Rainbow Cottage is a 2 bedroom Lake Tarawera Cottage. This new stand alone Tarawera accommodation is a 1 acre property within a gated community with direct access to the lake!

This Lake Tarawera cottage is situated across from a permanent lakeside residence at Te Miro Point, Lake Tarawera. The Cottage has a sunny aspect and is naturally warm in the winter, making it an ideal getaway for the keen fisherman. Wi-Fi is available at a small charge. The large Rainbow Trout in the lake are a welcome addition for those looking to spend days on the water fishing...

As you enter the property you will find yourself in an open-plan living and dining area. The dining area leads to the cosy kitchen. There is a small bench top oven, with a gas cooker on top and a BBQ is also available. The kitchen leads onto the master bedroom which is fitted with a queen bed. Bedroom 2 is situated next to bedroom 1 and is fitted with 2 singles beds. There is 1 bathroom adjacent to the bedrooms. Across the drive from the cottage and at the rear of the permanent resident's garage, is the sleepout. The sleepout can be rented for an additional fee and is suitable for up to 2 adults and 2 children.

Rainbow Cottage has direct access to Ladys Bay - a secluded sandy bay with jetty and mooring facilities. Excellent fly fishing is available in the adjacent Waitangi Bay, providing trophy fish for the fly fishing enthusiast!

The property is family friendly with access to 2 safe swimming beaches. Kayaks and a rowing dinghy are available for use (please bring your own lifejackets), as well as a shared tennis court by arrangement.
