Unwind in the outdoor Finnish Sauna, leap off your private jetty, and enjoy all day sun and astonishing views of Mount Tarawera at this lakefront home.

Lake Tarawera is know for its clean swimmable water, plentiful trout, hot water beach and beautiful pre-colonial views of Mount Tarawera.

Set over two levels with wraparound decks, this house has three outdoor seating areas and two spacious living areas - making it perfect for two families or one with older children who need their own space.

The space
All year round you will enjoy beautiful views of the lake and mountain and be treated to an unpolluted sky every night for star gazing. Native bird song (Tui's and Woodpigeons) will surround you during your stay, swooping past the house and settling into surrounding native trees to sing.

The house is nestled on a quiet culdesac just 15 minutes from Rotorua city. This street is known for having the best views of Mount Tarawera - you won't be disapointed! It is perfect for a relaxing break or a mountain bike and adventure holiday.

Newly renovated (2019) this home offers all required comforts, large kitchen, well appointed bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms.

A picturesque path of 60 steps at the front of the property leads down to the large private jetty (approx one minute walk) where you can sunbathe and picnic in all day sun. Boats can be left overnight at this jetty, using the nearby Stoney Bay boat ramp (three minute drive) away to launch them.

At the base of the property a bush track winds along the front of the lake to a popular jumping cliff (2 min walk), tennis courts (ten minute walk) and playground (15 minute walk). This walk is achievable, although slower, with children as young as three.

Mountain bike trails begin just ten minutes drive away, the popular Landing Cafe is just four minute drive away.
