Our family recently rented the 3 bedroom , 2 bath unit for 33 days.

Our family recently rented the 3 bedroom , 2 bath unit for 33 days. The residence is very well maintained, bedding is very comfortable and the location outside of Tauranga is excellent. The property is landscaped with lovely shrubs, flowering trees, and potted plants. The in-ground pool was a huge plus and is cleaned frequently. We would definitely return and highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great vacation property.

Welcoming and fully stocked rental!

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming and fully stocked rental! We had everything we needed, and the kids were extremely excited to explore the trampoline and treehouse, and to visit the chickens and the neighbor's llama. Very close to McLaren Falls park, which is absolutely beautiful! Tauranga is easily accessible, as is Rotorua. Only snag we ran into was a traffic accident right at the turnoff from the highway--traffic was backed up for ~10 km, and the road (Pori pori) was closed completely to traffic. Great holiday!

Lovely place very well located to explore the countryside, the coast and Rororua not too far away. Very clean, well equipped and spacious. Loved the pool and the water holes close by. My two young sons had a ball!
