WAITETI LODGE - Lake Rotorua & Waiteti Stream

 This is an amazing place to stay. We stayed as an extended family group of 12 and there was plenty of space for everyone with six bedrooms, six bathrooms and dining facilities for 12. Amazing garden too. Wifi was a real bonus as we had overseas guests with us. Loved the setting next to the stream and looking out over the lake. It has a slightly old fashioned but very comfortable feel to it. Plenty of space for everyone to hang out and do their own thing. Would agree previous comments re oven. 

Beachfront, brand new, big views, north end.

 Couldn't have asked for a better location.....

Amazing golf course views in a quiet cul-de-sac

 The location was lovely - quiet and peaceful with lovely views over the Golf Course. Easy walk to the local shops and Rotorua CBD just a short drive away. An easy cycle to the MTB park, which has a lot to offer for all levels of riders. The property had plenty of room for vehicles to park and plenty of room inside for all of us. The deck is a very pleasant place to sit also. 

Papamoa Beachfront Beauty

 The beach location couldn't have been better. The house was perfect for our two families with teenagers. They had fun with the kayaks, bogeyboards and table tennis. There was plenty of space and beds for all. Thanks for sharing your beach home!
