Old-school glamour meets location, location, location at The Lakeview Chalet!

This sunny 4-bedroom home with Wi-Fi sits just minutes from the edge of Lake Tarawera and boasts wondrous views. It also has a games room that is perfect for rainy days.

You can feel the love poured into this barn style home, which has been stylishly revamped and modernised. From the polished wood and high ceilings to the colour pops of teal and bottle green throughout, The Lakeview Chalet is a magical find.

Enjoy a morning coffee on the sun-dappled deck, before cooking up a classic Kiwi big brekkie to enjoy at the breakfast bar. With fuel for the day ahead, Lake Tarawera and the local sights are calling!

The Lakeview Chalet sits down a private driveway with a sunny deck and large lawn - plenty of room to play and soak up the sun. Perfect for families, bring the boat along and park onsite, and furry friends are welcome too!

Take your dog to nearby Stoney Point Reserve and Rangiuru Bay, and try fishing for a famous Lake Tarawera rainbow trout to cook on the BBQ!

At the end of the day, delight in old-school glamour with a soak in the claw foot bath; while gazing out the stained glass window towards picturesque lake and mountain views.

Make your next trip to Lake Tarawera something special at The Lakeview Chalet.

This house is in a great location and well setup for a large family group with plenty of space. Its a short walk down to the boat ramp and beach. The kitchen caters well for a lot of people as we celebrated my mother's 80th birthday and it was excellent for this. Thank you

We loved staying in this bach. It easily accommodated 2 families, we loved the spacious house and the games room, and the large lawn was a bonus for easy parking, as we had 2 boats.

Awesome place to stay with friends and family, and lovely to have a dog friendly place with a fenced off area out the back - hard to find! Lots of space, plenty of games etc. for the kids, great living area, heaps of kitchen amenities, close to the lake, everything we could have asked for. Thanks for a great stay.

Great house to rent for families with kids, the games room is awesome! main bedroom on a messanze floor so no sleep in if your kids are early risers! Expensive for non waterfront, but well equipped, comfortable beds, very clean and accommodating bach mangers. Thanks!

Great location, lots of room for family and friends, easy access to the lake and lots of room outside to park the boat and for the kids to play. sit in the evening sun and BBQ the evening away.

Stayed October 2019

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely place! The house is as pictured and catered well to our needs. The house contained many necessities that made our stay much easier and the surrounding nature around this place is beautiful, we didn’t want to leave! The route towards the house has captivating views which makes the stay more exciting & words can’t describe how great of a stay it was at this beautiful place! Only negative is the lack of service you get but the views and peace you get from this stay makes up for it and also the fast Wifi connection. All in all, 10/10 accommodation!

Hi Amelia, it sounds like you had a fantastic stay. The property is located in a more rural location so unfortunately, mobile reception isn't the greatest in that area but we have updated the listing to advise future guests. We look forward to welcoming you again!

Stayed September 2019

A very Well equipped family friendly warm cozy house with amazing views, plenty of room with open plan living and a great lawn and proximity to town!! We loved the rural sheep paddocks out the back and lake views out the front!! Highly recommend!!

Stayed May 2019

This is a great house with a comfortable living area and plenty of modern amenities. You don't have the clearest view of the lake (it's across the road, behind other houses) but you can see Mt Tarawera from the living room. We were disappointed that the pizza oven advertised is not a permanent clay oven but a small mobile oven. Otherwise, we had a lovely stay and enjoyed the modern kitchen and cosy fireplace.

Bachcare replied

We're glad you had a great stay Petrina and that you enjoyed the property. Our Holiday Managers have clarified that while it's not a traditional stone pizza oven, it is wood fired and very good quality, and that it makes delicious pizzas! We hope to welcome you back again some time!

Stayed March 2019

Great property! Perfect location and ample space indoor and outdoor. This was probably one of the most equipped properties we have ever stayed in - you will over pack like we did! Loved our stay, definitely recommend!
