Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A quiet, relaxed stay with Heni and Stu. who make very good, welcoming hosts to their home.

    We enjoyed their company and getting a feel for their life in Rotorua. We had a chance to chat and enjoy the area.

  • Very nice place to stay! Close to the city and all interesting attractions. Henni and Stu were great hosts and could recommend many interesting things. Nice to have had breakfast as an addition, the shared bath was not a problem.

  • We had a great time in Rotorua. The house is very well located and our daughter was very happy to use all the kids toys.

  • We had a nice stay with the Herewini family.
    Heni was very helpful and it was very interesting to get to know some of their culture.
    The room as well as the house were clean and comfortable.
    Moreover, we really enjoyed spending time with their lovely dog Peaches.

    March 2014
  • We had a wonderful time! The room had a ton of books and brochures to reference, we got to chat over breakfast with Stu, Heni and the other airbnb guest, and Heni gave us restaurant recommendations. We would definitely recommend.

    February 2014
  • Heni and Stu were great hosts, and we very much enjoyed our stay with them. Heni was very helpful in alerting us to activities in the area. Without her, we would have missed an amazing free concert that is held just once a year in Rotorua. Their grandchildren were visiting, and we enjoyed talking with them as well, feeling like part of the family. Their dog, Peaches, is quite amazing. We have never seen a dog as well trained. We highly recommend their home as a base from which to experience both the rich cultural heritage of Rotorua and the warmth of Maori family life.

    February 2014
  • Connor wasn't around when we stayed at the house, but his mom Heni and other family members were great hosts (the dog was adorable and friendly, too). Everything was clean and tidy and comfortable, and we were surprised with breakfast in the morning. The room is a little cramped for three adults + luggage, but it still worked out well for us. Thanks for a great stay!

    February 2014
