although the bach is getting a little tired the location and views make up for that - a great place to visit
Rainbow Retreat met our expectations and more. Everything we needed during our stay was available. The beds were super comfortable, the house was warm and the view was priceless! Can't wait to repeat the Lake Tarawera experience again.
Was a beautiful quite spot overlooking the lake. Nice house layout, good areas to accommodate our larger group. Great spot :)
The house had a great view but was quite run down. We didn't want any guests to sleep in the downstairs room as it was very damp. The games room was great with an amazing fire and there was a lot of space for us to spread out. The boys enjoyed the badminton equipment although the $5 charge for each shuttlecock broken was very high given all of the shuttlecocks broke in the first 10 minutes of normal use. Also the tennis court is actually an area of grass which is quite uneven and unkept.
The downstairs room is not used as frequently as the main house & may need airing on arrival and a dehumidifier is provided to assist. The tennis court’s evenness of bounce is perhaps not on par with Wimbledon & this is to be expected given the rather large volcano which can be seen from our amazing view. A fault here really is a fault! The court has a net and fencing. Shuttlecocks are expensive as we replace them often and continue to do this as guests never own up to breaking them, until now
Pool table, big deck, views of the lake
Good comfy batch, had a good weekend in this relaxing spot. Great views!
In need of some TLC, a good airing out and a new sun umbrella. Great garden for kids to run wild and the view of the lake is amazing.
Great spot, sadly up for sale
Great views, activities, and space
A great place for R&R ,We had a very enjoyable time. The weather was good which made it even better, will be back to stay again in the future.
Comfortable property able to accommodate our group easily - fantastic views of Lake Tarawera.
Awesome location. Would like to stay again during the summer months!
Fantastic view. Well equipped with plenty of firewood, DVDs, games, books and kitchenware. Lovely peaceful spot!
Awesome bach, loads of room, two families would enjoy a stay with ease. Loads of things to do and the bar and pool table in the evening made "going out for a drink" easy! A great place to stay in an awesome spot, thanks.
We loved our stay. The house is fantastic for a couple of families.
Very pleasant stay. House perfect for 2 families.
Awesome bach! Has everything you need, in a great location with a fantastic view. We had a fab holiday here - recommended to everyone!
while the decor is nothing to write home about, for a group of people, this property is brilliant. With plenty to do inside and out, and plenty of room to do it in, our team of 7 had a great time. Not too far from town, and a beautiful drive to a home with a view. I'd recommend you take a second look if you need a good holiday home
Great place especially for a bigger group. Having the pool table, dart board, and tennis court were a big hit. Loved hanging out on the deck, cooking the BBQ, taking in the view. Would definitely stay here again.
Great spot to stay! Water was difficult to operate, perhaps need more detailed instructions in case it isn't found in the way it is supposed to be but otherwise we had a lovely time!
We had a wonderful time. The views from the house are spectacular. It was a real bach not a "Too fancy home" It would have been great to have had a bit more time to enjoy the house and the views but we were on a tight schedule. The only issue I would comment on was the gas bottles. All 3 were empty on arrival and it was freezing cold. It would work better if the cleaner filled them each time and you just included it in the price as Rotorua isn't just 5 mins down the road. log burner was great.
This property met our needs well especially having a games room for the teenagers and a lounge for the adults. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try the tennis court but being long grass it looked as though it would be more suited to badminton rather then tennis. A shame the spa doesn't work cos that would be lovely.
Gas heating a problem. Heaters a bit tired and in need of service/replacement. Accomodation had a musty smell which is to be expected when heating with gas and then being closed up for periods of time. Great time and good family spot.
To our prospective guests please disregard the comments made in respect of the gas heating as they are incorrect. Gas heating is NOT a problem. Both heaters have been inspected by a qualified serviceman and were found to be in good working order and do not require either service or replacement.
