About our home

Our much-loved holiday home, in an idyllic part of New Zealand, is available to be shared by those looking for a special location to visit.
Located to take advantage of “two worlds”:
Situated at Lake Tarawera, one of the many beautiful lakes in the Rotorua area and famous for its trout fishing and beauty. Just 15 minutes from Rotorua passing the Blue Lake, Green Lake and the famous Buried Village.
Rotorua is the “thermal wonderland” of New Zealand – a major tourist destination where you can experience geysers, hot springs, bubbling mud pools, together with many other tourist activities in and around our lakes, forests and farmlands. Google “Rotorua New Zealand” to get an insight.
Our holiday home is well equipped with everything to make your stay extremely comfortable, with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, two living areas and a large outdoor deck area. Behind the house is our special bush-clad “grotto” which runs down into a small valley, including native birds and our very own glow-worms.
Opposite the property is the beautiful Rangiuru Bay, where swimming, boating, picnicking, and walking the many trails is very popular.
The beauty of the location is the quiet and tranquil atmosphere of a small lake community, yet only 15 minutes from Rotorua where you can enjoy one of New Zealand’s leading places to visit.
Available for use is a dinghy and kayak (with life jackets in all sizes).
