Located within Onepoto Village - 4 minutes walk to Lake Waikaremoana - the jewel of the Urewera National Park. This is a noteable area for fishing, hunting and tramping. Onepoto is an entry point to the Great Walk and is close to a boat ramp and swimming beach.

Lou's Bach was the home of one of NZ's most decorated, respected and colourful policeman - the decor is steeped with memorabilia of his time. Is a comfortable old style NZ bach with modern amenities. A log fire-place provides easy heating all year while a conservatory catches all day sun and affords great views over the eastern Urewera ranges. Colourful garden plantings surrounded by native bush attracts tuis, bellbirds and pigeons all year round.

This is a remote location and as such water is by tank - usually plentiful but we do request consideration with its use particularly in the event of a dry summer period. The remoteness, also requires that guests leave the place tidy on departure please ...a clean kitchen, quick vacuum and (really important) removal of all rubbish is all that is required and this obligation is factored into a below-market pricing.

Do note that conservation values dictate a ban on cats and dogs within the Urewera National Park.

We love Lou's place and stay there whenever we go to Lake Waikaremoana. It's a simple bach full of history. It makes you feel like you are staying in a museum, where so many of the trails in the area are linked directly to Lou. It's a great location. You can walk to so many trails in and around the lake from there. You can also walk to the lake itself in just a few minutes. The wood fire keeps the house warm. The house has everything you need, just bring some food, water and sheets.

We had a wonderful, quiet time in this warm and homely place. Everything was clean and tidy and we would have loved to stay longer. The beds, which are always a critical point when you suffer frequent back pain, where very good and we all slept well. The neighborhood is very quiet and there is an amazing supply of firewood and an excellent woodfire. Another bonus is the proximity of boat ramps and walking tracks in various lengths. Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely place, we will be back again.

This is a truly wild place with exceptional conservation values. The back fits in beautifully: it is simply constructed, embraced by leafy gardens and yet well equipped to ensure you will enjoy the isolation of this montane environment
