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 an abseiling rope into the 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 and projector for viewing movies. 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 $10 per person. Duvets, pillows and extra blankets are supplied.

There is also a cleaning fee of $50.

  • In one word: AWESOME Great place, nice location, we had so much fun...

    In one word: AWESOME Great place, nice location, we had so much fun with the flying fox. However it took us 3 days to warm up the spa pool but that nice at the end. The house was clean and organized.

  • We miss this home so much

    We miss this home so much. Executive retreat it definitely was! This home is to die for. Well maintained and looked after. The flying fox was loads of fun for all and relaxing in the hot tub all day all night. Our sleeps were amazing. The view that we woke up to everyday was unbelieveably mesmerising and soothing with all the trees surrounding. My kids and mokos had the best time! Big thumbs up to the cleaners. They do a wonderful job. We washed most of the linen b4 we left to help. Xxx

    Great bach, awesome location, great views of the lake, private, secluded and very quiet! Only downside was the lack of blinds or curtains in the master bedroom, this did however force us to get up at 05h30 and witness some magical sunrises.

  • Beautiful house in amazing location - had a great get away

    Beautiful house in amazing location - had a great get away. Takes a few hours to heat the spa but SO worth it, once you get it going. Awesome flying fox too. We had lots of fun here, thank you for a wonderful stay.
