We love Lynmore! It is green, lush and dedicated to outdoor living. Having the Redwoods and the Blue/Green lakes in the neighbourhood encourages us to get out and get active.
Excellent bus service into town.

We really enjoyed this little hideaway in Rotorua. Upstairs was very cosy and had everything we needed. Even though our hosts were away they made themselves available via phone if we needed anything and were very responsive on the few occasions we contacted them. This is a great place to stay for a couple. It is away from the noise of the city but close enough to get to anywhere you need to go around the place. Chloe and Andy offered a number of suggestions for places to go and the ones we visited were spot on.
Chloe and Andy made our stay an absolute breeze. Their home is well equipped, has excellent heating and a very comfy bed. The provided breaky was a bonus. Thanks to Andy for meeting us on arrival and Chloe for all of the great tips on exploring the Rotorua region, we really enjoyed our visit to Mitai, strolling the Redwoods and the sweet treats at Cake Mistress just down the road :)
This studio was amazing and so homely. Only a 5 minute drive from town so very convenient. The bed was fantastic and the kitchen had everything needed. We actually didn't want to leave and would have extended our stay if possible. We met Chloe who was so helpful with tips of what to do and see. She was very friendly and welcoming and my only regret is that we didn't spend more time with her and Andy but it was a busy few days. Would recommend staying here to anyone!
Our hosts Andy and Chloe were very kind and accommodating to our postponed arrival. We didn't get a chance to meet Chloe in person but Andy was very welcoming and gave us a great tour of the space. The loft itself was fantastic and I was sad to leave. It was a great value and the breakfast/kitchenette set up was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Rotorua!
If you enjoy trail running or hiking, you'll love how close this place is to the Redwoods. Lovely place. Plenty of privacy. And so thankful our hosts turned on the heater before we arrived. Cold night! Also yummy breakfast treats.
The loft is warm and cosy and well equipped with breakfast supplies. Chloe and Andy live in a lovely quiet spot- from the loft you will wake up to trees and sky, 15 minutes walk to the Redwoods forest where we lost ourselves for a happy half-day - a must for walkers and mountain bikers! Chloe and Andy were super welcoming hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay run smoothly, picking us up and dropping us off in town with our bags and being beyond patient when we had difficulty contacting them without a phone (be careful relying on free wifi in Rotorua!).
The little house is so cute, very clean and we really felt like home there. Chloe and Andy were very nice and easy to communicate with! The things for breakfast were awesome!! Thanks for three perfect nights!

About the Host, Chloe And Andy
My partner and I returned to NZ a year ago, after living in London for the last 7 years. During this time we made the most of the endless travel opportunities - meeting some incredible people and soaking up the culture along the way.
We are now a family of four and are the very proud parents of our two little boys. We are now enjoying being back at home and enjoying all that Rotorua has to offer. Having the Redwood forest on our door step is amazing! A walk, a run or a bike ride is so much fun and the access we have here in unbelievable.
