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! 

Paradise Valley Lodge - large country cottage

 We had a family reunion of 19 people ranging in ages from 12 through people in their 50s. The layout of the main lodge and external rooms worked really well for all families. We all enjoyed the beautiful grounds and well maintained property. It was our piece of paradise for 3 days.
