  • Our tribe of ten stayed over Easter weekend with ages from 18...

    Our tribe of ten stayed over Easter weekend with ages from 18 to 79. It was spacious, comfortable and accommodated for everyone in our group. Beautiful location with a lovely view of the lake, and being able to use the kayaks and relax in the spa just made it that extra bit awesome. We forgot to fill in the visitors book, but would like to thank you Kerry very much for having our family and the two little fur babies. Cheers!

  • Lovely property, location and gardens

    Lovely property, location and gardens. Really enjoyed the spa, extensive movie collection and kayaks! Fantastic to have toiletries supplied along with kitchen essentials. Driveway could be a challenge for larger or lowered vehicles.

  • The property suited our needs and was very close to Rotorua attractions...

    The property suited our needs and was very close to Rotorua attractions and only 10mins to town. The driveway is very steep and may not be suitable for larger boats to go down, saying that there is access to the lake and a boat can tie up at the bottom of the property.
