  • A perfect property in a perfect location

    A perfect property in a perfect location. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend away. Thank you so much - we really enjoyed using the dingy, played lots of games of scrabble and frisbee plus it was a nice stroll to the cafe too. We told our 3 kids that there was no WiFi so we feel we really had some quality time together. Thanks again.

  • A beautiful house in a brilliant location

    A beautiful house in a brilliant location. Not far from either Rotorua or Whakatane but out of the usual tourist hubbub. Lovely place to relax with a lake view from the verandah. A fairly busy road in front but this is outweighed by the comfort and amenities of the house.

    The house is lovely and unique with all the beautiful art work and poetry and on a lake that is the jewel of the area. It's also well set up for kids and pets with good fencing. HIghly recommended
