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 - the perfect spot for MTB and forest enthusiasts. 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.

    a great location so close to the redwoods and overall a very pleasant and comfortable house. really appreciated that it was cleaner than most holiday houses. nicely setup with what you need, a dishwasher would be nice but we weren't really cooking much anyway. well stocked with the basics so you don't have to bring everything like soap, shampoo, tea/coffee, oil etc - really appreciated. bed was reasonable - not great but good enough although the pillows were a bit soft for my liking.

    The property was excellent and contained everything our family needed for our week in Rotorua. Located basically in the redwoods was perfect for our riding, running, and hiking exploits.
