This was a combined business/pleasure trip. We stayed a total of five weeks (3 + 2 weeks) and we really felt that this was our "home away from home". Nice and comfortable cottages in a nice setting, on the lake, with a nice pool and hot spa... Also a very quiet and relaxing place, but still very close to Rotorua. Nick and Fiona were always there to help if we needed something, they even lent us an icebox when we were travelling for 2 weeks between our 2 stays!

We will definitely stay there on our next trip to the Rotorua region.

We wanted to stay outside of the main touristy spots in Rotorua and this place was perfect. A short drive from the city centre and we really felt like we got away from it all. The view of the lake was amazing, the barbecue was great, as was the pool and spa. Our room was comfortable and well equipped. The hosts were good and provided excellent advice on what to see and do. Highly recommended!

We stayed for four nights and were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The cabins were immaculate and had everything you needed and more. There was a lockable bike shed for the bikes, a boat park and a large choice of free DVD's to cater for everyone. It was nice to be away from the main centre of town and close by the lovely lakes surrounding Rotorua. We would certainly return for another relaxing break away from it all.

The location is perfect, the hosts are superb and the facilities are excellent. The only thing we regret is that we discovered the local outdoor spa too late. Bathing with the lake view was awesome, free and heaps better than in Polynesian spa (don't spend money on that). We were travelling with 1yo baby and hadn't had any problem there.

Room Tip: The closer to the Rotorua lake - the better

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The cottages are newly renovated and were immaculate. They have everything you need, including a blow dryer, ironing board and iron! They have a large variety of DVDs to check out too. They are located right on the lake in a quiet area. The owners are really nice people and very informative. I would definitely recommend staying here.
