 Great house to relax in and enjoyed every moment of our stay. House has everything you need to ensure a great holiday. The outside environment is fantastic, multiple places to sit and read a book, look at the view and while away the hours. Beds are comfortable, very important when on holiday. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Especially loved the outside bath. 

Bureta Beauty / Prime location / Modern with views

 The property was fantastic. Clean, tidy and modern throughout. Really comfortable beds. It has a great position as you can have days out north up to Waihi or south down to Papamoa and Whakatane. Property was great for our family as the garden was fully fenced and the beaches and park just down the road was nice and shallow. We will definitely be coming back again. 

Rotorua Family Holiday Home

Water Skiers/Wakeboarders Wonderland

 Wonderful spacious Bach where we could sit on the deck and watch our 4yr old play in the park. Walking distance to lake where we could take a quick tip jumping off the wharf. Wonderful spot - thanks 

The Fidgety Fantail Holiday Cottage, Lake Tarawera

 The fidgety fantail was a tidy well appointed batch in a serene location. Plenty of sleeping options and awesome outdoors shower. Great having meals out on the deck. Great being so close to Lake Tarawera.
