If you are looking for a calm, elegant and generous place with an astonishing view on a marvelous lake with the most helpful host and the most comfortable beds, you just found it ! Our two days in company of Leigh and Mike belongs to our best memories of our New Zealand Trip, also because they served us the most delicious dinners. A place that deserves every penny you pay for !

Others have said it, but it's true: you feel like you've walked onto the set of a Architecture Digest shoot. The property is exquisite. Leigh is a pro, and a perfect host with exceptional tastes. She has a wonderful sense of humor and fun to be around. She's also full of wonderful local information and ready to share her contacts and connections to enliven your trip. And bring you appetite for breakfast -- she doesn't hold back.

A stunning home in a peaceful and scenic location. Leigh has the home set up with everything a guest could want and it was a pleasure to meet her and share her home for a quiet 3-day retreat. The walk around Lake Okareka was a highlight, so many waterbirds and resting places to be at peace with the landscape and take in the scenic countryside. This stay was a highlight of my visit to the North Island.

La région de Rotorua est un incontournable lorsque l'on visite la Nouvelle-Zélande et l'Ile du Nord. Mais plutôt que de loger à Rotorua même il faut s'en éloigner de quelques kilomètres pour découvrir ce lodge d'un charme fou, posé sur une petite péninsule du lac Okareka, avec une vue à 360°. La rénovation est très récente, la décoration est splendide et l'accueil de Leigh, aux petits soins avec ses hôtes, tout à fait remarquable. On se sent comme chez soi ! Une adresse que vous n'êtes pas près d'oublier !!!
