    Really enjoyed our stay here, was a home away from home with everything supplied and the kids loved having toys, books and games to play with. Clean and well-presented. The fire did a great job of warming the house quickly, only concern was the fire guard was inadequate with young children around as it didn't fully surround the fireplace and was easily knocked over. Great location, nice and quiet with a lovely outlook and an easy drive to the attractions of Rotorua.

    The house was perfect for us and a very short walk down to the lake. Everything we needed was there and the kids toys and games were so great in the wet weather. Really appreciated having the fire all ready to go and just needed to light the match when we walked in :-)
