Awesome Family Venue
This was an amazing property for all 12 of us, from grandparents to 2 x 2 year old cuzzies. It was cold outside and the house was warm and cozy even though it was big and spacious. The hot spa was a fun place for us all to hang out together. We had a place for each one of us e.g. my partner did yoga in the main bedroom while the kids all watched a movie in the lounge by the fire and some of us were in the spa or out walking by the lake. We all had perfect sleeping spaces too. The Lake was cold but good for a quick dip between spa soaks and although the kayaks weren't used, we could have, we did the luge instead. A great house for a large family. Thankyou so much, Gay and whānau.

Perfect. We stayed 2 nights and felt so happy staying at this beautiful home. It was very clean and tidy, comfy beds, plenty of towels, well equipped kitchen, with heating thru out.

Ngongotaha Nights
Nicky and Sam's bach was perfect for our extended family with ages from 2 to 70+. With Lake Rotorua on the doorstep we had a invigorating winter's dip in the lake and then relaxed in the spa . Toys to entertain the children and sky sport for the adults. Bach was well equipped, spacious, warm and clean. We enjoyed our stay.
