Small, cozy apartment in beautiful Lake Okareka, just outside of Rotorua. Surrounded by native bush, wake to the sound of native birds outside your window. A short stroll to the lake with kayaking, walking tracks and fishing available. Rotorua is a 10 minute drive away, with a host of restaurants, Maori cultural and adventure activities. We are five minutes drive from the Redwoods Forest, which is famous for its mountain-biking trails. The Blue Lake is just over the hill, which has lovely walking tracks and frequently hosts sporting events both on and off the water. Head 10 minutes towards Tarawera and you have the Buried Village museum and cafe, where you can learn about the volcanic eruption, or watch the sun set over the mountain, while you have dinner at Tarawera Landing.
