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.

    A beautifully kept bach and property. The outlook is beatiful and so very relaxing. We enjoyed our two night stay and hope to be back again some time.

    What a beautiful spot! The views are spectacular and even in the unpredictable weather we had a great time watching the changing scenery and wildlife. The house had everything we needed and was really cosy with the gas fire.

  • Peaceful, clean and tidy property

    Peaceful, clean and tidy property. I can see why people keep returning to this amazing place, with glow worms right outside your door, private access to the lake with kayaks and of course the beautiful lake Tarawera views.
