This place is a hidden gem outside the bustle of Rotorua. The owners David and Grace are wonderfully welcoming. The cheese plate in our apartment was enough for dinner! Super clean with all the thoughtful amenities you could wish for. And thanks for letting us feed the alpacas!

This boutique bed and breakfast was an amazing find. It is a combination of traditional B&B with additional private facilities. Husband and wife owners on site and very hospitable. Though an out-of-the-way location, it is worth the additional drive.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad that you enjoyed your trip. We love being out of the city because of the peace and quiet but being near enough (6 km or 10 mins drive) to go there for the attractions, city center and restaurants. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thanks again, Grace & David
