Peaceful Comfy Farm Cottage Handy Town/Action

 Awesome little property. Good size bedrooms bathroom and kitchen. Main living room is small but cosy. All the stuff you need and much more modern than most. But the best bit by far is the location. On a working farm with an amazing stream at the bottom of the property full of trout. Even a beach of sorts. Kids paradise. And only 5 mins to ngongataha and 10 to Rotorua. I'm sure we'll be back again.

Ohiwas' Best Bach,Clean,Cosy & Private.

 Privacy, cleanliness, atmosphere, view. Set on farmland with water views. Loved the pond at the front of our deck with the jumping fish and birdlife. Always something to look at. Loved the woody interior - can imagine it would be lovely in the winter too with the potbelly.
