The Double bedroom contains a double bed and if required a single bed if there are 3 people.The name of the room was named after a haka or war dance our very own national icons the All Blacks rugby team performed during the 2011 Rugby World when the room first went up on this site.So be prepared to be bored to tears by our rugby mad father best advice "love the All Blacks" and pretend your interested haha...

The outlook of the house is onto a beautiful park reserve, which borders onto a trout stream. There is also a lovely scenic walk to Lake Rotorua. If you are lucky, you might even run into Temuera Morrison, one of our fav sons and actors!
We are located close to Gondalas and many tourists attractions.We also have an extensive range of pamphlets and books on many of these attractions.If it is a maori experience you'd like we can arrange for you to see an unique hangi and concert. We are a young maori family and is Connor, 22, who is letting out his room to help pay for all his top level NZ sporting committments . All of our children have left home although you might get to meet our two grandchildren who sometimes visit. Connor now lives in Hamilton because of his hockey, so most correspondence is now with Mum Heni.
We are enriched in Maori history and mum is a part time guide at our local museum so a personal tour is on offer if she isnt working and are able to offer any advice on the history of Rotorua. We find this unique and many visitors enjoy this intimacy with our culture.
