Chalet Near The Lake - Lake Okareka Sleeps 14

Lakefront Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
* ** For Covid cancellation due to lockdown and unable to travel full refund will be given.
NOTE: This is a basic rustic holiday home - NOT 5 STAR - If you are used to 5 star accommodation please do not book it

Note: as of Nov 2021 the yard is fenced off for your safety as builders are in the process of building an exciting little rustic cabin, (a lifelong dream becoming a reality) We hope this doesn't inconvenience you. Watch this space for when this might be available for a very special get away!!

Just a quick 2 minute walk to the lake! This large 'chalet' like home is sited on a private, peaceful section with huge trees and a great lawn area for the kids to play. Not lakefront.

Perfect as a central meeting point for catching up with family/friends from around the North Island, or any larger group set-up, as it sleeps 12+

This accommodation provides the basics, in a setting of 'rustic charm'. It WOULD NOT BE SUITABLE for those groups requiring a 4-5 star hotel environment!
It is however, perfect for groups to enjoy each others company and to get away from the 'rat-race' for a peaceful break.

World class locations for Boating, Kayaking , Mountain-biking, Water-skiing, etc are literally just minutes away! if its 'time out' you're after, relax on the deck, or check out the many cafe/dining options available in nearby Rotorua.

In keeping with the peaceful setting, we ask that noise is kept to an absolute minimum after 10pm. We have, on occasion, been forced to use bond money for gifts to appease disgruntled neighbours!

Please provide ALL OWN LINEN, including sheets, towels and tea-towels. Duvets/Pillows/Blankets are provided.

Please leave house tidy, beds straight and furniture left where it was originally
There are rubbish and recycling bins you can use if you are there on Sunday to put at the top of the drive.

Cancellations: Deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE, at the owners sole discretion. (apart from covid restrictions as at the beginning of this description)

Pets allowed on discussion with owner
If you use the BBQ, please CLEAN it.

The house is on 3 levels with access between levels spiral stairs. Access to living area from driveway also via exterior deck stairs. This set-up may make the house unsuitable for some people.

Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and a hairdryer. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.
