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

 We had 2 families with 4 young kids each and they never ran out of things to do. Plenty of room for them to disappear from us adults but still be in a very safe environment. The location and scenery is beautiful and the house was big so we could spread out and presented to the highest standard. Our overseas guests were taken back with everything this place had to offer and it made us proud to be kiwis and showcasing our country. Thanks again for allowing us to stay at your property. 

FABULOUS FARMSTAY ON THE LAKE

 The location is great close to three lakes for boating walking and only 15 minutes to town and other attractions around Rotorua. The only complant we had was the light in the toilet needs replacing.

FABULOUS FARMSTAY ON THE LAKE

 Great place for our friends to stay for our amazing wedding! They all said they loved the place & would stay again. It was a short walk down the drive way to our wedding venue so the perfect place to stay. Close to the surrounding lakes, bush walks and other fun activities. No cell phone reception means peace & quiet away from the normal pace of life!
