About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)

Welcome to Lynmore Lockwood. My place is your place ? a three-bedroom open-plan Lockwood. I live in a separate cottage on the same property. Timber walls and high ceilings give it that holiday feeling, two bathrooms/toilets make it easy for larger groups. Portacot and highchair for young guests.

The real beauty of staying here is having the forest so close ? only 150 metres from the house you're into the trees and ferns on well-maintained tracks. And it's MTB paradise; leave the car at home and ride 5 min through forest to the start of NZ's best mountainbiking tracks - hundreds of kms of trails. Ideal location for events beginning at the Redwoods Centre ? walk or ride to the start. A block from the house there?s a big park and kids? playground, and bus stop to town. From Lynmore it?s 10-30 minutes' drive to four lovely lakes; Okareka, Blue, Green and Tarawera - swimming and picnics.

All included, unless I'm away, is fresh bread and fresh coffee beans for you to grind - I'll deliver to the door each morning. There?s a heat pump-warmed well-equipped kitchen/dining for meals, or a variety of takeaway outlets to choose from at the nearby Redwoods shopping centre, and a large sunny deck and gas barbecue for summer days. The lounge has a woodburner for warmth in winter, and a home theatre system, a fairly eclectic selection of books, internet (free unlimited fibre WiFi and computer) and a selection of classic boardgames for entertainment. A secure garage, tools and a bikestand will keep your MTB safe and running. The garden?s one of my hobbies; visit at the right time and you'll get tree-ripened fruit. Linen?s supplied and the beds have decent mattresses. It's even worth waking early and opening the window or sitting on the deck to enjoy the birdsong.

You're welcome to pop by my place for info, or if you?ve forgotten supplies I can help out. Otherwise, I?ll be unobtrusive, just using the garage occasionally.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$60.00 per stay); Linen (included);

The house is perfect for a mountain bike trip to Rotorua. The house was nice and the kitchen was well appointed and a pleasure to cook in.

Lynmore Lockwood is welcoming, comfortable, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. We loved the garden! The Redwoods are just at the end of the street - bonus! We would definitely return to Mark's holiday home. Thanks Mark!

Very clean on arrival, all necessary facilities and lots of extras, everything worked. Good house layout and location - quiet, on the fringes of the city, near the redwood forest which was lovely (tree top walk recommended). Good brunch spot down the road (Sequoia) and also lovely cake shop/cafe a little up the street (Mistress of Cakes, slices of heaven...). Lovely deck to sit out on and enjoy the evening sun. Top spot, many thanks Mark.

Location was great with walking access to redwoods and quick access by car to the city centre and the lakes. House was lovely. Creaks from the wood were loud and took a bit of getting used to but not really a problem. Facilities were great. House did get cold in the morning a few times and this was in summer so would imagine it would be very cold in the winter. There was a fire though which we did not use.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would strongly recommend the property.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you found it a bit cold. We did have some cool mornings that week (down to 5 Celsius even, in January). There are heaters in each room and the heatpump plus fireplace for the lounge which do a good job of warming the place up. I even had a Singapore family in mid winter who commented how warm the house was (with the heating running full blast)!
