Chalet Near The Lake - Lake Okareka

 It was an awesome place to stay with a large family group heaps of room! 

Chalet Near The Lake - Lake Okareka

 Secluded and quiet. reasonably close to the lake. Driveway access is a little difficult if you have a boat/trailer. We parked our boat next door at the hall carpark, would have been good if we were able to unlock the gate to the carpark to access/unload equipment/stuff in the boat.

The Red Barn is set in lovely quiet rural setting

 This is the best place to stay in the whole of New Zealand. We were a group of nine and every single one of us would stay again, but definitely for longer next time so we actually have time to enjoy the amazing space and facilities. AWESOME! 

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.
