Awesome location. Loved it here

Stayed June 2022

Awesome place to stay. Cant wait to go back with my own family as very child friendly too.

Stayed April 2022

Great place beside the lake. Loved it and the facilities. Let down by the dishwasher being full of dirty dishes and no tablets for the dishwasher. We had to hand wash the previous guests dishes. Also the frypan was filthy. Otherwise all else was great.

Stayed April 2022

We had the best time at Blue Heron lodge. It had so many perfect holiday activities for us to make use of. It really felt like we were using a family Bach that we could just turn up to with limited supplies. Plenty of books, games, pool and sport toys to keep everyone happy and well entertained. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were so comfy.

Stayed January 2022

Absolutely love this place. Second visit and we will be back.

Stayed December 2020

Well maintained excellent property. Great service by the property manager.

Stayed October 2021

This is a great little place to stay & the resort facilities were an absolute hit with the kids. So close to Rotorua to see all the attractions & the outlook on the lake is gorgeous. It's likely we will be back sometime

Stayed September 2021

Bachcare was great to deal with, they answered any queries straight away and helped out when needed. We loved our stay and the property was exactly as stated, very tidy. Looking forward to returning.

Stayed April 2021

The property was very clean and tidy, ready for our arrival. And it was super cosy in spite of the wind raging outside. It has a lovely outlook and felt very private.

Stayed January 2021

Excellent place to stay loved it

Stayed November 2020

Great stay, but bring your own pillows as they ones provided aren't comfortable at all.

Stayed October 2020

Our family had a fabulous weekend at this gorgeous house on the lake. Being able to use the kayak was such a treat and the house had a great supply of board games, dvd's etc. It was clean and had absolutely everything we needed. We did pop out and buy some ear plugs as the upstairs room was bit noisy when the young ones were playing games until late and we wanted to sleep, mainly due to there being a blind over the door way. Apart from that we loved it and would definitely book again.

Stayed October 2020

The property looks very beautiful in the pictures probably they were taken when it was newly built or renovated. However the recent condition is not really great. I could see broken furniture and cobwebs around fire place. Property ma ager was least interested in listening to anything about it. They expect you to clean everything after use while the property was left dirty on arrival. Had a bad odour coming from the house. Definitely not spending the money in it.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback Bhaves. We are sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the accommodation. The owners regularly check for any items that are damaged and replace them immediately. This property was cleaned on the day of arrival so our apologies if there were still a few cobwebs in place.

Stayed September 2020

Lovely view and very private house. Clean and well appointed. Would stay there again.

Stayed July 2020

A cosy and well appointed holiday home. It had everything we needed for a few nights with two small children - including a very well equipped kitchen, board games, washer/dryer. It was warm and toasty with the gas fireplace and heat pump, plus extra heaters in the bedrooms. Helpful instructions and manuals provided for the various appliances etc. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into ensuring this is a comfortable place to stay and it shows!

Stayed July 2020

Great property - close to the lake front, located not far from Rotorua. Lovely warm place and venue (Ramada)

Stayed July 2020

Lovely warm property with amazing views!

Stayed January 2020

Really enjoyed our stay! We loved the location, just out enough to be beautifully quiet and peaceful, but close enough to central Rotorua also. Loved the deck and grass area, and gorgeous lake view. Also very impressed with resort facilities, pools, tennis court, restaurant etc. Thank for a wonderful holiday, we would love to return!

Very well equipped and clean property with the most appropriate atmosphere to have a relaxing break. The views at day or night are priceless.

Stayed March 2019

What an amazing bach - perfect position on the water with heaps to do - the best of both worlds. Close enough to town but far enough away to be able to truly relax. Great for families as there is so much to see.

Stayed November 2018

What a beautiful location to escape for the weekend and the property was clean, very comfortable, and had everything we needed. Loved the additional storage to be able to lock away our bikes and other equipment. Thank you for the fantastic stay!

Stayed October 2018

Highly recommended property for families! Great location and awesome amenities. The property was extremely clean and had everything we needed and more, our kids didn't want to leave. The peacefulness of the lake was lovely and the biodiversity was a treat. Top rate property. Thanks Bachcare
