This recently renovated single level four-bedroom lake front property offers tranquil accommodation with tastefully appointed furnishings. With wonderful, elevated lake front views set above a lush ponga tree canopy leading to one of the best trophy trout lakes in the world.

Stroll down the short private path under the beautiful ponga fern tree canopy to the flat lake edge and a sandy swimming beach. Less than 100 metres in one direction is the Stoney Point Playground, Picnic BBQ area, Volley Ball court and Boat Ramp; the other way is the shared lakefront pumice based Tennis Court and Walking Tracks. Use the new tennis racquets to have a game, grab one of the new kayaks and head out on the lake to explore or develop your paddling skills on one of the new paddle boards on offer - all included in your stay!

The Boat Shed offers easy access from Spencer Road for both cars and boats for the whole family with off street parking. All next to one of the easiest and least crowed boat ramps in Tarawera.

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, there are polished timber floors, entertainers wrap around sofa setting, large square boat shed timber dining table with leather chairs and log fireplace create an elegant atmosphere. The open plan granite kitchen is fully equipped with quality non-stick crockery and utensils and a Nespresso Coffee Machine.
