Fantail Cottage is a cute 2 bedroom Lake Rotoiti holiday home with an additional 1 bedroom self contained unit, located in Gisborne Point. This laid back, family-friendly home is set across a single level with an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area.

This Lake Rotoiti holiday home is situated on a generous section, that allows room to safely park your boat (up to 7m in length). With a recently built fish cleaning area, this is a great spot to have as a base for a fishing holiday!

You will find 2 bedrooms in the main dwelling of this Lake Rotoiti accommodation. The first is fitted with a queen bed, and the second with 1 double bunk set. Located in the studio unit is a double bed, and an additional bathroom and shower.

The closed pot-belly fireplace is perfect for toasty nights around the fire when the weather gets a little colder. On days when the weather is a little brighter, set yourself up on the deck and relax in the sunshine!

Close proximity to the boat ramp and lake means you are never far away from a day of outdoor pursuits on the water. Hot pools are accessible by boat only (10 mins).

When you are after peace, quiet, and time on the water, this Rotoiti accommodation is the place to be!

House was lovely but there is no wifi or phone reception so i could not contact anyone. Had to drive to 15 mins down the the road to use my data or make phone calls.

Stayed March 2021

Was a really nice stay and functional property. Only things was the traffic noise shook the house when trucks went by.

Stayed February 2021

Very comfortable home and lovely deck and great bbq to enjoy the summer days and evenings. Just a short walk down to Lake Rotoiti. Although the property backs onto a main SH it really didn't bother us very much at all. So dark at night the stars were magnificent.

Stayed February 2021

Property was clean and the almost self contained sleepout adds flexibility but beware of road noise from the main road behind and the rugby club concert Saturday night.

Thank you for your feedback. The location of the property is noted on the listing and there is also a note advising guests that there may be some traffic noise due to the proximity of the property to the main road. We haven't found ongoing concerns with noises from the rugby club and we are sorry that it was an issue on this occasion.

good property need some little improvements

Stayed December 2020

It was really helpful for our family group to have a separate sleep out for the third bedroom for extra privacy. Plenty of space to park the boat and a really nice deck to chill on at the end of a day on the water. Great location for lake access although the trucks in the night along the nearby main highway make the house shake.

The photos make the space look bigger than it is, but for our family of 4 it was everything we needed.

Stayed March 2020

A little vacuum would of been great as there were bugs inside on the ground , also the bbq wasn't as clean as expected but all in all we enjoyed our stay .
