convenient - better than a jetty! There's a one-off $60 charge for use of the boatshed during your stay.

Been to Rotoiti lately? Recent years have seen a big investment in upgrading the water quality and it is now beautifully clear year-round and fantastic for swimming.

Whether it is trout fishing, water skiing, visiting the fabulous boat-access-only Manupirua hot pools, taking nearby bush walks, popping down to the trendy Okere Falls Store and cafe/beer garden, or taking in the many attractions of Rotorua (20 minutes away) this is a great base. Comfortably furnished and well equipped, with a congenial old lounge, open fire, wetback stove, and good appliances. Newly carpeted 2018 and heat pump fitted 2017. A real bonus is the fantastic spring water: pure, perfect, cool drinking water straight from the tap!

With a steep hill behind to the southwest, you are out of the prevailing wind, making this a year round option for a peaceful and romantic break or a refreshing (salt-free!) change from the usual family holiday by the sea.

Special conditions:

Note smokers are welcome to partake on the deck but not bring it inside. Thanks!

    Delightful lake views from this elevated bach surrounded by bush and birds make this ideal for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway, yet it's just a few minutes' easy walk (or kayak trundle) to the water. Well equipped with an old style bach vibe and deck for outdoor eating, made for a wonderful relaxed holiday place for adult family of six.
