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.

  • The home is beautiful

    The home is beautiful. The location is great, great views and a nice cafe up the rd. Isn't too far from Rotorua either which is great. Only complaint i could make is having to fill up the gas bottle for the bbq. I didnt know it was empty so had to make two trips to the town center and had to pay $30 to fill it up for only a one day use. Also worth to note, do not forget basics - milk coffee etc. The home was clean and very nice to stay at and not mention so cheap! Highly recommend!!!

    Loved the property, plenty of room lovely large living area, close to many walks . Glow worms were amazing just loved it. Quiet and tranquil setting perfect to relax in the evenings. Hot tub was well used by some of us. We all enjoyed the view from all rooms.

    We have named the property “serenity”. The setting, wildlife and Bach are simply stunning.

  • Our group had a great stay at this Bach

    Our group had a great stay at this Bach. It did rain the whole time but fortunately there was a hot tub! Didn't take long to warm up & stayed warm for hours! The board games came in handy & the cupboard full of DVDS. Great view & Nice to be surrounded by greenery. Ended up parking our boat down at boat shed bay as there wasn't as much room as we thought there would be at the house, so next time we would hire a boat shed. Only other downside was no curtains in the upstairs rooms.

    Stunning setting with phenomenal views out over the lake; the large deck is a perfect space and we loved hanging out there. Our kids all LOVED the flying fox - just brilliant. Really, this bach ticked all the boxes for our two families - large open plan living, 4 bedrooms, decent size kitchen etc. The hot tub outside was also great! We would certainly recommend!
