Clean House
Decent bathrooms
Comfortable Beds
Space for cars and a boat
Flat lawn for kids to run around on
Outdoor areas to BBQ, sit in the sun and watch the world go by
Decent kitchen
Fire Place if needed
Good size Tv for evening movies
Unlimited internet
and
Easy access to the lake for swimming, kayaking, and boating.
It may seem like a lot but Hermoine's cottage has it all.
We enjoy staying there every year in January and have a great time.
I would highly recommend this property for those who want flat access to the lake without crossing roads. It is pretty at any time of year and suits either 1 or 2 families. We can't wait to come back soon.

Hi Kim and Linda,
Thank you so very much for your fulsome feedback just posted on the holiday homes site!
We really appreciate it and it goes without saying , we hope you'll both keep coming back to Hermione Cottage for many years to come.

We hope the year is going well for you both and you're enjoying it in good health too.
We've just returned home after 4 days at the lake and have been busy at the cottage attending to maintenance and transforming the roadside of the section (with Chris Hanson's help on digger) modifying the garden and extending the lawn. We've also had a new ceramic cooktop installed .

A bit of maintenance at our place too, of course and so we may just return next week for a few days relaxation this time after completing the tasks that didn't quite get ticked off.
The colours at the lake are blazing with autumn just now and a couple of cloudless days saw them contrasting so dramatically with the blue….just beautiful!

Again, special thanks for your feedback as the top echelon of "the Hermione Family".

Kind regards
Jennifer and Dean.

Hi Jennifer & Dean,
What can I say except thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience you beautiful holiday home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so close to the Lake, enjoyed evening swims and its not that far from town. It was so peaceful and relaxing, just a place to get away from Auckland busy rushing life. We will be definitely coming back and maybe this time it will be more than 2 nights.
Once again thank you.

Great location next to Lake Tarawera. Comfortable and homely, clean and tidy. Good facilities including kayaks and lifejackets, although A-frame sleepout would benefit from an ensuite. We had a great time. Thanks.

Had an excellent stay at this most beautiful of locations. Everything we needed was easily on hand to make our 4 days fantastic. This is the third time we have been now and we are already planning how we can escape back this year.

This cottage is in a great location, right on the water. It is large enough to accommodate a big group, which is nice. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans etc.Also the beds are comfortable and the duvets are cozy. There are a few downsides that might make me think twice next time. My husband had an allergic reaction, we think it was to the dust, which jumped off the furniture. It needs a thorough cleaning/vacuuming. We also got some flea bites.
The main thing is that the place did not have linens. If you have a large group, are you really going to bring your linens (including towels) for all these folks? So we paid extra for linens ($50 per day) but we had to make up the beds ourselves. I understand if it is self catering that there would be a charge for linens but that seemed pricey for so little service. Would be nice if there were life vests provided as well. Also the cottage is far from Rotorua, which is good bc it doesn't smell like Rotorua does, but the distance could be seen as a plus or minus. Lovely spot though.

We had a family weekend there and our family thought it was a great setting right on the waters edge.Plenty of room for the grandchildren to play.They just loved it.We have a boat and the facilities for that were great. The owners Jennifer & Dean are a lovely couple and were great to deal with.We will return to this beautiful paradise that we enjoy so much.

This is our second week long stay at Hermione and we loved it. A stay here is all relaxation. The cottage is immaculately cared for with nothing missing…with 3 little ones the ability to swim, explore for wildlife, bushwalk, fish and launch the boat, all at your feet would be difficult to replicate anywhere in the world.
