About this property

Holiday home at Lake Tarawera, Rotorua

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 modern kitchen has a dishwasher. The house is equipped with all mod cons. There is a heat pump in the living area and heater for bedrooms on those cold days. There is also a log burner heater (please bring your own firewood).

The house has parking for 3 cars. There's additional parking on the street by the driveway and behind the house on Te Tora Dr. You can also park a boat on top of 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.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$60.00 per stay); NOTE: In typical Kiwi bach tradition please bring your own linen (towels, sheets, pillow cases and tea towels).
