  • Rooms were nice and clean

    Rooms were nice and clean. Good spot if you are planning on sight seeing around Rotorua as it is relatively close to everything (like the wild life park, wingspan, skyline and the thermal parks).

  • As a couple, we enjoyed the quiet location, with basic items available

    As a couple, we enjoyed the quiet location, with basic items available. Some TLC to update the inside would brighten the space and take away the lingering "musty smell". We found this bach a bit pricey @ $120pn, in comparison to our last bach which offered quite a bit more for $80 difference (Modern Opononi bach - $200pn open plan living, modern kitchen, 3bdrms, 2 bthrms and ensuite in main bedroom, large verandah, garage, washing machine and dryer, BBQ and heaps more.

    Bach was a great little room and pretty much as advertised, but with a few little niggles: Very close to owner's house; washing machine, pool table and spa were use of owner's facilities; no private outdoor area. However, wifi coverage was great and the bach was sufficient and comfortable.
