Mountain Bikers Retreat, Self Catering, Redwoods

 The location was perfect for what my family and I were there for, for that weekend. I loved that there was a pool and spa and space around the side/ back of the house for the kids to run around and be entertained. Games room in the garage was awesome for the adults for us to just chill and have fun. Beautiful view from up on the hill, I recommend to anyone who is wanting to get away to a nice quiet scenic place, wither with friends and or family, this is the perfect place.

Rose Lake Retreat, Rotorua **WiFi Free**

 What a wonderful property! So spacious and easily accommodated our requirements as stayed here with 6 adults. A lovely location overlooking the lake and nice and quiet. Very relaxing! The spa was a definite bonus and so nice to unwind in at the end of the day. Would recommend to all!
