We loved our stay and enjoyed the pastoral surroundings. Freshly baked bread every morning was a real treat. Our son enjoyed the feeding of the animals. Very nice hosts. Hamurana Springs closeby- a jewel!

Very nice farm stay. Comfortable cottage. Friendly owners. Kids got to feed the animals (sheep, chickens, rabbits, hedgehog)--a definite highlight. Close to Rotorua (about 20 minutes), but also away from it.

stayed 2 nights here for 3 persons, at $250 per night. The cottage was impeccable, excellent furnishings and very warm and comfy. The best part was that it came well stocked with food (bread, fruits, eggs, can food and even croissants) so you do not need to buy much things when you come, except for some pasta. The dogs are...

Debbie was a great host who provided us with breakfast daily of freshly baked bread, croissants and pies. The location was excellent, situated near the beautiful Lake Rotorua and other famous attractions such as the Agrodome and SkyLine Rotorua. The animal feeding was interesting as we got to interact with the friendly sheeps, goats, chickens and rabbits.

We had a wonderful stay at Broekhaven Country Cottage with our family of 5. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. They provide a simple but amazing breakfast with home made bread, croissants, jams, cereal, coffee etc. The cottage is on a beautiful and quiet side of the lake, but close enough to the hustle and bustle of down town...
