Perfect home for our weekend
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. Along with a spa pool to relax in and enjoy the gorgeous view. Nicky made us feel so welcome and the whole weekend was ideal.

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.
