We wanted a B&B type experience in NZ as we love staying in a real home with real people of that location. Our stay in Rotorua perfectly fit this desire - our host couple were genuine, warm, patiently answered all our questions even if they might have thought some were silly. The home was beautifully located and very nicely furnished.... More

We enjoyed having your family stay. Such a loving family, and how wonderful that you could all experience New Zealand together. It was totally our pleasure. Lenva and Robert Clark More

Brilliant home-stay with genuine Kiwi visitor experience. Room, bed and home was amazing and warmed with a lovely log burner fire. Great meal of roast lamb, and all the trimmings. Our hosts are to be commended on the presentation of their home and property. We would recommend to anyone wanting a comfortable and memorable experience.

We totally loved staying here! We have never stayed anywhere so friendly with such great care and effort taken for every guest. The house is in the best location in Rotorua with stunning views. The brilliant hosts put in the extra mile for you and no praise is high enough for this place.

My husband and I recently returned from a trip with GoWay Travel to New Zealand and Australia. We selected the optional Farmstay and thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay with Robert and Lenva Clark. Their home and the views were lovely. It was great to visit with some "native" New Zealanders and hear their perspective on the various topics we covered.... More

I was picked up from my hotel, along with 3 others, and taken on a trip round the lakes, before going to the home of Robert and Lenva Clark. After refreshments, we looked round the farm, and then ate a lovely home cooked meal with them. Their house has stunning views of the lake and mountains, and I'm glad that... More

What a great time we had with the Clarks. They are so much fun and were very helpful in providing my wife and I plenty of things to do even when the weather did not fully cooperate. Even with the cloudy skies their place has a stunning view of the lake and surrounding areas.

We were part of a larger tour group, APT (Australia Pacific Tours) and during our visit to the Rotorua area, we were given the opportunity for an overnight stay with a local family. Lenva and Robert Clark were wonderful and knowedgeable hosts. We experienced a hike through a beautiful park, containing trout streams and typical examples of New Zealand birds,... More
