 Our stay at Shearer's Retreat was a highlight of our trip to New Zealand and a great base for exploring all that Rotorua has to offer. This spacious, well-equipped, comfortable, vintage bach was a special place for our family - we loved being surrounded by beautiful farmland, feeding the chickens and Windy the horse, toasting marshmallows and stargazing. Happy memories made here! We feel so lucky to have experienced the very best of Kiwi hospitality and recommend it thoroughly.
