Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
We'd love to host you in our peaceful, fully self-contained guest cottage at Lake Rotorua! This light & airy holiday-house has everything you need including full cooking facilities (stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, utensils), all linen, washing machine and free fast wifi (NO extra cleaning or linen fees are added onto price). Less than 10 minutes into Rotorua and all the geothermal & other tourist attractions.
Note: this neighbourhood does NOT have the famous Rotorua sulphur smell :)

The space
Your wonderful, amazingly comfortable queen size bed (soft yet firm) looks out to Mount Ngongotaha from a fresh naturally-lit bedroom.
Each room has heaters and electric blankets available for cool nights, and fans for in the Summer. In addition all windows and doors on both sides of the cottage allow for fresh cooling breezes to flow through in Summer and there are window-screens on several windows to prevent bugs from coming in.
The living area is sunny and contains a sofa that could be reconfigured should you have an extra guest (3rd child or short adult which allows for 5 guests total).
The bunkroom is very compact but easily sleeps two children (but might be a little cramped for an adult over 6ft) - please check the photos closely.
[We can provide an extra single mattress and linen for a $45/night additional charge]
As noted above, we do NOT add an additional cleaning charge to our nightly rate as most other hosts in this area do.
This is a very safe area although we recently added a security camera on the driveway for your peace-of-mind,
***In addition to being Superhosts for 3 consecutive years, in 2020 we were assessed by Airbnb and passed their 'Airbnb-Verified' audit***

Where you’ll be

Rotorua, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

We are located one minute from the cute village of Ngongotaha should you need to pop out for anything, visit a cafe, get gas/petrol, takeaway food or necessities at the local 'Four Square'. There is a kids playground 5 minutes walk away.
Five minutes away are the well-known Waititi trout stream and Ngongotaha stream - guests who have brought their fishing gear have caught amazing trout there! (Fishing licences are available from the Holiday Park up the road)
Great swimming in our shallow sandy-bottomed lake - lots of our guests take advantage of this!
Only three minutes drive to the well-known Agrodome sheep and sheepdog adventure! Three minutes in the other direction is the famous 'Zorb'.

During your stay

We live on the property, our main house is 20 metres from your guest cottage; so it's no problem if you forgot something or have a question.
The main house is lakeside so you will have access to our beach on beautiful Lake Rotorua, the cottage itself has a mountain view.
Ask about pets - we're open to you bringing a special furry friend -contact us to check.
We do like to chat and greet our guests soon after arrival so we know whom we are sharing our property with, rather than being anonymous (we had an introverted couple stay who didn't like that)
