  • 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.

  • Very nice bach on the lake side

    Very nice bach on the lake side. It had a good size entertaining area upstairs and good separation of bedrooms upstairs and downstairs. The jetty made boating a breeze and we also enjoyed the flat lawn and decks. Only downside for us was that this house is not set up for a four couples, probably better for two couples with kids. It has two queen/king beds and the rest singles. Having said that we managed ok. Overall, very nice place to stay, I would rent again and recommend to others.
