An elevated position rewards this gorgeous cottage with lake views to take your breath away - the perfect backdrop to your summer getaway. Welcome to Splendour on Spencer!

A sheltered deck spans the length of this Lake Tarawera holiday home and welcomes you to sit back with a cuppa, or dine alfresco on a family BBQ feast, all the while admiring the stunning view.

Enjoy seamless indoor-outdoor flow into the open-plan living space, where a comfy couch setting is waiting for you and that book you’ve been saving for this very moment. Make it a family affair and snuggle up on the couch with the Sky TV and complimentary WIFI providing the entertainment and enjoy a wood burning fireplace to help keep you warm in winter.

When it’s time to prepare a hearty breakfast or whip up a few sides to go with all your favourites hot off the BBQ, a fully equipped kitchen is ready and waiting. Enjoy sipping your favourite holiday drink long into the warm summer evening as the dishwasher takes care of the clean up.

Three bedrooms, including a spacious loft style retreat, comfortably sleep up to seven guests here at Splendour on Spencer. The master bedroom features a luxurious king size bed, and enjoys direct access to the deck. With views like these, you’ll be coming up with any excuse for a lie in! A family bathroom, with the added convenience of a separate toilet, completes the set up for your stay.

Boat owners will be pleased to know there is space to park their vessel in the driveway, and the boat ramp is just a one-minute drive away for an easy launch for your day of fun on the water! If you fancy simply cooling off with a dip, the public lake access is just a 10-minute walk from Splendour on Spencer.

If you’re looking for an adventure a bit further afield, visit the Redwoods Forest with its mountain bike trails and tree-walk in 20 minutes, and why not check out all the shops, eateries and activities of Rotorua while you’re in the neighbourhood!

Summer alfresco living doesn’t get much better than this. Splendour on Spencer awaits!

We had the best time. Part of me doesn't want to write how lovely this place is because then it'll be harder to get dates in the future!!! But it was the perfect family getaway home for us. Location 15/10, super clean and cosy home, and great facilities. The fire, the spa, having a machine for the kids was all perfect even with all the wet weather Diane was very kind and helpful and bachcare were really easy to deal with. Thank you for a wonderful holiday and I hope we can come back again!

Great bach for a family holiday. Stunning views from the large front deck of Mt Tarawera and the lake. Amazing bird life around the place too. Freshly decorated inside with a great kitchen . Super comfy beds too.Thanks so much!

Two families of three plus small dog. Loved the view and the deep verandah. Comfy beds, great shower, wood burner lovely and lots of firewood and fire starters provided (some papers would be good to provide too.) Slightly temperamental spa but excellent support from property manager about this. Fun games room upstairs for older kids or teens, (although I wouldn't recommend to families with very young children because the railings on the stairs and in the upstairs area would not be adequate.) Hope to return in summertime!
