    “We loved the property and the location and the configuration of the house.”

    Our only real gripe is that the BBQ only worked on one element and then only on low. As we had planned to cook on the BBQ most nights this proved a real disappointment to find it dirty and pretty much inoperable. On top of that the lawns were long and weedy and desperately needed mowing which also disappointed. Given the premium price we paid for the week this was not good enough in our opinion. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback on your recent stay at The Lake House Garden. We truly appreciate your input. The BBQ has now been replaced, and we apologise for any inconvenience they may have caused during your stay. We've also discussed your comments about the lawns with the owner, who assures us that they were mowed a week prior to your visit, but due to the warm wet conditions in the interim, growth was rapid. Nevertheless, we'll try to ensure that lawn maintenance remains a priority moving forward. We're delighted that overall you enjoyed your stay, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to host you again soon. Bachcare

The property

Set back one block from the lake and enjoying an elevated position for a great view of the lake, this home away from home is ready and waiting with a cosy and welcoming ambience. Welcome to The Lake House Garden! Quietly tucked away from the main road, The Lake House Garden has three outdoor seating areas to sit back and relax with a cuppa and a book with no sound of traffic. The large front deck has an outdoor lounge suite, while the back terrace offers an outdoor table and chairs perfect for al fresco dining on those warm summer evenings. Indoors you'll find comfort in the beautifully decorated semi open-plan living space, complete with a TV with Freeview and a wood burning fireplace for toasty warmth on a winter stay. The spacious and modern kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need to self-cater your stay and plenty of storage for all your holiday favourites on those longer getaways. Three bedrooms comfortably sleep up to eight guests here at The Lake House Garden, including a great bunk room perfect for the kids to set up as their own little holiday haven. A family bathroom, plus a bonus guest toilet in the laundry complete the set up for your stay. Enjoy your time in the lovingly kept front and back gardens listening to the birdsong of the native tui and kereru, or take the short walk two doors down to the council reserve and kick a ball around with the kids. There's also an access road from this reserve that allows parking for boats and vehicles inside the lockable back gate at The Lake House Garden. It's just a three-minute walk, or one-minute drive, down to the safe swimming and boating beach at Mission Bay. If you need to top up on the staples, you'll find a service station just a short drive from your home away from home, or for a coffee and cake fix you can visit Licorice Cafe a six-minute drive away in Motuoapa. For a few more options, you'll find Tūrangi a 13-minute drive away in one direction, and Taupō 30 minutes in the other. Your tranquil lake escape awaits at The Lake House Garden!
