  • Waikuta is a lovely well presented property in a beautiful location

    Waikuta is a lovely well presented property in a beautiful location. Exactly as the photos show. Beds very comfortable. Good bathrooms and showers. We enjoyed the location in Ngongataha. Not far from Rotorua and close to the Gondalas. Our group loved the cycleway into Rotorua and on to the Redwood forest. We would definitely love to return.

  • A lovely big home, handy to local attractions

    A lovely big home, handy to local attractions. It was lovely having a spa in the evenings looking out over the lake and the kids made plenty of use of the kyaks. We really enjoyed our stay!!
