  • Lake Edge property that sleeps 8 from a spacious comfy house with large lounges and sun rooms
  • Fantastic views from large wooden decks of the whole mountain and lake from upstairs and downstairs
  • Large L shaped jetty for boats and bathing in a secluded sandy bar protected from prevailing winds

A lake edge large spacious family home with the most fabulous views of lake Tarawera and the whole mountain and with large sun decks.

The house sleeps 8 people, is very suitable for 2 families, and has a large deep water jetty with a "L" shaped platform at the end for sunbathing or tieing the boat up to. The bay has a sandy bottom and is reasonably secluded.

The jetty and bay are ideal for swimming and are protected from prevailing winds.

There is ample offstreet parking for up to 4 cars at the property. There is also a separate park boat on the property. There is also boat parking on the road behind the house or at Boatshed Bay nearby.

The house is in a beautiful quiet location on the edge of Lake Tarawera and is close to boat house bay- so its not a long drive down to the far end of Spencer Road . "The Landing Cafe" is not far away.

The house boasts terrific views of whole lake, Mt.Tarawera and the white cliffs from the large decks and lounges. The spacious two storey house sleeps 7 people in 4 bedrooms and a bed for the 8th person is in the large lounge downstairs.

The upstairs has a double bedroom and small single bedroom, toilet and bathroom, (orginal existing building-but clean and tidy),-the remainder of upstairs is openplan with the kitchen, large lounge, sun room and dining area all flowing out to a large deck and BBQ.The downstairs (fully renovated 2004) has two new bedrooms, modern bathroom and a living area with surrounding decks and more awesome views to the lake and mountain.

The gardens are mountain landscaped with Tarawera rocks and tussocks.The Lake is renowned as the trophy lake and trout can be caught off the jetty in the Bay.

The house has generous living areas suitable for two families to have their own space or for adults to be upstairs and children to be downstairs.Please note: the house is not suitable for preschoolers and babies.

The house is close to Boat shed Bay and not at the end of SpencerRoad.

  • The house had everything that we required for our 4 night stay

    The house had everything that we required for our 4 night stay. Caught 13 trout from the boat and 1 from the house jetty. Great to tie the boat up and pop up to the house for lunch. The drive is steep so you do need a vehicle to do the job in the wet if you have a boat, no problems otherwise. Great views from inside the house and from the decks. thanks!!!

  • The house was very well equiped and comfortable

    The house was very well equiped and comfortable. Plenty of room for a large group. The views were magnificent. What a way to start your day sitting on the deck with a coffee taking in the beautiful sight.

    Place had a fantastic view and felt very private despite being quite close to the neighbours. Shame we never got to use the BBQ. Would love to stay again.
