Overview

Photos and Description of this Lake Tarawera holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)

Our very well appointed and extremely peaceful bach has the most breathtaking views of Mount and Lake Tarawera, which is situated at the quiet end of the lake approximately 20 minutes from Rotorua. Surrounded by mature bush and native birdlife you can simply relax amidst the natural beauty that is uniquely Tarawera or for those seeking that trophy trout our excellent boat access, dry boatshed, and close proximity to launching is sure to appeal.

Whatever your pleasure, you?ll enjoy unwinding over a drink at the Retreat?s very own ?Lava Bar? with a billiards/pool table and dart board. For the more energetic, the Retreat offers badminton, boules, basketball, croquet and use of our ¾ tennis court with equipment supplied. Children can occupy themselves outside for ages with sporting activities or hide and seek in the massive garden or inside with the expansive set of board games!

Enjoy the spectacular views whilst using the bbq on the very large deck. Lots of comfortable outdoor furniture supplied to soak up the scenery. Inside, there?s a log burner (wood supplied) and the two living areas offer lots of space for the family to spread out. Add on the well equipped kitchen with high chair for toddlers, stereo, TV/Freeview, DVD/video, Sky is installed, laundry and you really have a home away from home.

This really is a slice of heaven. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Please note - Our bach is an older home and comes complete with a water tank so guests need to be water wise.

The bach is not to be confused with a modern, minimilist, upmarket home - this a comfortable home with everything you need for a relaxing getaway.

Bond required for each stay, refunded after inspection.

Dated but absolutely fine.

  • 4 of 5

Dated but absolutely fine. Lovely stay, would be perfect for 2-3 families. Glorious view. Took alot of heating, thank goodness for the logburner! No kindling or newspaper for starting fire, which was okay except couldn't locate an axe. Lovely hot water. Seems to be issue with TV, as it got warmer the volume failed.

Otherwise enjoyed it all :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. I will look at the TV as I hadn't noticed there was a problem. I apologise for no newspaper being left to start the fire, there is always matches and fire starters provided. We have never left an axe on the property in all the time we have owned the Bach.

We have just got back from our stay at your bach. Our family absolutely loved it! Gorgeous views and a warm and cosy house. My boys enjoyed the pool table and all the board games. Plenty of room for us all. We feel relaxed and refreshed. Thank you

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for allowing us to use your paradise.

Six professional adults all had a wonderful time in your excellent facilities.

We we all very impressed with all the equipment that was available to us. In Winter the fire place was very well stocked and such a wonderful way to relax & enjoy. When we arrived to the batch it was very clean and tidy, warm and with electric blankets for each bed. Plenty of space.

The views are stunning with friendly birds.
