Waikuta Lakeside Retreat on Lake Rotorua

 Fabulous location on the lake edge with spa and kayaks - glorious views and very comfortable quality accomodation- extremely well equipped with comfortable beds. You definitely need a car to stay here and it is in a residential area not walkable to restaurants etc. 

Exclusive holiday home

 Private back yard. Each room had its own bath. Good living area.

Coastal/Rural large contemporary holiday house

 Stunning home in wonderful rural surroundings. Beautifully furnished with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday. It was really peaceful, an absolutely amazing place to rest and retreat. We admired the expansive rural views by day and dark starry skies at night beside the outdoor fire. A great house for entertaining and sharing with other families. Would love to stay again sometime! The Rabbit Island Coffee Container at the gate was awesome bonus :)

Whare hoa hoa  Retreat

 Property was beautiful! It has plenty of space. Great for events such as a bridal shower. Would be perfect for family get-togethers. Nice and central, an easy walk to town. Would recommend this place to anyone.
