A true kiwi crib in the tranquil lakeside town of Otematata. With the comforts of home, & the character & charm of a crib, this house was originally built to house workers building the incredible Benmore dam. It has been beautifully maintained & modernised to be an ideal family/couples getaway. Easy walking distance to the pub, golf course & shop & only a little bit further you are at the lake edge! Overlooking the Otematata Station, you may even see a merino grazing as you relax on the veranda

The space
The main house contains 2 double bedrooms and the attached 2-room sleepout contains 2 single beds and a set of bunk beds (2 singles). The rooms open in to each other.

The veranda is completely covered and can be shut off to the outside and zipped up by a large outdoor curtain. It has a fantastic outdoor heater in the area as well - enjoy comfortable outdoor living even in the colder months- a fantastic extension to the indoor kitchen/living area.

‘Ote’ is a well-loved, kiwi holiday town with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The street is quiet and friendly with all amenities in walking distance. The pub does fantastic dinners and the local coffee cart is a must visit! Take a walk through the community built wetlands area or prepare for breathtaking views at the top of the Benmore dam!

I am a Graphic designer with a fur child fox terrier/corgi keeping me on my toes. My crib in Ote is a home away from home, where the minute you walk in the door you feel relaxed and on holiday. I highly recommend pouring a gin and tonic and soaking up the afternoon sun at the picnic table!
