Overview

Photos and Description of this Ngongotaha holiday cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

64 On Oturoa is a small operating farmlet. You will drive along our avenue of beautiful old trees which change dramatically through the seasons. The driveway is bounded either side by paddocks with sheep, our miniature horse Bess and our free ranging colourful chickens. The nearby village of Ngongotaha offers café, grocery, chemist, doctors, liquor outlets, post office with bookstore and lotto. Rotorua city centre is a pleasant 10km drive with many of the local attractions on the way. You might like to stop off at the Agrodome, Zorb or the Big Splash or Luge. Fishing options are abundant in our area with the boat ramp at Ngongotaha and Hamurana just a short drive away. White water rafting, Eco Tours, Leisure and Wild Life parks, Scenic flights, geothermal wonders, cycling and mountain biking just waiting for you to enjoy. Eat Streat in Rotorua is a very popular stop with a fantastic variety of food on offer. February is the month for the Lakeside Free Concert. Well worth the effort. This concert takes place rain or shine with some amazing talent from all over New Zealand. We are close enough for you to use this as a base for the National Field Days in Hamilton. This area is a mountain bikers dream, come along and enjoy what the area has to offer. There is safe storage for your bikes. Just ask. We are happy to share with you, seasonal fruit from our orchard. A variety of herbs are grown in the area in front of the cottage and we are happy for you to make use of these.

We had the whole home-spacious, warm and with all mod cons.

  • 5 of 5

We had the whole home-spacious, warm and with all mod cons. The garden and the outlook is a special pleasure with big picture windows looking out to flowers, green green fields, singing birdlife and deer browsing. Plus delicious green! eggs from Fiona's girls. We would have loved to stay longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you, the gardens are forever changing and now the paddocks are full of fawns which are just wonderful to watch when they are at play. Love to see you both back again some time.

Location is lovely.

  • 5 of 5

Location is lovely. It's a small working farm with views over a deer farm. The rooms were nice and the bach was spacious and had everything we needed. Complimentary eggs were delicious as well.

We enjoyed our stay on the farmlet.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on the farmlet. Don & Fiona were willing to show us all the animals which our daughter especially enjoyed and one of the main reasons we stayed there. The cottage was very warm and clean and quiet. There was lots of garden to play in when not raining!
