  • Quiet, peaceful, rural outlook

Relax in our homely cottage in a great location. Enjoy a tranquil rural outlook whilst having the convenience of major tourist attractions and fast food outlets within easy walking distance. Unwind in comfort and soak up the calm in our home away from home. French doors off both the lounge and bedroom allow for great indoor/outdoor living and the deck is great for kicking back and enjoying a spot of sun with your favourite drink (without the smell of sulphur)!

The Cottage is situated opposite Mitai Maori Village (an awesome attraction highly recommended if you are looking to experience Maori culture), Rainbow Springs, Glass Blowing Art Studio, and Skyline Skyrides (leave the car at home; stroll down the road to catch the gondola, luge down the mountain, wine and dine and walk home!). Rotorua Canopy Tours has its office and meeting place a short walk towards the city. Opposite is Mini Golf.

The Cottage is also handy to a green grocer and dairy (a 5 minute walk) – and approximately 600 metres on Fairy Springs Road towards the city,(an 8 minute walk) is the Skyline Shopping Centre containing a mini Superette, Post Office, Burgerfuel, Bakery, Dona Kebab, Coffee Shop, Laundromat, Doctors Surgery and Chemist amongst other small businesses. Several fast food outlets: Burger King, McDonalds and KFC, oh and not forgetting a convenient BP for all those Wild Bean Café Coffee lovers all within easy walking distance or a short car ride further on.

Easiest Supermarket to locate is Countdown, 1500 metres on Fairy Springs Road towards the city. Turn left out of the driveway and continue on through 3 sets of lights (including pedestrian lights) and at the 4th set turn right.

Heading toward Ngongotaha are other tourist attractions including Ogo – a 2 minute walk, motorcycle rides, and further on is the Agrodome, Agroventures Adventure Park, AmazeMe hedge maze,and the Zorb. On Paradise Valley Road are Wingspan and the Fish and Game Trout Hatchery.

  • Our family really enjoyed staying at "The Cottage Downstairs"

    Our family really enjoyed staying at "The Cottage Downstairs". It had everything we needed and was very clean and peaceful. Francina, Ian and family are super friendly and respectful of the space. The few minutes drive into Rotorua and the walking distance to Skyline was awesome for us. This is a practical spot for mountain bikers who want to ride Skyline! Definitely would recommend to friends and family.
