I loved my stay at Sandi´s B&B. She is such a welcoming, generous and warm person that really cares about you and having a good time in Sandi´s B&B. I stayed in one of the garden rooms, had my own bathroom, a nice terrace and a huge & very comfy bed. Sandi´s breakfast are legendary I would say. She cooks... More

We stayed at Sandi's for 2 nights during our honeymoon in New Zealand, and we were so happy that we did! The location was very convenient, and Sandi was an absolutely terrific host. (Sidenote: when we discussed our "favorite people that we met in NZ," Sandi topped both of our lists!) Honestly, Sandi was just meant to be in the... More

Sandi's a very nice host, with helpful advice, making sure we are comfortable and know our way around Rorotua. The room itself was nice and clean. We did not have a chance to really enjoy the garden and the pool but it was prettily laid out. The B&B is also easy to find as it is on the main road... More

Sandi was very helpful giving invaluable advice about what to see and do in Rotorua and around. Even on occasion dropping me in town. The location was convenient and the room was comfortable. Add in a fine breakfast and you have a B & B that I don't regret choosing to stay at. Definitely reccommended.

Everyone is right. This is a perfect place to stay. Sandy is so great. She helped me find what to do. The room was cozy. Not small but just cozy. Breakfast was made to order. Do try to stay here. The location is good. Not far from town. Just down the road and you are there.

Yes, the B & B is on the main drag ( Fairy Springs road sounds so rural!). Yes, the decor is a tad out of date. BUT, Sandi makes up for any and all disparities. I know of no hostess at any B & B that is more determined that your stay with her is the highlight of your trip.... More

Thanks to Sandi we were able to plan a wonderful couple of days in Rotarua. She offered good advice, excellent facilities and a scrumptious breakfast, and then did all our laundry. Wish we'd had a little more time to enjoy her pool.

We saw this accommodation described on Trip Advisor as quirky and it certainly is that. We stayed in the log cabin which is sited in the back garden next to the pool. My wife said it reminded her of the times in her childhood that she spent in a beach hut in Bournemouth, but with much more room. There was... More

Sandi was the perfect host - even before we arrived. Having landed in Auckland late the previous night via Sydney, and our luggage somehow not making our connecting flight (despite a 2 hour delay!) Rotorua airport rang through to Sandi to say that our luggage was there and awaiting collection. This was not good enough for Sandi who insisted they... More

Somehow we were lucky that Sandi had available accommodation for us during the high tourist season. She put us up in the Family Chalet, an upstairs very spacious bedroom with a comfy king (might have been a queen but it felt huge) bed and two single beds (we were just two), apologizing left and right that it was at the...
