Zodiac Bay Lake Retreat

 Clean comfortable beds and nice bathrooms with powerful showers and plenty of hot water. Heated towel rail a huge plus. Hotel quality bedding. 

Zodiac Bay Lake Retreat

 Would highly recommend Zodiac Bay. We had a great time at this prime location. Close enough to attractions and still very peaceful. We had our family with 4 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. The owner was easy to communicate with and very helpful. We will defiantly be back!! 

Bike to the forest and mountain bike trails

 The property is a fabulous place for a stay in Rotorua. Had everything our group required for our mountain biking holiday, plenty of space, very comfy and a nice quiet area. Close to supermarket & takeaways. Possible to ride to the Redwoods & into town but handy if you have a car to save some energy. Good location to use as a base for day trips & easy drive to Lake Taupo. Would definitely recommend and book for another holiday. 

BLACK HOUSE ON THE POINT: NZ's best Holiday House

 An absolutely amazing property! Stunning view and beautiful property - the real wow factor! We had a brilliant time thanks. 

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

 Beautiful big house with everything you could need for a family holiday. Clean and tidy. Nice area with secure fenced garden and parking. Main benefit for us was being able to have the dog there. 

Mountain Bikers Retreat, Self Catering, Redwoods

 Perfect spot for mountain biking. Primo spa pool. Lots of space for everyone to stay.
