    It's a fairly remote property but we were well aware when we booked it so it was no problem for us. There's heaps to do near by. We loved taking the water taxi to hot water beach and walked back along the stunning Tarawera trail. We saw hundreds of glow worms on the cliff near the lake when we crossed the road after dark. We had a wonderful Christmas.

    Beautiful area! House was lovely and had everything we needed. Had an amazing holiday.... Mountain biked, rafted, luged and zorbed! Ashley was super great to deal with and made sure it all went smooth for us with no hassles.

    I would highly recommend staying in this lovely lake house where you feel right at home very quickly. A very short walk to the beautiful lakeside was a bonus on top of the nice furnishings indoors and outdoors. I loved how you get to enjoy lake views out the front and private farmlands out the back!
