“This is the typical Kiwi bach in the bush, good access, spacious for a large family - bedrooms, living areas, kitchen:, great views, close to the lake and was easy to warm with the log fire Is complete with bach smells, noises - birds and pump and judicious use of space.”
The teenagers loved the pool table- John, April 2021
“Nice basic no fuss house for a group.”
We had bad experience with bed bugs and a leaky water pump kicking in all night but Bachcare indicate they will address both with urgency. We stayed previously without these issues.- Brenda, April 2021
Thank you for your review and for staying at Family Fun at The Lake again. As discussed privately we are pleased that no bed bugs were found, through with the recent rainfall in the area it did result in an increase of mosquitoes at the time. We have checked the property to make sure everything is in working order. We hope we can welcome you back to Lake Tarawera again. Bachcare
