  • Stunning unobstructed view of Mount Tarawera across the lake
  • Secluded lake edge site with shared jetty
  • Bountiful native birdlife and glow worms at bottom of garden

Lockwood holiday home on a sheltered lake edge section in Boatshed Bay. Furnished with an open plan kitchen, dining and living area and a gas fireplace for winter. Boardwalk and steps lead down through bush and tree ferns to a shared deep water jetty. The deck, equipped with outdoor furniture and a gas barbeque, provides stunning views across the lake to Mt Tarawera and Kariri Point. The carport at the rear of the bach provides cover for two vehicles.

Native birdlife abounds, a family of quails occasionally meander over the lawn and glow worms can be seen at the bottom of the steps in the evening. The site is private and peaceful and allows for full enjoyment of all that Lake Tarawera has to offer including safe swimming, lakeside walking tracks, trout fishing, boating, mountain biking or just relaxing.

Situated near the start of the Tarawera settlement it is only a scenic 20 minute drive from Rotorua city centre and a short drive to the local lakeside cafe and the Buried Village at Te Wairoa. The nearest boat ramp is a couple of minutes drive along the road or a five minute walk along the lake front track.

Tui Glen is a great place to escape to at any time of the year and is ideal for couples or small families.

  • The location is simply the best with a fantastic view of Lake...

    The location is simply the best with a fantastic view of Lake Tarawera and Mt Tarawera. The property is so beautifully presented inside and out. It is truly special and the name very appropriate as there were Tuis galore. This would rate as the best Bookabach we have stayed in - location and presentation really are tops.

  • The house is such a joy to stay at

    The house is such a joy to stay at. The location is absolutely stunning and the house has everything could want and was really clean. Walking down the path at night to see the glow worms and sitting on the jetty watching the stars - priceless. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise Carol and Neville. We will definitely be back.
