 Great house with loads of room inside and out. Location next to Redwoods is superb. We had a great time and would highly recommend to others. 

Paradise Valley Lodge - large country cottage

 Beautiful property set within a serene backdrop in the valley. Had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to an open outdoor living area to enjoy the view and the sun. Super spacious, clean & private place for our family to enjoy the country side of Rotorua however only a few minutes drive from the township. Our family absolutely loved the place! Will definately be back!
