Lakefront, Lawn to lake and jetty

 wonderful bach, right onto safe, shallow part of Lake Rotorua and children loved using kayacks and digging in sand on shore. amazing view every morning and really good facilities. very clean and restful, we didin't want to leave and if we didn't live so far away, in the UK we would come back again and again. 

Lake edge luxury at The Willows, Lake Rotorua

 We enjoy our stay at Kerry's House. House is beautiful and spacious. The garden is fabulous. The house is very well located : by the lake, nice & peacefull neighborhood, near maori village, amusement parc, fast-food... Kayaks, DVDs, Spas and more were much appreciated. We mainly enjoy kerry for his kindness. For French : N'hésitez pas ça vaut vraiment le coup ! Un endroit fabuleux pour toute la famille de 7 à 77 ans ! 

Relax On The Lakefront

 This is a lovely waterfront property, we had loads of fun, the owner is friendly and helpful, very happy to recommend to others!!! 

Ngongotaha Cottage, Rotorua

 This was our second stay at the Cottage and always a great experience. The cottage is very well presented and provided everything we needed for a comfortable weekend. Close enough to town and quiet location. Our family lab enjoyed the nearby Elliot Reserve off lead area. Highly recommended. 

Bureta Beauty / Prime location / Modern with views

 The location was ideal for our stay with 2 lots of shops, a Countdown supermarket and the local golf course all within very easy walking distance. The area was quiet and the house felt very private. The house has been renovated to a high standard and has a fantastic covered deck area where we spent a lot of time. We found reading through the clear file that contained information about the house and area very helpful. 

Comfort and Quality on Rotorua's Golden Mile

 Fantastic place for a group of adults to stay. Everything we needed and plenty of space to spread ourselves out. Walking distance to Supermarkets and not really that further on into the city centre. Very considerate to leave us eggs, bread and milk. Had wonderful sleeps in great beds!
