Lakehouse Paradise: We've got it all...

 We've been staying at properties around Tarawera for over 12 years and this one is by far the best: brilliantly located, beautiful views and extremely well presented. 

cute cottage, cosy and affordable

 Great location, well designed for a compact place. Was comfortable for five adults. A bonus - the plum tree was the best plum tree we had ever seen in our lives! How wonderful it was to wake up, wander outside to the tree and eat them straight from the tree. Hope that was okay, there were millions :D 

Lakefront Holiday Home

 Nice and convenient place to stay in Queenstown. Beautiful view of lake and mountains from deck and lounge. Very clean and tidy place Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Beautiful Bliss Cottage

 A very well presented cottage, with all you need for a break away from home. What a lovely surprise to find a selection of provisions upon arrival as a welcome. The added touch of fresh herbs and fruit in the garden for guest use is also a very nice touch.
