This executive house is completely private and has fabulous views of Lake Tarawera. If you are looking for peace, privacy and tranquility this is it! We have a large, open plan living area, quality furnishings, a huge sunny deck out front, 2 1/2 acres of bush and plenty of parking. You can even turn your boat in the drive without unhooking. There are walkways on our land, a rope swing and a wood fired spa pool! Also a ravine where there are glow worms.

Check out our brand new 60 meter Flying Fox on You Tube under "Lake House Uber Fox"

There is a TV, a DVD. We have a collection of dvds for your use or you can bring your own. You can also plug in your own Ipod.

It's a peaceful place as we have no landline telephone. It allows more time for games, conversation, adventures and good food. You can drive further down Spencer Road just a minute or two to Cliff Road, a lovely local place to swim. The put-in for boats at Stoney Point Reserve is just a few minutes drive (about 2.8 kms) back towards Rotorua on Spencer Road where there is also a good playground.

If you want to venture out for a day, a short drive will take you to the popular Blue Lake or Whakarewarewa Forest, (a redwood forest) for some world-class mountain biking or walking trails. It's also a short 20 minute drive into Rotorua with a huge variety of indoor and outdoor pursuits and cafes etc.. Chill out, go hiking, swim, fish, explore, enjoy the hot pools, bike, play cards, read, or hit the town!

We have (almost) no cellphone coverage at the house. There is coverage at the end of Spencer Road.

A linen service is available on request at an extra charge of $15per person. Duvets, pillows and extra blankets are supplied.

There is also a cleaning fee of $60.

  • Spent four nights here and the house worked well for us

    Spent four nights here and the house worked well for us. We were 3 families. The large deck opening out from the dinning and kitchen area was terrific for keeping an eye on the kids and the pets. The flying fox was definitely a hit with the kids. The owners were great to deal with and they always responded promptly. There was also lots of information in the house to keep us right which was good. The steep driveway with loose metal made it difficult to maneuver our boat but we managed. Lake Tarawera is such an amazing place and it is always a delight to be able to spend time there.

  • Great house with easy indoor and outdoor living

    Great house with easy indoor and outdoor living. A great place to relax and feeling at home. If taking a boat easiest with a 4x4 as driveway gravel and our boat was to big to turn around. We left our boat at the boat ramp and one of the locals looked after it. So a real nz atmosphere and friendly surroundings. Thanks pete
