Why Rob Steadman chose Rotorua
We were very fortunate to get the opportunity to buy this lakeside property - they very rarely come on the market. We fell in love with the place on first viewing, and that hasn't changed over the years. It is our privilege to share our cottage with guests from all over the world.
What makes this Cottage unique
The position on the absolute lakefront is a benefit that is quite rare among Rotorua properties. The area is very quiet, and the olny noise that can be heard at night is the lapping of the waves.
This will be strictly enforced
Extra cleaning fee $350 may be charged
Max guests:8 (sleeps up to 8 adults)

Great stay, great host
Couldn't ask for anything more
Perfection in every way
This property is exactly as it is portrayed: comfortable, serene, relaxing, close to town and with all the features you need for a wonderful holiday (perfect for a honeymoon or a family break). Rob was so welcoming, we instantly felt at home and his thoughtfulness regarding our special celebrations was particularly kind. The attention to detail in the inclusions is outstanding - from the kitchen items through to the luxurious bed linens and fluffy blankets. I would thoroughly recommend staying here for anyone coming to Rotorua.

Perfect home away from home
Rob, thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage for the weekend. Everything was absolutely perfect! It was neat, tidy, clean, classy, quiet, cosy, etc. and comes with a view to die for. Your personal hospitality was also top class. We loved your cottage and would dearly like to visit again in future. Hopefully for a bit longer then... Take care!
Thanks so much Shaughn & Ilse- I really appreciate your kind words. You were great guests and you are welcome back any time.
Thanks Rob. We had a terrific few days away. The cottage was warm, furnished and had all the extra necessities to make our stay as easy as possible.
Our kids enjoyed the lake front, in particular the kayaks. On a cold winters morning it was a great way to start the day.
We’ll back for sure. Next time in summer.
Thanks for the warm welcome and hospitality.
Hi Brigitte & Mike - Thanks so much for lovely review. You are welcome back any time!
Luxury on the lake
This is a beautiful, luxurious property situated right by a picturesque lake with lovely views. We received a warm welcome from the host in person which was very helpful. The house is well appointed and has lots of resources to make the stay pleasant. The fridge is stocked with ingredients for a cooked breakfast - a really nice touch and helpful as we arrived late after a long drive. There are five kayaks providing a relaxing and fun activity for the family. This is the best home stay I've every had and I'd definitely stay there again.
Thanks for the great review Jamie - much appreciated! You are welcome back to the cottage anytime.
