Our cottage, on the Western shores of Lake Rotorua, is only 8kms from Rotorua City and it's attractions, yet far enough away not to suffer its sulphur fumes. An acre of park like grounds provides plenty of off road secure parking, and plenty of space for children to play. A safe sandy beach, kayaks, dinghies and fishing tackle make this an ideal holiday retreat. The cottage is spacious, well equiped and comfortable. It has two modern bathrooms, full kitchen facilities including two fridges/freezers and microwave, a walk-in store room, wood burning fire, T.V. VCR ,DVD, Sky TV, CD player, washing machine, gas BBQ, fish smoker and free wifi. Wanting to accommodate a larger group...3-4 families? See our advertisement for Willowwood Retreat. Maybe the two houses combined will suit your holiday needs...

Ngongotaha village is 5 mins away. It has a post office, wine shops, a supermarket, a hardware shop, bakeries and dairies, a service station, a tavern etc.

Local attractions are plentiful... trout fishing, Agrodome, Agroventures, Zorb, Rainbow Springs, Horse riding, Fish and Game Trout Hatchery, Wingspan, golf courses, mountain bike trails, etc.

  • This is a wee gem of a bach

    This is a wee gem of a bach. Our family booked at the very last minute and didn't want to leave. Waking up and looking out at the lake is simply food for the soul. Loved the use of the kayaks, being able to light the fire and holidaying in such a special spot. We would love to return.

  • The location was very good however on arrival the sleep out toilet...

    The location was very good however on arrival the sleep out toilet had a leak in it and the sleep out itself was very musty and had rodents in the ceiling. The door latch on the double French door was very difficult to lock from the inside.
