Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)
We are Martin, Caroline, Andrew, Mikey and Juliet. Welcome to our little bit of NZ paradise.
NZTarawera purchased this House in 2013
Why NZTarawera chose Lake Tarawera
On a trip to New Zealand in 1998 we fell in love with Tarawera, so much so that when we moved to the country permanently, we vowed to eventually have our own property there - a reason to escape the city and recharge our batteries. We were lucky enough to find the Cheeky Tui and Fidgety Fantail and since 2013 have been sharing our piece of paradise with wonderful guests from near and far.

What a great little spot. The family enjoyed the beach, bikes and kayaks. Being able to bring our 2 dogs was the best.
Probably the only thing I could say the negative is the property is in need of a little maintenance. Kid caught toe on one of the many nail heads sticking up out of the deck!
Otherwise loved it!
Peaceful location, great indoor outdoor access
Great overall family experience with close proximity to water activities. We enjoyed the open plan areas as it gave space to spread out.
Peaceful and beautiful bird life
Great location. Privilege to have dogs stay. Could need some R+M going into next year. No outside tap
Holiday by the lake
Nice location, quiet, peaceful and most of all right by the lake! It’s awesome that we’re provided with kayaks, extremely fun and relaxing! One of the paddles were found broken tho, but it didn’t affect much so it’s fine. The only down side is the little confusion regarding the check out time. We were given information to check out by 10:30am but it was written in the booklet saying 11:00am. Overall a nice place for a vacation by the lake :)
The location of this place is amazingly beautiful! However, the cleanliness of the house is a little lacking.
Nice place to stay
We had a good time at the house. Would recommend to people
The house is located 20 mins out of downtown Rotorua along a beautifully scenic lakeside road. Close enough to pop in and enjoy all of the town's attractions, yet far enough away to escape the wonderful thermal smells!
Lake Tarawera offers boating, fishing, mountain biking, walking and general escapism and relaxation - there's nothing better than throwing a steak (or veggie alternative) on the bbq and relaxing under the stars with a cold drink after spending the afternoon sightseeing in Rotorua.
A trip across the Lake from the Landing Cafe to Hot Water Beach on one of the water taxi's is an unforgettable experience. For those of you with more energy, why not take the 3 hour walk instead and catch the water taxi back.
Tarawera's explosive history can be explored at the buried village down the road which explores the regions past before (and after) the 1886 eruption of the mountain. Luckily you're more likely to be hit by a flying wallaby (yes, they do exist in the bush there) than a volcanic rock these days.
This is New Zealand's countryside in it's most pristine and peaceful state. Nature, heritage, serenity and some much needed sanity. One coffee sat by the lakeside watching the ducks, swans, trouts and kingfishers can undo a world of tension and stress!
For those extended family stays, we also own the Fidgety Fantail next door which sleeps 9 and can also be found on this site. Between the two houses we can accommodate up to 16 guests.
