“We enjoyed our stay thank you. Was very relaxing. Loved the hammock. Lovely setting and very peaceful. Loved the chooks and the cat that came to visit us. We are not town people so felt like home away from home.
We enjoyed our stay, such a cute little place and would definitely come back.

“What can I say - this place far exceeded our expectations! The photos don’t do the place justice at all. We were 6 friends escaping the city for the long weekend but I would recommend for friends, families anyone really! The space was large enough for us not to be on top of each other and I would say easily one of the cosiest Airbnb’s I’ve stayed in. On site there are beautiful flowers, and orange grove and other Airbnb properties to stay at also. This house is exactly what you need for a city escape or good holiday destination.”

“Thank you for allowing us to stay at your property. We stayed in The Homestead and we had such a wonderful time there. The house was very tidy and clean. It had lots of cool furniture and decor which made it feel very homely. The kitchen had everything we needed, although we really only cooked breakfasts as we were out during the day for meals. The kids loved the bunk room, always a treat to sleep on bunk beds when you don't have them at home. The grounds are fabulous and it was so nice to be able to go for a stroll around the garden and for the kids to play and explore outside in all the open spaces. Lighting the indoor fires warmed the house up beautifully and made it so warm and cosy. The outdoor fire was also a real hit, toasted marshmallows was on the menu one evening for dessert. And I particularly loved the orange grove where we picked oranges each day to squeeze for beautiful fresh orange juice drinks. I would highly recommend this accommodation for anyone wanting to explore all that Rotorua has to offer, but enjoys quiet farm like surroundings for relaxing in after a busy day. We certainly hope to return again some day.
Thanks again for having us.
James and Kelly”

“A fantastic place to escape with the kids for the weekend! Tranquil rural living with farm surroundings. There is no need for kids to be on devices with such a beautiful space to play and explore outside! Lots of board games and we were even lucky enough to be invited to the neighbours farm to feed their 4 week old lambs! The outdoor fire and pizza oven were the perfect way to end a busy day outdoors.”
