“We had such a fantastic stay at the Red Barn.”
Super clean and comfortable for 3 families with kids. We had everything we needed for the week we were there. The large lawns were a bonus for the kids. Would definitely love to stay here again!- Hannah, December 2023
Perfect for our family group. Everything there that we needed.- Jayne, March 2023
“Three families, nine of us altogether, and room for more.”
Great amount of space for everyone. Idyllic setting, lovely gas fire, super well equiped kitchen (for our kitchen gurus), and great barbecue. Beds very comfy, top quality linen and towels.- Nicola, October 2022
“My family thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Red Barn and said that they would have liked to have stayed longer.”
We liked the accommodation because it catered for larger numbers of family. We chose the Red Barn because of this and also because some of the family grew up at Lake Okareka. The house was clean, comfortable, had all the necessary facilities, extra bedding if needed but most of all it was a cosy warm atmosphere. The children enjoyed the lounge area and the adults enjoyed some of the board games. We would recommend the Red Barn to others who have more than 8 people in the family and are looking for quiet scenic surroundings close to a lake. Thank you.

“The photos do not do this place justice.”
Our every need was catered for and I would highly recommend this place. I hope I get the opportunity to stay there again - it was wonderful. Thank you to the owner for accommodating us regarding a dog - which did not stay - we appreciated that, as we were "caught short" but found someone to help out in the end . Ten out of Ten. Thank you so much Linda- LINDA, July 2022
“What an amazing property!”
Perfectly clean and well equiped with everything we needed plus more. Lovely home to relax in on wet and cold winter's day. Plenty of space for our 3 families, indoor and out, easy distance to the lake, beach and walks, as well as into Rotorua. We all loved the novelty of being able to watch the deer from the house. An easy 5 stars from us and we hope to be back sometime!- Emma, July 2022
“Great holiday for our big family.”
So close to the lake, kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. The red barn was extremely clean and tidy on arrival. The grounds were immaculate, we enjoyed spending time playing in the garden during the day and sitting on the deck eating dinner at night. Thank you for providing such an awesome place for our family holiday. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!- Lauren, January 2022

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.
As this property is set on working farmland, access to the surrounding paddocks is unavailable.
Please note that there is a maximum of 10 adults allowed at this property at all times
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.
