Welcome to your dream escape! Situated on a reserve, 100m from the shores of Lake Tarawera (and a boat ram p), this location makes for the perfect holiday. Great for family fun, or a romantic getaway. This is a fabulous new home right on the lake front where you will have the whole downstairs area which is self contained. This Includes your own kitchen, bathroom, lounge, deck, and two bedrooms, mins away from the new wedding venue the Blackbarn.

20 minutes from Rotorua.

The space
This is a fabulous new home right on the lake front where you will have the whole downstairs area which is self contained. The open plan living area with outside deck and BBQ enjoys the incredible view of the lake and Mt Tarawera which cannot be built out because of the reserve in front of the property. There are two double bedrooms and an extra long window seat in the living area which can fit two people end to end. You will love the native bush and the constant sound of the birds . The sun or moon rising on the lake is spectacular and the reflection of the sunsets breathtaking.
Great features include the outstanding view of the lake and Mount Tarawera with easy boat access, a playground for your kids, BBQ, bush walks around the lake, room for outdoor games, surrounded by beautiful bush and bird life and trout fishing for those with a licence! The water is clean and the beach is safe.
Only mins from new Blackbarn wedding venue.
We are only 20 mins from Rotorua, one for NZ's top tourist destinations and 25mins from the airport. With Taupo 1hr 20mins away and only 1 &1/4 hrs to great surf beaches, this is a great place come home to. Rotorua is famous for its thermal activity, hot pools, world class cycling trails and walks in the Redwood forest.

Guest access

My wife and I built our house at Lake Tarawera 2016. Downstairs is fully furnished for our Airbnb guests. I’m retired but involved as a rural fire fighter and the station just happens to be next door on the reserve. My wife is a volunteer Chaplin at Rotorua hospital and runs music and rhymes for children at local community centre and at the Baptist church
