Sandi is a great host....she is a fountain of knowledge about Rotorua and all its attractions...she gave us a coupon for 10% off at one of the attractions. She made a great recommendation for a spa and gave us good advice on how to use our limited time in the area to the best advantage. Sandi is friendly and warm and will do anything to make you comfortable. We arrived late and hungry with a can of soup and some bread in our suitcase. Sandi took the soup and warmed it up in her kitchen and brought us bowls for the soup and butter for our bread. The room was clean and comfortable...perhaps a bit dated, but that just added to the charm. The garden and pool area were inviting and she invited us to pick delicious blackberries from the vines climbing the fence. Her delicious breakfast is made from fresh ingredients and served right when you ask for it. There is some road noise, but it is minimal.
Sandi is an AMAZING Host! Nothing is too much trouble. From the very warm welcome we first received we were made to feel like we were on holiday and told to relax. Breakfast was totally delicious and filling for the whole day. The comfy beds and clean rooms with super powerful shower were excellent value, there is also a pool and garden, wifi and parking. Sandi apologised for any road noise but this didn't bother us during our stay xx Thank you Sandi!
Sandi's house was sooooo nice and welcoming,she gave us all the best feelings of a family. Her house is fabulous, the decoration is amazing, quite like a indoor garden!!! It is worth to mention Sandi's special homemade breakfast is fantastic! Healthy but very tasty, it is the best breakfast we had in this journey! We only stayed one night at Sandi's house, but me and my BF have the same opinion, which is we should get another opportunity to come back to this house,staying more than one day in here, cause it is so attractive! :)
everything was spot on! Right from the room to food to the warmth exuded by Sandi!
Her recommendation for the evening on the town for a short stay proved invaluable!
location was also convenient.
overall a 10/10 for us!
Sandi was super friendly and nice. Room was clean and a small garden nice for our small daughter to run around and chase her cats. Sandi kindly shared a map and recommended child friendly spa outside town. Breakfast was superb, prepared from fresh ingredients. Slight road noise due to closeness to a busy road though on the other hand, we were promptly on our way in and out.
We had a wonderful stay with Sandi and Mark. We spent two nights and they were the best hosts; nothing was too much trouble. Mark kindly drove us into town for dinner and on the way he gave us a tour of Rotorua and pointed out places to visit. We didn't expect this at all so thank you Mark. Sandi went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. She is a very warm and welcoming person. She cooks a beautiful breakfast that keeps you going for hours! My husband was very impressed! The cabin was out the back next to the pool and was beautiful. It was quiet, comfortable and very roomy and we had everything we needed. We loved the garden and pool area; it had lots of plants and quirky little bits and pieces that created a tranquil feeling. It definitely has a home away from home feel. If we visit Rotorua again we will be back.
Sandi was a fabulous hostess - full of character and fun. The absolute antithesis of a dull hotel experience. Our self-contained garden suite was clean and comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Sandi had kindly booked us a hangi at Te Puia and - when the pick up failed to arrive - she sorted the problem for us with a minimum of fuss.
She's great fun!
