Sit out on the shaded deck or in the lounge or lie on one of the beds in the two main bedrooms and soak up the magnificent views of Lake and Mount Tarawera that stretch out in front of you.

If you have a boat, launch it at the nearby Stoney Point Reserve boat ramp and tie it up at our private jetty at the foot of the property. There is a dedicated boat trailer park on the property.

The main house has an upstairs master bedroom with lake views and an en-suite. Downstairs there are two bedrooms - one with a queen bed that looks out to the lake and a second bedroom that has twin bunks. There is a separate bathroom and toilet downstairs.

In the lounge there is a flat screen TV with Sky decoder and a DVD player. On the mezzanine floor there is a pool table, a selection of board games and a well stocked library.

The house has a modern kitchen with a Westinghouse oven, microwave, Ikon grill, slow cooker and dishwasher. It also has a separate laundry with washing machine and dryer.

For outdoor cooking there is a choice of a four burner 'Beefeater' BBQ or a 6 burner BBQ with gas supplied. There is also a fish smoker.

In addition, there is a separate cottage containing a queen and single bed with a well equipped kitchenette, separate shower and toilet, TV with Freeview and a DVD player.

Pillows, duvets and duvet covers are provided on each bed. The only linen you will need to bring is sheets, pillow cases, towels and tea towels. (We can provide this linen for an additional charge).

The property is also an ideal winter location for some quality R & R. Just pack up some warm clothes for those bracing lakeside walks along with a stack of books, magazines and DVDs. Inside you will be as warm as toast with the choice of a heat pump or roaring open fire.

  • Great location, fantastic view

    Great location, fantastic view. If you have a boat the jetty is a real asset as no launching and retriving. The driveway is steep at the top so a little tricky getting our 6.5m boat backed in to offload gear, but once launched and on the jetty it was so easy. We left the trailer down at boat shed bay with a lock on it which made it easy as well. The house with cottage was perfect for our two families. BBQ on deck plus the views and fireplace inside topped off a great stay. Will be back !

    Location was stunning ! If you want a lake view you can't get any better . Not too far to travel to main Rotorua and easy to access . The property was large and cosy . Having the extra cottage was fantastic to give each other a bit of space ( too much family time ) beds were comfy and plenty of heaters and firewood to keep you warm . Walking down the jetty can be a bit of a challenge as it's very slippery and steep especially if your pregnant I would stick to looking at the views instead .Thanks

    Fantastic view and great deck area for looking out over the lake and mountain. Cosy fire for winter. Rooms spacious. Older style house--great for a holiday or weekend away.
