About this Holiday House

Fabulous Rotoiti lakefront home (not just a Bach!), perfect for relaxing, all water sports or exploring the Bay. Spacious, comfortable, well equipped home means you can stay home and relax. Spacious grounds with your own jetty means fun straight from you lawn. The lake offers stunning bays, beaches and hot-pools for idyllic picnics, swimming, fishing and more. The surrounding area offers many beautiful bush walks, glow worms, 9 hole golf course, and close access to lake Okatiana, Lake Rotoheu and Lake Rotoma. Zip over to Okere falls cafe, 10-15 mins by boat (they have delicious coffee and blueberry pancakes and much more), then have a hot soak at the wonderful Manupirua Hot Pools on your way back. World class MTB parks and all tourist attractions only 19 mins away in amazing Rotorua. If you feel like the journey to the sea, Mt Maunganui, Papamoa and Makatu beaches are less than an hours drive. If all this sounds too much you're in the perfect place to just relax at home on the spacious decks and enjoy the stunning views and the native bird life. We were on Bookabach for the last 3 years and loved using that site - but they sold to HomeAway who charged our guests huge fees. In moving we cant take our reviews with us so here's a few from the Bookabach site.... A fabulous setting and the house was ideal for our large family group. Well appointed, spacious and very well kept and clean. maryon309 100%|7x Mar 2018 You wouldn't a much better lakefront property on Rotoiti! - MarkA521 100%|6x Mar 2018 The property and its location are gems of Kiwi lifestyle.

The house is the perfect bach, comfortable, clean and room for everyone. pruean339 100%|2x Jan 2018 House keeping notes It is also important to note that this home is on a septic tank which means NO long showers or the system over flows. We have put down 2 bathrooms as there are 2 toilets and vanities, but please note there is only one shower. We have a double kayak at the house, however you must wear life jackets to use it. If you do not have one please let us know and we can see if we have one that will fit you. We have worked hard to make this a lovely home and we ask you to please look after it for us, and all future guests. Little things like shoes off inside the house and wiping down the shower after each use help a lot. Also if you accidentally forget your sheets please let us know asap. You can hire them from us and it will be much cheaper than having to pay for duvet and mattress cleaning. We look forward to meeting you soon. Special conditions: - Pets allowed with prior approval - No Smoking inside, outside only, please take your butts with you. - Price shown is for 6 people, extra people up to 12 by agreement. - This is NOT a party house for young groups. - Life Jackets must be worn if you wish to use the kayaks.

Our nightly rate is for 6 people. Extra people are an additional $35 to a maximum of ten people.

We charge a cleaning fee of $145 which covers 3 hours of both Rob and Hilary's time. This allows us to re do the basics and make sure the house is lovely for the next guests. If we need to take longer then we reserve the right to charge for our time.

Extra things we have encountered;

Stains on linen, sheets, pillowcases, under blankets, these need to be laundered and the fee on charged.

If plates and glasses come out of the dishwasher with stubborn dirt on them n get put away we have to re wash everything and this takes longer

Small children with sticky fingers leaving marks on all lower windows, TV, furniture etc They also seem to be good at breaking food up into small crumbs n hiding them in the shaggy rugs! Lol.

We hope you are happy to work in with us and try and leave the house as you found it. Many thank, Hilary and Rob
