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.

The Oar and Paddle is a great place to stay. So quiet and peaceful and the views are amazing. We stayed in Suite 1 and could quite happily sat in bed all day looking at the view! The accommodation is top notch and everything is finished to a high standard. David and Sue were lovely hosts and I'm sure we'll be back again. Would happily recommend to anyone.

A slice of paradise with the most amazing views of Lake Karapiro from the bedroom and lounge. The accommodation is beautiful with very tasteful furnishings. We loved the big bifold doors which open out to the gorgeous grounds and view beyond. Lovely big comfortable bed and quality bedlinen. Great kitchen facilities - everything just magic. David was a wonderful host and we would love to stay again. Thank you so much.
