If it’s a little cool outside, light the wood-burning fireplace and get cosy in front of the TV.

When it’s time to prepare a delicious holiday meal, a fully equipped kitchen is ready and waiting. Create a few side dishes to go with your BBQ dinner, open up the doors to create seamless indoor-outdoor flow, and enjoy good conversation long into the evening as the dishwasher takes care of the washing up for you.

Stayed October 2021

Very diificult to be able to gain access into the property as neither entry codw worked and did not get a reply when we rang the phone number. Driveway is extremely steep and there is nowhere to be able to turn around so need to be very good at backing down the steep driveway. Once actual access was gained however, the property was clean and tidy. There was no information booklet so struggled to find how to turn the hot water on and did not rwalise until the next morning so had cold showers the first morning.

Stayed July 2021

Beautiful spacious house with great indoor - outdoor flow and brilliant views of the lake. The master bedroom is very comfortable and has a nice roomy ensuite. While more of a summer bach, we stayed in winter and it was a little cold for those downstairs. It was nice upstairs when the fire was going however and most of our time was spent in this great modern living area. Getting reception at the house can be difficult but is achievable in parts of the house at times (by balcony window) but we played a lot of board games and left the house most of the day for sight seeing. Note that the Manager of the property is responsive but it can be challenging to get the timing of communication right due to reception issues at the house and them being out of range for much of the day

Fantastic loaction, however be aware this is a failry tired and basic property. There is an absence of basic essentials for kitchen and bathrooms, so this should be clearly advertisied on the property description so that renters are well prepared (this location is a long way from shops)

Thank you for your review Kim! We're glad to hear you enjoyed this property's amazing location! We're sorry to hear you felt that the property was tired and will be looking into any possible improvements with the property owners. We do advise on the listing (both on the map and the description) that the nearest shops are 25 minutes away in Rotorua town, but appreciate your feedback regarding ensuring guests know what to bring. We do advise during the booking process what supplies we provide so guests are aware, but will look into making this more evident too. We hope you had a nice time despite the issues raised.

We had a great weekend at Tranquility at Tarawera. The house is spacious and clean, the kitchen has a good range of equipment, the kayaks were fun to use, and the surrounding trees and birds (including a large friendly kereru) were beautiful. Thank you to the owner who allowed us to stay, last minute, after our booked house became unavailable.
