Beautiful 3 brm house at Lake Tarawera with stunning lake and mountain views. Open plans kitchen & dining flows on to lounge and the large deck outside. The large deck overlooks the lake and is well fenced and safe for children. Steps walks down to the rear lawn and Te Tora Dr behind the house.

The main house has 3 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. There are spare mattresses for the lounge or the separate sleepout (the sleepout is a simple cabin on the deck). Please note there is a bathroom plus a separate toliet (1.5 bathrooms).

The kitchen has been recently renovated and has a dishwasher. The house is equipped with all mod cons. There is a log fire to keep you warm on colder days.

The house has parking for 3 or 4 cars. There's additional parking behind the house on Te Tora Dr. You can also park a boat on the driveway, though you will need to shuffle cars or park them on Te Tora Dr.

This is house you can really relax in, or enjoy the many activities at the lake or forest areas. Fantastic walks nearby, mountain biking trails, great fishing and swimming in the lake. Only a 15 - 20 min drive to Rotorua's city centre.

This is our own little piece of paradise and we would like to share it with others. We have nice neighbours who are lake residents (including the local security company) so please enjoy the house but treat it with common sense and respect.

Oh BTW the spa doesn't work, sorry. It's all covered up and unused for years.

Special conditions: Min stays - Pls see online booking calendar. An additional $60 cleaning bill also applies for each stay. No smoking please. No pets (sorry).

  • Location is superb

    Location is superb. Property is very good but heating is poor.

    Owner/manager responds:

    It was a cold snap and the house had been empty beforehand, so it takes a bit of time to warm up after first arrival. There are 5 oil column heaters and a wood burner at the bach, so once heated up, the house stays pretty warm.
