  • This is a very couple orientated retreat right on the lake -...

    This is a very couple orientated retreat right on the lake - and we really enjoyed our 2 day stopover in Rotorua. It is just far away enough to watch the city lights by the fire over the lake - yet close enough to go out for dinner if you wish. Really lovely all round - thanks again Geraldine.

  • An amazing location

    An amazing location. What a view! We look forward to returning again to this fantastic home away from home. Quiet, well appointed, clean with lots of space. This is incredible value for money.

  • We were totally taken with the house

    We were totally taken with the house. We absolutely loved our stay there. It's in the most beautiful, serene location on the lake side with views out of every front window of the lake and hills beyond. The sunsets were amazing while we were there. After a 2 week cruise the house was just what we needed away from the crowds yet close enough to drive to all the places we wanted to visit then retreat there on an afternoon to relax. It was bigger and better than we thought from the pictures.

  • The bach was full of charm and character with plenty of room

    The bach was full of charm and character with plenty of room. The gardens were lovely and the view across the lake from the front terrace was magnificent.
