About Russell Malone
In 2015 the Cossey and Malone families purchased the property 50/50 so we had somewhere for family and friends to spend quality time together. There is so much to do no matter what the weather or time of year. We've set the property up so that other people can enjoy the Lake Views experience too.
Russell Malone purchased this House in 2015
Why Russell Malone chose Tikitere
We were looking for a holiday home where we could entertain friends and family and were introduced to the area by friends. We immediately fell in love with the lake and the secluded location. The views from the property are stunning and the access to the water and surrounding means there is never a shortage of things to do.
What makes this House unique
Perhaps the best feature is access to so many activities in the immediate area. The property is elevated above the lake and has a secluded beach with jetty. Exploring, water skiing, biscuiting, boating, hot pools, fishing, kayaking or just bathing. The area around the house is surrounded by a pine forest which is great for walking, jogging, and mountain biking. The tracks wind their way through quiet pine forest and have great views of the lake and access to thermal areas including a hot water stream and pool.

Fabulous Mid Winter Break
Had an excellent few days away from our farm. Very easy to find, super quiet AND the view was stunning.
My kids LOVED our private lakefront and my teen LOVED the spacey game!
Beds were comfy, shower pressure excellent and the table top soccer in the downstairs room was a bonus. The fire was easy to light and kept the house cosy in the winter.
We found the secret hot pools - beehives nearby if you have concerns - but they were great!
Oh and the forestry walks were stunning.
I highly recommend and Russell has been very easy to deal with - thanks again
Had an amazing time on the weekend staying here, was absolutely perfect and just like the photos if not better ! Would recommend to anybody who is travelling to Rotorua to stay here! Thanks again Russell 😊
Amazing long weekend, fantastic location and home. Very relaxing. Many thanks!!
the view was amazing, we enjoyed our stay
Location is a short drive from Rotorua. Secluded enough to feel like your away from civilisation yet close enough if you need to go shopping, restaurants etc. In a little community area on the lake. Lovely house, pull out couches could use some updating. Other than that everything was relatively clean and great communication with Russell even during our 15 days stay.
Great addition of kayaks to use on the lake. Highly recommend this place.
Most peaceful and picturesque location
Stayed as extended family (kids ages 5,7,10) To get away from it all. Perfect location to just Zen out by the lake. Well equipped house. The stairs up and down to the lake were a bit of a workout but hey. All loved the kayaks and a final swim before daylight savings ended. Seriously loved our stay! Great memories made ❤
