This property is near the beginning of the road. It is therefore an easy kayak around the corner to The Landing cafe for a morning coffee. It is close to so many fantastic outdoor activities. A 15 minute drive to the Redwood forest which has a huge range of mountain biking trails or walking tracks. Also 5 minutes from the start of the Tarawera Trail- a new walk from the Landing cafe to Hot water beach. There is a water taxi service that can pick you up at the end of the trail and drop you back to the jetty. There is also a walk starting from the Outlet of the lake to the Tarawera falls. The river disappears underground then re-emerges through fissures in a fractured cliff! The lake is very sheltered from many winds so often has beautiful flat water skiing conditions. Across the lake by Hot Water beach is a rock pool area you can sit in and let the warm water sooth your muscles after a ski. There are so many lovely picnic spots around the lake also. From Humphries Bay there is a walking track over to Lake Okataina. Also on the other side of the lake a walk to Lake Roromahana- famous for the Pink and White Terraces. Rotorua itself also has so many things to do. There is The Luge, the Zorbs , all the Geothermal wonders, wildlife parks, maori culture- the list is endless. Please Note: Do not take your boat down the driveway as there is not enough space to turn it around. Please phone me on 021870063 if you would like to discuss options. Boats can be left at the jetty during your stay. Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$80.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$15.00 per person);

  • Excellent place to stay

    Excellent place to stay. Comfy bed. Awesome deck with spa pool. The fireplace kept the place warm. Great place for our dog to explore. Enjoyed the bush walk along the lake with access at the bottom of the property. We will definitely be back.

    The bach is a perfect (well equipped) base for a Tarawera (or Rotorua) stay. The location is amazing, views outstanding and the house was super comfortable - we would definitely book again and are looking forward to our next holiday there.
