Places to stay in Rotoma
Surrounded by native bush and native bird songs, this very private property has breathtaking views of Lake Rotoma. Its 4 minutes from Soda Springs mineral hot pools and 30min from Rotorua Lake Districts where you find wonders like the Buried Village and the Redwood Forest. This proberty is simply stunning. 1 double bedroom and a sofa couch avalible.
You have the entire cosy and clean house all to yourself, inc laundry, heating, tv, bbq and dishwasher. The drive way is a sharp and steep climb coming from Rotorua, on the right. It's not possible to turn up from that side of the road. . You will find a turning bay further up the road on the left.. there you need to turn around and head back towards Rotorua.. then straight up the driveway of 215 on the left.
This is leased land. A nature reserve of sorts. Very few houses here, just plenty of native bush and peaceful moments to enjoy. Neighbours can not be seen from this place, but state highway 30 offers a gentle reminder that you are still connected to civilisation.
  • Would highly recommend. Stunning setting, beautiful place.

  • If you are in this area and can stay at this place I suggest you book it ASAP before some one else does. The views are amazing and the house is lovely and there is no one else in sight. Perfect.

    Leo2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is sensational. If you're after a serene, quiet location, lathered in nature with some epic lake views thrown on top, this is your go to. The house is super clean and functional and as long as you have a car, everything's within reasonable distance. Highly recommend.

  • Kirsten’s place has a lovely, serene vibe. We greatly enjoyed our stay here and spent long nights relaxing on the deck, overlooking the lake.

    Kyle2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place. The views across the lake are breathtaking. Place is clean, modern and spacious, much bigger than expected. Had everything we needed, good shower, all kitchen amenities and an oven. No issues with check in and quick responses from Kirsten. No wifi. Great location, 10 minutes into next town for a supermarket. And gas station 2 minutes away. Great base for exploring, we went upto Matamata and down to Taupo. Only issue we had was the drive was very steep, sharp and tight. We parked on the road next to the house. Overall though we had a great stay and would stay again.

    Adnan2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay and base yourself and family from. Plenty of parking spaces. Beautiful home and very clean inside an out. Our host Dale made it easy for us to stay in touch with him and was on hand if we needed to know anything about his place or the area. There is wifi here, which was a god send! Our phones had no signal in the area. House has everything you want and need in a home. Five star stay for my family and I. My one year old loved the property also! Thank you Dale

  • Accommodation was excellent, clean and tidy. Cosy place for the whole family to stay. Kitchen items were all very clean and new. We all enjoyed the Xbox that kept us entertained for the whole night. There is a little en-suite room behind the garage for a family of 4 to sleep in. The Only con was no wifi for that room. Apart from that everything was good. Host was nice to call in to check on us on our first day. :)

    Rotoma, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

    Located in the heart of Lake Rotoma, close to Cafe , boat ramp & service station. One of only a few properties on the lake side. 20 minutes from Rotorua & 40 minutes from Whakatane.
    Good size 4 bedroom Bach, with spa pool, lots of board games & DVD library for the times that you are not enjoying the lake or surrounding bush walks, mountain bike tracks or exploring Rotorua or Whakatane.
  • An absolutely gorgeous, peaceful spot. The house is well equipped and the spa a lifesaver for tired legs. We loved sitting outside catch the sun. Will be back!

    Rotoma, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

    Here's your typical Kiwi bach (red) right across the road from beautiful Lake Rotoma just 45ks from both Rotorua & Whakatane. This is a light and tidy space with great views from the kitchen, lounge & front deck. Great swimming in summer. There are 2 double bedrooms with queen beds. The on-site manager (me or a family member) will often be there in a separate room way down the back of the site. However, your privacy is assured. See you soon.
    Yourr bedroom is spacious, light and warm. Luggage rack supplied. Comfortable queen-sized bed. All linen supplied.
    Lake Rotoma is a small laid back community with a cafe, fish and chip shop and g.a.s. station. A safe neighbourhood. Everyone looks out for each other. I have permanent residents living each side of me.
  • Nice quiet place right by the lake with great views. There's quite a few animals lingering around the property (chicks, cats a dog) but they're all friendly. We had a very comfortable stay and it was a bonus having air conditioning on such a hot weekend. We'd love to stay again.

    Simon & Sophia2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved this relaxing escape after a long day of sight seeing and exploring! It was fun to meet the host Jonnie as she is the sweetest + most welcoming. We felt right at home in her little lake oasis with all the amenities we needed—relaxing on the beach right near the house, having happy hour on the porch as we watched the sunset, meeting some friendly neighborhood cats + chickens + chicks, and cooking up some yummy food in the well equipped kitchen. Will not forget this place!

    Emily2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend. Perfect spot to enjoy the lake and excellent host.

    Donna2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • A really great little bach with all the conveniences one needs. Very thoughtful touches to enhance your stay above the average. Would recommend this gem to all.

    Diana2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful stylish home & great location! The perfect base for our getaway adventure

    Huibrid2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jonnie has a beautiful, warm, welcoming lakehouse that had everything we could have needed. Beautiful, modern space, comfortable and warm, and we would certainly return! Thanks so much!

    Rotoma, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

    The good old 'kiwi bach'. Its rustic with no dishwasher, microwave, limited cell phone reception, board games, puzzles & books & set amongst NZ native bush. It has everything you need to take a break from life. Native birds, trees, the odd spider (nothing poisonous in NZ) & a lake view, we think, is what it's all about. It has two bedrooms & sleeps a max of 5. Workable kitchen, log fire, tv & wifi. Soap, tea, coffee, toilet rolls & some cooking condiments included. Sheets & towels NOT provided
    Set in New Zealands native bush amongst the wood pigeons, tuis, bell birds, punga, Rewa Rewa, nikau palms and peacefulness the bush offers. There's a private beach across the road, 3min drive to the boat ramp & play ground. The township of Kawerau a 15min drive with supermarket and free heated swimming pools. Sadly, due to guests not leaving the property as they found it, we now charge a cleaning fee.
    Our Bach accommodation is up a steepish paved driveway, so you can get the great view. There are 5 other baches up the same driveway, although because of the bush, each has its own privacy.
  • Beautiful view over the lake in a classic kiwi bach/lake house. Nothing fancy but everything you could ever need for a relaxing holiday.

    Jono2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Worth every cent.....will be back!

  • Amazing view and lovely bungalow! We loved our stay there.

    Cornelia2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • LOVED the bach. An absolutely classic bach, down to the formica table! Exactly what we wanted to show the kids. If you are wanting a classic kiwi bach experience, this is it. Incredible view, much warmer than expected (we didn't need to light the fire at the end of April), and a real sun trap.

    Karen2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning views of the beautiful lake. Little beach front across the road. Rustic and "very Rotoma". No Bells or whistles, but who needs bells and whistles at a bach? Wifi worked really well, and as always, great not to have phone access.

    Annie2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • About 40 minutes out of Rotorua, but such a beautiful place! Perfect for a romantic getaway or a base for a group of friends. Gets you away from moderness. So good!

    Rotoma, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

    Beautiful Kiwi cottage is fully furnished and comfortable. There are books to read and games to play. Great for family time.A wood burner makes the house cosy in the winter. The kitchen has a microwave, stove, fridge and freezer etc Self check in with a lock box, making it easy and a stress free start to your holiday. Far enough away to get away from it all and not to far away to get stuck into all that the area has to offer. Great fishing on your door step too.
    Lake Rotoma is the best kept secret of all the lakes in the Rotorua District – its pristine waters offer excellent trout fishing all year round and great water sports in the summer . There is safe swimming on the main sandy beach with trees and tables for picnics. There are several water ski lanes around the lake. The nearest boat ramp is by the store, 1.5km away. The café is located 1.5km from the house and next to the local store which sells petrol, alcohol and general items. Kawerau is about 20 minutes drive with free hot pools in the town centre, Rotorua is 30 minutes and Whakatane about 40 minutes. Handy to all local attractions including shop, cafe, playground, boat ramp, artists' studios, soda springs and the magnificent safe and sandy swimming beaches of pristine Lake Rotoma.
  • A very enjoyable stay with the family in this listing. Spacious with some thoughtful touches that could be enjoyed by any family. Also a scenic location!!

We had been travelling with some items to be refrigerated and although the cabin doesn’t have a fridge they did let us use one in their house which was very sweet! It’s so nice to be in a place with such kind people!

It has a big open plan lounge, dining room, and kitchen. One of the sofas pulls out to make a double bed. I and my very big husband slept on it and we very much enjoyed waking to the view. Big windows with northeast views so you can sit and watch the sunset with your bottle or glass of whatever :-) The kitchen is very well equipped with a toaster, whistling kettle, nutribullet, microwave, juicer, rice cooker, yogurt maker, dishwasher, 6 burner gas hob, massive oven, and the fridge has an ice maker & filtered water.

Lake Rotoehu is a very safe and peaceful lake with minimal boats in summertime. For other lake options, you also have Lake Rotoma 5 minutes and Lake Rotoiti a 10-minute drive. If boating isn’t your thing you can head to the popular Waitangi Soda Hot Springs only a 3-minute drive down the road for a relaxing soak in the natural thermal pools. The local cafe Lake Rotoma is a 5-minute drive for casual dinner (seasonal hours) or a relaxed lunch with local dairy and gas station together with a liquor store. The surrounding area offers a wealth of activities from; bush walks, waterskiing, swimming, kayaking, mountain biking, motor cross, four-wheel driving or simply the solitude of fishing for rainbow trout. We have a great deal with Rotoiti Sports Club 10 minutes down the road, it has a gym, park and fields to exercise the dog :)
    Welcome to Lake Rotoehu! Our neighborhood is very quiet, to say the least. The rowdiest chirpers are the Tui and the Kereru. It's mainly holiday homes, lodges and very nice people indeed. Our home is only 400m from the lakes edge.
  • Quiet and spacious house, with amazing lake views

    Zanjiang2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

  • Maria Jose’s house is lovely and you’ll feel right at home. The other rooms are also rented out on Airbnb so you might make friends with the other guests, or keep to yourself if that suits you. We enjoyed using the kitchen and even though the house is on a busy main road there are sidewalks if you want to walk and use bus services, or you can park your car safely here. And it is only a couple minutes’ drive to the heart of town. Our room was clean and spacious and the bed is quite comfortable— we slept great here! I highly recommend this place!

    JUST LIKE GLAMPING only better! The Lake Room even has a "camping toilet". This space is suitable for one person with a comfy single bed. It's a warm and light room with a kitchenette set-up (toaster, kettle, single ceramic hob, heater or fan). Use the full bathroom inside the main house, my home. Work or dine at the big white table with 2 x chairs, an occasional chair, and a couch to relax in. Note - no microwave. Has security lighting, smoke alarm and plenty of secure off-road parking.
    Your space has power, comfortable single bed, big table and chairs, your own fridge, tea/coffee/toast making facilities (or take breakfast inside the main house). There is a laundromat just 12 minutes drive to the east in Kawerau (I-Site office, supermarket, library and the very popular free thermal swimming pool complex all in Kawerau).
    Lake Rotoma is a small laid back community with a cafe, fish and chip shop and g.a.s. station. A safe neighbourhood. Everyone looks out for each other. I have permanent residents living each side of me.
  • We had a lovely stay at Jonnies place! Jonnie is very helpful and her home is beautiful.

    Amber2019-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jonnie was an amazing host. It started with the initial communications - she was very helpful in the information she shared prior to arrival. And she was even more lovely once we checked in. Super accommodating, many nice touches like fruit, chocolates and toast with fresh jams. She even took us out in the morning on a paddleboard/kayak adventure on the lake that is right out in front of the house. The space is cute! A little backyard bedroom built off the side of the garage. We shared the house’s bathroom and living spaces. We really enjoyed the location - it is about 30 minutes to Rotorua, which we found to be close enough to do everything we wanted to but also far enough away to relax and see the amazing sky of stars!

    Colleen2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nice clean place. Jonette is an incredibly welcoming host willing to help you with anything you need. Thank you.

    The bach is through a forest on the shores of Lake Rotoiti. 20 mins from Rotorua. The bach is a big L shaped room with a separate bathroom. A hot pool is in the bush about a 15 minute walk from the bach. Kayaks to use with a hot water stream to kayak to. Lovely for swimming and waterskiing. Big front lawn. Hot water stream to sit in in the corner of the bay. Biking in the forest. You must bring all your own linen including towels, sheets, pillow cases, bath mat and tea towels. No dogs or tents.
    Door to lake in 10 seconds. Lovely hot pools to kayak too, a hot pool in the bush that you can walk to. Hot water stream in the corner of the bay. Biking in the forest. Manipouri Hotpools a 10 minute boat ride. Hells gate mud pools 10minutes drive away. Redwoods forest lovely place to walk and bike ( you can hire bikes).
    Close to the Hells gate hot pools. They are about an 8 minute drive away.
  • Great location, highly recommend. Excellent host

    Dylan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Just what we expected a lovely little bach in a remote setting that makes the drive to the regions attractions worthwhile. The kids especially loved getting out on the lake in the kayaks provided and we all loved relaxing in the Sulphur pools just up the road at Hells Gates

    Leeona2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little spot right on the lakefront amongst the bush. We had a great weekend if adventuring! Lots of rustic charm. Being able to use the kayaks was awesome. We will definitely book another trip. Thanks Sarah!

    Jennie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful night at Sarah's batch. The location is sensational with its proximity to the lake and distance to Rotorua. We had a lovely evening paddle in the kayak and watch the sunset from the grass in front of the batch. Great facilities, everything you'd need for a great stay (apart from an oven glove!) our only regret is not being able to stay longer, but we will be back.

    Joe2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Sreenath2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Communication and local tips were outstanding but nothing compared to the location and amenities which have to be seen to be believed.

    Mike And Lisa2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had read the reviews before our stay and thought that this place had a lot to live up to! But it does. It’s a lovely location in a hidden gem of a location. Easy to access Rotorua. We did the Buried Maori Village and Redwood Tree Walk on day 1 and then Rotorua Geothermal walk and circular Blue Lake Walk on Day 2. Blue Lake walk I found disappointing as you can’t see the lake as you walk. The board walk is however beautiful. Andrew’s place is perfect for a couple. It seems newly set up, with all new facilities and furniture. No compromises. They have thought of everything. Towels and sun cream if you want a swim in the lake. All in all a fabulous BnB.

    Lesley2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Paul2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • Great space! Our first official "Tiny House" stay, and it was lovely. :) Communication was good, and Nikki met us when we got there, to let us in and show us around. She gave us tips about the area, including food places and things to do. Great little spot, comfy bed, and great water pressure in the shower. Would definately recommend. :)

  • Jannah and George's place was excellent. The location is by Lake Tarawera and ~20 mins outside of Rotorua - it was really worth the drive though. The site is beautiful, a real sanctuary away from the city. The loft was spotless, with great kitchen facilities and a comfy bed. The garden with the fruit trees and chooks were an added bonus. Jannah and George were very friendly and accommodating; communication with them was smooth. Would definitely go back again if we return to the region.

    Erin2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with Jannah and Georges, exceptional setting. Discreet hosts with lots of little touches that make you happy. We recommend eyes closed !!

  • Beautiful clean and tidy place, felt really at home here. Neighbours are lovely and friendly too. Weekend getaway wasn’t long enough! Views were amazing, very central - only 15 minutes away from the nearest town but also secluded enough to feel detached from the busy-ness of every day life. Perfect relaxation spot. Really enjoyed our time here

    Anna2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy place, lovely view of the lake very nice to wake up to every morning. As noted hardly any reception but who needs that when you have an amazing view. Quick responses we messaged late to be able to stay the following day and we had it all sorted within the hour. Thanks for letting us stay Suzanne

    Sarah2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

    Rotoma, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

    Twisted Twig Glamping retreat is more than just a place to stay the night, it is an off grid experience nestled in 15 acres of pristine native bush surrounded by a working dairy farm. Located 45 minutes from Rotorua -40 minutes from Whakatane - short drive to Lake Rotoma. Guest access: We will meet you at the gate and discuss parking arrangements. There is a 250 metre walk in - your luggage will be transported. Activities to do: Glow worms A walk to the Giant tree Outdoor bath Bird watching
    This is glamping which is a form of camping.
    The retreat is a private location in the heart of the beautiful New Zealand native bush. You will be able to sit back and relax and enjoy listening to the birds sing or you might want to take an outdoor bath and enjoy a glass of wine. The retreat is set up for self catering. There are Breakfast provisions for you to enjoy . There are some daytime activities listed in the Retreats information booklet.
  • We booked the Twisted Twig to celebrate being able to extend our stay in New Zealand and what a celebration it was. The place is amazing.. so quirky and wonderful. An outdoor bath, a hammock, a BBQ, lovely sitting places thoughtfully positioned so you get a different view into the surrounding bush. Shelywn was a super host, friendly and welcoming and really quick to respond to anything we needed or asked, and it was so nice to have freshly baked bread and home made little ginger biscuits ( delicious, thank you ) to tuck into. Everything you need is there to just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the place amongst the trees and the birds. Inside there are plenty of games and books to entertain by candle light and the bed is comfy with big fluffy blankets so you won't get cold at night. Luckily we're only an hour away so I'm sure we'll be going back soon. If you are thinking about booking then I'd say you really must. It's great... you'll have a hoot!

    Alex2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Unique and unforgettable. Shelwyn and Dave have created a hard to beat handmade cabin in the wilderness. That is an awesome place away from where cars can travel. A hidden place to relax and calm down. Shelwyn is a fantastic host with an eye for lovely touch. Next to the homemade cookies, fresh and warm homemade bred and homemade jam etc. we loved the fresh flowers and little details around the area. The cabin is sourrounded by a forest, so you will be able to listen birds. Natur pure and a little adventure for our two young boys. Bush walk, glowe worms, and an inspiring short giant tree walk are only some examples. We stayed for 3 nights and spent our whole time here. Everything was very clean and in best condition. Outdoor kitchen is well equipped. Outside shower offers hot water as well and a flushing toillete is available. We highly recommend and already shared with our family in Australia and Germany. The best stop off the grid! Thank you Shelwyn and Dave for having us in this special cabin and nice property. Michael and fam

  • Stunning property, perfect getaway. 10/10 recommend

    Gemma2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome experience. The personal touches that were put out for Valentine's day were a very pleasant surprise. The place itself is so quiet and removed that you almost feel as if you were air dropped into your own little bit of paradise but modern enough to have running hot and cold water as well as a chilly bin, bbq, flushing toilet, shower, outside bath and bathroom and even cellphone charging via usb. The home baking and extra cooking supplies were also a very welcome touch. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and can't wait to stay again some day 👍😊

    Hamish2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Honestly what an incredible weekend! The cabin is incredible, it has its own personality with a lot of unique touches. My partner and i have traveled around new Zealand multiple times and this is right up there with the most unique and beautifull of them all. The Host is really friendly and goes the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. 100% would recommend to everyone!

    Vaughan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Such a magical and tranquil place surrounded by native bushland. It was beautiful! Shelwyn was a wonderful and hospitable host who paid a lot of attention to the small details to provide a homely vibe to the cabin. The highlight of our stay here was taking a bath where you looked up and could see the tall canopy and the night sky. I definitely would recommend staying here if visiting Rotorua or anywhere around that region as it’s easy to get to and quite close to everything

    Tania2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Shelwyn’s place is stunning, we stayed there for two nights and we wish we were staying longer. It’s private and in the heart of bush but close enough to get out to Rotorua or to the lake Rotoma. We love the fresh eggs, home made bread and free milk, home made cookies and homemade jam that Shelwyn had left out for us. Shelwyn was extremely helpful and communicated all information through clearly. Definitely not a spot to miss out on!

    Shaelina2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a real treat to stay here. Such an amazing one of a kind place. Absolutely loved every aspect of Twisted Twig, from the indoor/outdoor space, the special homemade treats, all the thoughtful finishing touches & of course the outdoor bath. So beautiful to be amongst nature & escape reality for a while. A wonderful experience not to be missed.

    Enjoy the lake, mountain biking & tramping. Self contained studio room over the road from the lake. Sleeps up to two people.
    Close to an access to a great swimming beach just across the road, a lake & mountain view, just 20 minutes from Rotorua and all its attractions.
    Lake Tarawera is a lovely small community situated close enough to Rotorua to be enjoy all the facilities that a small sized city offers but far enough away to be in a pristine & quiet environment of a bush & lake setting.
  • Convenient, clean and no fuss. Des is an easy going host and I had a good stay. Thanks!

    Fraser2019-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was one of my favourite air bnb places I’ve stayed at. Des is a nice guy, and tries to make sure that you have whatever you need to be comfortable, plus he helped me manage to get to a hike I really wanted to do. I’d gladly stay again.

    Audrey2018-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Des was a great host, really helpful. Great location and very peacefull

    Dan2018-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Des is a perfect host and has interesting stories to share. A 3min walk takes you to the lake with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The right accommodation for all looking for a quiet place offside tourism.

    Matthias2018-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Des’s place is adorable, perfect little space for a few days. The area and lake are gorgeous : ) Unfortunately we had to leave early due to family emergency - Des was very accommodating and flexible around it, very much appreciated!

    Leah2018-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic place! Scenic, peaceful, secure, like a dream! Really enjoyed staying at this place. Many thanks to Des - so thoughtful careful and communicative. Highly recommended.

    Lydia2018-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect stay for a couple of days while attending a family wedding at Lake Tarawera. Small space with everything you need for a relaxing time - being surrounded by native bush was awesome. The space was clean, tidy & comfortable for my daughter and I. There is a track down to the lake almost opposite - easy access for swimming. Everything as described and communication with Des was easy. Would stay again & recommend.

    Jan2018-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for having me Des! I was relieved by such a smooth booking process, although I made the request rather last min. The location is only about 20min drive out from Rotorua township and yet felt like being in totally different area. Des gave me loads of tips for activities to do around his accommodation. The area offers so many things to do like swimming, walking, visiting further places by boat or even relaxing with coffee with stunning lake views. It's such a beautiful place with great opportunities for outdoor activities!!

  • Walnut Farmstay is an excellent BnB. The house is well equipped, very clean, comfortable, and the starry sky at night is amazing. Donna and her husband are very friendly and helpful. I will book again when in the Whakatone area. 5 stars!!!

    Michael2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a good time staying at Donna’s, it’s just nice for the three of us. We love how clean and tidy it is, and it’s tastefully done too. Everything is provided we don’t have to worry, and we enjoyed the breakfast! Love the farm house experience, waking up to the cows and the volcano, and looking up at the stars at night. We ended up staying in as we wanted to enjoy the place as much as possible, good for retreat/recharge. We hope one day we can be back again!

    Janice2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing and private little spot with everything you need for a short or long stay. Kids loved the books and games supplied and breakfast was ample and delicious. Hosts are welcoming and friendly and we will definitely stay again and recommend to others.

The unit also have the use of a double kayak for those who want to explore Lakes Rotorua and Lake Rotoiti.
    River lodge is 2km from from Okere Falls where there is a restaurant and pub as well. Here you can go for walks and admire the waterfalls and Kaituna river or do White water rafting, guided by professionals. Hamurana Springs which is 10 min away is a "must visit" for tourists and includes a lovely walk. The Redwood trees tower over the beautifully blue Hamurana Spring. If you enjoy forests the Redwoods Tree walk is an unforgettable experience walking across bridges suspended high across the forest floor. On our doorstep the resort have access to Lake Rotorua and the Ohau channel. You can explore Lake Rotoiti as well by kayak and find a hidden local "gem", the Marupirua natural hotwater spring and spa which you can only reach by water. The bird life is amazing here and swans a picture of peace. New Zealand is truly a natural beauty that is priceless.

  • Perfect place to stay if want to stay in rotorua. It's a 10-15 minute car journey into the city centre but better to stay out in the quiet and without that smell. Hosts were lovely, messaging information promptly. Beautiful house on amazing grounds.

    This large studio apartment is set in native bush at Lake Tarawera, at the back of a lake-front property. However, it does have great views of the lake. It has one main room which includes a kitchen area, a dining room table, a lounge and beds and there's a separate bathroom. It is accessed up a flight of stairs with a laundry for use downstairs. The Penthouse Studio does not provide breakfast, so please feel free to bring your own food to prepare in the roomy kitchen. Wifi is available.
    This is ideal for couples, small groups and small families. It is close to the Black Barn - a popular wedding venue. The Black Barn’s drive is about 0.7 km from the Studio.
    There is plenty to do and see at both Lake Tarawera and Rotorua. The Penthouse Studio is at the back of a lakefront property which has its own jetty. It is close to the Blue Lake, the Buried Village, the start of the Tarawera Trail, and the Landing Cafe. It is not far from the Water Taxi which services the Tarawera Trail and Hot Water Beach. It is 20 minutes drive into Rotorua. We are also very close to The Black Barn - the popular wedding venue.
  • Amazing place with the perfect location to enjoy this incredible area away from crowds - bring groceries because you won’t want to leave!

  • So happy to find this beautiful place Just a three and a half hour drive from Auckland It's a studio with two beds and a double bed and a single bed separated by a bookshelf There is a little cute toilet The beautiful lake can be seen through the glass window. The landlord lives next door, walks through his house, walks to the lake for 1 minute. This is a small station bridge repaired by the landlord. You can sit by the lake and enjoy the view The host's backyard has grown a lot of pumpkins and corn, everything is clean This time I was in a hurry, only stayed one night, and the weather was not rainy. I couldn't see the stars through the glass roof at night, but it doesn't matter. I live in Auckland. I will come back when I have the chance. I didn't sleep well at night because there were invisible bugs biting me on that little bed, so itching, so I got up early in the morning and went to the lake to see the beautiful scenery I am very happy to find this beautiful place three and a half hours drive from Auckland.
