Overview

Photos and Description of this Ngongotaha holiday farmhouse

Farmstay, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Rotorua Shearers' Retreat is a warm and peaceful 2 bedroom farmstay on the owners' farm, converted from the original Shearers' Quarters. Tuis, bellbird and NZ wood pigeons are often seen and heard around the fenced section which provides secure space for children and parking for boat/car .

View sheep and cattle grazing from the kitchen and living areas! Well-insulated and sited for the sun, comfort is assured with a heat pump/airconditioner. The kitchen's oven, stovetop, and microwave offer the comforts of home. A fridge-freezer and good size pantry allow plenty of storage for longer stays. Both the kitchen and lounge open on to a covered sheltered outdoor living area with barbeque in rural surroundings.

From the kitchen, head to the bathroom and separate utility room or into the 2nd bedroom/bunkroom. Kids love stargazing through the bunkroom's skylight window. Access to the main bedroom is through the 2nd bedroom/bunkroom. The spacious lounge/dining area has French doors opening into a private garden area and also on to the covered outdoor living area.

A few minutes down the road are cafes, restaurants and quality takeaways (Indian, Chinese, and Fish and Chips) if you're taking it easy.

Great property, ideal for young kids, short drive into rotorua and all the local attractions. It is not the most modern property but has all the creature comforts, a well supplied kitchen, lots of linen and a sheep and some horses to boot.

Beautiful tranquil scenery, with great farm location , easy to find with good directions. Accommodation had everything we needed for cooking, BBQ, laundry etc. Nice luxurious long bath, and King sized master bed was very comfy. A nice variety of family games ,books and entertainment. We will definitely go there again, perhaps with friends next time too!

The Shearers Retreat is a good description of this property.

  • 3 of 5

The Shearers Retreat is a good description of this property. Rustic but immaculately clean, warm and well equipped.

Outside bath a real delight, as were the chickens and horses. The secluded location provided the privacy we were looking for. The short drive to local attractions made the location perfect for our purposes.
