Overview

Photos and Description of this Okere Falls holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

One of the best lake views you'll find from an expansive, 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 tuis 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 very safe, protected from the elements and so convenient - better than a jetty! There's a one-off $50 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. 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. Pets should be restrained if they could be a threat to the native birds. Thanks!

Extras: Cleaning (Optional, NZ$60.00 per stay); Linen (included);

This property is on a elevated private, sheltered and sunny site with drive on access.

  • 4 of 5

This property is on a elevated private, sheltered and sunny site with drive on access. The house can cater for all different numbers with 2 bathrooms and toilets. The views from upstairs living, kitchen and the 2 main bedrooms is fantastic looking out to the lake. With a boat you have access to a boat shed which saves so much time from using the public launching ramp. Its a easy short walk to the boat shed and lake from the house. This is our second visit and wont be out last.

Lovely traditional bach full of family memories, with loads of books and games to make use of. We enjoyed the stunning views from the balcony over the lake, the really well equipped kitchen, and the peacefulness of the location. Highly recommended.

Comfortable and easy accom.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable and easy accom. Quiet location, elevated for an enhanced view, plenty of grass for a run around. Well set up for a hassle free stay. Plenty of utensils, fridge and freeze space. Nice living and outdoor area. As noted by others- I suppose the nature of the decking hand rail would mean close attention would need to be given to little children- to prevent a possible fall. Stuart good to deal with, obliging and quick to respond. Overall very happy and thanks for a wonderful stay.
