“Wonderful vacation home with an awesome view”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband, son and I had the most wonderful time in this beautiful home. Carey and David are excellent hosts and made us feel welcome and warm right from the start.
The house is very comfortable, spacious and clean. The kitchen is big enough to make delicious meals. Even though we came in winter and it was often cold and rainy the house always felt cozy. And then there is the view! How stunning to wake up every morning to a different look of the lake and it's birds.
Our son had a great time in the spacious garden and my husband loved the morning walks through the quiet neighboorhood. We all loved how close it is to shopping and tourist attractions. Thank you again for a delightful stay. We wish we could stay forever :-)

“A fantastic place to stay”

Great location a few minutes out of Rotorua with space for the kids to play. A most amazing view out over Lake Rotorua. Lovely little cottage with very nice furnishings.

A really nice spacious house with a million dollar view. Very private but close to amenities and short drive from the city.

“Fantastic, relaxing location”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed here just after Christmas for 5 nights. The house is a lovely traditional NZ bach which is very clean and comfortable. It is situated in the most beautiful location right on the edge of Lake Rotorua - the covered veranda allows you to sit and watch the lake, swans and clouds or BBQ in any weather. Very relaxing and enjoyable. The very friendly owners, Carey and David, live next door and nothing is too much trouble. The position is close to Rotorua and the surrounding attractions but allows you to stay pretty much in the county which we loved. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and are looking forward to doing so.
