This recently renovated single level four-bedroom lake front property offers tranquil accommodation with tastefully appointed furnishings. It has wonderful, elevated lake views over one of the best trophy trout lakes in the world.

Stroll down the path through the pongas to the flat lake edge and a sandy swimming beach. Only 100 metres in one direction is the Stoney Point Playground, BBQ and boat ramp; only 100 metres the other way is the shared lakefront pumice based tennis court.

The house offers easy access from Spencer Road for both cars and boats for the whole family.

Once you've settled in, relax on the sun-drenched deck and enjoy the sound of native birds, the waves on the sand and the spectacular views of Mt Tarawera.

Inside the polished timber floors, leather lounges, large square timber dining table with rattan chairs and log fireplace create an elegant atmosphere. The open plan granite kitchen is fully equipped with quality crockery and utensils. Two toilets, one bathroom and separate TV/play room with Sky TV (including sport channels) make a comfortable stay for the whole family.

Lake Tarawera is only a short 5 minute drive to Blue & Green Lakes, 8 minutes to Lake Okareka, 15 minutes to Rotorua, 30 minutes to Lake Rotoiti, and approximately 1 hour to Lake Taupo, Karapiro, Hamilton and many more attractions.

  • We had a great stay at the Boat Shed over Easter

    We had a great stay at the Boat Shed over Easter. In a great location and perfect for a larger family the property had everything you need for a very comfortable holiday by the lake. Was great to have the Kayaks available which the kids loved and also to have the playground and beach at the bottom of the steps. We will be back for sure.

  • This is a perfect place for friends or families to get away...

    This is a perfect place for friends or families to get away to. Well set up and appointed with everything you could need. Ample space and an amazing outlook to the mountain . Great outdoor space and amazing being so close to the water with your own private track to the beach. We had a magic weekend at the house and would definitely stay again !
