Be as formal or relaxed, as you like. The more energetic can play tennis on the championship-sized court, with rackets and balls supplied.

If a more peaceful and quiet time is what you prefer, relax in the heated outdoor massage spa pool, or a secluded quiet spot snuggled away in the gardens, both with wide sweeping views of Lake Rotorua.

A private guest lounge is available for you to relax in front of an open fire in the winter, with a book or listen to quiet music. Spacious landscaped gardens, with roses, rhododendrons, camellias, and many native trees are a feature of A Panoramic Country Homestay.

With over 25 species of birds frequenting our home, you can relax and listen to the sound of birds chirping. Native birds such as tuis and blue herons are frequently heard and seen on the property.

There are many walks around the area, a specialty being Hamurana Springs where 450,000,000 litres of water come out of the ground per hour. Trout, ducks and swans can be seen in the stream.

Dinner at our Accommodation in Rotorua

Dinner is available but prior notice is essential. It will be served at the large Rimu dining table. We do serve a complimentary glass of wine with dinner, but as we do not have a liquor licence, please feel free to bring your best-liked bottle with you.

Our favourite dinner consists of fresh homemade soup in winter, garlic bread with roast homegrown lamb, roasted potatoes, kumeras and pumpkin with a variety of green vegetables, followed by either homemade apple pie or fresh fruit salad or ice cream. The emphasis is on homecooked meals, with homegrown or local produce. We have our own vegetable garden and fruit trees.

Three course dinner with wine: NZ$45.

Rotorua Fishing Guides

We particularly recommend Ernie and Margaret Skudder as the people to help organise river and lake trout fishing. Fishing trips include fishing in the freshwater rivers, streams and lakes that surround Rotorua and provide world-class Rainbow and Brown trout.
