Stayed November 2021

Place was very quiet and peaceful, the bed comfortable and kitchen fully equipped. It was great to watch the tui's come and feed at the totara that graces the deck. Ruatotara is comfortable but aged.

This is a gorgeous place to stay. The bush and the lake view setting were just what my two friends and I needed for a relaxing break. The house is well positioned to get sun almost all day with a large deck on two sides and it was also easily warmed in the evenings with the heaters. We enjoyed that the well stocked kitchen and comfortable lounge. It's in a great location too, being a short walk from the lake front and an easy walk through bush to the store at Omori. It's also not far from the Tokaanu hot pools and about an hours drive to the Chateau. We'll be back. Thank you.

What a magical spot, amazing views, a huge deck and a quiet relaxing spot. Lovely native walks, lake and board games for a wet day. The house was well equipped in the kitchen. A wonderful relaxing stay.

On arrival the initial cleanliness of the property was definitely sub standard, but after a call to Monique, our property manager, she arrived immediately and gave us a solution to the problem and had us settled in within a couple of hours. Perfect. The property has a magic view and was a perfect location for us.

Thanks for your review Robyn. We apologise that Ruatotara was not up to our usual high Bachcare standard of cleanliness when you arrived, but we're so glad that your local Holiday Manager sorted the issue out straight away - that is the beauty of our Holiday Managers, they're local and always there to help! We hope to welcome you back soon!

Stayed October 2018

I really liked this place and would love to have stayed longer. It was exactly as represented by the photos, description and price. I particularly liked that the owners belongings being there made it feel like a holiday home and not a sterile or basic holiday let. It was also clean and well provisioned.
