  • 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.

  • Lovely views, cute cottage

    Lovely views, cute cottage. Generally clean and comfortable. Shower pressure is uncomfortably low. Steps to the lake are old and we found them dangerously slippery. Gas fire was lovely. Coffee/Sugar were affected by damp, cottage smelled very musty. No milk on arrival, dishes need a run through in a dishwasher as cups very stained, some chipped. No drier or cell phone service. Would stay 1-2 nights but not longer.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tui Glen! The property is well situated in a nice quiet area close enough to the shops if you need. The kayaks were lots of fun and the house had everything you need.
