Step into a charming jewel of Rotorua history and a really warm welcome in one of the most exciting corners of the country, where nature is intimately linked to the Maori heritage. the historic home, only 2 minutes drive, or 10 minutes on foot from the city centre, was built by one of Rotorua's forefathers, in 1905. Under the auspices of the Historic Places Trust it has been painstakingly renovated, retaining its colonial charm. Relax in its warm comfortable atmosphere, or take time out on the verandah and enjoy the old English cottage garden resplendent with colour and fragrance, citrus trees and grape vines. Your friendly host John is more than happy to help you discover all the natural beauty of the region such as the spectacular geothermal sites, and all the various sightseeing attractions. It is the aim to make your accommodation a further highlight of your visit to this fantastic region of New Zealand.
