With a unique and spacious sheltered barbecue area surrounded by grapevines and wired for sound, it's a fantastic social space by day or by night with its relaxing coloured lighting. The back garden offers plenty of space to play and heaps of fruit if the season is right. There's space to park the boat out front and if you have been out fishing then there's a dedicated fish cleaning trough behind the garage. This bach is located on the edge of the township with farmland behind and secluded from its neighbours. It's convenient to all Otematata has to offer; park, tennis/basketball court, skate park, convenience store, pub/restaurants, golf course etc. The Waitaki Valley is the home of the hydro lakes and they are set up for recreational use with boat launching ramps close to Otematata to access Lakes Aviemore and Benmore.

On a clear day you can see Mt Cook from the viewpoint on the hill by Benmore Dam. With the newly built Alps to Ocean cycle way passing through Otematata, you're within a stones throw of one of New Zealand's most picturesque bike routes. Ride on the road over the pass to take in the stunning new Sailor's cutting to Otematata section or ride out to Lake Benmore and do it both ways for an amazing 44km out-and-back adventure!

Indoors area as per photos so as expected for an older house. BBQ area in need of a tidy up. Fish gutting area overgrown with ivy. Strong winds cut off signal to tv so unable to use for last couple of days of our stay. Quite expensive in comparison to other newer properties in area.
Quaint old time crib. Had everything you needed.

We really enjoyed staying at this bach. It was very clean, nicely redecorated, and cosy and warm for a mid winter stay. The fenced section was really handy for pets/children, and the outdoor area would be lovely in the summer time. Would love to come back again.
