Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps maximum of 6)

This 1930's cottage looks directly across to the open fields of Kuirau Park. Kuirau Park offers free Geothermal Attractions, foot baths, beautiful gardens, childrens playground, open playing fields, and is bordered by the Rotorua Aquatic Centre. The park is host to a busy Saturday morning local market. Plenty to enjoy here.

A short walk takes you to the City Centre, 'Eat Streat', shopping, restaurants, cafes, cinema and the lake front. The great location also makes an easy pick up for tour operators

The cottage itself is tastefully furnished throughout. The two good-sized bedrooms each boast Queen beds and the second bedroom provides a sofa bed for extra guests.

The sunny living room is equipped with a Smart TV and every room has its own heater to take the chill off any frosty mornings.

The kitchen has a full sized stove/oven. Coffee, tea and some basic pantry items are provided

Bike or drive to the Redwood Forest or the mountain bike tracks at Waipa just south of Te Puia.

From Kuirau Park you can bike Rotorua’s Green Corridor which links existing cycleways through the inner city. The Green Corridor runs from the Sulphur Point cycle trail (part of the New Zealand Cycle Trail Te Ara Ahi), Rotorua’s Government Gardens and through to Ngongotaha village.

Our Rate per night is for up to 4 people, the cottage can sleep a maximum of 6 with the extra cost of $20 per person/per night (child under 12mths - no charge)

Please Note: For long week-ends we have a 3 night minimum stay.

If you are supplying your own linen you need to bring sheets, pillowcases and towels. We also offer you the option to self clean as you are leaving ( save $60 off your booking if you opt to self clean and save again by bringing your own linen )

Special conditions:

There is NO LAUNDRY on site but there are 2 Laundromats close by.

Off street parking for 1 vehicle with free street parking right out front.

Port-a-cot available on request.

During the week we operate a car grooming business from the workshop behind the house from 8.30am - 4.30pm. This creates no disturbance to the house but means the driveway beside the building needs to be kept clear during the hours of operation. The business is closed on week ends


Cleaning Fee of NZ$60.00 per stay will be added; Save yourself the cleaning charge by doing it yourself. The cottage has all the products required. Let us know if you would like this option and we will remove the fee.

Supply of Linen charge: $15 per person - Want to reduce the price of your stay? Supply your own sheets, pillowcases and towels - please confirm with us.

About DeborahHa17

We were both born the the Bay of Plenty but as children our families shifted away.

In the mid 1980's as newly weds we moved to Rotorua. All our children have been born & raised here so as a family we have enjoyed the lakes, forest, outdoor activities and many events that this great little city has to offer
