If you are in Rotorua, this is the best place to stay. Owners are very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is extremely clean and well decorated. Nice to be able to do laundry too. Large screen tv which was nice as we saw one of the Olympic hockey games. We literally told the owner that we didn’t want to leave as we enjoyed the apartment so much. We will be back.
Nice apt close to lake, very helpful owner.
Plenty to do in the area and lots of information available .
This two-bedroom apartment is so well-appointed and comfortable and the owners are very welcoming. The location is perfect, right on the lake, very easy to drive to the nearby village or the few km into Rotarua itself for food etc but it’s away from any noise (or sulphur smell). So many wonderful sights to see, we made easy day trips to Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves as well as visiting the closer thermal areas and a couple of enjoyable walking tracks.
The apartment is great, very clean and tidy with everything you could need during your stay. The apartment has a good layout for couples as the bedrooms are at opposite ends. The hosts were perfect, there if we needed them but also gave us our own space. It is a little bit further out from Rotorua town than we would have liked on reflection but if you want to be close enough to do everything but not in the town then this is perfect. Thanks Mike and Glendyr.
Firstly I will say that my standards are very high (my husband thinks too high!). We have rented over a dozen flats worldwide. Tui Glen is in my top 2! The booking process was fine with the owner, Glendyr, consistently responding promptly to any questions I had. The location is perfect. It is quiet, a short distance from town, directly on the lake and best of all - absolutely NO sulfur fumes!
The flat went beyond our expectations. It was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated and furnished, cozy and inviting, stocked with everything you would possibly need, and great satellite TV. That last one was important as we, unfortunately, had 2 days of torrential rain during our stay.
The flat is above the garage of the owner's home. They have gone to great lengths to give guests lots of privacy. You will have your own entrance and designated parking space. I was grateful to be able to do a load of laundry using the w/d shared with the owners. The bed was very comfy. Grocery stores are a short drive to town where we also found lots of restaurants and cafes.
I cannot thank the owners enough for a lovely stay - despite the rain. My best advice to readers is this flat is a MUST. You will want for nothing.
