Pet Friendly Inside Welcome
Taking the family on a lake vacation? Look no further than this low-key family bach. Welcome to Otaramarae Retreat!
A warm, comfortable home away from home, Otaramarae Retreat is spread across 2-storeys. Enjoy sitting under the covered deck with views of the lake while having the BBQ sizzling away in the background and a cold drink in hand. The kids will love being able to roam around the fully fenced section and even the family pet is welcome to join the fun.
Make use of everything on-site including WiFi to keep you and the family connected, smart TV's both upstairs and down with Netflix or plenty of board games if the weather has you stuck indoors. There is a fireplace and a heat pump to keep everyone toasty warm if it's a winter stay you have planned.
Choose either the double or single kayak, mount it onto a trolley, grab a lifejacket and head down to the water!
With lots of room to park the boat and with the boat ramp less than a 1-minute drive away, you'll be ideally set up to make the most of the lake. When you get back, you can cook up your fresh catch on the BBQ or better yet, smoke it using the fish smoker!
If you're keen to set out on an adventure, take the kayak around to the Manupirua Hot pools only 10-minutes away by water, or try some white water rafting. The Okere Falls track is also close by. The acclaimed Okere Falls Store is within 5 minutes drive for all your food and drink needs. Jump in the car and head to Rotorua just 20 minutes away for some relaxation and rejuvenation at the hot springs and thermal pools.
Set out on an adventure, or simply unwind and relax with the family - Otaramarae awaits!

We had a wonderful stay! We loved the sunny deck and BBQ. We would definitely love to return! Very suitable for a young family - lots of books and games available too.
