About Harmen and Barbara
We are a professional couple and have this beautiful property in use and to share for guest.
Harmen and Barbara purchased this House in 1997
Why Harmen and Barbara chose Rotorua
We live in both Islands and thus have spare homes / space from time to time. Many visitors have enjoyed our property and we have decided to make it available to others to enjoy.
What makes this House unique
Close to Rotorua and all its adventures it holds.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Very pricey for what this is
We knew it was small (studio). We didn’t know it is surrounded by another accommodation on one side and a wet forestry hill on the other side. So little light, lots of dampness.
Cleanness of some bed clothes was questionable. And we have to dress the beds with the provided linen ourselves. Might be the usual thing to do in NZ, but we found that weird.
Not one glass in the kitchen.
Not a coat hanger either, these little things count.
We couldn’t access the WiFi.
The web site listing is clear on the link in to other accommodation ( as a possibility) there is total separate access for this facility with car parking and walk way to the studio. The facility has a separate privacy area.
All linen is washed commercially so we are a bit surprised by the remark. The beds are not made, this is not hotel or motel accommodation.
It appears coat hangers have been removed by some one, we have replaced these. There are glasses in the cupboard under the kitchen sink. Wifi is and can be variable depending on other users on the road. ( many area's in NZ do not have high speed wifi in rural area's ) however the studio does have Wifi.
The Studio has a Heat pump. There is no general dampness in the facility, however at times Rotorua gets lots of rain and we have extensive gardens and large trees which will be wet when it rains but provide coolness and shade when its hot. Bach accommodation should not be confused with Hotels or Motels. Our rates are set for providing a unique setting in a very popular area of NZ. Based on several years of feedback from many guest around NZ and the world, we find the feedback from these guest out of character.
It’d be nice to have wifi

Wifi is available, but can be intermittent due to rural setting limitations
The place was just as described.
The place was just as described. Hard to find in the dark though- even with the excellent directions and would be nice if lights had been on/heater for a later arrival in the winter.
Thank you for feedback, we have solar lights on key places and the heater should have been on for you as its never turned off. It is possible we had a power glitch in which case the heater would have turned itself off. Apologies for that
On the City Boundary, best of both worlds close enough to be city and yet Rural tranquil and comfortable. We can cater for just a couple of family or groups. Several accommodation options on same property
