  • Great value farmstay, a short drive from the Rotorua town centre

    Great value farmstay, a short drive from the Rotorua town centre. Beautiful sunsets & lovely birdsong. We stayed comfortably 2 nights with 2 adults & 2 kids (10 & 8). Thank you for the fresh eggs! ??

    The property was well equipped with everything we needed to amuse the grandaughter and look after her needs. In fact it exceeded our expectations. The surroundings were quiet and peaceful. It was good to be in a rural situation. The lounge was very comfortable for relaxing in the evenings. Easy access to local amenities (by car) including Rotorua town. Instructions for cleaning were clear and easy to follow and all necessary equipment was provided.

  • Cosy, tidy, warm, well appointed, clean and great feel about it

    Cosy, tidy, warm, well appointed, clean and great feel about it. Very comfortable excellent double bed! Good selection toys and books. Just be aware that the kids room is the link between living room, kitchen and master bedroom. Had bit of fun climbing through internal windows from main room to living room once light sleeping toddler was in bed ;-) Otherwise very nice, would have loved to stay longer.
