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.

  • Well equipped house

    Well equipped house. Nice kitchen, bathrooms, living area and a lovely big outdoor deck. Beautiful setting and location. Feels like you are a million miles away! So very peaceful. An important thing to note especially if you have young children is there are no curtains in the bedrooms. So morning wake up is early! Great house!
