This was our family home for 15 years and was a fantastic place for our kids to grow up - it was like always being on holiday! With a half acre of land to spread out on, including a 50 metre long sandy beach and huge lawn area for cricket or soccer or whatever, your family will love the environment, the space and the private access to the water's edge.

Situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac away from Rotorua's sulphur smells, our holiday home is close to all the famous Rotorua attractions such as the Agrodome, Zorb, Rainbow Springs, Mitai Maori Cultural Experience, Skyline Skyrides, Te Puia, Whakarewarewa, Rotorua Museum etc etc.

Three excellent golf courses are within a few minutes drive and world-class fly fishing is available at the bottom of the garden, with the famous Ngongotaha stream a 200 metre stroll along the sandy beach.

The local boat ramp is a 1 minute drive away and we have a secure boat park and washdown area inside the property, or you can anchor at the bottom of the garden...

The massive deck offers the best outside living, with BBQ and covered area for wet weather, plus there is a trampoline to keep the kids busy.

The house is very spacious with huge living areas and a separate lounge for the kids, Sky TV, WiFi, etc etc.

There is also a self-contained apartment attached to the house for extended family groups.

This is a family-focused holiday home and kids are totally welcome!

  • This holiday house was perfect for our family group of 9

    This holiday house was perfect for our family group of 9. The main living area is large and very comfortable allowing us to spread and do our own thing. The house was very clean and well presented, beautiful artwork all around, the kitchen large with all the modern conveniences cooking for a large group needs. The view of the lake just at the end of the lawn is just beautiful . We had a really relaxed time in this house.

    Fantastic being on the lake front, and being able to sit on the deck enjoying the views. Great front lawn to play games. Bach is roomy and enough space for two families.

    The location is fantastic! What a great spot - just amazing being right on the lake. Great for kids with the kayaks and the trampoline and the kids room. Really enjoyed our time. So close to Rotorua's offerings and shops...

  • Excellent position right on the lake

    Excellent position right on the lake. Large living areas and outside deck with shade make it a very liveable, very relaxing place to be.
