Our very well appointed and extremely peaceful holiday home has the most breathtaking views of Mount and Lake Tarawera, which is situated at the quiet end of the lake approximately 20 minutes from Rotorua. Surrounded by mature bush & native birdlife you can simply relax amidst the natural beauty that is uniquely Tarawera or for those seeking that trophy trout our excellent boat access, dry boatshed, and close proximity to launching is sure to appeal.

Whatever your pleasure, you’ll enjoy unwinding over a drink at the Retreat’s very own “Lava Bar” with a billiards/pool table and dart board. For the more energetic, the Retreat offers badminton, boules, croquet and use of our ¾ tennis court with equipment supplied. Children can occupy themselves outside for ages with sporting activities or hide and seek in the massive garden or inside with the expansive set of board games!

Enjoy the spectacular views whilst using the bbq on the very large deck. Lots of comfortable outdoor furniture supplied to soak up the scenery. Inside, there’s a log burner (wood supplied) and the two living areas offer lots of space for the family to spread out. Add on the well equipped kitchen with high chair for toddlers, stereo, TV/Freeview, DVD/video [Sky is installed bring your own decoder], laundry and you really have a home away from home.

This really is a slice of heaven. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.


Please note the bedroom with 2 single bunk beds is under the house and does not get used as often as the other bedrooms. Therefore it needs to be aired out on arrival as it smells musty. There is a dehumidifer provided and there are doors and windows to open.

Our holiday home is a bach, complete with a water tank so it's not to be confused with a modern, sleek and upmarket place - its a comfortable home with everything provided.

 Each visit, just gets better! Heaven on earth! 

 Fantastic location and spacious property. Very relaxing place to be. Downstairs bedroom is damp smelling, could be ok in summer. 

  •  Yes the downstairs room doesn't get much sun and if no-one has stayed for awhile it does need to be aired out. There is a dehumidifier available plus doors and windows to open. 

 The location and set-up of this property is amazing - the views are to die for!! Great location for a family group as we all had our own space - with ensuites! We would definitely return to this place we now call 'heaven'. 

 The location was serene and the view spectacular. Lots of room for the children to explore. We bought our racquets for a family tennis comp, but sadly couldn't play as the grass was too long which was disappointing. Also agree with other comments that a bit of TLC is in order — was musty, dusty and full of cobwebs, but these were minor things which didn't really impact on our stay. Having a bbq on the deck with an afternoon drink and that view was pretty special. Thank you. 

 Loved the location and the layout of the bach. It does need some TLC in general as others have mentioned on reviews but this would not put us off booking this bach again. Great views from the deck andl very well equipped with everything a family would need. A great bach!
