About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Yes, its all here just waiting for you to come and soak up the ambience and go home relaxed. Catch a trout from the front lawn or just sit somewhere on the spacious deck with a refreshing drink and watch the lake action unfold.

A roomy newly renovated home with modern appliances gives an atmosphere to unwind in. Open plan living spaces with separate cosy nooks gives a real sense of serenity. For those holiday makers just wanting to relax you have found your haven, for little ones there is a sandy beach to build sandcastles, bury treasure and learn to gain water confidence in the shallow lake bed. For those wanting more adventure the lake caters for all sorts of action packed water sport. For those looking for quieter ways to enjoy the surrounding then grab the paddles, find the hidden bays or be captivated by the numerous water fowl that call Lake Okareka home. For those looking to find the unusual then make sure you read the owners manual to get the location of that "something different" accessed only by boat.

Take a stroll in the evenings to search for glow worms along the nearby lakeside track.

Lake Okareka is the jewel in amongst a world renown lake playground of three other lakes i.e. Blue Lake, Green Lake and Lake Tarawera and is on route to other major tourist attractions.

The lake is fortunate to have an open fishing season and has two fishing competitions a year.

World class mountain bike tracks are approx. 12 minutes riding from here.

Numerous walking tracks, providing stunning scenery such as the Lake Okareka boarded walk way (with huts designed for bird watching), the bush walks up to the Scenic Reserves from Lake Okareka and the world renown Blue Lake circut walk, cater for all levels of fitness.

Travel less than 2 kilometers to where a very popular horse treking facility takes you over the most scenic of country.

If you just want to be still and listen to the quietness or if you have a love of the outdoors then its all here.

Fantastic location and a great property to stay at with all the toys & equipment available to play with. However if you do not completely put everything away, you will be scolded by the owner, even if you pay the $90.00 cleaning fee. We were accused of leaving the property "Yuk" evening after paying the cleaning fee, & the examples given where leaving a few dishes on the bench & not putting away 2 deck chairs.

Location of property is perfection, level section flows from outdoor deck onto lawn and then the lake edge. Kayaks and lifejackets available for use. Property itself has a fantastic layout with great kitchen and easy living areas, very nicely appointed. Loved the great Wi-Fi!

Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Loved it. Not many places you can go to and its pouring with rain and you can still say the place is beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay here, was great for the kids and we loved the spa too. We are definitely looking to come back in summer.
