We had a wonderful relaxing stay out in the country, but still super close to Rotoura. I particularly loved going down each morning to the chook house and choosing my eggs for breakfast. We even got pretty good at petanque. Such a relaxing homely venue. Thanks

The location is perfect, away from the bustle of Rotorua, but close enough for easy access when you want it. The setting was marvelous, and the hosts were completely engaging. When we mentioned we were amateur astronomers and...

The room was perfectly appointed and huge with a private deck. We loved waking up with the deer peeking inquisitively at us from their meadow. Mike's farm...
