The Space

Welcome To The Fidgety Fantail -

Set 5 mins walk from the pristine waters of Lake Tarawera, just 20 mins from Rotorua, The Fidgety Fantail is a fully self contained log house in a garden setting.

For a virtual tour of the house and Lake Tarawera please search "Fidgety Fantail" in youtube.

Your Accommodation
Your accommodation features 2 bedrooms inside the main cabin, plus 2 sleepouts close to the house. One sleepout has a double bed and the other a set of bunks. There is also a cute semi outside bathroom between the sleepouts.
(Just a quick note when looking at the pricing - the total cleaning fee is made up of a $30 cleaning fee plus $15 per person per stay for linen and towels. Currently this defaults to 6 people but if there are less than 6 staying, we will adjust this charge accordingly for you.)

There are plenty of places to relax and there is also a verandah, large deck & carport in a garden setting. Mature fruit trees, grape vines, feijoas, rasberries are throughout the property.

Kayaks & bikes are supplied supplied and there is also a heat pump for winter. There is even room for a boat!

If you have children a portacot is available, along with plenty of board games, lego, cricket set etc to keep them entertained. The property has a large fenced area for safety for children (& dogs)

Located next to a reserve (which has a new playground) & close to boat ramp and a good swimming beach, this is the perfect location for your next family holiday. Well behaved & house-trained dogs welcome!

The Cheeky Tui holiday home right next door is also owned by us, making it ideal for 2 families who are friends to rent one each. Please see my other listing on Airbnb if you are interested in this option.

  • Martin and Caroline was awesome by having everything prepared for our arrival. It was not difficult to find the place and aal the instructions are clear. But what a magnificent and beautuful surroundings we found our selfs. A great place to stay for the larger families. Very clean and well finished cabins/batches, very warm for winter stays. We will go there again , we needed more time to do more activities such as kayaking, tramping etc.

Hi Everyone, I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce ourselves. My Wife Caroline and I are originally from the UK and were first introduced to the pristine area around Lake Tarawera when we visited New Zealand in 1999. Now, many years later, we live in Auckland and along with our two little boys, Andrew and Michael, it’s wonderful to have our own spot by he lake to visit and enjoy with our children, friends and family! It would be wonderful to be able to share our slice of paradise with you - we also have another cabin next door called the Cheeky Tui for extended groups of travellers. Kind regards, Martin, Caroline, Andrew and Mikey
