Ngongotaha Cottage, Rotorua

 The location is great, in very peaceful neighborhood, and just a few minutes drive away from Rotorua city centre. The Cottage was clean, warm, well thought-out and very well kept. We enjoyed our stay very much.

HOBSON CHALET DELIGHT private sunny lovely views

 We loved our stay at the this home! Clean, quiet and private and having the car was a total bonus! Will definitely book again. 

HOBSON CHALET DELIGHT private sunny lovely views

 Great location, set in the bush at Onetangi & not too far from the lovely Onetangi beach. The house is comfortable & has all that is needed for a great stay. Not having to bring any linen (sheets or towels) was a bonus as was having access to the Honda CRV. The steep drive would be a challenge for less competent drivers, especially in the wet. Overall an excellent place to stay, thanks for the opportunity
