Holiday Rental House
The Blue Cottage is absolutely on the lakefront with the city centre only 10 minutes away. You’ll love my place because of the neighbourhood, the comfy bed, the kitchen, the cosy and the quirky retro-ness of it. My place is good for couples, friends on holidays, business travellers, and families (with kids). Brand new lake style living, large doors open to a large deck with the lake at your fingertips, Sleep out bedroom for 3rd room peace and privacy for the Grandies or teens, a space for everyone! 10 minutes from Rotorua City with all the pleasures of lake life with no sulphur fumes or a racy day to day pace. Blue Cottage has 2 cosy bedrooms in the cottage with a 3rd bedroom/sleep out with brand new comfy beds - electric blankets if the nights turn chilly. A great style of furniture...The Blue Cottage is absolutely on the lakefront with the city centre only 10 minutes away.

Blue Cottage has 2 cosy bedrooms in the cottage with a 3rd bedroom/sleep out with brand new comfy beds - electric blankets if the nights turn chilly. A great style of furniture choices throughout - chunky and well made no impractical flimsy flat packs here. A prime location, quiet and calm in both the day and night. Direct access and sweeping views of the lake from the cottage and the deck. Plenty of parking on the property- Huge space for a boat or a few boats with the boat ramp 3 minutes away. WiFi TV/Freeview Bluetooth Radio and Ipod dock Kayaks and Life Jackets BBQ and all the tools Fireplace with a bag of wood supplied Children's Toys, Portacot, High Chair, paddle pool available. Linen Included Compulsory $50.00 cleaning charge applies. A double sofa can accommodate 1 or 2 more on request. Noisy parties and noisy people discouraged, Traveller's our specialty... Quiet, peaceful and refined people - Welcome! Guest access The whole property is for your exclusive use and enjoyment. The Sleep out/ 3 bedroom is an option and prepared on request. There's plenty of space for 2, a little less space for 4, 5 is starting to be squeezy and a sleep out for sleeping takes the total to 7 with the sofa for another 2 which is why a maximum of 6 Adults is our top of the tops, oh and only 1 bathroom to share too. The sofa and top bunk can easily fit a little person but no more than 6 Adults per booking please! A property Manager is available at all times by phone, sms, messaging or any other method during your stay. Recommendations, suggestions, directions and all help with boutique holiday planning included and to your wishes. A personal welcome or visit from the Property Manager during your stay is at your leisure and invitation only, it is your holiday after all, Your holiday - your terms! This is a quiet residential location, while you have loads of privacy you'll never be isolated or lonely. Getting around There is ample parking on the property, even for larger vehicles, boats, jet skis and more, there isn't garage or undercover parking. The best advice would be you will do much better with your own transport, there is reliable public transport to the city although to make the most of the nearby attractions and there are far too many to list a car is the best way or bike, the national cycle trail and 8km bike ride into the centre of Rotorua is 2 minutes distance away. Other things to note There are a few steps into the Cottage and a single step into the Sleep out. If the little ones have their running legs on around this huge section you'll get a great workout. Breakfast is not provided - please bring your groceries with you. Coffee, Tea and Sugar included at no charge. House Rules No smoking Not suitable for pets No parties or events Check-in time is 2 - 10 in the afternoon/evening More

Cannot fault this location at all - idyllic, and we loved living by the lake. We also learnt (the hard way) all about Trout Flies. If you leave the door or window open and a light on, literally thousands of them will come to visit....More

Very good fully equipped cottage right on the edge of the lake. About 15 mins drive from the centre of Rotorua. Very quiet, with great view from the porch. The kajaks that can be used by guests are a great bonus. And the BBQ is...More
