Located just metres from Lake Rotorua in Ngongotaha. As a holiday destination you would have a hard time finding such a peaceful and convenient spot.

• It’s sunny, has lovely views and is just a few minutes stroll to the boat ramp or jetty. A great boat fishing, kayaking or fly fishing area.

The cottage features a large sunny patio and deck and is situated on a big section filled with colourful gardens. It has everything you could possibly need for a getaway. It’s fully furnished. It has a large modern and functional kitchen with an oven, a stove, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. With a heat pump and spa bath to keep you cosy and warm in the winter, and a BBQ and patio/deck to enjoy in the summer, this cottage will cover all the bases. To top it all off it’s very close to Rotorua’s top attractions including Skyline Skyrides, The Agrodome, Mamaku Blue, Wingspan, The Zorb/Ogo, and much more. Most of these attractions are just a five minute drive down the road and if you want to head into the central city to get a bite to eat at Rotorua’s newest hub, Eat Street, it’s only a 10 minute drive.

If you’re undecided about what to do in the area, the owners live on the section and are more than happy to give you the rundown of great places to go and help with anything you may need during your stay,

The large section that’s fully fenced also has plenty of room for parking a boat if you’re itching to get out on the water, For all the keen fishermen and women, the Ngongotaha stream is famous for its fly fishing at the stream mouth and that’s also just a few minutes away. Ngongotaha Village, which has a 4Square, cafes, takeaway shops, bakeries and a post shop is also a short walk away. For those sporty types, there’s secure storage space for bikes and other sports equipment so you can hit those mountain bike tracks Rotorua is famous for. So come and experience the peaceful setting of Rita’s Cottage, close to all the fun-filled, adrenaline-pumping, activities.

  • Lovely place

    Lovely place. We had a very pleasant stay. Cottage is with all amenities, comfortable beds, spacious rooms and everything is there for a wonderful stay and close to so many tourist attractions. Each room is designed with beautiful paintings. The cottage is in a beautiful location surrounded by so many plants and we could see many birds every morning. Hosts were welcoming and very friendly. Highly recommended.
