Description

  • Situated on the slopes of Mt Ngongotaha with expansive views
  • Backs onto a Native Bush Reserve in a semi-rural environment
  • Only ten minutes away from Rotorua CBD - handy to all of Rotorua's attractions

Great location for those who want to have easy access to Rotorua attractions but prefer a semi-rural location-Situated on the slopes of Mt Ngongotaha.

From the large deck the views are across the city to the Whaka Forest (home of well-known mountain bike tracks) and takes in surrounding landscapes - including Mount Tarawera.

The property is set in approximately three quarters of an acre which is being gradually developed into gardens. A very peaceful setting with bush clad Mount Ngongotaha as a backdrop.

The Cottage is a 1960s original with comfortable furnishings.

In addition to the Cottage there is a double garage with an attached sleep out. This is has a double bed and armchairs and is perfect for additional guests or as a place to escape to unwind and read. For those who prefer activity - in the garage there is a table tennis table ready to use.

A portable cot is available for use if required.

The Cottage sits on the east side of Mt Ngongotaha. During the winter months the mountain casts its shadow over the Cottage by mid-afternoon. Nevertheless the Cottage remains warm and cosy with electric heating and a pellet fire. During summer months the Cottage enjoys all day sun.

    The cottage is clean and tidy, in a fantastic location; tucked away up a hillside road about 3 or 4 km from the town centre. The whole house and garden is enclosed with an unobtrusive fence (largely out of sight behind the shrubs) and safe to let my 3yr old outside unattended. The garden and views are breathtaking. The owner clearly takes a pride in it, an rightly so. Great bach. It far exceeded our expectations. Many thanks.

  • The views from the property are breathtaking

    The views from the property are breathtaking. It is about 15 minute drive to Eat Street and other attractions. The choice was between this property and other motels, which are closer to the town center. I would choose this property again as it is a better value and a more pleasant stay away from the smell. Also, check out the restaurant on top of the mountain road from this property- amazing views!
