The Red Barn is set in lovely quiet rural setting

 The barn is immaculately presented and perfect for three families with its large living areas. Close to everything Rotorua has to offer.

 This property is very well presented and is amongst the best along the Lake front. Everything is provided and at your fingertips. Lake access is excellent and we will be back again.

 Location was perfect, felt like you were miles away but were actually close to Rotorua and amenities. House and garden & setting were fabulous, very nice to have you own private jetty and secluded garden. Spacious house and rooms and ideal for large group or entertaining 

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

 Beautiful setting, gardens manicured to perfection, plenty of room for everyone. Great location as it was central for everyone traveling from around the North Island. A little piece of New Zealand paradise!
