About this Holiday House

WEEKEND RETREAT, SURPRISE ROMANTIC WEEKEND? GIRLS WEEKEND? FAMILY SUMMER HOLIDAY Lake front, beach, and own jetty. The shack is an original 1920's Kauri fishing lodge that whilst retaining its character and atmosphere has been quietly updated with small touches. Summer, sleep on the balcony with the windows folded back, kayak along the lakefront to the local store or relax on the small private beach or boatshed veranda while your children play or master the kayaks or rowboat. Winter, laze on the balcony bed, read beside the open fire, enjoy a hot pool (across the lake by boat) or swim in the soda springs (8 min drive). Sunset Cocktails or Breakfast on the boat shed 'drawbridge'. Plumbed outdoor bath for soaking in. Rowboat, stand up paddle board and 3 kayaks.(2 single and 1 double) available for use at your own risk. A living area with open fire opens out onto the balcony room with bifolding windows over the lake. The 3 bedrooms are small but well appointed with quality duvets, bedside lamps, electric blankets etc. The balcony bed is sought after for starlit winter and summer nights. The original kitchen has mostly new appliances (no dishwasher). Separate laundry, toilet and shower. Boat launching 2-3 km's away at either Gisborne Point or Hinehopu, The Shack has its own jetty for overnight mooring. There is parking for cars, boat/trailor but you will need to be able to "5 point turn". The boat shed has its own verandah 'draw bridge' for summer play or sunset drinks on our lazybeans bean bags. Some care is needed with small children due to the house being water front and like many Lake Rotoiti houses is alongside the state highway (there will be some rumbles early mornings from logging trucks passing through).The house though is fenced and gated from the road and the balcony has a 'stable' door designed to assist with keeping small children and toddlers in Our Rotoiti based bach managers will greet and farewell you. $80 cleaning fee per stay - tidy, do dishes, remove rubbish & close up boatshed but leave the vacuuming and wiping to our cleaner! You will need to take all your rubbish and recycling with you. There is kerbside rubbish collection Monday mornings ( ok if you leave Sundays) but no recycling. What you bring in you need to take out with you - like boating or tramping. We refill our chilly bins - others bring their recycling bins from home. The shack is an absolutely waterfront iconic family Bach.

Absolutely loved staying at The Shack! Plenty of room for friends & family, beautiful views, peacefully surrounded by lake Rotoiti. We have booked again in June & will make it a regular holiday stay ☺️
