Your hosts are Barbara and Phillip, semi-retired and happy to share the downstairs apartment. It is an entire place, independent of us with a parking space and side entrance. The apartment is downstairs and you will hear us upstairs if we are home. Earplugs may be required for complete quiet. We are located in a lovely, well-appointed suburb of Rotorua only 10 minutes drive to the centre of town. Rotorua has a lot to offer whether you are on a budget or not there will be something to do.
“Barbara's place is lovely, it's in a great location with beautiful views of the lake. We were travelling with our one year old and arrived to a portacot set up and high chair ready at the table, we didn't even request these so it was such a lovely surprise that Barbara had these ready knowing we were travelling with a toddler. The place was roomy and clean with lots of local tips, we would definitely stay again!”
Cozy, warm, spacious, fresh and clean room with private entrance in a friendly and safe neighborhood. Tv/ Netflix and Wifi. Heat pump. Free off road parking . Short drive to town center and Whakarewarewa forest.
“Everything that I needed at the last minute before NZ Lock down. A good place for 1 or 2 nights (no cooking facilities or microwave). I will be back in the future when things are back to normal.”
The house is modern but homely, in a quiet and safe neighbourhood near the lakeside, with hosts present. A sunny and decent sized room with two single beds and fresh linen including extra blankets. You also get a heater and a shared bathroom with heating and separate toilet. We are just a 5 min drive to the supermarket, cheap petrol station and lake access, and a 10 min drive to the city centre. FREE fast WiFi and FREE breakfast provided.
“The place is clean and in a convenient location. We stayed here as a base for various activities around Rotorua, like Hobbiton and Waitomo caves. Emile is a lovely host who made sure we felt welcome, giving us recommendations and reminding us there is a local night market on Thursday when we were there. Highly recommended”
