Regole della casa
Questo alloggio non è adatto ai bambini di età inferiore a 12 anni. L'host inoltre vieta l'ingresso agli animali domestici, l'organizzazione di feste e di fumare. Mostra i dettagli
Riverside cottage is nestled on the banks of the peaceful Ngongotaha trout stream. Wake up to the sound of birdsong and views along the river to lovely lake Rotorua.


Here you are very close to Rotorua's main attractions: Mitai Māori village, Zorb, The Gondola, Luge, Wingspan and many others.

The local amenities include a cafe, a well-stocked four superette, bakeries, a chemist and post office all within walking distance.

Rotorua centre is only a short, ten minute drive around the lake.

Lo spazio
The guesthouse has everything you will need to create a home away from home while you are on holiday. The kitchen has pots, pans, baking trays and dishes, chopping boards, serving dishes and a mortar and pestle.

In the bathroom, natural, cold pressed handmade soap is provided, along with shampoo and other toiletries.

Laundry powder, a drying rack, iron and ironing board are provided.

Wi-Fi is unlimited and an internet Chromecast makes surfing the net fun and easy. Using the chromecast Light box, Netflix and youtube are available. In the bedroom a Tivoli Model One radio and speaker can be plugged into an android or iPhone to play music or spotify.

The bed is a comfortable queen with commercial quality sheets and linen. I do not use chemical fabric softeners, only sunshine.

There is an electric blanket on the bed and spare quilts and throws provided. The pillows on the bed are very thick bamboo fibre pillows. Two smaller pillows are stored in the wardrobe if needed. Protectors are used on the pillows and mattress, these are regularly washed.

The property is right to the waters edge of the world famous Ngongotaha trout stream. Fishing is often excellent as it is a spawning stream. The riverside is a lovely place to relax or to fish, (during the season), if that is what you enjoy. The water is clean and the fish are lovely to eat. Graceful black swans, little native ducks and other bird life, are frequent visitors.

The Ngongotaha lakeside reserve is easily accessible and is a wonderful place for evening walks, with views of Mokoia island and Rotorua itself.

Two cruiser bikes are available for hire to take on the cycle routes into town, or around the reserves.

The property is extremely private and apart from the odd fisherman or kayaker on the river, we hardly see anyone. The cottage itself is tucked away from view behind the main house.

The bedroom gets morning sun and the lounge/kitchen gets afternoon sun. The space is regularly dehumidified in winter and fan cooled in summer.

Accesso per gli ospiti
Guests have separate access to their cottage and free access to the garden and rivers edge.

There are plenty of places to park on the property, it is very safe.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
Two rottweillers live on the property. Jed is a male, very quiet and four years old. Marley is a very young female. She can be boisterous and may jump up if she's happy to see you. In general the dogs are with me and won't bother guests unless invited.

Rotorua, Bay of Plenty, Nuova Zelanda

Ngongotaha is quite a special village, with its own central marae (Maori meeting place) In general it's quiet, and sometimes we do hear tangi (funerals) or haka (singing/dancing) at the marae or rugby ground.

If you don't feel like the short drive to the nearest supermarket, our handy local four square superette has good salad greens, fresh produce and a good variety of cheeses, ham, meat or fish. The local fish and chip shop is fresh and well priced. A large Countdown supermarket is 7 minutes by car at Fairy Springs which is on the main route into town.

For a decent restaurant meal Rotorua township is ten minutes drive away, famous Eat street in central Rotorua has a wide variety of great places to eat but there are some equally good hidden gems that aren't on Eat street.

Capers cafe is renown for lunch or a cake treat. Imperfetto pizzeria is excellent for wood fired pizzas made in front of you. Sabrosa restaurant for Mexican and a mean margarita is also a fun night out. Booking is essential.

Kuirau park market on a Saturday is a great place to see the local scene and eat a good breakfast. The Farmers market on a Sunday has artisan produce and crafts. The Living Room collective is a treasure trove, open six days a week, for artisan or vintage finds. The Rotorua Arts village has an excellent cafe and events, local art can be seen , some of it is for sale.

The night market on Thursday is not to be missed, there is music, local vibe and great food. It will give you an idea of the warm community we have here in Rotorua.

I am a kiwi and like a lot of kiwis I have travelled quite a bit. I lived in India for a year, taught art in London for a year and lived four years in Greece where I began teaching English and ended up doing interiors. I have also spent quite a bit of time in Germany, in particular Berlin which I love. I can speak a few sentences in German, Greek and Maori but don't put me to the test! I have degrees in art and design and am currently working as a lecturer teaching art and design. I love animals and nature, music permaculture and planet earth. Travel is a good teacher, let's go on the journey!
