Our new lodge style retreat, just 30 metres from the shores of Lake Rotorua, captures the ambience of lake edge living.

This comfortable spacious home has two bathrooms, full modern kitchen facilities (including two fridge freezers and microwave), walk in pantry/storeroom, wood burning fire, TV, VCR, CD, DVD player, Sky TV, washing machine, gas BBQ, fish smoker and free wifi.

Combined with the facilities of "Willowmere Cottage" (also listed on this site) Willowwood and Willowmere provides the ideal venue for large family and friend get-together. Willowwood and Willowmere are on the same property and share access to the Lake.

Nestled among native and old English trees, 8 kms from Rotorua city. An acre of park like grounds provides plenty of off street secure parking and space for children to play. Access to a safe sandy beach, kayaks, dinghies etc make this an ideal holiday retreat.

  • Beautiful and well managed property

    Beautiful and well managed property. We stayed as a group of four but the property would be ideal for families or larger groups too as it has large open plan living/dining with the bedrooms on a cluster. Very close to the quiet side of lake Rotorua which is lovely! Highly recommended, we enjoyed our stay here.

  • Great place

    Great place... a quick fix to the shower at the end of hallway (shower blocked) will be great!
