The Love Shack - The Little Gem In A Slice of Paradise!
WOW, the Love Shack truly lives up to its name and exceeded all our expectations! This is by far one of THE BEST places we've ever stayed. The amenities provided are above and beyond, the location is excellent and the views are absolutely amazing. Private lake access and tranquil nature. The perfect place to unwind for our anniversary. Florence is simply the perfect host, the communication was literally so so fast and so so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The Love Shack is everything and more, a little gem in a slice of paradise! Wish we could have stayed longer; definitely next time!

Just fab
Lovely lakeside retreat. Peaceful and picturesque location with modern amenities, private and surrounded by bush. This suited us perfectly as a couple. We visited the local Okere Falls Store every day for great coffee and some of the best food we've tasted. All in all a lovely time and will be back for more.

Perfect getaway spot! 3 days felt like 2 weeks (in the best way possible!) Very relaxing and cosy, gorgeous view, and close to lots of great spots in the Bay of Plenty. What more could you need? Absolutely loved it.
