64 On Oturoa is a small operating farmlet. You will drive along our avenue of beautiful old trees which change dramatically through the seasons. The driveway is bounded either side by paddocks with sheep, our miniature horse Bess and our free ranging colourful chickens. The nearby village of Ngongotaha offers café, grocery, chemist, doctors, liquor outlets, post office with bookstore and lotto. Rotorua city centre is a pleasant 10km drive with many of the local attractions on the way. You might like to stop off at the Agrodome, Zorb or the Big Splash or Luge. Fishing options are abundant in our area with the boat ramp at Ngongotaha and Hamurana just a short drive away.

    Visiting Rotorua ? Consider 64 on Oturoa as we did for Labour Weekend which is away from the public and next to other farms on a rural road within 15 mins drive to NZ coolest hot spots. This is a fantastic cottage that Fiona and Don own, with ample space for a couple and two kids. Think of it as a home away from home. Peaceful with views of deer and bunny rabbits from the windows. Big kitchen with cooking facilities and lots of extras . Comfy beds, and a big bathroom, we had a wonderful stay.

  • What a beautiful home you two have

    What a beautiful home you two have. Loved the free range eggs and home made baking- was a wonderful surprise! Enjoyed the homely feeling and absolutely loved the being in the countryside! Would love to own a home like this one day! Thank you so much for having us. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and stay in your lovely home.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your kind comments. Had we realised you had eggs still in the fridge would have given you a container to take them home with you. Keep us in mind when you're ready to purchase, we might just be ready to move by then. Welcome back anytime.
