Sip on your morning coffee and enjoy the sounds of the calming waters of Lake Rotoiti - Welcome to Freshwater Boat House!

This bright and comfortable holiday home lies just at the edge of Lake Rotoiti with its own private jetty and boat mooring. Freshwater Boat House includes all the essentials, no matter the time of year. From summer days spent out on the sundeck or cooking up a storm on the BBQ to winter nights snuggled up in the lounge kept warm by the fireplace. And of course, the must-haves are on hand as well with WiFi, a dishwasher and plenty of room to park the boat.

There are four bedrooms, sleeping up to 10 guests so if its a big family getaway to the lake or a big fishing trip to escape from the hustle and bustle; Freshwater Boat House has you covered.

If being right by the lake wasn't enough, this holiday is situated onyl 6-minutes from the airport, less than 15-minutes into the heart of Rotorua and only a 35-minute drive to Papamoa Beach

For classic lakeside adventure and a comfortable spot to call home, you can't go wrong with Freshwater Boat House!

Me and my family recently booked the boat house. It was an absolutely fantastic experience. The holiday home is well looked after. We had no issues with anything. Kayaking was a lot of fun and the kids were swimming in the lake. Lovely bbq area and stunning views. The house is very spacious considering there were 9 of us. Overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute.
