An absolute waterfront location, tranquil and restful. Our hosts were welcoming without being intrusive, the breakfasts were varied and delicious and we loved watching the ducks and swans, not just on the lake but foraging on shore right under our noses. A walking track right into the city. All the little details that make for an enjoyable stay had been... More

Ginie and Bob were great hosts and made you feel welcome the minute you entered. The location is gorgeous on the lake front. The breakfasts were very good. We caught a fish and we shared it with Ginie and Bob at dinner and had a great time with them. It was like leaving family when we moved on. It is... More

We have got warmhearted reception by the hosts. Two days stay made us feel much relaxed and without any inconvenience. Also, we enjoyed very tasty desserts , different type of breakfasts, and had a nice lookout of the wonderful scenes of the lake view. Highly recommended.

Sheila and her husband were most freindly and helpful hosts. The house is in a fabulous position with their rear garden running down to the lake shore. The lake is very beautiful and peaceful, especially in early morning with ducks and ducklings swimming along the lakeside. Ginie, the hostess, is a wonderful cook, and we were spoilt with her home...

Stayed for 2 nights and had a really wonderful stay. Location is very good with the area being quiet but still not far from the centre. Breakfast is excellent and views from the terrace are one of a kind. Highly recommended

We stayed 3 nights with Ginie and Bob and had a great time. Our room was comfortable and we loved having the use of the main living room and the deck, just a few steps from the lake. It was great to be far enough out of town not to suffer the sulphur smell, but still close enough that we... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Shula's lake house. We found the location ideal, as it was close to all the attractions in Rotorua, right on the lake for a lovely view, but yet far enough from town to avoid the "smell of Rotorua." Ginnie and Bob were great hosts - they were helpful with everything we needed, but gave... More

We had a lovely stay here for our honeymoon. We stayed here for 4 nights in December and loved it. The views of the lake are gorgeous and the bed was very comfortable. The room was cosy and had everything you needed. The main part of town is only a 5 minute drive away and we had no problem getting... More
