Great house, very well equipped, in a beautiful location.

I have stayed in quite a few holiday homes over the years and this was an absolute treasure, there was literally nothing it was missing, every single detail was taken care of. The DVD collection is extensive, the privacy and peacefulness is lovely. The layout of the house, with the two big lounges (each with their own TV), fast broadband, central heating, spa pool. The gardens are beautiful, we all went for a kayak. Kerry really has it planned out so you have the best possible stay. We will quite definitely come back here again.

A beautifully equipped home, could not have asked for more. We were a group of 9 and plenty of room for all. Perfect location, and we especially loved the kayaks at the bottom of the garden. Cannot wait to return.

Absolutely loved our stay here for a girls weekend. Great facilities with beautiful views and surrounding gardens. Such a great place to relax. Everything was clean, tidy and organised and everything we needed was provided. LOVED the dvd collection! A great range to suit all. The view of the lake was amazing and it was so nice to sit on the deck and look out at the gardens and lake with a glass of wine in hand. Sitting down by the river was also lovely and relaxing with swans coming to visit. Thank you Kerry - you have an amazing place and thank you for letting us borrow it for a weekend :) Sarah and the girls

An awesome location for a girls weekend away. Mountain biking followed by an afternoon spa, tapas on the deck and then a movie night in the fantastic media room. The house was fully set up - comfortable with plenty of space and everything you could need for a weekend away. Good water pressure (important when washing your hair!), comfortable beds, warm (centrally heated) and plenty of room to have space or time out plus table tennis, kayaks, books, DVD's and an exercyle in mountain biking isn't your thing but you want to do some exercise. We had a wonderful time!

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - very rarely left the house as we had shopped before we arrived and everything else was there for our grown-up boys, partners and especially our grandchildren. The kayaks were enjoyed by all as was the proximity of the lake. A short walk to the shops to replenish the milk supplies. Comfy beds, peaceful surroundings. Thanks again Kerry.

My family and I (all 9 of us) has a great time at Lake Edge Luxury at the Willows. Our hosts were very accommodating and the lake edge lcation was superb.
We would definately recomment this to anyone wanting close access to the adventure activities of Rotorua or Taupo, or anyone just wanting to Chill out by the lake.
The house was well stocked with movies, music, and a few games. Of course there was the canoes for the lake, the bbq, and the spa to use as well.
Thanks Kerry and family.
