Beautiful views. Alpaca's in the front yard. Very close to town. We were in the private house so it was very nice and cozy.

More than expected

Walking into something without too much expectations, my partner and i where very surprised. So nice to be greated like old friends who haven't seen each other in ages! The views, tiny gym, sauna, spa, comfy beds and you have to feed the alpacas! Was a real nice change to be JUST out of town (Just a couple of kms). Home made breakfast with a country touch was a sad reality that we had to leave that day. Will be back but not soon enough.

This is the best place to stay in Rotorua. The hosts Leigh and Angie are so warm and welcoming. You will experience true hospitality here. Their homemade breakfast that we enjoyed here each morning was delicious, healthy and filling. It is the perfect to start your sightseeing day. The homemade blueberry muffins and zucchini bread were delicious and comforting. The homemade plum jam, grapefruit marmalade, lemon curd, peanut butter, and muesli were delectable as well. Our room was extremely clean, comfortable and luxurious. This really felt like our home away from home. Angie and Leigh gave us extremely valuable tips on when and where to best see the sites. I think we made the most of our 2 days here because of Angie and Leigh’s recommendations. When we visit Rotorua again, we will certainly stay here.
