|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Lockwood holiday home on a sheltered lake edge section in Boatshed Bay. Furnished with an open plan kitchen, dining and living area and a gas fireplace for winter. Boardwalk and steps lead down through bush and tree ferns to a shared deep water jetty. The deck, equipped with outdoor furniture and a gas barbeque, provides stunning views across the lake to Mt Tarawera and Kariri Point. The carport at the rear of the bach provides cover for two vehicles.
Native birdlife abounds, a family of quails occasionally meander over the lawn and glow worms can be seen at the bottom of the steps in the evening. The site is private and peaceful and allows for full enjoyment of all that Lake Tarawera has to offer including safe swimming, lakeside walking tracks, trout fishing, boating, mountain biking or just relaxing.
Situated near the start of the Tarawera settlement it is only a scenic 20 minute drive from Rotorua city centre and a short drive to the local lakeside cafe and the Buried Village at Te Wairoa. The nearest boat ramp is a couple of minutes drive along the road or a five minute walk along the lake front track.
Tui Glen is a great place to escape to at any time of the year and is ideal for couples or small families.
Extras: Linen (Optional, NZ$15.00 per person); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Stunning views. Lovely quiet location away from the sulphur smells of Rotorua. Tiny but clean cottage. Parking not easy.
The bach is beautiful and has a stunning view. Would definitely love to go back and stay there. We didn't have time to kayak (provided) or enjoy time around the lake but would love to do that next time. Only faced slight trouble in navigating down the driveway, especially at night time but once familiar it is ok.
We had some very relaxing days at Tui Glen enjoying the awesome view to the lake and Mt Tarawera. Many thanks for sharing this wonderful hideaway. Definitely a place to return to.
Beautiful location, stunning views and cosy home with everything we needed for a comfy stay! Thank you!
Absolutely lovely property! Would be perfect for a long get away. Be prepared for a long, windy drive into town though. Such a peaceful & serene spot with an incredible view! Loved every minute of our stay!
