  • We loved our weekend away! Close enough to the city to access all that Rotorua has to offer. Far enough away to be in the country so kids could enjoy some space to roam.…

Inside the cottage is light and bright with all the cosy comforts you'll need for a relaxing stay. With a queen bed in the master and two singles in the second bedroom, the cottage comfortably sleeps 4 adults. There is also a small space off the master bedroom where 1-2 fold out single stretcher beds can be used for young children.

The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge areas are functional and spacious, with rural views out almost every window.

You’ll also find complimentary WIFI and a selection of books and games to keep you entertained.

The cottage is set on 6 acres of land, so there's plenty of space to roam and explore. It comes complete with its own bike track and a few resident cows!

Further down the driveway beyond the cottage is the Evoke beauty clinic which specialises in holistic advanced skincare (highly recommended!). You can view their treatments online.

The clinic has a security camera on their building which looks down the shared driveway (for security purposes only).

Kaharoa is a safe, peaceful rural area just outside Rotorua. It offers a slice of idyllic country life, yet is still so close to the city.
