Wytchwood Lake House is steps away from the lake edge - just follow the wide garden path down to the water. It is comfortably furnished, with a warm, cosy fire in winter and doors opening onto both front and back decks for summer. The sheltered back deck overlooking the garden is great for outdoor dining, while the expansive front deck overlooks the ever changing moods of Lake Rotorua, great sunsets and night views of the city lights. The property is 20 mins from the city, down a shared drive.

Geraldine is a lovely “hostess with the mostest” - especially her breakfasts! Lovely lake views, kayaking, sunsets and gardens. Great place to stay if you’re visiting the Rotorua area!

Hi Jane and Michael, so glad you got to kayak with the swans. It has a different feeling/perspective when you are out on the lake looking back, so quiet and still. Thanks for your comments and enjoy the rest of your time here.

Geraldine’s lake house was one of our favorite places to stay during our two-week road trip in New Zealand! Perfect place to stop off and rest for 2 nights before continuing on our journey. Her house was quiet and comfortable, and had everything we needed: washer/dryer, WiFi, e…

Wytchwood Lake House is located in a tranquil, quiet setting with great views across the lake towards Rotarua. The location works best for those with a car (which we had). Geraldine left many personal touches around the property- fresh flowers in vases, fruit and croissants for…

I had an amazing time at Geraldine's. It was so restful and relaxing with the only sounds usually the birds and the lapping water of the lake. Great location for me, quiet and private but just a short drive to Rotorua. A few more degrees warmer, I would have taken a kayak out. …

Hey Karen, it was lovely chatting to you and I'm glad your stay was relaxing and restful. Thanks so much for the orange dressing/salad recipe. When people ask about it, which I'm sure they will do, they will be told, it's 'Karen's recipe'! :-) You are welcome to visit again if you are ever back this way. Safe travelling.

Such a quiet space with the lights of Rotorura twinkling across the bay at night. The stars were brilliant, the waters lovely and blue. A natural setting, yet minutes from the attractions of Rotarura. We loved our time at this lovely lake house and recommend it for anyone seeking…

Hi Margaret, thanks for your comments. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and the surrounding natural beauty. The fire is great in winter, but come again in summer and sit on the deck and watch the sun set over the lake, just magic! :-) Safe travels, G.

Hi again Tim and thanks for your encouraging feedback. I'm sorry we didn't end up meeting, but I'm glad your luggage found you! Thanks too for your comment about the fan. It's something I have never thought of, but certainly helpful - I'm onto it! Enjoy NZ.

Gorgeous place away from the sulphur smell of Rotorua. It is right by the lake and you can see the lake and the swans swimming right from the living room! The house is very tastefully done and Geraldine made sure we had everything we would need. Thanks for being a thoughtful ho…

Hi, I enjoy using Airbnb when I travel and I am enjoying hosting here in NZ. I know what I appreciate when I stay at a property and I hope to provide the same for you. Reflecting in the quiet moments at our lake house feeds my soul. I hope it does for you too.
