The Space

Welcome To The Cheeky Tui -

Set 5 mins walk from the pristine waters of Lake Tarawera, just 20 mins from Rotorua, The Cheeky Tui is a fully self contained log house in a garden setting. We even provide the free use of Kayaks and bikes to fully enjoy the wonderful surroundings and lake.

For a virtual tour please visit youtube and type in "The Cheeky Tui" or iFvQktNNVM0 in the search field.

Your Accommodation
Your accommodation features 3 bedrooms, sleeping up to 6 people. There are 3 bedrooms; one with a double bed, a twin room & one with a set of bunks.
(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.)

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave oven etc. The dining room opens onto a cobblestoned courtyard with an outdoor eating area with a bbq & brazier. There is also a kent fire & heat pump for winter so is lovely & warm.

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 & housetrained dogs are welcome and there is even room for a boat!

The Fidgety Fantail holiday home,(also owned by us) is located next door making it perfect for 2 families or friends to rent one each. Please see my other listing on Airbnb if you are interested in this option.

  • The Cheeky Tui Holiday cabin is a great holiday house in a great location - 15 minutes from Rotorua and only a few minutes walk from Lake Tarawera. The house is spotlessly clean and the beds all comfortable. We stayed in winter and the fireplace was great for the evenings whilst the heat pump was great for some quick heat in the mornings. The kayaks were only a few minutes walk away down on the lake side and were great to have a paddle around on on the lake. Next to the house is a park with a playground and net for badminton. The backyard has a great deck area with a clean barbeque ready to use. Supplies are only available back at Rotorua so as the hosts suggest stock up on your way out to the house and enjoy dinner at the house. It was great place to stay as a family.

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
