Lake Rotorua -
Have a hot spa by the lakeside and relax after your busy day of travels and activities in a part of Rotorua reserved for the lucky few!
This is an absolute lakefront lodge in an idyllic quiet location in a private, peaceful and secluded residential area away from the tourist path.
This will most definitely be one of the highlights of your trip!
We are located 8Km's away from Rotorua with only fresh lake air and none of the nasty sulphur smells,
This house has been totally redecorated in pleasing neutral tones,
A very large living area opening out onto an extensive lakeside deck with a spa pool, large BBQ and outdoor seating for 8.
This house has 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
2 Bedrooms have panoramic views of the lake.
The lounge also has a very large window seat with sweeping 180 degree views of the lake, the perfect location to relax with a good book and a glass of wine.
The main bedroom has a super king bed which can also be made up into twin beds on request.
This room has a brand new ensuite and a Digital TV and Sky included.
6 bedrooms are available for comfortable sleeping for 12 people in real beds.
This is a large spacious property which has now become available as a holiday home and although it has lots of bedrooms we would prefer a maximum of 8 people, larger or smaller groups can be considered on an individual basis.
The absolute bonus with this house is the bedrooms are on one side of the house which allows for night owls to enjoy a later bedtime with no disturbance to the early birds, the early birds can get up and away early and not disturb the night owls.
This is a very quiet residential area so please bring your toys but no noisy jet skis.
There are Kayaks, Life jackets and Mountain Bikes for you to enjoy.
We have a garage which is a secure area to lock away your bikes etc.
We prefer you to supply your own linen but linen is available for hire at an additional cost of $10.00 per person.
The house is also located approximately 1 Km away from Ngongotaha village which offers a fantastic eclectic mix of Eateries, Cafe's, A Grocery store, Bottle stores and a Sports Bar if a real retreat from the hustle and bustle is what you are looking for.
I am happy to help in anyway I can to plan your activities and schedules for your visit to Rotorua please just ask?
Private transport can be arranged too including transfers from the Airport and Bus Terminal or other locations in town.
As this is an extremely quiet location it is important to ensure that we can't make outside noise after 10pm and create any sort of disturbance to the neighbours,
If however you are looking for a break away from the rat race and the demands of a busy life then the slower pace and landscape beauty of Rotorua won't come any better than this!
Our host Karen was fantastic. She met us at the house and made us completely at home and made us feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, she provided extra bikes for our family so we could all go for a bike ride. Some basics supplies in fridge and cupboard we were welcome to use as well. Extra towels left in hall for use in spa. On arrival, the spa had been warmed up ready to use with clean water. The beds were comfortable and good quality linen, hotel quality. The bathrooms had supplies, big bottles of shampoo and conditioner, soap, etc. Karen was the perfect host/agent, and this was a fantastic stay for our family - thankyou.
Karen was welcoming from start to end! The place was extremely comfortable and a haven for relaxation and peace. The views over the lake were wonderful, changing with the weather moods each day. Lovely place to stay I would recommend it to any group wishing to explore, relax and enjoy the fascinating area around Rotorua.
Beautiful house in perfect location with incredible views and hot tub! Kelly was friendly and flexible - responding quickly to our ever changing plans! House has everything you would ever need. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend!
Karen was so great to deal with, from the first immediate response and continuously as we planned our trip. The house was perfect, great for our family of 8, and the view of the lake was stunning. The spa was a great addition for our winter getaway, and it was really nice to have it all ready to go when we arrived - not to mention the bottles of wine! We had such a great family celebration, all thanks for Karen and her hospitality. Thank you!
It was a beautiful lodge, set within a picturesque neighbourhood that faces a lake. The place was indeed as good as described on the website, and my family and I very much enjoyed our stay there. Karen was a good host, and her cheerful demeanour made the very nice lodge and even more welcoming place for a holiday.
This is a beautiful lodge, set on the edge of the lake, area is a straight drive into town.
We were late arriving and the house was very welcoming with lights on.
Absolutely everything was provided, we had a wonderful weekend and are highly like to return.
We had a wonderful, relaxing time in Rotorua! We loved the comfortable bedrooms, living areas, and kitchen with all of the things we needed to cook and BBQ while we were there. The beautiful views from the patio and hot tub were amazing! Very nice to have kayaks and bicycles to use as well. Highly recommend it!!

Foodies most welcome and the wine rack will be waiting accompanied by all sorts of organic produce from our home gardens in season.
Please don't hesitate to ask if there's anything special you would like done or if you have a special desire while you are in Rotorua...magic happens in this gorgeous place all the time.
I am happy to come and pick you or your family/group up from the airport or bus station :)
