The name says it all - welcome to The Lake's Edge!

Step into a picture-perfect paradise at this luxury Lake Rotoiti retreat, with WiFi, positioned as close as you can get to the lake, and boasting phenomenal panoramic views over the water and scenic rural New Zealand.

Whether it's a long weekend away somewhere sunny and private or a classic family holiday by the lake with a touch of decadence, this could be just what you are looking for to lock in some relaxation away from the hustle and bustle. Imagine waking up and enjoying your morning coffee in the fresh air down by the water, with native birdsong filling the area.

The beautifully designed and stylish interior has been thoughtfully curated to offer a restful holiday atmosphere that blends into its surroundings. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors across the north-west-facing side of the home allows for incredible indoor/outdoor flow that is nothing if not impressive.

Summer or winter, The Lake's Edge is furnished with the holiday must-haves to ensure laid-back holiday living from the minute you arrive. Out on the sundeck, tuck into alfresco meals altogether around the large polished concrete outdoor dining table.

The Lake's Edge has its own private jetty and plenty of water activity essentials such as kayaks, a ski-biscuit, a wake-board, and even life jackets in an assortment of sizes. Spend your days out on the lake, and when you get home, you can fire up the BBQ or smoker to cook the fresh catch.

In those colder months during winter, get cosy in the comfortable lounge area with a wood-burning fire on the go, snuggled up with a book from the selection available or throw on the SKY TV or DVD.

The Lake's Edge is just a short distance from Okere Falls and it's popular general store, where you can get all sorts of delicious treats, as well as that all important Flat White!

Lake Rotoiti itself is near plenty of adventurous activities, and there is lots to go out and see. Spend your days relaxing at home, or head out to explore the numerous walking trails, mountain biking tracks, and even day trips to White Island and Whakatane. You'll also be located just a 30-minute drive to Rotorua central!

You won't want to be anywhere else when each day ends - The Lake's Edge waits with open arms!

Upon arriving at the property when dark and wanting to light the fire straight away to warm up house, we noticed there was no kindling, 4 logs, little paper, with only 6 matches for our entire stay! After spending 2 1/2 hours on phone to customer service because we could not find an instruction manual & to obtain kindling/wood, to then have someone come out to tell us there was a shed which housed the wood! Also could not turn on outside sensor lights/stove lights as there were no instructions! Listing stated 'with a touch if decadence' unfortunately the couch opposite the fire had heavy stains that my daughter did not want to sit on. In master bedroom the door cabinet draw fell off and full of personal belongings. One of the bathroom basins in the master bedroom was blocked. The second bathroom shower was blocked with water spilling out onto floor. The dryer door handle was broken with sharp edges. A kitchen cupboard that stores the glasses fell off when it was opened as the screws were very loose. Obviously there has been no maintenance done on this property for sometime. In the kitchen, we were left only 3 tea bags, pepper & salt 95% empty with a few opened flour bags! This entire experience was very disappointing considering we had friends from overseas with us and wanting to show them NZ hospitality.

This property is amazing and perfect for our winter getaway with it's large fireplace and two living areas in the lounge. It's big bath, panel heaters and comfortable beds with electric blankets meant everyone was very snug. Located on Lake Rotoiti, just outside of the main bustle of Rotorua and 5 mins from the infamous and excellent Okere Falls local store that does excellent coffee, burgers and Taco nights and great local beer in their beer garden, it was the perfect spot. The 25 min drive to and from Rotorua is no hassle, in fact lovely around the lake. Just 5 mins to the gorgeous Okere Falls track, which we went back to at night with the kids to see the glow-worms and 15 mins from Hamurana Springs which was stunning. The house was spotless and beautifully furnished. I could not be happier with our choice of accomodation, we all loved it.

Amazing spot. We felt lucky to be staying at such a beautiful remote spot with jetty and access to the water. Large house and lawn and very private with great view and sun. We highly recommend and look forward to coming back.

Had a amazing time lovely spot in the lake

Stayed November 2021

This property needs some love. Overgrown, missing the basics. Great it has bedrooms off the large deck. Plenty room for 3 couples. Pleasant view. Don’t feel it was value for money. Would not stay again, to far from town to dine out. Very narrow driveway.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback Denise and we're sorry to hear you felt that way! The property does have a narrow driveway and we try to convey this on the listing as clearly as possible, as well as the more secluded location of this holiday home, ideal for those wanting to enjoy the lake! we keep an eye on gardens and supplies at all times but will ensure anything that needs doing gets addressed. We're glad you enjoyed the spaces, views and rooms off the deck!

Stayed February 2021

We loved staying at this property. The house itself is gorgeous with cosy bedrooms and lovely furnishings. It was great at night sitting outside with the fire going looking at the waters edge. Fantastic to have our own jetty and a bonus to have kayaks to use. Would definately come back.

Stayed January 2021

Wow wow wow - what a property! Photos don’t do this home justice. Right on the water with a magnificent lawn watching all the wildlife. Private little bay within Lake Rotoiti. Beautiful home with everything you need. Have recommended to friends and family.

Stayed January 2021

Great retreat for a family to unwind. Beautiful spot at the lake edge!! Have made lots of lovely memories. The house gets all day sun along with the lake to swim in. It is well equipped and very comfortable rooms, each one having a view.

Stayed November 2020

Our stay at Lakes Edge was fantastic. The property had everything we needed and is setup as a home away from home, with the awesome bonus of being right on the water. Our kids loved paddling around in the kayaks and we enjoyed cooking on the BBQ out on the deck. We would definitely recommend it to others and hope to return to stay again.

Stayed October 2020

Awesome views, very relaxing and quiet position. Great place for rest and relaxation.
