we stayed for three nights in shula's lake house. we loved every minute of it, our room had the best view of the lake. bob and ginie are great hosts, ginie cooked us a delicious breakfast every morning and also some goodies to snack on during the evening. for instance, when we arrived at night, we enjoyed some home made banana bread. the lake house is a bit outside of rotorua and you do not get the sulphur smell at all. we felt very much at home and could do as we pleased. the room was huge and squeaky clean, the bed very comfy. the house itself is a gem, with beautiful wooden floors. we can thoroughly recommend this b&b.
