Description

  • Access to golf course and an easy bike ride to Redwoods - top location
  • Quiet, private and safe with an attached garage for bikes and golf clubs
  • Comfortable and warm, home away from home; unlimited wifi

Our cozy three-bedroom house is nestled down a right of way on a tree-lined street in the heart of Rotorua.

There is easy access onto the superb Arikipakapaka Golf Course and I can supply a set of golf clubs (men's or women's) and a trundler if requested. A quick bike ride away is the famous Redwoods Forest with its multitude of walking and biking trails.

Danish Blue is designed to be a home-away-from-home. The name derives from my Danish heritage and collection of Royal Copenhagen plates, not the cheese. However, if you request Danish blue cheese, I am happy to provide it! The house is an original Lockwood and it "talks" to you a little, as do most wooden houses - creaks and groans as the wood expands and contracts. It is an endearing characteristic of Lockwoods along with their warm wooden interiors.

The kitchen is well stocked with modern conveniences and basic foodstuffs. If I'm in town I try to have a loaf of fresh bread baking when you arrive. Top quality linen and towels are all provided. The bookcase is full of books and there is a good supply of board games for wet weather.

There's even a WII (with games) plus a good number of DVDs for kids and adults. We also now have MySky for our guests, with all the movie channels including Rialto, and the sports and kids' channels and Soho.

The ducted gas heater keeps the house lovely and warm in winter and there is plenty of cross ventilation in summer.

There are beds for six people - four singles and one queen. The third bedroom is off the garage and has a ranch slider opening onto a small deck in the back yard. There is a spare rollaway bed in the garage.

Two bathrooms - one with a bath/shower combination and a vanity and the other with shower and vanity. The toilet is separate from the two bathrooms.

The attached single garage with automatic door is a secure place to store your golf clubs and/or mountain bikes. There is also safe off-street parking for two cars.

Special conditions: Our house is in a quiet little enclave with lovely neighbours and we ask that our guests be considerate of those neighbours; i.e. no loud parties or noise after 10 p.m. Smoking outside only please. Using the cleaning service is optional but if you opt to do your own cleaning, it means leaving the house as you found it except for washing the sheets and pillowcases which I will do. I do expect the beds to be re-made with fresh sheets. (These are provided of course).

    The house felt cluttered with little room to put our food and toiletries. The beds were terribly uncomfortable and one bedroom was only accessed through a garage, so not suitable for younger children.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your honest feedback. This is the first time I've been told the beds are uncomfortable even though I have asked friends who stayed there to tell me their honest opinion. I think it must be a personal thing - some like beds soft, some like them firm. I have noted your comment about clutter - again, a fine line between providing lots of staples (and toiletries) for foreign visitors or leaving lots of space; but I have taken note & will try to improve!
