Our holiday home is at Okawa Bay, on the edge of Lake Rotoiti, close to Rotorua. If you paste 334 SH 33, Mourea, Rotorua 3074‎ into google maps at it will take you there- you can then get directions from anywhere.

The space

It has simply the most incredible view over a sheltered bay of the lake and surrounding hills. It is on two levels with upstairs comprising very large open plan living/dining/kitchen area with high quality furniture and a new granite kitchen. Phone fax and fast satellite Internet for your notebook computer. On this level also is the master bedroom with king size bed, dressing room and TV. The fully tiled en suite bathroom has a walk in shower with a great lake view. Lounge has gas fire, blue ray home theatre setup, "Sky" satellite TV plus books and games, and a heating/air conditioning unit. The open plan Kitchen has stove, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer, as well as all usual minor appliances, and has a glass breakfast conservatory adjoining. Dining table seats eight. Both Living area and upstairs bedroom have floor to ceiling, wall to wall glass so that you can watch the sun rise over the lake and hills from your bed, and both open onto a large patio deck with outdoor furniture and BBQ. Also on this level is a second living room/ fifth bedroom complex with lounge suite, study and en suite bathroom which sleeps two in a queen size folding bed settee. An additional 36 inch TV and Sky TV with 30 channels. Downstairs there are three further bedrooms and the main bathroom (includes a double indoor/outdoor jacuzzi bath with a great lake view plus a shower, handbasin and toilet) Bathroom plus main large downstairs bedroom (super king size double or two single beds) look out over lake. One other bedroom has a double bed, and the fourth tiny bedroom has a pair of bunks.. There is a full length terrace here with furniture, and a pair of kayaks hang here. The house has a huge parking area and a big garage/workshop with table tennis, and it is set in a quarter acre fully landscaped garden of trees and lawns to the lake edge, where there is a jetty, private sandy beach and big fire pit/BBQ area.

On the beach are a 12 foot sailing catamaran and a 13 foot dinghy with oars and outboard motor for your use. There are also two kayaks. Life jackets and trout fishing gear are included- Lake Rotoiti is said to hold the biggest trophy trout in NZ (although my best so far was tiny at only 8lbs!) The house is a few minutes walk along the lake edge from an upmarket hotel restaurant, a general store/take away food bar. A ten minute walk brings you to the best fly fishing spot in NZ on Lake Rotorua. Bustling Rotorua city with it's cafes and many tourist attractions is 16 minutes by car, and is the premier destination in New Zealand for visitors- lakes, forests, volcano cones, geysers, hot mineral pools, Jet boating, bush walks and native Maori history- there is more to do and see than you can cope with! Ten minutes from our house you can raft over the highest raftable waterfall in the southern hemisphere (or just take a beautiful rain forest walk to watch!) If you yearn for the sea, you can head for beautiful beaches at the coast half an hour away, or one hour away is NZ's biggest lake, Taupo, with it's view of the snow capped mountains in the background. And yes, the house can be used as a base for a day's skiing on the mountain 2 hours away in Winter (July to November).

Getting around

We are ten minutes by taxi to Rotorua airport which is a one hour flight from Auckland airport, and also has flights to all other NZ destinations plus Sydney.
