Description

  • A stones throw away from the waters edge and your own private jetty.
  • 7 Person spa pool right on the expansive deck to provide optimal views of Mount Tarawera at sunest.
  • Outdoor entertaining area with 8 person outdoor table and large hooded BBQ.

Whether taking a stroll along the waters edge or enjoying a glass of wine while soaking in the spa pool, this place has everything you need to make your experience unforgettable. Located right on the waters edge, with your own private jetty, the vista of the lake and the iconic Mount Tarawera that has shaped the topography of the surrounding landscape is stunning.

The interior of the bach is impeccably furnished, newly refurbished, with bleached and soaped wood floors adding a chic scandinavian feel to this authentic New Zealand black bach. With a new open plan kitchen (Smeg freestanding dual oven with gas hobs, Rocket espresso machine, Dualit toaster) the passionate cook will be well catered for. Large feather-filled comfy linen sofas beside the open fire is the perfect spot to curl up with a book and listen to the Tui’s.

For those seeking a bit more adventure, head outdoors and try your hand at catching some fresh rainbow trout for dinner. Venture to the other side of the lake and explore the natural hot springs at Hotwater beach or walk down the well maintained Tarawera River track to view the breathtaking power of the Tarawera Falls which rocket out of the middle of a 200ft cliff. A boat will be required to access some of these remote areas on the other side of the lake or if you don’t have one, tours can be organized through ‘Lake Tarawera Water Taxi’s’.

For families with children, the water out in front of the house is calm, clear and shallow, perfect for cooling off on hot summer days. There is a kayak provided to entertain and a paddle round to the northern edge of Lake Tarawera to see the native birds nesting in the lagoon never fails to please. A playground, public tennis court, boat ramp and picnic area at Rangiuru Bay is also only a 10 minute walk away or 1 minute car.

Also Mountain biking enthusiasts will be happy to hear that the Redwood Mountain bike park in Rotorua is just 17kms down the road.

    This property is awesome, great position on the lake, beautifully appointed with spa and private jetty. Everything you need (plus more) is there - you arrive and instantly relax. The bonus was catching a few trout, we will definitely be returning.

    The Bach is beautifully decorated and in the most idyllic spot on the lake. The jetty is fantastic. We loved spending time by the lakeside and swimming in lake. We also made use of the Bach's kayak, which was great fun. The Bach is fully equipped for those who love to cook, as we do. The outdoor BBQ area is fantastic.

  • Beautifully decorated (has the wow factor), clean, tidy and fantastic location

    Beautifully decorated (has the wow factor), clean, tidy and fantastic location. Well resourced too with all the bits and pieces you need. Beds are comfortable. Suggestions very minor - dedicated pantry and freezer space for guests - supermarket 25 mins away + 9 days = many grocery runs (freezer full of owner's food). Outdoor umbrella needs attention - very difficult to get up (may need CRC?). But would definitely stay here again.
