Rest & Relax @ Lake Okareka - stylish + modern

 If you have 4 or less travellers and look for a perfect stay in Rotorua, look no further than batch on benn. We really enjoy the stay. A really awesome location, Renovated throughout, and really great hosts. We will be back. 

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. 

Tui Glen - lakeside bach with stunning views

 Fantastic location, comfortable and clean bach with such an amazing view... We had a lovely relaxing time in this bach, mainly just reading and taking in the view... it was a little bit chilly to take the kayak's out but definitely next time! 

Rest & Relax @ Lake Okareka - stylish + modern

 Beautiful property just a few meters from Okareka Lake. Very clean and modern inside with a fully equipped kitchen for our evening meals. We borrowed the Canadian Canoe, and spent a good three hours on the lake and was one of my highlights of the trip. excellent experience! 

Lake Rotoiti - Holidays, fishing, relaxing

 One of the best baches we've stayed in, great value for money, Very well equipped, clean and tidy throughout. Would certainly return. Owners very nice to deal with too. Thank you.
