About this Holiday House

The Dark Horse Kiwi Lake Bach can accomodate your next get away... Bikes, boats, kayaks, fishing, running, outdoors or just relaxing on the bean bags at home on the rear covered deck with a wine in hand while watching the kids play and amuse themselves... The Bach is set on an 800sqm flat section, rear fenced for the dogs and has 2 queen bedrooms within the 70sqm family friendly holiday home. It boasts an open plan living and a comfortable layout. The rear deck has a year round covered pergola, so even in the rain and or the beating sun you can leave the doors wide open and enjoy the bbq, deck and games. All whist splashing out on the bean bases... How about some soccer, or back yard cricket for the kids... With outdoor games like connect 4, Jenga, pétanque, frisbee discs and a new trampoline, along with a variety of indoor games/toys for kids both young and old to enjoy. And how does an outdoor infinite HOT shower sound? Under the stars on a cool night, after a long day in the sun.... Or if you’re not brave enough, then an indoor one is there too. Or just a bath to dunk the little ones in. The house has a flat screen TV, Freeview (bring own SKY decoder if you wish), gas hot water and hobs. Apple TV unit is there for streaming and if WIFI is needed we have that too. The house has recently been fully insulated and with the addition of a large new AC/Heat pump for those cosy winter nights and to cool those hot summer ones!! Parking space galore for the boat, either front yard or back. NOTES : Kiwi Bach. It’s (not yet..) a 5 STAR but it’s homely, comfy and a place you can put your feet up!

Our place is within walking distance to the local shops, there is a small grocery store, cafe, pharmacy and takeaways. The closest petrol station is in Whakamaru, about 5 mins drive. Approximately 45mins - 1 hour from both Taupo and Rotorua. Mangakino is a small town located next to Lake Maretai and in the heart of the North Island of New Zealand, in the Great Lake Taupo region. Once a thriving town due to the construction of the many dams in the area and the forestry industry. It is now a small and quiet lakeside village and has become more popular with holiday makers and tourists alike. Mangakino is the perfect place to enjoy the stunning lake and forest scenery, great for watersports, golf, mountain biking and hiking or just a relaxing weekend away. Have a relaxing summer picnic lunch or dinner on the shores of Lake Maraetai while watching the thrills and spills of the wakeboarders out on the water. The lake also reaches comfortable temperatures for swimming during summer. You can also hire mountain bikes and kayaks at the lakefront. The perfect spot for hiking and mountain biking, the Waikato River Trails run both directions along from the Mangakino lakefront. Going south to the Whakamaru Dam it features a 70 metre suspension bridge across the Waikato River, 4km from the Mangakino end of the trail. Hiking in the Pureora Forest is also popular, particularly the renowned Timber Trail. You will need a car to get here. There is no public transport. Approximately 45mins - 1 hour from both Taupo and Rotorua, and 2.5 - 3 hours from Auckland.
