    My family for the UK came to for a visit and we stayed at Parawai. The venue suited all ages, had everything you needed, and was very comfortable and warm . We all had a brilliant time. Would have no hesitation in booking this accommodation again and would recommend it to all my friends.

  • We spent 3 nights here on trip from the USA

    We spent 3 nights here on trip from the USA. The property is a piece of heaven. Beautiful location with picture perfect view of the lake. The house had everything we needed, from a fully stocked kitchen, to amazingly comfortable beds (including electric blankets, to fun activities for everyone, including kayaks, ping pong, dart board, and air hockey. The fire was laid out ready to start on arrival, and Glenda included a box of firewood. We would definitely stay again! Highly recommend.

  • What a lovely and spacious place with well equipped kitchen, very clean...

    What a lovely and spacious place with well equipped kitchen, very clean and neat and the location was superb - just beside the lake! It was warm and cosy at night too, with the heat pump/fireplace going. We loved the beautiful lake view, listening to the lapping of the waves against the shore. It was a very enjoyable stay for our family. Thank you Glenda for the memorable stay.
