The property

This holiday home may comfortably accommodate 14 guests, but please be advised there are to be no parties held here. Just minutes from Lake Okareka on tranquil farmland sits The Red Barn - a modern, purpose-built home fit to host your next quiet and relaxing group getaway to this stunning Bay of Plenty holiday spot. With plenty of parking for both cars and boats, and a secure garden shed to store equipment, The Red Barn is an ideal facility for holiday makers who want a quiet and peaceful place to return to at the end of the day's adventures. Whether you’re here to enjoy the excellent hiking, biking, fishing and boating, or you’re supporting or participating in a local sporting event, The Red Barn has everything you need. There are even two kayaks and three mountain bikes available for you to use at your leisure! When it’s time to retreat indoors, a huge open-plan living-dining space invites you to sit back and relax. There’s more than enough seating for everyone to be part of the conversation, or gather round the Smart TV for a quiet movie night. Pour yourself your favourite holiday drink, and take advantage of the complimentary WIFI to post your latest holiday snaps! A well-equipped kitchen offers everything you need to self-cater your holiday, and with two fridge-freezers there is plenty of space to store all the favourites you’ve brought from home. Dine at the table big enough for everyone to share a meal together, or fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco on the shaded deck. The young, and young at heart, in your group will enjoy sunny days on the large grassy section. Stage a backyard footy or cricket match, or simply enjoy the tranquility of having this beautifully kept expanse of land all to yourself. At the end of the day’s adventures, four bedrooms offer everyone a place to lay their head. The rooms feature a combination of queen and bunk beds, and there is even a port-a-cot available for use. There are also two sofa beds in the living area, should you be looking for a little extra space or privacy in the bedrooms. Two full bathrooms, and one additional toilet provides ample conveniences for everyone. The wet floor shower in one of the bathrooms provides disability access if required. The Red Barn is situated just 400m from the beach and 3km from the boat ramp, making it an ideal spot to enjoy fishing and swimming on your holiday. The forest for hiking and biking is just 4km from your home away from home, and if you’d like to check out the multitude of activities in Rotorua, it’s just a 12km drive into town. Bring everyone together for a quiet and relaxing Rotorua getaway. The Red Barn at Lake Okareka is ready and waiting!

As this property is set on working farmland, access to the surrounding paddocks is unavailable.

Bedroom 4 is located on the mezzanine floor, overlooking the living area.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.

About the location

Surrounded by hills and native forest, Lake Okareka is one of the smaller of the Rotorua Lakes, and one less visited by tourists. Because of this, it is a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of life and refresh yourselves. Family activities close by include everything Rotorua has to offer such as the Skyline Luge, Fairy Springs and Zorb. All of our Lake Okareka holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking.
