Caspers, Central Mount Maunganui

 It was a perfect place, very nicely maintained, close to the beach and lots of great places to eat. With sky TV, BBQ, and the other amenities a perfect getaway. Highly recommended and will definitely plan to go there again. 

Winstone Cottage - charming large lakeside bach

 Water views, boat jetty, hot tub, well appointed kitchen, comfy beds, lovely homely well loved cottage with everything you need and more. Walked round the blue lake, had a picnic at the beach at the end of the garden and fed the ducks.Can't wait to book again and use the kayaks. Super stay. 

Mountain Bikers Retreat, Self Catering, Redwoods

 Fantastic house. Catered for all our needs. Can't wait to go back with mtn bikes next time. Nice and central to all the activities in Rotorua. 

Southstar on Selwyn - large character house

 This place has a skate bowl, basketball hoops, a bmx track! Also, the house is massive, with plenty of room with heaps of beds. We really enjoyed our stay, thanks!
