Come and enjoy this special holiday home on the shores of Lake Rotorua.

With all the comforts you would expect from a high quality lake house such as this, you can't help but relax and enjoy yourself as soon as you walk in the door. Most of the rooms have excellent views of the lake looking out to Mokoia Island and beyond.

The house is situated on a large section and positioned to make the most of the stunning lake views and enormous front yard and lakeside reserve. You'll see the city lights across the lake by night and the ever changing Lake Rotorua by day.

Directly in front of the house, you'll also find some of the regions most productive trout fishing waters, and that's saying something considering the Rotorua region boasts some 18 lakes! Bring your fly rod and cast off the front lawn or launch the boat at the boat ramp only minutes down the road. We've seen trout jumping within 15m of the beach right in front of the house so give it a go, you might hook the big one!

There are two kayaks (and life jackets) supplied for you to enjoy a paddle on the lake. Maybe even drag a trout lure behind you as the kayaking speed is the perfect trolling speed.

After a day of enjoying what Rotorua has to offer, come home and relax on the deck and cook a BBQ or soak in the private spa pool looking out towards the lake. The house has high speed fibre wifi and apple tv - perfect for streaming your favourite shows on Netflix. In the garage you will even find fooseball and table tennis tables to keep you entertained.

During the winter months, the house has a wood burner with plenty of wood and also a Heat Pump to keep everyone toasty warm. Don't worry if you don't know how to light a fire, we'll set it all up for you ready to strike a match and start it.

Yes, it's all here so just pack your bags and come and see for yourself, we know you'll love it as much as we do!

    The stunning view from the lounge window as you walk into the house started out weekend perfectly. This was a great house, open plan, loads of space, warm with the fire and heat pump options mid winter and in a great location by the lake with walks in both directions from it. The kayaks were fun on the lake and the spa pool a real treat. There is something for everyone here. Thanks
