Stayed here two nights - before and after the Rotorua Marathon. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind, but also walking distance to supermarkets, main road and eat streat. Very clean and comfort with lovely hosts.

I stayed a while ago. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Our self contained unit was really nice and it felt like a home away from home. It is pretty close to everything. I enjoyed my stay and would love to get the chance to stay on my next holiday to Rotorua!

We only stayed one night but received a very warm welcome from Kristin. The room was spacious, extremely comfortable (great bed!) and spotlessly clean. The thermally heated pool was a real treat which we just had to use! Breakfast was the star of the show - lovely fruit/cereal, boiled eggs, toast, yoghurt - a perfect breakfast. We really enjoyed our... More

Lovely hosts and lots of space in this 2 storey holiday house option walking distance to Rotorua city centre area. Had a kitchen and off street parking. Hosts provided lots of discount vouchers and tips for both Rotorua and other places we planned to visit. Good option for families with youngish kids who want space.

We stayed for Queens Birthday weekend in the lovely South Apartment. The apartment is comfortable, warm, and very well appointed. Dishwasher, washing machine, 2 TVs, and very comfy beds. The location is great too as it is so close to the city centre, but in a quiet street off the main drag. Kristin was a very welcoming host and was... More

We rented a two bedroom house for the start of our New Zealand holiday and it set the bar high. True we weren't aware of the requirement to check in by 6pm but the hosts were very gracious about this, and made us feel welcome.

We were very fortunate to be able to stay for three nights in the West Apartment. The apartment was very large, attractive, quiet, well maintained and spotlessly clean - well beyond our expectations for the price.
