A Panoramic Country Homestay is the ideal base to stay near many Rotorua attractions. Take in magnificent views overlooking Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island. Feel the peace and tranquility as you relax under the stars in the private guest heated massage spa pool. Curl up in front of the log fire in winter or the more energetic can play tennis or take many walks listening to the birds. Enjoy extra large beds for a peaceful nights sleep. All rooms have private bathrooms.
