About this Holiday House

The Oar & Paddle; our very special piece of paradise on the left bank of Lake Karapiro, Cambridge NZ. Guest accommodation is self-contained; guests have a private entrance and can come and go as they please. All accommodation is private and there is no sharing of facilities with other guests. The Paddle House has two suites with stunning views of the lake below, are very generous in size, new and very well appointed. Both have their own ensuites and patios. They are separated by a kitchen / laundry and adjacent to the living / dining area. There is no sharing with other guests. We now have our brand new stand alone Chalet called 'The Oarhouse Chalet’ with a much envied aspect over looking the lake. It has two suites each with either one Californian bed plus one single or three single beds for up to 6 guests. Each suite has an en suite. There is a large lounge / dinning with schist fire place, full kitchen, separate laundry, car port and extensive decking over looking the lake. We feel The Oarhouse would not be out of place amongst NZ’s finest.

Anne L
Perfect base for a Waikato retreat with friends. A beautifully appointed property in a peaceful farm setting that accommodated our group of 3 couples perfectly. We all had our own bedroom and ensuite with shared attached communal kitchen and lounge exclusively for our group. Lovely river walk in front of the property, great base for Hobbiton, Sacred Mountain, Waitomo, Cambridge and Hamilton. David and Sue are excellent hosts, they are there if needed but privacy is discreetly maintained. Thank you.

The attention to detail in this home was exquisite - heated flooring, huge gasfire, beautifully balanced fittings and faciilities, luxuriously comfortable furnishings - especially the huge beds - and automated lighting. Then there's the spacious grounds and the "to die for" view. We felt welcomed by David and will definitely stay at this lovely home again.

This is a treasure, and I want to keep it a secret. We were in Matamata on horse business with our dear friends John and Linda. Ordinarily we would just drive back home (a long way) so we decided to find a place to stay that would accept dogs (theirs and ours). What a fabulous location, feels like you are in Maine (on lake), and the house and grounds are sophisticated. A great host too. The house has everything and is very lovely. The bonus was we were allowed to take our well behaved dogs. A rare find and we will be back. There is more horse business...
Response from Owner
Thank you Anne and John for the very nice comments. We are always delighted when guests have had a pleasurable stay. We have a very strict policy regarding pets as you are aware. You got quite a drilling on what we expect. It s obvious that they are your love and you only go where they are welcome. They were just as you said and left without a trace as did you and your friends John and Linda. We would love to have you stay again. Kind regards David & Sue.
