Great place to stay. A nice new feel to the room. Very friendly owners with great knowledge of the area. Excellent spa and super comfortable beds. We could move in. Great location for all activities that Rotorua has to offer.

The location is very close to city centre. We stayed in two bedroom apartment with kitchen and it was very specious. The room also has private jetski. The kitchen was decent and usable. The bed had blanket heater which was very handy. The owner is also good guy and you can use his guidance for tour of city,

We stayed here two nights and wish it had been longer. It was a girls weekend and we had the three bedroom house. All the rooms were comfortable and super clean. It was nice to have an extra bathroom too. Our host was fantastic and showed us around. Honestly we spent the first 5 min going "wow". Our unit had... More

We stayed here for the netball Tournament. Has to be the best place weve stayed in for everything. Excellent rooms with equally outstanding hospitality (even down to a pack of cards). All rooms (i think there was about 6) were clean to a high standard when we arrived and then again when we returned from games. Defs will be returning

Fantastic layout: King bed downstairs studio style, double bed and 3 singles upstairs on the mezzanine floor. Nice kitchen with all amenities. Every thing was spotless and clean.
