About the property

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 9)

On one of Tarawera's loveliest sites, this cosy bach offers comfort and absolute privacy amidst native bush and wonderful birdlife. The front deck has spectacular, elevated views to Mt. Tarawera and looks over arguably the best trophy trout lake in the world. Relax on the sun-drenched deck and enjoy the sound of tuis, bellbirds and the resident Morepork owl. Amble down the drive to the lake edge and sandy swimming beach.

The accommodation comprises of a bach (sleeps 5) and a charming barn (sleeps 4). The bach has an open plan living area with a log fireplace, a small but adequate kitchen with a new oven and hotplates and a bathroom. The large entertainer?s deck has a good gas BBQ and ample outdoor furniture. There is a charming outside bath overlooking the lake. The Barn has a main bedroom area and a bedroom-living area with expansive lake views.

The property offers easy access and ample parking for cars and boats. The driveway to the lake requires a 4WD and leads to a private jetty with a long-line mooring system and a concrete ramp to launch a reasonable sized boat. Take your runabout water skiing, for picnics at Hot Water Beach, trout fishing under the mountain or walks to the Tarawera Falls or over the track to Lake Rotomahana and Lake Okataina.

At Te Karamea you are only a 10 minute drive to the historical discoveries of the Buried Village, 15 minutes to water skiing and walks at the Blue and Green Lakes, 20 minutes to Lake Okareka, 25 minutes to the geothermal wonders of Rotorua, 35 minutes to Lake Rotoiti and a little over an hour to Lake Taupo, Karapiro, Hamilton and many more attractions.

Great spot - very peaceful and quiet - perfect for an easy escape

Easy access and beautiful setting. The Boat ramp and jetty was ideal for our weekend however the turning bay at the bottom is very small for a ute and 6 metre boat - so have a good look before you drive down.

loved staying here.

  • 5 of 5

loved staying here. comfortable bach. plenty of room for the family. clean and tidy on arrival. Plenty of crockery etc. The views are fantastic. Lake Tarawera is the best. Very private location with a nice beach and jetty at the bottom. The only negative is that the outdoor umbrella was broken again and we stayed during very hot days. Maybe a more heavy duty umbrella might be the go. There are a couple of shady spots next to the deck we used. Would definitely love to visit again.

Great location, lots of room to park tent and kids were able to put up tent. Great to be able to launch boat. Please provide an umbrella or shade sail for deck as it's a great sun trap. We've r booked for 2018, can't wait
