Generously proportioned architectural spaces with striking design, layout and modern furnishings create a strong holiday “feel” encouraging both relaxation and activity. Accommodation flexibility together with the open plan living/dining/kitchen ensure a highly integrated approach to holidaying. Large living spaces, with log-burning fires in each, cater for different family groups and activities.

The spacious 15-year old house offers a wonderful elevated view of the lake and Mt Tarawera from two large decks, with lake access for swimming and lakeside tracks via a nearby short walkway. The sunny property, with surrounding native birds and bush, offers great off-street car/boat parking and good turning space. Situated at 240 Spencer Road, there is handy access to boat launching at Stoney Point.

The natural beauty at Lake Tarawera offers a great backdrop for multiple water activities – water skiing, wake and paddle boarding, yachting, trout fishing, kayaking and good old-fashioned swimming; also a visit downstream to the falls on the Tarawera River. Tramping, mountain-biking, jogging, horse-riding and climbing opportunities abound among other world famous lakes - the Blue and Green, Okataina, Okareka, Rotomahana, Rotoiti and Rotorua.

Holidays in Rotorua have long been the source of lasting memories for both experienced international travellers and the impressionable young, who have treasured childhood experiences.

For the creatively inclined Lake Tarawera’s natural settings offer opportunities aplenty for painters and photographers. Visit The Landing café or dine in style at Solitaire Lodge; call up the water taxis to reach Hot Water Beach or the outlet walk/falls; climb Mt Tarawera; experience the Redwood Forest and the Buried Village with its excavated ruins of Te Wairoa, buried in the 1886 eruption.

  • Great bach thanks

    Great bach thanks. It was very well set up and having the kayaks and ping pong table was a bonus. Would happily stay there again.

  • Great bach and great location! Very cosy in the middle of winter...

    Great bach and great location! Very cosy in the middle of winter with the fires and electric blankets. It had everything we needed! Great views and the walk along the Lake front is just gorgeous. We are very keen to come back and have already recommended this bach to friends!

  • Lovely cosy home - great getaway for a larger family

    Lovely cosy home - great getaway for a larger family. It rained most of the time we stayed but the location, tranquil setting and comfortable home made it relaxing and didn't feel like we were in each others space - plenty of room.
