We enjoyed our stay. The hosts were amazing and the place was mint. Highly recommended if you want to spend some time away from Auckland or anywhere else in NZ and the world. We will be staying here again the next time we travel to Rotorua.

5/5 Excellent

Nice place to stay
Property has all that you will need to enjoy your stay. The only glitch we encountered was the water pressure was too low to take a shower but were able to use the bath instead. Overall, would highly recommend.
