  • Great house in a fantastic location

    Great house in a fantastic location. Being right on the lake was beautiful to wake up to and we were close to all the activities in Rotorua. Especially enjoyed the kayaks on hand. House well appointed with amenities. Beds super comfy and house clean and tidy. Really looking forward to staying there again in the future! Thanks so much!

  • This is in an awesome spot

    This is in an awesome spot. Nice and warm with a beautiful outlook across the lake and cute private beach. All facilities that you'd need. Lovely living space with bedrooms all good too, and bathrooms a bit more dated but perfectly fine. Thanks guys this was a cool spot to explore Rotorua from

  • Amazing

    Amazing. We loved our private beach. Loved the view from the deck over a wine and all had a canoe and a swim. All the beds were comfy and the kitchen was well appointed and very modern. We had everything we wanted and spent more time just "at home" than planned.

  • The views from the Pourakau Bay house were utterly amazing

    The views from the Pourakau Bay house were utterly amazing. And one night the moon rose across the water like a golden galleon. The house is perfectly located, less than 5 minutes from Tutanekai St. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The tv has a good range of channels. Great clothes washing facilities.  Outside is generous with the roses over the garage smelling wonderful. We have recommended this place to all our friends.

  • Simply amazing

    Simply amazing. The house is just beside the lake, and all amenities are just nearby. The kids love the kayaks and swans on the lake. Have a good camera handy for great morning and evening shots of the lake. Highly recommended stay in Rotorua.
