Lake Tarawera Retreat is a three bedroom, three bathroom Lake Tarawera Holiday Home overlooking beautiful Lake Tarawera. This property is a home away from home and an ideal holiday spot for one or two groups to relax and get away from it all.

Wake up to the song of the birds, the lake and the mountain views and prepare for another day in paradise. Just 25kms from Rotorua, it is an ideal place to stay!

This Lake Tarawera holiday home is just 200 metres away from arguably the best beach on the lake for safe swimming, sailing and boating. Across the lake there are interesting walks, hot pools and deserted beaches for you to picnic.

Tarawera Home was built by the local builder in 1972 as his family home and has many great features built in. All the rooms are spacious and there is plenty of room for everyone. You get lovely lake and Mount Tarawera views from most rooms.

The large living area at this Lake Tarawera accommodation is separate from the kitchen / dining room and has a big open fire, TV, and DVD ready, and lots of books and games. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven big enough for a Christmas turkey. A gas hob and microwave compliments the 2 outside barbecues.

There are large outdoor decks, one facing the lake and a private suntrap at the rear of the property. There is plenty of parking with a flat lawn area for boats and "boys toys".

What more could you want? Come and enjoy this Tarawera Retreat soon!

This home also offers a basement which is accessed via the garage and is an extended part of garage, with a separate toilet, and a set of single bunk beds, which is an ideal retreat for teenagers (this area has no natural daylight).

Special conditions: Maximum of 6 adults, remaining guests to be under 18. A 4WD vehicle will be required to tow boats over 7m to the top of the driveway. Rates are based on 6 guests.

    Awesome batch! classic 70s architecture, loved the master bedroom view and wall linings. Double bedroom had amazing in built bunk beds for kids. Great fireplace and living room, lots of parking. We will be back again

    Great location and well-equipped property, a little hard to warm up in winter but looking forward to going back in summer. Lots of activities in the area and easy access to Rotorua.
