“Lovely, organised and caring host.”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Although we unfortunately didn't end up staying in this property due to medical issues, I found Carey to be extremely caring, well organised and considerate at a very difficult time. She always replied promptly to emails and requests.

“Amazing waterfront accomodation in Quiet location”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Small cottage style house on lake edge. All facilities with three bedrooms, main with King size bed. Although the house is older it was well maintained and presented with new floor coverings. Owner was very accomodating and helpful, we only wish we could have stayed longer as the aspect overlooking the lake at night was unforgettable,

“Great Lakeside Location”
Reviewed 10 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Lovely house and gardens with wonderful views over the lake. A quieter area for those seeking peace and rest - had a lovely BBQ in the outside area one evening. Need to travel into Rotorua for meals out and seeing the sights. But the sulphur smells Rotorua is noted for are not evident at this location. Owners live in next house and were most helpful.

“Family holiday”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were a family group of 4 grandparents and two children and this house was a perfect base for our Rotorua holiday. The weather was cold but the house was lovely and warm when we arrived. Great location and everything we needed. Would very much like to return in the summer.

“Very comfortable, good location and easy to deal with.”
Reviewed 16 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed here late December 2015. The accommodation was comfortable and well positioned to ensure a comfortable, peaceful and relaxing stay, while still being close enough to all the major attractions of the area. Carey was good to deal with and very friendly. Thank-you for a lovely stay.

“What a fantastic view!”
Reviewed 23 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We spend three night here overlooking Lake Mokoia and could have spent three months! To sit on our veranda with the beautiful view of the lake and surrounding mountains as well as the wonderfully kept garden was a marvellous experience. We didn’t want to leave!
