About the property

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

For anyone wanting the perfect retreat, be that the whole family, or a romantic weekend escape, this bach has everything you need.

We have recently refurbished the bach, new bathroom, kitchen decking, plush new carpet. All new fitout, and everything you need for a relaxing and indulgent stay in our piece of paradise.

This is the perfect base for all of your events and adventures in Rotorua. Either ride or drive, it is only a short drive and you are in the Whakawerawera forest for mountainbiking and running trails. Stay at the lake and enjoy water sports, swimming, kayaking or trout fishing. Either fish off the nearby jetty or take our Canadian canoe out and try your luck. You will be 50m from the boat ramp, swimming and picnic areas and jetty. And a short walk to the start of the popular Okareka boardwalk and walkway. Or stay home and soak up the sun and relax on the deck.

The Blue Lake is about 1 km away and Lake Tarawera a five minute drive.

The unit has a garage alongside which has a gym setup and secure space for your bikes and sports toys.

The unit is next door to our own house. If we?re around, we are more than happy to share some local knowledge of the trails or various activities/attractions to maximise the fun factor while you are here.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);

Although we did have a nice time overall, excepting the noise, see above.

Although we did have a nice time overall, excepting the noise, see above. We did feel a little 'cheated' for want of a better word. It would have been lovely to go out in the canoe or one of the kayaks mentioned in the listing. We could not access a paddle let alone a canoe or kayak.

Although we may be naive the property has no lake view, which the web pictures sort of indicate.

Finally we had to buy soap for the bathroom!

We choose this place on the facilities listed and the previous reviews.

Owner's Response: HI Allan, we're really sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. We were trying to help out friends by letting them stay while were away and I'm sorry they were so noisy, we're disappointed that they weren't more respectful, they did know we had guests staying. Sorry you didn't use the canoe, the paddles were sitting with it. If you ever want to give us another chance please contact us and we can look at a special rate as we do pride ourselves on trying to get everything right.

Very comfortable home, well appointed, very good internet access. Care needs to be taken when reversing out of the rather steep driveway.

The property was clean, tidy and felt just like home. The location was superb, right next to the lake and not far from central. Looking forward to coming back!
