This unique lakeside retreat is at one of Rotorua's most exclusive addresses, and is nestled in an established garden setting with panoramic views over Lake Rotorua to Mokoia Island and Mt Tarawera.
Private and sheltered from the prevailing winds and away from the bustle of suburbia, this property has become a favoured lodge for national and international travellers, who love its peace and tranquillity. It is far enough away from everyday life to provide privacy, yet is close enough to be only a few minutes from the Rotorua International Airport or the many outstanding attractions of this unique thermal city.
The lodge offers a variety of luxury accommodation and all ten suites face towards the magnificent lake views. A private jetty allows access to a number of activities including boating, trout fishing, lake cruising, and even site seeing by float plane or jet boat. The Lake's edge is deep at this point and is excellent for swimming in the summer months or even just trout fishing off the front lawn.
The lodge has achieved a four plus Qual mark star rating, and provides accommodation and breakfast for guests from its well appointed open plan kitchen and dining room. Log fire places, leather furnishings and trout fishing trophies hang from the walls.
The configuration of the lodge’s buildings provides for a number of options for owner/manager's onsite living and guest accommodation. The suites consist of two premium king rooms with spa-bath and ensuites, whilst the family apartment consists of one king room, one twin room, both with ensuites, a kitchen, lounge, dining area, fireplace and private balcony. There are four standard king/twin bedrooms with ensuites and two family suites with en suites. The lodge has a beautifully appointed self-contained manager's accommodation unit with private decks and lake views.
The 3,773 sq m land is freehold and has two separate titles, which would allow for the two dwellings to stand alone should they ever be sold as individual properties. The business has been well established since it was purchased and up-graded, and now has three years of trading to show its potential as a viable business. The lodge industry is growing rapidly in New Zealand and shows promise for increasing profits in the years ahead.
The sale of Koura Lodge presents a rare opportunity for someone to own one of Rotorua’s most unique waterfront properties and successful businesses. For sale are the land and buildings, plus chattels and the business of Koura Lodge.
