Beautiful 3 brm house and sleeppout at Lake Tarawera with stunning lake and mountain views. Open plans kitchen and dining flows on to lounge and the large deck outside. The large deck overlooks the lake and is well fenced and safe for children. Separate sleepout with double/single bunk bed. Steps walks down to the rear lawn and Te Tora Dr behind the house.

The main house has 3 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. There are spare mattresses for the lounge or the separate sleepout (the sleepout is a simple cabin on the deck). Please note there is a bathroom plus a separate toliet (1.5 bathrooms).

The kitchen has been recently renovated and has a dishwasher. The house is equipped with all mod cons. There is a log fire to keep you warm on colder days.

The house has parking for 3 or 4 cars. There's additional parking behind the house on Te Tora Dr. You can also park a boat on the driveway, though you will need to shuffle cars or park them on Te Tora Dr.

This is house you can really relax in, or enjoy the many activities at the lake or forest areas. Fantastic walks nearby, mountain biking trails, great fishing and swimming in the lake. Only a 15 - 20 min drive to Rotorua's city centre.

This is our own little piece of paradise and we would like to share it with others. We have nice neighbours who are lake residents (including the local security company) so please enjoy the house but treat it with common sense and respect.

Oh BTW the spa doesn't work, sorry. It's all covered up and unused for years.

    The views were to die for! Arrived after dark so had to wait till the morning to see it and it was sure not to disappoint! Well equipped kitchen, perfect location for us as we were attending a wedding at the black barn just down the road! Will definitely be back!

    AMAZING VIEWS! The place has modern decor, great shower pressure and so much more, this place really has everything! From a fab Nespresso pod coffee maker, iron, full length mirrors (for wedding prep), to a sleep out and the most stunning views from the lounge, one of the bedrooms and the fantastic wrap around deck. We loved our stay and are hoping to return soon! We have already recommended this place to friends :)

  • A spacious property with everything you need

    A spacious property with everything you need. And that view! A perfect getaway for a family or friends. There are a few DIY projects that could be done which would really lift this property to the next level but it was perfect for us (4 adults and 2 children).
