Holiday Rental House
At the end of the rambling driveway you will find this lovely sanctuary on Lake Rotorua water’s edge. A very warm (well heated facility), spacious and accommodating home to make your stay an enjoyable and memorable experience. Additional areas both internally and externally provide extra room to relax and soak up your own space if so desired. At night you can hear the soothing lake water lap against the shore line. For those that like some recreational activity there is a recessed area on the front deck with leaner & stools and a dart board. In the double garage you will find a table tennis table, kayaks and there is a trampoline for the younger children located in the front section. There is plenty of parking space. Unobstructed views of the lake can be seen from the main living areas ...At the end of the rambling driveway you will find this lovely sanctuary on Lake Rotorua water’s edge.
