  • Wow

    Wow. This property is in the most fabulous location. It’s like a National Trust parkland all to yourself. The house is gorgeous too and has everything you need. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Mandy!

  • Beautiful place, very relaxing

    Beautiful place, very relaxing. We enjoyed the kayaking and bush walks, lovely views and privacy. Access to WiFi would've been ideal, as there's very little reception there, but all in all it was great. Many thanks!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Rototaha Lodge

    We had a wonderful stay at Rototaha Lodge. It was isolated enough that we felt that we were away from it all - but close enough to Rotorua for day trips. We didn't turn on a computer or watch the TV for 4 nights - the birdsong and each other were company enough. We would highly recommend this property for anyone needing to recharge their batteries (we loved that we could bring the family dog too).
