Private room is separate from the house and comes with ensuite, an off road car park and is within easy walking distance to the beautiful lake, two restaurants, 2 dairies, 2 takeaways and a hairdresser. It is not flash but will be clean and tidy for guests.
It takes about 5-10 minutes to drive to the centre of town (depending on traffic) and about 45-60 minutes to walk.
45 minute drive to Rotorua, and about 1.5 hour drive to Mt Ruapehu/National Park, Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton.
The room (separate from the main house) has a queen size bed and there is also space on the floor for a mattress for a child if needed. It comes with a full ensuite which includes a large corner bath to relax in. (The shower is over the large bath so might not be suitable for elderly people). There is a small dining table and chairs. Outside is also a small table and chairs which is a nice spot to unwind. More than welcome to use the lawn and clothesline.
The room has its own private access as it is away from the house and is equipped with a microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster along with dinnerware and cutlery. I am happy for people to put washing through my washing machine in the house when I am around.
Breakfast -although I have not advertised this room with breakfast/meals, I am happy to do so if prearranged for a slight extra charge - depending on what is required. (Payment to be left at departure). Even though I don't keep special breakfast supplies for the room (I find most people prefer to go and enjoy the lake and our cafes) I can generally scrape something together if necessary.
I hope guests will feel free to ask if they need anything extra.
I like to welcome my guests where possible and say hi and find out a little about them. When there are guests in the room I don't venture out to the vege garden which is behind the room. I plan my trips to the garden for when the guests have gone out for dinner or something. I like to let the guests have as much privacy as possible, however, I do enjoy to have a wee catch up with the guests if we happen to cross paths. I would like people to enjoy their stay so will do what I can to make them comfortable.
There is a cat but she is not very cuddly so don't be offended if she doesn't want to be your friend.
No smoking in the room, but outside is ok.
Please ventilate the bathroom to let the steam out after use.
Also if the windows have a lot of condensation please open them a fraction or wipe the moisture away or get me to do it for you.
