Guest house -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Rotorua, Rotorua District, Bay of Plenty Region, North Island
Architecturally designed Rototaha Lodge is only 30mins from Rotorua in New Zealands North Island. Built specifically to cater for guests who enjoy privacy and natural beauty. Although not close enough to see or hear them your hosts Hugh and Mandy Collins can arrange everything you might require from a three course meal or a picnic on the lake to fly fishing and scenic helicopter flights. Ask Mandy to prepare your meals for you (she will endeavour to use produce grown from her own extensive gardens or sourced from local farmers and growers) or head out into the gardens to pick your own herbs and seasonal vegetable to cook your own.
