We stayed for 3 nights as part of a 6 week tour of New Zealand. The venue is a little out from the main town but very well located for many of the attractions and very peaceful. Vivien was a lovely host and shared many great insights about Rotorua and for our onward trip. Our

Hi Jim & Christine Thanks for your lovely feedback. I am pleased to hear you had both enjoyed your stay at my place and appreciated the many great insights. It is always a pleasure to share local knowledge and make recommendations of places to visit. Glad to hear you had enjoyed Mission and got a case of wine from them. Indeed a lovely spot and great selection of wine to taste/buy. I will be there again next Feb to attend Elton John's concert after having been there this summer to Phil Colin's. Have a great Easter with your family. All the best wishes. Kind Regards Vivien

We stayed for 3 nights, having decided that after 2+ weeks of hostels, we deserved a bit of luxury. We were pleasantly surprised. First, to be clear, this isn't a "boutique" B&B, where the goal is to show off each year's trendy design -- though the design is pleasant and

Hi Geoff Thanks for your lovely write-up about your stay with me. Very well said and written of what I am and not. Some guests have expected the high end which I have not advertised to be. It is indeed a homey and comfortable B&B with everything that one needs during their stay with me. The bathroom has excellent shower and bathtub, glad you appreciated the dual vanity and with all amenities one can expect in this room with no TV. Thanks for suggesting the other 2 suites ie. the Koru & Redwoods with TV if guests prefer. It was a pleasure to sit with you both over breakfasts and afternoon tea time, I enjoyed hearing your story and thanks for listening to mine. I wish you both a restful and wonderful Easter with your family. Kind Regards Vivien

Charming, quaint B&B in a great location (walking distance to redwood tree walk, local dining). While the location was a big plus, what sets this stay apart is the host. Vivien goes to great lengths to ensure all guests are comfortable in her home. When we first arrived, she

We traveled with our 6 year-old son and had two days in Rotorua. Our short trip was incredible because Vivien took the time to make sure we hit the highlights. She even gave us a great recommendation for lunch! Breakfast was delicious and the room was comfortable. This is a

Hi Bonniejean, Eric & Oscar Thanks for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure meeting you all, though short but sweet. I am glad you did as much as you could during your 2 day in Rotorua. You are such delightful family, I enjoyed our conversation. Have a great Easter, not too many eggs for Oscar! Kind Regards Vivien

We stayed three nights, capping off our NZ vacation. The bedroom and ensuite were spacious and comfy -- as is the lounge, though we were out and about so much we didn't spend much time there. The breakfasts were tasty (I like that, schedules permitting, guests eat family-style

Hi Shoshanna Thank you for your wonderful feedback. Glad you had both enjoyed my hospitality and appreciated the spacious and comfy bedroom & lounge and the use of a fridge. I enjoyed my conversation with you too and the other guests at breakfasts. It is always so educational to learn of the many cultures around the world and to share ours with you. Yes, we are very fortunate to have the Redwoods Forest at our footsteps and only 5 mins into the city centre, however with the convenience of 3 restaurants in the vicinity of 2 mins most guests prefer to dine locally. Happy to hear you enjoyed the pub on the corner, great draught beer and good wine indeed. I wish you a Happy Easter and hope Bunny Rabbit delivers a few eggs! All the best wishes Vivien
