    “We stayed with my husband in this Bach in August.”

    As soon as we entered the house, we were amazed at how much smaller it was compare to how it looks on the photos. I want to objectively describe the pros and cons of this Bach, because I myself do not like surprises when the price is quite high. Pros: 1. Definitely a great view. Wherever you are in the house, you have a stunning view of Lake Tarawera everywhere. 2. Peace and quiet. The house stands along the road, but cars pass very rarely and you can't hear them. 3.

    As soon as we entered the house, we were amazed at how much smaller it was compare to how it looks on the photos. I want to objectively describe the pros and cons of this Bach, because I myself do not like surprises when the price is quite high. Pros: 1. Definitely a great view. Wherever you are in the house, you have a stunning view of Lake Tarawera everywhere. 2. Peace and quiet. The house stands along the road, but cars pass very rarely and you can't hear them. 3. Fireplace - this turned out to be the only saver on cold days. We had a hitpump working all the time, but it was not enough to heat a fairly cold house. One night it just turned off because the temperature was below zero. 4. Comfortable beds. 5. Renovated bathroom on the second floor (the bathroom on the first floor was quite old so we did not use it). Cons : 1. The house is still small and needs to be renovated. There is a slightly unpleasant smell that you get used to. 2. I think it is quite sufficient for 4 people, but no more. 3. Old cabinets in the kitchen were difficult to open. 4. Weak pressure in the shower. You can freeze while taking shower. 5. Sockets on the second floor can withstand only one heater, but it is not enough. 6. In fact, there are only two rooms. The third zone is a hallway. 7. If you come with more than two cars or a boat, make sure to think about where to park. We were looking for a quiet place with a view and a fireplace - this Bach had it all. We would definitely love to spend our three days off in this secluded piece of paradise again. Thanks to the owners for giving us this opportunity.

The property

Smoked Trout is a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom Lake Tarawera bach. Enjoy a comfortable stay in this older style bach located in peaceful surrounds and boasting magnificent views of Lake Tarawera! This Lake Tarawera bach is a comfortably furnished two level home. On the upper level there is a lounge and two bedrooms, one with a king bed and one with two bunks plus a trundler bed (the double bedroom is accessed via the bunk room) and a bathroom. Outside, there is a big deck perfect for soaking up some sun and getting stuck into a good book. Lake Tarawera has pristine water quality and is well known for its excellent trout fishing. This bach is ideal for kicking back and letting life slow right down. Blue Lake and Lake Okareka are nearby and perfect for all boating activity - particularly water skiing and biscuiting! Take out the single kayak (lifejackets included) for a great day in the water and sun! Or simply chill-out at the house and enjoy an extensive collection of books and board games! Across the lake is the outlet, where the walkway follows what is commonly known as the disappearing stream. Walk further down the track and you descend down a cliff face, and once at the bottom you can look back and see the disappearing stream re-appear. This cliff face has a waterfall. Smoked Trout is also close to the famous buried village, a fascinating day trip to add to your itinerary. Welcome to a piece of paradise at Lake Tarawera!

All guests should take extra care on the deck as there is no barrier to prevent falls.

Steps leading to second floor are quite steep but there is a handrail in place.

Please note that there is limited mobile phone reception at this property due to the remote location.

Please note that there is no wifi available at this property.

There are a variety of lifejackets in different sizes available for guest use with the kayak

Ample boat parking at top of steep driveway although not suitable for a large boat.

"Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking."
