Rotoiti, Rotorua District, Bay of Plenty Region, North Island
Our cottage is in a quiet lake settlement of Lake Rotoehu, about 45 minutes from Rotorua Airport. We are approximately 200 metres from the lake, with views from the front deck of gorgeous sunsets. The Lake is abundant with Trout and professional fishing expeditions can be organised with one of our locals with some notice.
The main cottage has 2 bedrooms, one of which has a queen bed that can be split into singles upon request. The sleepout has a further queen bed and bunks.
All linen is provided and electric blankets and firewood for the wood burner in the winter. Cleaning cost is an additional $40 per stay.
Around 1km down the road is a local Maori owned hot pool complex, outdoors so you can enjoy the stars on the edge of the lake, open from 7am to 9pm every day. Come and kayak on our lovely lake and enjoy tranquility

The four of us stayed at the Back of Beyond cottage for 3 night and four days. As per the description, this cottage is beautifully located near Lake Rotoehu. It is an easy drive from Rotorua and well worth the drive. The views from the cottage are very nice and the setting exudes tranquillity. The cottage provides an ideal base...

Management response:

Thank you Ieme. Unfortunately, you missed out on the new addition of a complete clearlite roof covering the new deck between the sleepout and the main house. It'll be magic to still be able to be outdoors when it's raining. And permanent dry access to the sleepout will also be a bonus too. Thanks for your kind words.

Settle into the quintessential kiwi bach experience with log fire, games and a truly peaceful setting. Plenty to do in the area from water activities, heaps of walks and great coffee. Perfect to just chill and enjoy with friends and family. Stay and enjoy!
