  • We loved our stay and hope to be back

    We loved our stay and hope to be back. Remote and relaxing but at the same time not too far from Rotorua. The house is warm and comfortable and offers plenty of space. Kayaking on the lake in the morning and star watching from the Spa night. Just a beautiful spot.

  • Location of the property is secluded which was just what we wanted...

    Location of the property is secluded which was just what we wanted for a 30th Birthday celebration! 8 adults stayed here and we all absolutely loved it!!! It's perfect! Big enough to have us all without feeling on top of each other. The views are amazing, the deck area is just beautiful, especially first thing in the morning eating breakfast listening to nature, bliss. Loved the Contessa wood burner sat on a bean bag drinking wine. The slide into the lake was a winner, too many laughter on that!
