With an abundance of outdoor living options and two-bedrooms n the main house plus a sleepout with a third bedroom, this classic Kiwi holiday home with modern touches is just as perfect for a romantic couples retreat as it is a family holiday. Welcome to Birdsong!

Boasting ample off-street parking, a great location just a five-minute drive from Okere Falls, and enjoying spectacular views of the inlet and Lake Rotoiti, Birdsong also offers cosy open-plan living with all the comforts of home. This really is an ideal place to call home on your next fun-filled family getaway.

Large picture windows let natural light pour into this home, while French doors create seamless indoor-outdoor flow on to your huge wrap-around deck. Two outdoor table settings invite you to dine together on all the Kiwi favourites hot off the BBQ, and the outdoor couch is an ideal place to relax with a freshly made espresso style coffee.

Make the most of the summer sunshine as you enjoy sipping your favourite cold drink in the loungers, with the kids playing on the lawn. And then later as the sun goes down, gather around the firepit and toast marshmallows as you make a plan for tomorrow’s adventures!

If the weather calls for a day indoors, light the wood burning fireplace and create some cosy winter ambience. Use the complimentary WIFI to login to your Netflix account on the Smart TV and settle in to watch a movie. A gorgeous farm-style kitchen is well-equipped for preparing something delicious to snack on!

Two bedrooms inside the main house here at Birdsong comfortably sleep up to four guests. The master features a queen size bed and enjoys direct access to the deck. Just a few steps from the main house sits a fantastic sleepout complete with its own kitchenette and bathroom as well as separate bedroom sleeping an additional two guests. Talk about an ideal set up for two families to come together on a Lake Rotoiti getaway!

If you can drag yourself away from the great Kiwi summer living here at Birdsong, there’s plenty to enjoy in the area. If you fancy a dip in the lake, it’s just a short walk to the reserve where the kids can safely enjoy some fun in the water.

Why not head to Okere Falls for a stroll followed by a coffee and a bite to eat at the famous Okere Falls Store. You can get there in 20 minutes on foot, 10 minutes by bike, and just five minutes in the car! If you have the mountain bikes, or fancy experiencing what it's like to walk in the treetops, why not travel 25 minutes into Rotorua and visit the Redwoods.

Outdoor living at its finest awaits for you, here at Birdsong!

Not a big house for a family.

Thank you for your review, Shereen! We're sorry to hear you didn't find the spaces at Birdsong big enough for your family, unlike our previous family bookings but we understand not all properties are suitable for all groups. We hope you still had a lovely time!

My husband, dog and I enjoyed a cosy winter escape at Birdsong. Nestled in the bush with lake views this was an idyllic getaway. We enjoy trail running and mountain biking which there is plenty close by. The house is a quintessential kiwi bach which we loved. Appreciated the stylish touches. Given we had some of the coldest days so far, the bach heated up really quickly with the heat pump and oil heaters. We even got the old fire place fired up. We are looking forward to booking a summer break here too with some friends so we can enjoy the roaming outside areas.

My Family arrived from Australia and had not seen them for 18mths . Wanted something close to home to fit everyone in. The house was great- clean and tidy and we enjoyed the fire pit at night plus the huge coved in deck . Great views of lake.

This property was perfect for our family. The heat pump is super efficient, VERY well equipped kitchen and board game cupboard. The deck is fantastic and bbq is great. Definitely one we’ll come back to!
