About the property

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

If your looking for a fun holiday on the waterfront at Lake Tarawera then you have found it with this property. It is a much loved bach built and still owned by the same family from day one in the late 1950s. The cottage and sleepout have all the necessarys to ensure you have the best time at an affordable price. The house is warmed by a very efficient gas fire. A comfortable sleepout with a queen double bed and a single is the plum position along with its own bathroom! Be it summer or winter or that great time of the year in the Autumn when the fishing reaches its peak and the Tarawera trout are in their best condition you are right on the job here.Indeed out in front of this location many of the legendary Tarawera monster trout are caught harling in the evening or early morning. The little place has many of the home comforts so all you need to bring is your linen, food and a little drop of whatever takes your fancy!

Special conditions:

SMOKERS OUTSIDE ONLY AND NO BUTTS LEFT AROUND THE PROPERTY PLEASE.

PETS MUST STAY OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE ON THE DECK AREA.

DEFINITELY NO TENTS PITCHED ON THE LAWN (WITHOUT EXPRESS PERMISSION) NUMBERS OF GUESTS WILL BE STRICTLY MONITORED.

Location beyond compare.

  • 5 of 5

Location beyond compare. A proper, original, gorgeous kiwi bach. Simple and sweet, with everything you need and none of the stuff you don't (Sky, Wi-Fi etc)! We would absolutely book here again, any time of year, three days wasn't enough. Thanks for sharing it.

Great old cottage right on the lake front.

  • 5 of 5

Great old cottage right on the lake front. Having our own boat jetty only a few metres from the house and our dog being able stay with us worked out perfect for our family. Many thanks.

Excellent location but place could do with a spruce up.

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location but place could do with a spruce up. main shower only dribbles water.

If charging top dollar one would expect a slightly more up market experience of the accommodation supplied.

Nonetheless would come back again but perhaps negotiate a cheaper rate.
