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 makes this House unique
Get back to nature and share in the bush and birdsong at the quiet end of the Lake
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Beautiful property and tranquil
Fantastic place to stay for peace and quiet away from wifi.
What a great cabin! I am a bit hesitant to leave a good rating as I want to keep this hidden treasure all to myself! It was the perfect location for a "boys weekend away" The Cabin was spotless and communication with Martin was fantastic. We will definitely be back again soon!
Value for money Bach
We loved staying at the property and was a great price. Good facilities and lots of character.

Thanks for letting us stay with our dogs. Woof!
This place is so inviting. A real Bach feel. Comfortable & relaxing. Easy walk to the crystal clear waters of the lake.

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.
