Sheltered,sunny and quiet with a large, grassy section. There are 2 bedrooms inside the main house, plus 2 sleepouts close to the house. One sleepout has a double bed and the other a set of bunks. In addition to the main bathroom in the house, there's a cute semi outside bathroom between the sleepouts where you can shower with the possums!. Has a verandah, a large deck and carport in a garden setting. Mature fruit trees, grape vines, feijoas, rasberries etc.Swing and climbing frame.Well behaved and house-trained dogs welcome. There are two Kayaks available and bikes supplied. Heat pump for winter. The "Cheeky Tui" holiday home right next door is also owned by us, making it ideal for 2 families who are friends to rent one each.

There's room for a boat and lots of space for children to run around and play in the swing, treehut, trampoline and climbing frame. There are also board games, lego, cricket set etc to use.

Also room for a tent by arrangement.

Portacot provided.

TV and phone.

Use this home as a base to see Rotorua sights as well as using the lake environment. Large fenced area for safety for children (and dogs)

"Thank you, a fabulous place to stay. This is a perfect place to retreat to. Quiet and so well set up with everything we needed.The garden setting, the art work and the extra, quirky outdoor bathroom means this place has the X factor.

We'll be back, Roger, Anne and Eliza

"Have had Easter weekends away for the past 20 yrs and this is one of the most enjoyable and delightful spots"

Nice location. Handy for the short walks and location to the lake. Could be time for a bit of maintenance but overall fairly enjoyable. Very peaceful.
