  • It was absolutely wonderful staying here!! Phil was super informative on the history of the land and the geographical context behind Rotorua’s rolling hills. He gave us information on places we could go. There were plenty of brochures for guests to check out and the space was incredible. All the photos on the listing are exactly what you get, which is breathtaking!! Thank you Phil for making this stay so memorable!

  • Great stay at Phil's place - stunning scenery and great local knowledge from Phil.

  • What hospitality! Phil met us when we arrived, gave us a tour, and pointed out several things of interest (such as things to do, as well as the natural wonders of the area). It was our first night in New Zealand, and we couldn't have asked for a better start. Phil is a wonderful host, and his property is picturesque. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone :) ..thank you again Phil!

  • Incredible view, photos do not give it justice! Try to make sure you check in, in time so you get to see enough of the view in the light as not to be missed. Fab kitchen although can eat in nearby Rotarua. The animals made for an added nice surprise! Phil is full of hints and tips for your stay and helped us find fun things to do in the area. Would definitely recommend.

  • The house of Phil is an amazing place. The house is beautiful, with everything in it what you can need. But really special are the wonderful and constantly changing views! Never seen such a beautiful sunset as from this house, sitting in my chair in the room ;-) Phil is really very kind and the fresh eggs which she brought delicious. We thanked the chickens for them, which were walking arount the house. Very nice. I highly recommend this place to everybody who stays in this area.

  • Heinrich and Judy’s place is a great place to spend a few days exploring Rotorua. This is a clean and comfortable place hosted by very friendly and helpful hosts. Situated in a quiet location some 15 minutes drive from Rotorua town centre this is an ideal place to relax. Heinrich and Judy are lovely hosts and we highly recommend them. Daily breakfast was fantastic and delicious! Good value and highly recommended.

    Mario2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Margot2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Due to a technical glitch on Air BnB, we double booked for the night and didn’t get to stay at Phil’s. Five stars from me for his concern that we’d had trouble on our journey leading to us not making it. Thanks for checking on us, Phil, and sorry again for the confusion.

    Kirsty2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • An awesome stay awaits you at Phil‘s. The guest house ist very comfy, modern and contains all you need. The communication is very friendly and super easy for check-in and -out. We loved staying at this place

    Lukas2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great views over the lake and countryside and only a 20 min drive into Rotorua. Would recommend this place to anyone who values a quiet location and superb views.

    Your booking is for you and your guests only and you wont be sharing with anyone else at your end of the house. We live here as well as it is our home which we are sharing with you. SORRY, BUT THE KITCHEN IS "NOT" PART OF YOUR SPACE.
    Generally it is very quiet living out here.
  • Awesome accommodation. Comfey bed, great breakfast and hospitality

    Mark 2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • You won't be able to find a better b&b. Hosts are really welcoming and a mine of local information. Bed was comfortable and everything was very clean. The rural location is far enough out of Rotorua to be peaceful but not far to travel into town. 6*s, 5 isn't enough stars.

    Chris2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnbs I've ever stayed in. Really comfortable beds, very clean. And Dayhl was very hospitable. We weren't able to check in till midnight due to a mishap. But she graciously met us and showed us around, and then cooked a delicious meal in the morning, with good yarns to boot.

    David2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • I can highly recommend this air bnb. Dayhl and Keven are great hosts and very welcoming. I have had the best sleep and felt like I'm at home. Sparkling clean and very quiet, perfect for a peaceful stay. I'll definitely come back :)

    Steffi2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Dayhl and Kevin were fantastic hosts! They were very warm and welcoming. The house was clean and in a nice quiet area with a quick drive into Rotorua. Breakfast was delicious and would definitely recommend this Airbnb to anyone coming through Rotorua!

    Taylor2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful, clean, made to feel right at home at this wonderful B&B. Good proximity to all kinds of great things to do in and around Rotorua and the various townships. I have to say it's one of the best Airbnbs in terms of value and experience I have stayed with. Can't go wrong with a stop here!

    Brian2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, stylish, sparkling clean. It was a cosy space with a very comfortable bed! Thoughtful hosts who had so much to offer, super friendly and yummy breakfast. Thank you for hosting my husband in your home!

    Antoinette2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay with Dayhl and Kevin. The property is immaculate and sparkling clean. The location is beautiful and tucked away from the busy town but also a quick drive away. Bed was very comfortable and the views are gorgeous. Breakfast was lovely! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place in the area.

  • Janey's property is absolutely stunning! The view from the place is amazing, quiet, peaceful, calming and a perfect place to relax. Her house and the rooms are perfect too! Extra clean, very welcoming and we all slept so well that we wished night was longer when we woke up! I definitely will recommend this place to anyway that is going to Rotorua! Perfect stay for me! Thank you Janey for being a great host and welcoming us in your house.

    Maiwenn2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful wee place to call home for the evening. Beautiful view over the lake, stunning sunset and we were even treated to come fireworks. Comfy beds, all the amenities we could have needed and a lovely shower in the morning. The place was breezy and cool - absolutely lovely.

    Nicola2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay! Very quite and you can see breathtaking view from the window. Highly recommended!!

    赵萌不咸2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A great space with beautiful views!

    Nick2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great, just as described and met our needs perfectly. There's a nearby public BBQ point by the lake should you want to cook more than is practical with the in-house facilities.

  • We were totally at home travelling with two little families. 2 babies and 1 toddler. Magical view in an amazing location. Two different wings. It was just perfect for our holiday. Michael was super accommodating. Thank you 😍

    Danni2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Michael is an amazing host with outstanding hospitality! The bugs were no problems for us, we had a great stay and enjoyed the views!

    James2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful old lake home. The kids loved playing outside and at the lake/beach (although there is a drop off/cliff to be aware of). There were a lot of bugs including flies that got inside. It’s a great and comfortable place to stay right on Lake Rotorua.

    Heather2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice vintage-decorated house, well equiped with all rooms very clean. Great communication with Michael. Incredible location on the lake with great sunsets. Thanks Michael!

    Corine2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely relaxing spot. Great to unwind and watch the weather over the lake during the day and the twinkling lights at night.

    Stephanie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the house is fantastic, right on Lake Rotorua, very quiet, on the Hamurana side of the lake. The outdoor area is very special, spacious, beautifully designed, with a pond, with a beach and direct access to the lake. Swimming, canoeing at any time. The house is very spacious and beautifully designed. The kitchen is very well equipped. Michael, the landlord, lives in the house next door with his lovely dog; Contact possible at any time if required. We felt very comfortable. We would prefer to stay there.

    Sabine2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We reached the location very late at night and it was really nice of Michael to welcome us all and shows us around the house. The house gave us a very comfy cozy feeling at night. We were amazed by the view in the morning.. there are so many sitting areas built with care to give privacy to everyone staying there. Spectacular view.. amazing memories.. Just a tip: Although the address on the listing is accurate, it’s a little tricky to get there (probably after dark) so it’s good to slow down on the last couple of kilometres.

    Shruti2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Michael's place was perfect for our bridal house, everything was spotless and the design of the whole house was quirky yet homely. There is a great view of the lake from every bedroom, a small private beach area and of course Gus the cat who got lots of fuss from all of us.

Try the new Rotorua Canopy Tours or the Redwoods Tree Walk! A must visit is 'Eat Street' where a full block of many of our great restaurants have covered 'al fresco' dining in a stunning setting (close to the lake).

Also, many special Maori cultural options along with the many unique volcanic activity venues - Tamaki, Te Puia, Wai-o-tapu, Hell's Gate, etc - including free volcanic activity in Kuirau Park in town. Don't miss the Gondola and the many options at the top! The Luge is a favourite. Good cafe and great restaurant also.
  • We loved our stay at Phil and Melva’s place! The retreat was comfortable and very clean. We loved taking out the kayaks on the river for a quick paddle!

    Casey2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Melva’s place. The unit was well stocked with kitchen supplies and even had a knife sharpener (having sharp knives at the air bnb is a rare luxury). We really loved the outdoor areas and the trail by the creek. They provided excellent instructions and a helpful list of things to do in the area. The only inconvenient piece is the layout, the only bathroom is located in a bathroom. It’s also a hard place to take a nap, possibly sleep in the very back bedroom but the other areas are just highly used. Overall it was a very relaxing place to stay. I would highly recommend to others!

    Natalie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for an escape from our busy lives. Very quiet and relaxing with easy access to the lake. Would love to stay there again.

    Toni2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, very clean and comfortable, with all necessary aspects to make your say delightful! We certainly enjoyed grilling our dinner 😊 The house is a bit outside Rotorua, in a quiet neigborhood (a major advantage for us but it requires you have a car) and is next to a stream roaming with fish (bring your own equipment). The owners provide precise and comprehensible instructions, which made it very easy to make ourselves comfortable in no time. We highly recommend it 😊

    Adriana2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Phil and Melva's house! Access to the lake with kayaks is a real plus. The garden and the terrace are very pleasant and the bedding comfortable. I recommend !

    Ornella2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location backing onto stream, everything you could possibly need and spotlessly clean-a wonderful property

    Carole2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Our home has gated access to the Waiteti Stream which flows to Lake Rotorua, a two minute walk stream-side. You’ll love our place; outdoor space, quiet neighborhood, comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen and four kayaks. Our place is great for couples and families; it's very popular with tourists - a good base to come home to. Close to many family-friendly and touristy activities, Ngongotaha's restaurant/cafe and supermarket. Guests are asked to leave the home clean and tidy.
    Our home has an open plan kitchen, dining and living area with a step-down conservatory which catches a lot of sunshine. There are three bedrooms with 2 having queen beds and the third 2 single beds. The bathroom has very recently had a full upgrade along with most of the home and the main bedroom now has an ensuite.
    Ngongotaha boasts world famous trout streams - both the Waiteti and the Ngongotaha streams draw fishermen from afar. It's a friendly neighborhood with a mix of retirees, young families and renters. Being away from the centre of Rotorua we do not have any sulphur smells which is a real bonus. The local cafe/restaurant 'Essence' provides great coffee and food and there are several takeaway options should you be needing them.
  • An extraordinary house. Spotlessly clean & equipped with any amenities you could require.

    Lesley2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely house with loads of space and fun amenities like kayaks!! Would recommend this stay to anyone 🌸

    Mikayla2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it, location and facilities as described - very clean. Great base for exploring Rotorua. We had fun on the kayaks and didn’t fall in the stream!

    Aled2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This home was sparkling clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. Additionally this home was in a convenient location for travel to different attractions. You will love walking to the lake along the steam. I guess the best way to recommend this home is by saying “I could live in this home”.

    Lynn2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Phil and Melva were quite responsive and helpful. Home was welcoming, beautiful and clean. Would definitely like to stay here longer next time. Exceeded expectations in every way

  • We stayed for 2 nights at Emma's place and had a wonderful stay. The accommodation is accurately described on AirBnb. It was spotlessly clean and well-appointed. The provision of tea, coffee, milk, fruit and breakfast cereals was much appreciated. Emma was a very welcoming host who looked after us from start to finish. We would unhesitatingly recommend staying here.

    Chris2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Emma's place has all the listed amenities. It's a beautiful house conveniently located closed to Rotorua. Will definitely visit again. Loved the warm welcome from Marty :)

    Shilpa2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Emma’s place is relaxing and a quiet home away from home in Hamurana. We enjoyed meeting Marty, and the warm welcome by Emma. The location is conveniently located to the surrounding attractions, and lake filled with black swans. Very peaceful.

  • Warm welcome, comfortable accommodation in the countryside near the lake and close to the city. Good value for money. I recommend !!

    Aurélie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Emma's place is nicely located close to the lake. It is not far from Rotorua making most of the attractions accessible by car within just twenty minutes. Emma's place is clean and quiet. We liked to sit on the deck and enjoy evening after day's adventures. Thank you Emma.

    Hamurana is an area bordering Lake Rotorua, it is a quiet rural area with most properties being lifestyle blocks.

There are an array of takeaway shops as well as a 4 square store situated in Ngongotaha. Hamarana walkway takes you from the end of our road (350m) to Hamarana Springs.
  • This is an airbnb above all others. The cabin was designed for outdoor living in a garden paradise. The furnishings and appliances were high end and special treats were provided by the hosts. We loved it!

    Susan2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Ruth2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Hands down the best Airbnb I've ever stayed at. The cabin is super unique, stylistically and functionally and has pretty much everything you need on site. The cabin is stacked with amenities, an outdoor bath, lit up walkways, lush gardens, open plan, super easy and informative access to the address and to cap it, you rock up to cold drinks, fresh food and a nice old chat. There's really nothing that this place could further offer. The location in Hamurana is also prime with local shops around and an easy drive into the surrounding towns. I couldn't recommend this enough. Get at and around it!

    Amanda2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect accommodation- went there alone - visit the sheep and chicken - modern equipped kitchen. Cozy living room. Everything what is necessary is available plus more tools. Between bedroom and bath is a curtain - probably this is relevant for couples going there. Altogether an outstanding place to my mind!

    Peter2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Really cute cottage stay just out from Rotorua city, lovely little touches throughout the cabin like fresh eggs and yogurt in the fridge on arrival from the farm!

    The cottage is close to some of Rotorua's best trout fishing spots. Skyline Skyrides, the Agrodome, and Rotorua with the hot springs are all within a 10 min drive. Hobbiton (Matamata) is a 45 min drive away, as is Tauranga with its beautiful beaches. The fully restored, comfortable 2 bedroom cottage was originally built for the beekeeper who lived on the land. The lead light on the wall reflects this early life. It is on a small lifestyle block with sheep and a lovely garden.
    This is a fully self-contained cottage, including a washing machine, full cooking facilities (stove, oven, microwave, large fridge etc). All linen is supplied and there is free wifi. It has a queen bed in one room , and a double and a bunk bed in the other.
    The cottage is in a rural area - but is close to Lake Rotorua (about a 2 min drive).
  • Great Stay, was perfect for our family getaway!

    Jami-Leigh2020-03-20T00:00:00Z

  • Super cute place! Easy parking right up to the entrance. Definitely private & the cottage isn’t too close to the main home. The stars at night were spectacular & the host was so sweet. We even had some easy breakfast items waiting for us, personal touches & we got to meet her sheep. We will be back for sure!!

    Sara2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

    Only 8kms to Rotorua central and less than 4kms to Skyline cable cars, bungee jumping, Rainbow Springs, Zorbing, and Velocity Valley adrenaline park and Redwoods mountain bike park is 11kms. Our home is 50 mtrs from the lake and situated in the quiet neighbourhood of Ngongotaha. All rooms have individual code locks. Plenty of parking, full use of kitchen and gas hot water so we never run out! There is free use of a double kayak (life vests too).
    Beautiful walk down by the lake and the coffee shop Cafe Dynasti in Ngongotaha has great coffee and awesome food.
  • Lovely hosts, had everything you needed for a very comfortable stay. Shelly went above and beyond to give us suggestions on what to do. Great value for money, would recommend 10/10.

    Cameron2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    We're 7km's away from Rotorua central. Our rustic tiny home is set in our back garden (along with 4 chooks, 2 giant bunnies & our 2 year old Labrador. The rustic tiny home is private. It has a double bedroom with a comfy queen bed and private ensuite bathroom. There's a separate lounge area with kitchen & dining space, T.V & a cozy single sofa bed. It is surrounded by a deck with a BBQ for your use. We are by no means luxurious but do have inspiration, character, & heaps of love for our home.
    Our tiny home is perfect for a couple but hosts 3 at a squeeze with the sofa bed made up for your 'mini me'. We are on a main road in a residential area with neighbours either side & a large paddock behind us. We have been developing our gardens for a year now after pulling up a large amount of our lawns and putting veggie boxes down. There is a chicken coup around the back of the tiny home with daily fresh eggs for you, the chooks like to 'talk' so you will hear them chattering in the morning. Many people who stay with us don’t realise that we are quite far away from town & mark us down for location. This is something we can’t change, so kindly please research Ngongotahā before you book with us. Also, as stated above, please be aware that we are on a main road with neighbours either side & paddocks with animals behind us. We make kombucha, kawakawa tea and healthy preserves such as beetroot sauerkraut. We hope you enjoy them, we love sharing. There is tea, filter coffee and other hot drinks. Our homemade granola is delish, and there's plenty for you to try. Enjoy the selection of board games and variety of books to relax with. ***IMPORTANT*** We are on low pressure water supply & hope to swap to gas hot water soon to solve this, but for now, if you enjoy your power shower in the morning, then our rustic tiny home may not be your cuppa tea! *** Please note, if you require the single sofa bed made up, but there’s only 2 of you, you will need to book in as 3 people to allow for extra bedding & make-up etc & please note you’ll need to be happy with a smaller sized bed. The sofa bed is ideal for a child. ***
    We are a stroll away from the lake and Ngongotaha village where you'll find a lovely cafe (Dynasti), bakeries, grocery store (a large Four Square), garage, petrol station, post office and more. We are close to the magical Hamurana Springs with crystal blue waters and further round the lake will lead you to Okere Falls with another lovely cafe, forest walks and white water rafting if you dare. We are a 10 minute drive from Rotorua and only a 45 minute drive away from Tauranga. We're also 10 minutes or less from Ngongotaha Railway Park, the Zorb, Agrodome, Agroventures, Helipro, Skyline Skyrides with Volcanic Hills wine tasting and world class mountain bike tracks, Canopy Tours, Rainbow Springs and the Big Splash, twilight mini golf and horse riding tours.

    My place is a short stroll from the lake, Waiteti trout stream, and the Ngongotaha lakefront reserve. The village is 5 mins away for shops with Rotorua city 15 mins. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). The home has a fibre wifi connection and guests receive complimentary Netflix access.
    Relax on the lakefront park and enjoy the safe shallow waters for kids and adults alike. Take a stroll along the Waiteti Trout stream, which is half a block away from the house (don't forget to take some bread to feed the ducks). Pop into Rotorua and visit Skyline for great views of the city, take in some culture and geothermal activity at Te Puia and afterwards have a soak in the soothing hot spring pools at the world-renowned Polynesian Spa. Supplies are available at Four Square in Ngongotaha village for anything urgent but for a more extensive selection visit Countdown in Fairy Springs Rd in Rotorua (about 10 mins drive)
  • That was a great vacation for two families with kids in cozy beautiful house. Three rooms, place for children and toddler, 10-15 minutes to most places you need. Treats for children included =) Best place if you worry about unique Rotorua smell and don't want to stay in the city. Big thanks to Tanya for that amazing accommodation.

  • A beautiful character house with many thoughtful touches throughout the house. Slightly away from the hustle and bustle of town but therein lies its charm. A gorgeous lake just a 3-5 minutes easy walk away, perfect to watch the sun rise and start your day. 3 bedrooms means everyone gets to sleep comfortably on their own beds! Need to cook? Everything you need is there. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Karen2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely peace and quiet out in the countryside. Really nice to see the animals and have a lovely little crib all to ourselves to enjoy. Home was equipped with some seasonings, cooking oil, tea, coffee, washing equipment etc so we didn't have to shop for too much of the little stuff for the few days we were staying there.

    George2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

    Lakeside living at its best! This charming 100 year old home has 3 bedrooms, lounge, dining and conservatory to enjoy. Sojourn and soak up the vista or run across your lawn down to the sandy shore where you can make sandcastles, swim or kayak. Scenic walks and the cycleway are close by or you might prefer to try your luck at one of the nearby world-class fishing spots.
    Perfectly positioned to face the lake, the 3 bedroom home exudes an airy charm thanks to the classic high ceilings and spectacular lake views which can be fully appreciated from the living area, conservatory and the master bedroom. An outdoor living area invites alfresco summer living and afternoon barbeques. Please note that this home is 100 years old. Although it has had some upgrades over the years with recently replaced carpet, bathroom and furniture, it still has the quirks of an older home. Ngongotaha is a town on the western shores of Lake Rotorua in New Zealand's North Island. Ngongotaha is perfectly positioned 10 mins from Rotorua township and a few mins drive from Skyline Luge, Zorb and all the Rotorua attractions.
  • Aimee was such a lovely host, really quick with communication and very helpful and kind. The house is awesome if you have kids, with toys, kayaks, cot highchair etc and we loved the outdoor area with the BBQ and fireplace which was well equipped and easy to use. We sat by the fire roasting marshmallows with a glass of wine while the kids kayaked right in front of us on the lake.

    Fleur2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    This hut is ideal for those who are partial to a bit of glamping. It is fairly basic, with a kettle, microwave, bar fridge and toaster inside. There is a toilet and shower situated outside, linked by a covered deck. There is a double bed, with a bed-side light, power sockets and some storage space. The hut is well lit, and there is also a hammock that can be hung up for relaxation. The bus stop (that goes into Rotorua town) is 100m walk, and the local village center and trout stream is nearby.
  • Beautiful and relaxing stay. Was super clean and loved the farm vibes. Loved the extra touches that made it home-y. Had a lovely time!

  • Lovely little place for a couple of nights for Rotorua sightseeing. Bridget was an amazing host giving us lots tasty treats like banana bread cakes that were amazing! Outside amenities from bedroom were a nice refreshing change in the hot weather. Would more than happily stay again for a short stay if back in the area.

    Holly2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great little bach , located on the edge of the rural country side. set up in a Glamping style with attached toilet and shower with outdoor access via the veranda. Get location to site back and relax with the chickens doing there thing and the cows having a moo in the adjacent paddock. photos online don't tell the true story but a quick video may help https://youtu.be/mr4m9JRlNRM

  • The Bach on Kingsley was a beautiful place to stay. I really enjoyed having my breakfast on the porch and listening to the sound of farm animals as the sun rose. I also enjoyed readying my book on the hammock. Short walk to the bus stop that takes you straight into town. Bridget is a great host and I cannot recommend this funky accommodation more. Thank you for having me :)

    Ailish2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

    Central Park Cottage is a place to make memories. Our rolling farmland with fabulous rural and lake views, is a haven for native birds with extensive plantings of native plants. Within 10 minutes you can enjoy Canopy Tours ,Agrodome, Mitai Maori Experience, Skyline/Luge to name a few. A little further afield is the stunning Redwood Forest ,well known for mountain biking and walking trails.There are so many fantastic places to visit and adventures to be had, that it is not possible to list them.
    The cottage has a lovely indoor/outdoor area. It has a spacious kitchen/living area where the view to the rural/lake vista is simply beautiful.
  • A fantastic location away from the hustle and bustle of town, yet just a 10 min drive to restaurants, cafes, bars, grocery, etc. The place was sparkling clean with all the necessary kitchen and bathroom amenities. We loved cooking breakfast every morning, opening the living room blinds and watching the sunrise. This rural location is so peaceful. We would definitely return again! Thank you Lynn & Julian!!

    Leah2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • My time spent a Central Park Cottage was just perfect, with the exquisite views of rolling mountains and peaceful surroundings made for the most relaxing holiday I could have ever asked for... the cottage was well equipped and very clean with its large kitchen and spacious lounge dining area.. Both Lyn and Julian were very welcoming and most definitely hospitable and I can highly recommend this place for a peaceful, private get away close to many attractions, sites and activities...

    Tracy2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lyn and Julian are awesome hosts with lots of tips of what we could do and the sites to see. Central Park is a great place to stay with fantastic views and very close to many attractions. It has all the amenities that you could need for any length of stay. We highly recommend Central Park Cottage!

    Ron2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a wonderful place to stay. Easy to find and access. Really quiet and beautiful views with a wonderful soft grass garden for the kids to run around in. Everything you need is in the cottage, great for families as there are washing facilities. Lyn and Julian are very friendly and full of ideas of things to suit your visit to Rotorua and the surrounds. We particularly enjoyed the Agrodome, Redwood Forest and The Living Village. The icing on the cake was the walk around the farm and the stars at night. Our kids ( and us!) didn’t want to leave this little paradise. Well worth the drive out of the center of town. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.

    Rotorua, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

    This self-contained cottage with 2 bedrooms, has the most beautiful view over Lake Rotorua. 15 Minutes from town,with most attractions only 10 minutes away. The local 9 hole Golf course and its springs just around the corner.
    The cottage has been newly furbished and has a clean modern feel. Easy indoor/outdoor flow. Plenty of space both inside and around the cottage and as the cottage is build on top of a hill, it gives you a spacious feel.
    The cottage is overlooking Lake Rotorua, and has a true rural feel, with a few sheep grazing in the paddocks. Most attractions are close by, such as Rainbow Springs, Agrodome, Agroventures, Skyline Skyrides, Mitai, one of the best Maori culture experiences in Rotorua, to name a few. If you feel like being away from it all, this is the place to be! Yet, all action is only 15 minutes away! Rotorua is a true tourist town and is becoming famous for its mountain biking. It has 9 beautiful lakes, and The Red Wood forest is a true treat to walk through.
  • Beautiful cottage, set atop a hill overlooking Lake Rotorua. The attention to detail & personal touches make this location the best BnB we have found in New Zealand. Homemade bread & jams & attention to details of your travel needs. Loved the bread to feed the sheep that graze close to the cottage. Truly a beautiful & stylish place to spend a few days near Rotorua.

    Bobby2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • A nice quiet place with a great view. We really enjoyed our stay there. We would definitely come again.

    Carina2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house is on one Hill from where you have a great view of the valley and the lake. From the bed you can also enjoy the great sunrises and sunsets. The living room is large and cozy, the kitchen is equipped with everything. For breakfast everything was provided by the owner, you just had to prepare it yourself. There is absolutely nothing to complain about, we had a great time there

    Claudia2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, spacious and stylish Dutch hospitality! Beautifully located away from Rotorua in the country side with stunning views of the lake but close enough to the town and all the sights! Great privacy too.

    Michael2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

    Want to wake up in the morning and look out on a spectacular view of Lake Rotorua? Want to enjoy listening to the birds singing and not traffic? Our unit might be the ideal place for a quiet weekend away, be that for business or pleasure. We have wifi, air conditioning and a plethora of animals to pet! The pictures don't give the place justice (actual comment from a guest). The unit even has a Chromecast so you can watch videos from your device
    Our unit was purpose built in 2003, it is approximately 30m2 and is a studio layout. It comes fully equipped with a queen bed (bedding included), a shower room with WC, a small kitchen with hob, oven, kettle, toaster and espresso coffee maker. There is also a dining table, a three seater and two seater sofa, a TV (Freeview) and DVD player and a small stereo. Best of all the unit is air-conditioned - cool in summer, cosy in winter.
    Our property is on an exclusive development at about 1000 feet above sea level - there are just eight properties on the estate. That said we are just 1km from the lake edge and even closer to the famous Hamurana Springs. The local nine hole golf course is within walking distance. Hamurana Springs is also a renowned fly fishing spot. Hamurana store is under 2km away, whilst the local village Ngongotaha has an array of food outlets, shops, cafes and medical facilities. Lake Rotoiti is also about 10 mins drive away and Okere Falls (for rafting) about 15 mins.
  • A great space to base ourselves for exploring around Rotorua. Ian was a fantastic host and always had advice for us regarding things to do. The studio itself was perfect, with a great view out across the lake. The dogs added to our feeling at home, and being able to pet the goats and alpacas was an added bonus!

    Luke2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Stay at least a week here, there is so much to see the views and so much to do you will find the experiences like the skyline, several Maori cultural attractions, natural geyser sites, water sports, bike rides, markets and much much more.

    Garry2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Ian and Jane are great hosts - very friendly and knowledgeable about the region. The space was very comfortable and clean. Excellent vista views and a quiet location. The 3 small dogs, 4 alpacas and 2 goats were entertaining too! Simply, A GREAT STAY 😃

    Welcome to your tiny home away from home. This space has been designed for you to feel tucked away and private. The room has a warm and soothing feel to it, as the walls are lined with eco ply. Walls, ceiling and floorboards are oiled with natural oils. You have your own bathroom and shower. The toilet is shared. Your kitchenette has a tiny fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave and electric wand for your use. Two sets of French doors open to large decks for to enjoy the garden that surrounds you.
    Home away from home is a room self contained tiny style studio. It is attached to my home. Nestled amongst the garden this space has been designed to give you the sense you are in a wee cabin in a corner of a garden. French doors open the room up at each end and give views out to the gardens and access to your own decks. You have your own fully functional kitchenette with barstools and table. Dishes are done campingstyle in a basin provided and hotwater is easily accessed from the bathroom tap. You have beanbag, sunlounger matress and deck chair if you feel like lounging. A huge round mirror and rounded shower are the main features in your bathroom. Access to the toilet is simply through your bathroom to the shared toilet. My home is a back section off the road and has a parking spot near your entrance. The entrance is covered and well lit at night. I am very excited to say we are also now solar powered! I recycle and compost as much of your waste as possible and have provided bins for seperation to aid in the process... oh and if you are visiting our country, please bring your own shopping bags as we are single use bag free (at the till) New Zealand. As your hostess I endevour to make your stay feel like home away from home and for you to feel welcome and tuned into our beautiful city. There is so much natural wonder and beauty to enjoy here, I wish you a most wonderful time.
    I live in an eclectic neighbourhood with over a dozen holiday homes in my street as I am a stones throw from the shores of Lake Rotorua. There is a lovely lake front reserve... Reeme Street reserve with paths that lead you left and right to the outlets of the two streams either side of Ngongotaha. There are multiple seats and a picnic table to the left of the jetty. Also if you walk left once you are at the jetty, the lake front walk takes you to the Waiteti Stream... check out the georgous foot bridge and pause a moment on the seat that overlooks the lake. The path along the stream winds along under huge trees and offers glimpses of trout in its clear waters. There is an industrial area a block over so the entry to my hood is not so glamerous... but the view over to Mokoia Island across the lakes water and the surrounding caldera soothe the senses once you turn into Reeme Street.
  • Lisa was very welcoming- we loved our stay.

    Janice2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very Earth 🌍 Conscience. Great for Vegans and Vegetarians. Extremely clean. Great value... The host is super loving and friendly. Will stay here again. It’s a beautiful space close to the lake. I love the cat on the gardens

  • Sweet place, sweet host. Thanks!

    Tessie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this guesthouse and for so many reasons. Most importantly, Lisa is an absolute gem. She will make you feel right at home the instant you arrive. She took care of us like we were her own family. The space was perfect for us. It is attached to her own house but we had total privacy because of the way the layout was designed. Tons of light during the day and air flow due to the french doors on either side of the house. The gardens around the hiuse are lovely. The only thing you share with the main house is the toilet which was never an issue at all; you get your own shower and sink and all the other amenities like a toaster, small fridge, electric kettle, etc. We really felt we had everything we needed for a great, comfortable stay in Rotorua. The location was fantastic as we were never more than 10 or 15 minutes from all the fun things to do around town. We followed a lot of the tips that Lisa suggested in the guest handbook and in person and we enjoyed everything we did. Lisa has lots of local knowledge that helped us make good use of our short time in Rotorua. So just stay with Lisa and you’ll have a fantastic time. Forget about any other airbnbs you might be looking at, do yourself a favor, and meet the best hostess you could ever ask for. :)

    Steve2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's place was absolutely wonderful. Really cozy and it had everything I needed and I was able to relax right away. Lisa also provided some great tips for exploring Rotorua. I would definitely stay here again!

  • What an amazing space!! Cosy & peaceful, with a lovely eco feel. A short walk to the shore of Lake Rotorua, a super cafe just up the road. This space was perfect for our stay in Rotorua. Lisa really Is a super friendly host, it was great to meet & chat, excellent communication & her local knowledge is superb - we made good of her advice for local attractions. Highly recommend!

    Michael2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little space! Had everything we needed and was sparkling clean. We loved lounging around with all the doors open, or sitting in the beautiful backyard on the deck. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay here again some day - thanks Lisa!

    Mancave on Oturoa A little hideaway for a quiet weekend away. If you're wanting to get away from the city, have limited cell coverage and no wifi this is the place to be. Step out onto the deck and enjoy the view of farmland. Tucked at the back of the property giving you your privacy. Suited for one or two people, we'll be around most of the time if you're needing anything we're just down the drive.
    Located 20 minutes out of town, 10 minutes to ngongotaha village
  • Great private location. Stayed here after a long hike and this was the exact place I needed. ‘Man cave’ describes this place really well. Everything I needed was there, even a washing machine! You can have a lovely breakie on a terrace just outside your bedroom! Marg was also a great and quick communicator. Recommended.

  • We arrived quite late when it was already dark, but finding the place and checking in late was super easy. Marg is an incredibly kind person and she provided us with a lot of helpful information on the sights and activities in the area. The place was clean and the sofa comfortable. Also, the breakfast provided is really good! The location is perfect for people wanting to see Hobbiton and Rotorua.

  • Really nice place to stay around Rotorua, very clean and Marg is very helpfull!! Loved the mancave and the tranquillity! I would recommend it to anybody who wants to visit Rotorua!

    Rotorua, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

    Freshly renovated self-contained unit, in a semi rural setting. The unit is on a 2 acre block, and set well back off the road. Approx 15-20 mins drive from city centre and adjacent to Lake Rotorua. Open plan kitchenette, dining and sleeping area. Separate bathroom with toilet, shower and vanity. Self check in option, with lockbox. Ranch-slider opens to a covered deck area and faces onto native plantings providing privacy. Uncovered personal parking area close to entry.
    This open plan room is spacious and sunny, with air conditioning if required. It faces onto large park-like grounds, situated on part of a 2 acre block. The owners live in the house adjacent, but you have complete privacy and independence if this is your wish.
    We have lived in Hamurana for 5 years, and loved the area so much we decided to buy here in March 2018. We are set well back off the road, and the area is safe, secure and extremely peaceful. The most noise will usually be the many birds around, (and the local chickens). We may have to mow the lawns occasionally though! You only have to walk up the drive, and across the road, and you are right on the lake edge.
  • We stayed at Lee’s unit for 3 nights and have nothing to fault it. It was super clean, beds soft, plenty of power outlets, kitchen was well stocked, and having the dishwasher made us feel confident dishes were cleaned (as Lee suggest to all guest to use dishwasher). Location was peaceful and relaxing. A big plus was the extra towels that we could take out of unit to be used for swimming or going to the Polynesian spa. Thanks so much for your wonderful hospitality Lee. We will definetly stay again :)

  • Lee is a fountain of knowledge regarding the area and super personable. (Also an amazing photographer) The unit is clean, tidy and well kept. Super close to the lake and only a 5 minute drive to the local dairy and some takeaway. The only thing to mention is... be aware of the neighbors goat... he stares! Haha ;)

    Dani2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lee’s place was absolutely wonderful - spacious, new, clean, private & quiet. Just cross the street for a leisure walk along the lake. To top that up, she was very thoughtful, warm & swift in responses. It was a lovey touch that bread, condiments & drinks were provided. Would recommend anyone else to book their stay here at Rotorua.

  • Hi Lee and Paul, When my country and relatives were attacked by the new coronavirus pneumonia, and we felt deeply exhausted, it was your warm care and thoughtful care that gave us a warm home. This home is spacious and bright, clean and tidy, warm and comfortable, and the surrounding environment is quiet and beautiful, allowing us to cultivate our bodies and minds, watching the natural beauty of the nearby wonderland, and unforgettable life in the next period. Through the Internet, relatives in the distance have also shared the beautiful scenery of ROTORUA and our happiness in this sweet hut. Thank you for such thoughtful arrangements and meticulous care. We have been in New Zealand for more than two months and have stayed at several homestays and guesthouses, but your lodge is the best at ROTORUA, your hospitality is the best, and ROTORUA's natural scenery is the best, for you like! I will recommend ROTORUA and your cabin to friends and relatives, and we will take the time to visit again and again, there will be a period later! Thank you for all! Li Wenchao and Yang Qingxin are from China February 14, 2020

  • We enjoyed a very relaxing week in this quiet and nice cottage! It is located close to Ngongotaha (5 mins drive), but surrounded by nature, hammock included. We had everything we need, stunning sunsets also, and our lovely hosts took care of us very well and even provided extra toys for our boy. Would definitely come again.

    Christine2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had the priviledge to stay in this beautiful, cosy and very welcoming cottage for almost a week in Febr 2020. Not only is the host Corrine and her family very friendly, and welcoming the cottage itself was just perfect for the 4 of us. Beautiful setting and lovely for the boys to be able to feed the sheep and cows and laze around in the hammock during the day. Easy drive to Roturua and nearby attractions and as easy to stay at home in this beautiful cottage! Thank you so much, would highly reccomend this cottage and hosts.

    Nico2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Airbnb was a great place to stay with everything we needed. Our hosts were so sweet and greeted us at the cottage after we checked in, and left us plums from the orchard and local beer in the fridge which was a lovely surprise. The cottage is an easy drive from the attractions in rotorua (geysers, redwood forest, Polynesian spa, etc) and about an hour from hobbiton. Corrine really made us feel welcome and we had a great stay.

    Gillian2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible quiet country location, so relaxed while only a short drive to central Rotorua. We loved the beautiful garden, the local farmyard animal neighbours and the local beers and coffee. Corrine is such a friendly host and we hope to come back again!

    Jenny2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • I have 3 small children and she was so accommodating. My kids loved the animals and the bedroom cubby! The quiet location was everything we were looking for. We can’t wait to come back and stay again! She is fabulous and the house is adorable, highly recommended!!
