Good things come in small packages but GREAT things come in this absolute lakefront, centrally located, authentic New Zealand bach.

Instantly relax in this cosy and comfortable setting with absolute lake frontage on tranquil Lake Rotoehu.

Well positioned between Rotorua and Whakatane this charming hideaway is the perfect place to unwind or you can fill your days with all the activities on offer : luxuriate in the nearby thermal hot pools; enjoy year-round fishing either from the front lawn or other easily accessed lakes and rivers in the area; tramping or hiking is a popular local pastime; golfing at local Hinehopu is a short drive away or visit other courses in Kawerau, Rotorua and Whakatane. If you are really keen bring your own water skis, fly fishing gear, kayaks or boat (public boat ramp & jetty nearby)…or simply just relax.

At the end of the day light the barbeque and enjoy a glass or two by the open fire, or kick back on the deck to watch the sun set over the lake. As the light fades, wander down to the water's edge and toss a line in - you're bound to be well rewarded.

This well appointed bach has free wifi, one double bedroom, one twin room with two single beds with a queen sofa bed in the living area. The sleep-out in the garden is furnished with a queen bed and additional sleeping facilities for 3 extra people if required.

A service station, shop and delicious café are located five minutes away in Rotoma.

You'll be hooked on Tightlines Lakeside for your next lakefront getaway!

Great location. Would definitely stay there again

Stayed January 2020

This is a really cute bach in every sense of the word. Somewhere you can feel comfortable and at home. The location is superb and the lake perfect for swimming for everyone - nice and shallow and sandy for the little ones while the big ones had fun in the kayak we had brought. Gorgeous sunsets and definitely try the neighbour's honey! We will be back for sure!

Stayed April 2019

2 families with 4x 16-20 yr olds, enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and the peaceful lakeside. We should have been more prepared for fishing. ..but still got to taste some fresh smoked trout 😊

Stayed April 2019

Lovely spot which makes for an easy transition into a relaxing break away.

Stayed March 2019

Such an easy and efficient experience with Bachcare. Adi was great to deal with, and our bach was exactly what we wanted for a quiet weekend away. We hope to come back for another stay!

The house was not tidy we also saw the photos taken weren’t representing the living space well.

Bachcare replied

Hi Debbie, thank you for this feedback and we're sorry to hear this house was not up to your expectations. The photos of the property have since been updated.

Stayed September 2018

lovely home great fireplace, minor issue with shower but did not distract from holiday.

Stayed August 2018

We've been here several years in a row. The place has been nicely spruced up and decluttered and, in contrast to previous years, good, dry(ish) firewood is supplied. It's an ideal getaway within a couple of k's of the Waitangi Soda Springs. We'll definitely come bacj.
