Superb position and views
This house is in a perfect position, overlooking Lake Rotorua. You can see the sunrise over the mountains at the other side of the lake and the clouds of steam from the vents over there as well. The property is very quiet and relaxing. There are lots of nooks and crannies in the garden, which make great spots for laying, partially, in the sun, just relaxing and thinking deep thoughts whist watching the swans swim by. The 65"tv is great for entertainment and there is a vast range of DVDs available to watch. We enjoyed our time at The Willows and are only sorry it was cut short by having to return to England before the corona virus travel restrictions bit. We will be back, in the future, to finish our trip.
Perfect location. Very roomy house. Beautiful yard Loved our stay
Just minutes from so many attractions. And after a long day it was so great to come back to BBQ and then relax in the hot tub or enjoy a movie in the movie room. Also Loved canoeing on the lake
Excellent place to stay
The house and grounds are beautiful. Really enjoyed the kayaks and lake access. Heaps of movies for the kids on a rainy day. Kerry is an excellent host.
Thanks for the lovely review Patrick. Hope to see you back one day.
Beautiful gardens on the lake
The property is filled with beautiful gardens and flowers. It is nestled back in a quiet neighborhood, situated on the lake. Black swans and ducks swim by the house all day. There is plenty of room for a large family- it sleeps 11. There are thousands of DVDs to watch-but we were never home to watch them. It is located 8-10 minutes from Rotorua downtown. Everything you need is provided. You have access to kayaks and canoes, linens, and a washer and dryer. It doesn't have AC, but the house cools down nicely with the windows cracked in the evenings. It was perfect.
Thanks for the lovely review Todd. Just to clarify, there is Air Conditioning. It is the cooling function of the gas central heating system.
Fantastic accommodation, very accommodating owner. Highly recommended
You may like to visit Hobbiton (Matamata) on the way if you are a Lord of the Rings fan, or the Waitomo Caves. In Rotorua there are lots of activities and destinations I could recommend. Personal favourites are Skyline Skyrides and their luge track, the Redwoods and Blue Lake for walking, Waikite Valley Hot Pools for a picnic and hot swim. There are various (expensive) geothermal tourist attractions you could visit but you could see boiling mud and steam at Kuirau Park in the city centre for nothing. The Tamaki Tours or Mitai Maori Cultural Show & Dinner experiences are both well regarded. Let me know what you are into and I can suggest other places.
