Our home is located close to the Waiteti Stream and the Ngongotaha lakefront park. Access to Lake Rotorua is an easy 2 minute stroll around the corner. Our home was originally built in the 1930's and we have enjoyed refurbishing it during the time that we have been the owners, all the while being careful to maintain its charm. It features 3 bedrooms, 1 large modern bathroom as well as 2 lounge areas and a modern kitchen. Each lounge areas has separate heating with one of these being a log fireplace. The property is completely fenced with lawn at the front and rear of the house for kids to enjoy. The house also has a lock-up garage.

A home away from home
We spent 3 wonderful nights in this cozy home. Very well equipped, comfortable beds, quiet and very clean. This cottage, near the shore was close to a major trout fishing area. We saw a 15” trout caught and released for being too small. Lots of great tourist attractions in all directions. The yard, front and back has outdoor seating and also a grill. The owner was there to greet us and offered us some helpful information about the local area. This home is perfect for a family. Thanks for a relaxing, enjoyable stay.
Great House right by the lake!
The home by the lake was great for my girlfriend and I! It had everything we needed for cooking and was a short drive into the town as well a a very short walk to the lake which has beautiful views. Gert was also very helpful during the check in process and was always quick in addressing any questions. I would definitely recommend this place as well as stay here again in the future.
Lots of room
Well appointed kitchen and bathroom, generous bedrooms and lovely garden areas; an excellent place for basing yourself out of for touring all around Rotorua which is mere minutes away.
Peaceful Holiday retreat
Tanya and her husband were excellent hosts meeting us on arrival and answering all our questions. The house is fantastic - luxurious bathroom with deep bath and great shower, soft comfortable blankets and beds, well appointed kitchen and we appreciated the dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer very much. The heat pump and fire with heat transfer system would be lovely in the colder months. The house has great indoor/outdoor flow with a front and back garden which is fully enclosed so we could let our two toddlers run around without issue. Highly recommend - exceptional value for money.
