  • Enjoy one of the most spectacular, uninterrupted views of Lake and Mount Tarawera
  • Pool table, darts and impressive Kauri 'Lava Bar'
  • Be amazed by the dazzling stars in the sky at night

Our very well appointed and extremely peaceful bach has the most breathtaking views of Mount and Lake Tarawera, which is situated at the quiet end of the lake approximately 20 minutes from Rotorua. Surrounded by mature bush & native birdlife you can simply relax amidst the natural beauty that is uniquely Tarawera or for those seeking that trophy trout our excellent boat access, dry boatshed, and close proximity to launching is sure to appeal.

Whatever your pleasure, you’ll enjoy unwinding over a drink at the Retreat’s very own “Lava Bar” with a billiards/pool table and dart board. For the more energetic, the Retreat offers badminton, boules, basketball, croquet and use of our ¾ tennis court with equipment supplied. Children can occupy themselves outside for ages with sporting activities or hide and seek in the massive garden or inside with the expansive set of board games!

Enjoy the spectacular views whilst using the bbq on the very large deck. Lots of outdoor furniture supplied to soak up the scenery. Inside, there’s a log burner (wood supplied) and the two living areas offer lots of space for the family to spread out. Add on the well equipped kitchen with high chair for toddlers, stereo, TV with Sky, DVD/video, and you really have a home away from home.

This really is a slice of heaven. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Our dry boat shed on the property is available:

7 metres long

2.3 metres wide

3 metres high

Please note - Our bach is an older home and comes complete with a water tank so guests need to be water wise.

The bach is not to be confused with a modern, minimilist, upmarket home - this a comfortable home with everything you need for a relaxing getaway.

    Absolutely stunning view. The area is simply gorgeous and it is a pleasure to soak it up on the deck listening to the beds. House had everything we needed.

    Amazing spot, with beautiful views and sooo quiet (which we loved). A short stroll to the lake. Great to have two living areas and many a pool battle for us novice pool players.
