Great place to stay. Picturesque, quiet, handy to town, restaurants and cafe near by as well as white water rafting, owner friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for a week in the cottage. Such a wonderful place to stay, very peaceful and away from any thermal smells. Lake Rotorua and Rotoiti so close. Janice is a wonderful host. Definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.

Absolutely perfect stay! From the warm greeting from Janice when we arrived to the departure. A swim in the river from the back garden was incredible. The water was clean, warm and swimming with the surrounding wild bird life and jumping trout was just surreal.
The garden and river side was so relaxing we never turned on the television the whole time we were there.

The place was clean and tidy and had everything you need. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a peaceful stay away from the bustle of town. Although town is close enough to access if needed.

Will definitely return.

Clean and tidy and well situated to some of Rotorua's most splendid (yet free and less well known) attractions!
Janice's holiday house really deserve's more stars but the things I looked for in choosing this house unfortunately fell over on arrival.

I chose this location because of the windmill to surprise my wife (there is a romantic reason for this). Unfortunately it was seriously damaged some time ago and no longer has sails, amongst other things. I would enquire whether it has been fixed before booking if this is your drawcard.

The wifi (which was needed) doesn't work well either (regardless of position in the house though double-bed room is best). The signal is good if you go outside and walk to the adjoining main house but that's a tad inconvenient.

If the fridge gets fixed (it is noisy at night and we had to turn it off) and the hot-water in the shower gets turned up a bit (max=warm) then this comfortable cabin certainly deserves a 5 star rating.

We are working on the windmill restoration....takes time and a lot of energy. The wifi is fixed and works in every room...no problem. The fridge....no one else has an issue with it so that is a mystery and the hotwater has always been at the legal maximum. I am sorry that you were disappointed as we endeavor to give our guests a happy and memorable stay.

My mother and I had a lovely time there even during the winter thanks to the several heaters and the electric blankets. Definitely a nice place to stay in.

When we arrived tired after a long drive it was such a joy to be welcomed by Janice in her lovely garden. As she had friends staying in the unit Janice showed us to the cottage. Although a little old fashioned the cottage was so comfortable with all home comforts. Janice was so informative and we visited all the attractions she recommended. We were so glad that we booked this accommodation as it is far enough out of the town to avoid the smell but close enough to enjoy all the region has to offer.

The unit itself was neat, clean, spacious, homely and comfy. Three of us enjoyed our stay very much and would love to get back there again. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful stay in Rotorua.

The 4 of us had a great 2 nights in the cottage. The couple that own the property were very friendly and accommodating, and they gave us good advice on sightseeing in the area. The property is beautiful which includes a well kept garden, a good view of the channel and a quaint windmill. For the price offered, this is a place definitely to consider. Tea, coffee and milk was also provided which was a bonus.
