Your private holiday space that's close to it all!

A Stone's Throw is near many of the diverse attractions that make Rotorua a special and popular place to visit - and we're right by the infamous Redwoods in the Whakarewarewa Forest. Less than five minutes drive away and you could be visiting Te Puia for the thermal and geysers as well as Maori culture, art and craft. Or you could be boarding a float plane at the main lake front to enjoy a scenic aerial view of our sixteen lakes and stunning landscape. Perhaps, after a visit to our popular museum, you could be enjoying a soak in the internationally renowned Polynesian Spa - lovely!

While we're right by the Redwoods, it's just a short drive to the Waipa Bike Park for those wanting entry into the Waipa end of the Forest.

Just up and over the hill and you're into our popular lakes district - Lake Okareka, Lake Tarawera and the Blue and Green Lakes - for lake cruises, natural hot springs, trout fishing, horse riding, nature walks, historic sites and more!

With so much activity on your doorstep, you can enjoy your own personal space - a peaceful place to relax and unwind - at A Stone's Throw.

  • Stones throw is a great place to stay

    Stones throw is a great place to stay. It is handy but so peaceful. We felt very welcome. We were there for christmas and arrived to find treats of chocolates, wine, cherries. home made shortbread and christmas crackers. If you are going to Rotorua highly recommend you stay here it has everything you need and is much nicer than a hotel.

    The property is IMMACULATE and really feels like a home away from home. Teresa and Sean have thought of everything. They were also very generous and the house is really well stocked with extras like rubbish bags, toilet paper, soaps, face washers, condiments, milk and lovely surprise treats like chocolates and little cookies. Plus we were literally a stones throw from the Redwoods. We loved this bach and hope we get to visit again someday thank you for having us guys :-)
