Beautiful 3 brm house and sleeppout at Lake Tarawera with stunning lake and mountain views. Open plans kitchen and dining flows on to lounge and the large deck outside. The large deck overlooks the lake and is well fenced and safe for children. Separate sleepout with double/single bunk bed. 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.

  • The house has a perfect location near Rotorua (15 min drive)

    The house has a perfect location near Rotorua (15 min drive). The area is quite and the house has a beautiful view to Lake and Mount Tarawera. The interieur was clean and two of rhe three bedrooms are nice. The third bedroom is very small and has washing mashine and dryer in the room. It was also a bit damp. The exterior needs a good cleaning. The deck, railing and the exterior were dirty and full of spider webs. The owner promised to clean everything.
