Our stay with Roger and Katz was very nice. The place was extremely clean and comfortable. Katz is great in the kitchen and prepared the most delicious Asian breakfast. Their place is conveniently located to the city and had a lovely view. Roger help to book our Hangi. I would recommend their place.

The location being on the the lake and the room both were great. The room was very nice and clean. Roger & Catherine were excellent and most friendly hosts who really assisted us in every possible manner ... Roger even took me for a 3 hour walk into the red ceader forest. We highly recommend their BnB

Catherine and Roger were perfect hosts!! The accommodation is located ideally on the lake shore and we even enjoyed a stroll on the lake with their double kayak. It is very close from town center by car. The room is very comfortable and has all you need. It is very very clean and neat!! The breakfast is a real plus, cooked with care, it was excellent and hearty. Catherine and Roger gave us a really warm welcome and were very friendly hosts. Highly recommended!!!
Charming couple, lovely space, gorgeous views. All in all, an excellent stay with excellent people. As Rotorua has so many things to see and do, they have the experience and knowledge to ensure you don't try to squeeze too much into your days. So if you are looking for a comfortable and lovely space to stay in around Rotorua, stay here.
Had a wonderful stay with Roger and Catherine - very welcoming, friendly and helpful with great suggestions for things to see and do - particularly given our time was limited and it was raining. The included breakfast was an awesome start to a big day of sightseeing. The bedding was super comfy and the suite had plenty of room on the sofa bed for our two kids. The ensuite was a good size, excellent water temp and pressure. Nice modern and new decor and lovely high quality linen. We were able to be as private or as social as we wanted with a great little deck and separate entrance to the suite from the main home. Location is very close to town and close to heaps of local attractions. The home itself backs directly onto the lake with a lovely little beach with families of swans and ducks paddling past. The only problem we had was that we couldn't stay longer! Will definitely return next time we head to nz and stay much longer! Very highly recommended!
Roger and Katherine were absolutely wonderful hosts. We got to spend a fair bit of time with them learning about them and the local culture. You have access to some really nice lake views from the common areas of their house. The daily breakfast they offer was yummy. They were also very generous offering us rides in the city.
Roger and Catherine were the most welcoming hosts while I was staying in Rotorua. The room was newly built impeccably outfitted with a great bedroom and private bathroom. The room was well furnished with a very comfortable bed, fridge, couch, table, wardrobe. It really was hotel quality standard. Even the little touches like leaving milk in the fridge and fruit on the table weren't forgotten that make you feel that little bit more special.
Also included was the most amazing breakfast, the first morning I had a continental style breakfast that was perfect, and I decided on a full cooked breakfast the morning I left - both were exceptional and I again felt quite spoilt!
I'll definitely recommend Koutu Beach to friends and family - it's definitely the best Airbnb I've stayed at to date, and I think it'll be difficult to surpass.
Roger and Catherine were such AMAZING hosts! First, the room that they had prepared was immaculate and super comfortable. But even better, they were just such hospitable people who went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. They helped us plan out our trip, and Roger took us on a thorough tour of Rotorua where we saw the hot springs, many of the surrounding lakes, Maori neighborhoods, the city centre, etc. Couldn't recommend them more! Oh, and the breakfast was Delicious!
We had a great stay with Roger and Catherine. The location of the B&B is a dream - the lake view from the garden/private beach is divine. Our room was tastefully decorated, impeccably clean and equipped with all things necessary (coffee and tea facilities, mini fridge, hair dryer etc) and even the pull out sofa was comfortable. The bathroom is very modern and the shower big with strong water pressure. Loved it! The rooms have a separate entrance from a little porch where you can chill out. Breakfast was enough to feed an army, try the Nasi Goreng option!
Roger and his spouse are very hospitable and friendly. Roger took us around town and we went out with the couple in the evening. If you like to socialize a lot with your hosts, this is the right place to stay in Rotorua.
Roger and Katherine were great hosts, it was more like staying with friends than in a b and b.
they shared their home with us and our two year old, took us to the night market and also on a run
Nasi Goreng for breakfast was delicious, a great change from the usual fri up
the room was large and very well presented
