We live in a cosy home surrounded by a well-established garden in a quiet neighborhood.. Our home has a relaxed creative vibe where adventures on our local mountain bike trails are re-lived throughout the week. The bedroom is built on the sunny side of the house and overlooks a lush garden. Dine inside or out listening to your favorite tunes on a Wifi sound system. To add a King room that sleeps a couple see our other listing for this house.

The space

With Rotorua being the home of Crankworx we are centrally located between both the famous Whakarewarewa Forest [Redwoods] mountain bike and Skyline Gravity mountain bike trails. A large garage, which is alarmed at all times, can be used by guests to store sporting equipment, excess luggage etc. We are a short five minute drive to the center of town if you want to visit some hot pools.

Guest access

As a guest you are welcome to use the kitchen, lounge, dining (inside and out), bathroom and garage.

Interaction with guests

We love meeting people and look forward to sharing stories over a cup of tea or a glass of wine. As a guest we would like you to make yourself at home and enjoy your time in Rotorua. We can share with you our own experiences here, and provide information on the multitude of ways to immerse yourself in our distinctive culture. We both work weekdays but look forward to meeting our guests in the evenings to hear about your adventures here in Aotearoa

Other things to note

We are happy to recommend our favorite restaurants and local "to do's". We may even have time in our busy schedule to show any mountain bikers staying with us our favorite trails. Creatives will also enjoy exchanging artistic ideas ,experiences and a love of art. The room has a compendium with maps and a wide variety of information for travelers to Rotorua and places of interest nearby.

We didn't spend a ton of time and Claire's and missed out on the complimentary breakfast that I think would have been a great treat but Claire and Murray's home is an amazing place. Claire is an incredibly talented artist and her house is clean and set up with the same attention to detail as her paintings, so absolutely the code, creative hub she advertised. We really felt like valued guests and their dining recommendations were awesome. Will definitely stay here again if we return to Rotorua! Thanks!

I’ve been only one night at Claire’s place but enough to say that the place is great and the host is superb. Room with nice views of the garden, being woke up by the birds, amazing neighborhood but I have to highlight how confortable was the bed and the breakfast, not usual at airbnb. Definitely a place ro recommend and come back ! Thank you Claire for your time and tips :)))

Claire and Murray are brilliant hosts and have a lovely home. The bed we stayed in was so cosy we struggled getting out of it on a morning. However we had a delicious breakfast waiting for us, a warm fire and lovely peaceful background music which set us up for the day. Claire's little touches really made a big difference and we really enjoyed our 4 days in Rotorua knowing we had a warm and friendly place to return to each evening. Would highly recommend.
