  • The cottage was spotless and very well equipped and maintained

    The cottage was spotless and very well equipped and maintained. The grounds were similarly well maintained with lovely gardens. The location, right on the lake, was fantastic with amazing views from the cottage, deck and back garden. It's only a few minutes' drive away from the major Rotorua attractions. We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely go back.

  • Nicara lakeside cottage is absolutely gorgeous

    Nicara lakeside cottage is absolutely gorgeous. It's spacious and well-appointed. Thanks for the provisions, a very welcome touch. All six of us enjoyed our stay, even though the weather was inclement on Sun. . The walk through the redwoods to the Hamurana spring was great, we fully recommend the Rotorua Museum, as it has a great good-value, good food cafe, and the quality of the exhibits and information in there is exceptional. We had such a nice time. Thanks again.
