Unique lakeside bach with easy access to water

 Fantastic location and lovely bach, great having use of kayaks too. We hope to return one day. Highly recommended. 

Tranquil Peaceful Farm Bach Farmstay Rotorua

 This was the perfect place for our family of four, relaxing, well equipped & economic so that we could spend our money exploring the Rotorua area. Not sure when we will be back to the North Island but would definitely recommend to friends & family. Thanks again :) 

Peaceful Comfy Farm Cottage Handy Town & Action

 Great facilities, almost everything that we needed was supplied. Very clean and organised.... nice view of mountains and farm land with access to a private picnic area which was a plus.

Peaceful Comfy Farm Cottage Handy Town & Action

 Our 3-day stay there was so lovely and rewarding, the cottage was very neat and tidy with all the facilities. Our kids really enjoyed the farm set up, walking to the bbq area and the river front. We love to go there once again for a longer stay whenever possible. 

Idyllic Lakefront Location

 Fabulous place to stay, well appointed house with the most amazing setting. Great for families or a group, especially if you have a boat. 

Tui Glen - lakeside bach with stunning views

 Beautiful view of the lake, and a very comfortable cottage with a great deck. Perfect having your own jetty to jump off for summer swims, would definitely stay again!
