  • The views from the Pourakau Bay house were utterly amazing

    The views from the Pourakau Bay house were utterly amazing. And one night the moon rose across the water like a golden galleon. The house is perfectly located, less than 5 minutes from Tutanekai St. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The tv has a good range of channels. Great clothes washing facilities.  Outside is generous with the roses over the garage smelling wonderful. We have recommended this place to all our friends.

  • Simply amazing

    Simply amazing. The house is just beside the lake, and all amenities are just nearby. The kids love the kayaks and swans on the lake. Have a good camera handy for great morning and evening shots of the lake. Highly recommended stay in Rotorua.

    A great place to stay! The location is outstanding and the views are beautiful. The house has everything you need and was perfect for our family with a 1 1/2 year old and 4 year old.
