  • 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.

    2nd time here- great location for a fishing trip! Sheltered jetty that fits up to 6.5m boat, easy distance to launch ramp, great weather while we were here! Planning the next trip!

  • Location and house were great

    Location and house were great. The only negative was the extremely uncomfortable couch. The view made up for it ??

    Tui Glen is beautiful,the view of the lake and mt Tarawera is jaw dropping.we swam kayaked and barbecued ourselves silly for 3 magic days. The locals are very friendly and we took the water taxi across the lake for thermal pool and hot beach adventure it was amazing. The Bach is clean and tidy and offers all you need.don't worry about the driveway just go a few hundred yards up the road to the slipway and turn round,a lot safer than maneuvering in the road. 10 out of 10.
