Situated down the sought after end of Spencer Road and less than a three minute walk from the boat ramp, the FAMILY LAKE ESCAPE is the perfect place for your next family holiday.

With 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one is en-suite) this Lockwood home can comfortably accommodate a 2 family or inter-generational holiday. It is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also gets a good deal of sun and there is heaps of space for parking cars and your boat off street, both of which are a bonus at Lake Tarawera. It has a Kent wood burner and the wood is provided, making it a nice and cosy place to stay in the winter.

The home is nestled in the native bush with views over the Otumuto Lagoon and the Tarawara Plains, which makes for great evening BBQ’s on the deck serenaded by a multitude of native birds.

The FAMILY LAKE ESCAPE is pet friendly and has a doggie door plus fully fenced (+- 90cm high) for your furry friends to run around in when you are out and about. House trained pets are also welcome to sleep inside but not in the bedrooms please.

You will never run out of fun activities. If you are not fishing or water skiing on the lake, there is a single and a double kayak (and plenty of life jackets) to explore the Otumuto Lagoon. If that sounds like too much work, grab a drink and relax in the spa pool.

There are also plenty of other options to keep both adults and children entertained. Upstairs has a 55 inch smart TV with Netflix and downstairs has an entertainment room with a 37 inch TV, Playstation 3 with a selection of games, Movies, a foosball table, dart board, table tennis table, board games, a croquet and cricket set for outside and the list goes on!

The FAMILY LAKE ESCAPE is the epitome of a fun place for any family to enjoy and want to return too!

  • Great place to stay, love this house each time we visit

    Great place to stay, love this house each time we visit. The fire warms the place up in a heart beat and its so tranquil on the deck and in the yard.

  • Fantastic place

    Fantastic place. Bit of a drive from the main town but that was fine with us. We stocked up on food and were set for the weekend. Great layout, plenty of room, several games to enjoy. Comfy and the fireplace was perfect. Great cooking facilities. Clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend for a good family getaway. Near the boat ramp as well.
