  • 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.

  • We loved our stay here

    We loved our stay here. It was so cosy and nice and warm for winter. We would love to come back in summer and make the most of the beautiful yard and deck.

  • We loved staying at this place

    We loved staying at this place. The views were fantastic and it was so relaxing and peaceful. The beds were very comfortable, the house was warm and cosy and there was everything that we could possibly have needed. The location was also great, it was quiet and town was only a short ride away. We would definately like to stay there again sometime in the future.

  • Very clean with good amenities and a great view

    Very clean with good amenities and a great view. Only downside.... Very cold in winter but you get a fireplace and several heaters plus electric blankets on beds. If you hate cold it's not for you otherwise great place to stay.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your comments. You were certainly in Rotorua during a cold snap - much colder than Western Aussie. Of note, the Cottage is fully insulated (no double glazed windows however) - and has enough heaters and a wood pellet fire to keep the Cottage nice and warm.
