Guest reviews for Laze by the Lake

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed April 2022

Kids loved the games room and spent hours playing pool and darts. The kayaks were also great and good quality. Love that we could take our wee dog but the floor is painted plywood so was super slippery for little paws. But overall, a nice holiday!

Stayed April 2022

Me and my family had an amazing time staying at this gorgeous place. Having the forest across the driveway was awesome for our dog walks and exploring with the kids The gravel driveway to the house wasn’t as bad as what other reviews have said We will be back but next time, staying longer than a few nights An amazing getaway!!

Stayed April 2022

If you're considering booking this place, do it!!! It is an absolutely stunning location, quiet, secluded yet with friendly neighbours. Don't let the gravel road to get there put you off, there are a few adventures to be had there too, as we discovered! The house itself is beautiful, clean and well appointed and a tribute to the family that owns it. Thanks for sharing it with us, and The Boss rocks!! Des Stayed April 2022

Great stay, fantastic views and well equipped. Very clean and tidy. Will be back

Stayed June 2021

Although hard to find, we thoroughly enjoyed the house and unfortunate for us it was winter as this house would be awesome in the summer (limited water use) not our worry as it rained most of the time we were there. Great area for the kids who stayed at that end of the house for the duration. It had a pool table, board games, toys, books, dvds etc heaps of things for the kids to do. The house was warm with the heaters and the fire was cosy and warm. A well stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal and clean up. The walk down to the lake was lovely even in the rain and I wish it was summer it would have been awesome to hang down there and swim. The driveway was metal and a few potholes but held up well in the rain and we're glad we had a Ford Ranger truck. This house was lovely and I would stay there again.

Lovely property with an outstanding view. A home away from home which was perfect... ticked all the boxes.. will definitely stay there again

Stayed January 2021

We throughly enjoyed our stay here , loved waking up to the views of the lake and just a 2 minute walk down to check it out peaceful too. Very open , spacious and plenty of space to move around. The gaming room was great we had heaps of fun. We just didn’t like the gravel road leading up to the house as much and hopefully soon a finished road can be done soon.

Stayed January 2021

We had a lovely stay at the bach which provided lots of entertainment when the weather was too windy to get on the lake.

Stayed December 2020

Our Bachcare manager Kirsty was fantastic. Great communication. Property has everything you need. Very clean and tidy. Stunning views!

Stayed May 2020

Great property to stay in if you’re looking to relax and not adventure out as it is quite away from town and the gravel road you travel on to reach the house can really ruin your car tyres the views are spectacular and the house has a lot of entertainment for the kids and adults It makes it that much better. If you’re looking to just relax and get out of the hustle and bustle then this is the place for you 😁

Stayed February 2020

The views from this place are stunning with easy access to the lake. A nice spacious place to relax - just a lot of cobwebs that need removing. Otherwise, great for large families and children.

Stayed November 2019

What a beautiful property, perfectly positioned next to the lake this property has everything you need for a lakeside escape. The kids in our group loved the games room with so many options to keep them entertained and the outlook really is amazing

Stayed October 2019

This property is on a beautiful private location overlooking Lake Rotoiti. The house itself caters well for big families such as ours. When the weather is on point (which it was for us), you will experience breathtaking sunrises and sunsets the perfect backdrop for family photos. “Thank you for helping our family create some wonderful forever memories Laze by the Lake, we’ll be back again.” 👍🏼😀♥️

Stayed September 2019

We had a lovely stay here for the school holidays. Lots to do in the area and heaps of activities for kids in the house when weather was bad. We didn’t find the unsealed road as far as mentioned in other posts. It was the perfect location to feel away but close enough for things to do. Kirsty went above and beyond and we were very happy with the service. Will probably come again. Thanks

Stayed August 2019

A beautiful bach on the lake, so serene and quiet. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed June 2019

Lovely location with the view of the lake and the fire place was a pleasure.

Stayed April 2019

Stunning views, quiet and peaceful location, a great place to stay if you don't want to enjoy the attractions of the local area but have the space of a nice home.

Stayed April 2019

The care we received from our home stay was very down to earth & friendly ... we were giving a very warm caring welcome . It was treated as if it was their home . Genuine care all around .... if I had a property to lease I would give it to this company to look after for me .

Stayed March 2019

Laze by the Lake is an isolated property with an 8 minute drive on a narrow, rough private forestry road about 20 minutes out of Rotorua on the airport side. If this is what you are looking for - then this property will suit you. The house itself is nice with modern furnishings and a lovely outlook. Some maintenance is required on the property eg (water pump going off every few minutes) and BACHCARE has been informed about this by our group.

Bachcare replied

Hi Frankie and Jill - thanks for your feedback on Laze By The Lake. We've updated the listing to reflect the drive to the property. Glad to hear you love the location and the beautiful views - they are absolutely stunning!

Stayed February 2019

Good place to stay as a family with children, very relaxing. Access to the property wasn't what we expected, gravel road and distance from town. Lots of sunshine would make the experience better, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Thank you.

Bachcare replied

We're sorry to hear the weather wasn't great for you and your family Nianna, but we're glad that you still enjoyed your time at Laze By The Lake! We appeciate your feedback about the gravel road and have updated the listing to reflect this.

Stayed February 2019

Amazing location great to be away from town, but so far that it’s an inconvenience to go out. Amazing views and great house to spread out and relax
