About Manaia Blaikie
We are a young family. I have three children, Maximus 16, Manaia 14 and Alyssa 12. They’re the typical rural kiwi kids, each enjoying different activities from motorbike riding, fishing, hunting, rugby, horse riding to netball, skiing and snowboarding. As your hosts we want you to enjoy a relaxed living space that will enable you to unwind, free your mind but at the same time also provide gateway access to surrounding treasures - having lived here all our lives, we’re experienced and have local knowledge of things to do, such as; trout fishing, hunting, river rafting, Tongariro crossing, snowboarding, Lake Taupo water adventures, geothermal pools, bike riding, local walking tracks and more! We like to think we are easy going, hardworking and always welcoming. We hope our endeavors to share with you our little unique hidden spot is successful.

Just what we needed
Our stay in Tokaanu was just what we needed; a place to relax, enjoy the view of the Lake, and get a good night's sleep.
We prepared our dinner in the kitchen which had everything we needed, including an oven which many Bachs don't have. The second night we walked across the street to have a delicious dinner at Lakehouse Restaurant with a view of the Lake from our table. I would recommend reservations.
charmant bach avec magnifiques vues sur le lac
Manaia est très accueillante. Tout est prêt pour un séjour confortable avec plein de charmantes attentions à notre arrivée. On a beaucoup apprécié le poële à bois. Beaucoup de belles randonnées proches de la maison. Merci beaucoup.
A classic kiwi bach with everything you need for a perfect stay e.g. to explore the tongariro np. Awesome place for a mystic sunrise at lake Taupo.
