Don and Sue are excellent and friendly hosts, with plenty of local information provided. Their home is warm, comfortable and perfectly located for walking to the rugby stadium. A bit further for the city centre but easy to find your way around. Thank you both for a lovely stay. Alan and Jane

Nice quiet home in a fairly central suburb of Rotorua. Don and Sue are very welcoming and pleasant to talk to, have a well trained and friendly dog, and provided a great breakfast each morning. They have another long-term student guest who seemed nice but I hardly saw, although we did share a bathroom. Would certainly look to stay with them again if I were to visit Rotorua in the future.

Don and Sue are true super hosts!! From the very first communication to the farewell on the last day, everything was spot on for us!!! Very lovely home with lots of light, a very nice garden area at the back and Louis the super friendly laid-back dog. A true Kiwi home stay!!! Both Don & Sue were always keen to share their special places to visit in and around Rotorua. It felt like we left as family. Full use of kitchen, outdoor area and gas BBQ. A perfect home away from home. We loved every minute of our stay!!!!

Sue and Don are excellent hosts. They have a spacious lovely house with a garden. Our room has invited us for a very good slip. Sue made sure we had options for our breakfast and helped us to get to the Inter City bus on time. We have had a great stay and recommend to everyone.

Don and Sue Gunn have lived in Rotorua for over 12 years and love it! There's so much to do here and we love going for walks and cycling in the Redwoods. In the summer, we spend a lot of time at one of the many lakes in Rotorua. Sue is Marketing Manager at Waiariki Institute of Technology and Don has his own business- Rotorua SuperPasses which offer a wide range of sightseeing options for Rotorua. He can help you arrange your activities in Rotorua. We have a friendly Springer Spaniel called Louis who loves people - especially if they take him for a walk! We look forward to welcoming you to our Glenholme Garden Retreat.
