Places to stay in Rotorua
Your hosts are Barbara and Phillip, semi-retired and happy to share the downstairs apartment. It is an entire place, independent of us with a parking space and side entrance. The apartment is downstairs and you will hear us upstairs if we are home. Earplugs may be required for complete quiet. We are located in a lovely, well-appointed suburb of Rotorua only 10 minutes drive to the centre of town. Rotorua has a lot to offer whether you are on a budget or not there will be something to do.
The apartment is the downstairs of the main house. You are independent of us. Although there is one bedroom it is a large space with a double and single bed. I have a sofa bed in the lounge and a portacot that can be added if necessary. You will hear us moving around upstairs.
The apartment a 10 minutes drive to the town centre, about an hours walk. There is a bus service that others have managed. There are shops near by where you can buy food, take-a-ways or eat in. There is very little through traffic so the area is very quiet. You can walk to the lake edge if you would like to.
  • Large, comfortable space, really great amenities, and conveniently located. Would definitely recommend.

  • Speck clean. Amazing hospitality. Great location. Stylish space. Barbara and Esther were great hosts and made sure we had everything we needed, and also offered some great tips to explore the area. Definitely recommend to fellow travellers.

  • Barbara's place is lovely, it's in a great location with beautiful views of the lake. We were travelling with our one year old and arrived to a portacot set up and high chair ready at the table, we didn't even request these so it was such a lovely surprise that Barbara had these ready knowing we were travelling with a toddler. The place was roomy and clean with lots of local tips, we would definitely stay again!

    Christine2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Only stayed a night T Barbara’s place but will definitely be back. Space was clean and welcoming - you have everything you need. Thanks for the hospitality x

    Pearl2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The property is well organised and complete with all the amenities required. This included a baby changing area outside the bathroom. From the property it takes nearly an hour to walk into the centre of Rotorua to visit the thermal park and restaurants. Barbara was away during our stay, however she had arranged for her friend to greet us and to provide us with any help that we needed upon arrival. This was incredibly kind of her and greatly appreciated. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Rotorua.

    Alice2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A very clean well appointed and organised Airbnb space. It was in a lovely location in a quiet road, although a little away from the centre of town. Parking in Rotorua is plentiful so getting downtown to the restaurants, the sightseeing spots and the night street market was not a problem. I would stay here again if in Rotorua again.

  • Lots of space to make you feel at home while travelling. Bed was very comfortable (best on our whole nz trip!) and the family room was a nice space to unwind in at the end of the day. Breakfast helped us get a quick start each day and although we didn’t cook in the apartment, everything we would have needed was there. Adorable cat greeted us in the morning at the front door and loves a good head scratch.

    Heather2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • nice private section of a house. Small and cute, very clean.

    Betty2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here in town. The perfect location if you are staying for a few days and want to see a lot of the area. It was easy to find, easy to park on the street, and the check in was easy as well. The hosts were incredibly gracious. We had the chance to meet Anthony and his son and talk to them about the culture, the history, the location activities, and about the landscapes. They were very sweet and thoughtful. Hinemoa had a large amount of travel brochures and pamphlets for us to read. This was a nice touch and helped us plan our time. The tiny kitchen had everything that we needed for breakfasts and snacks and light cooking. The bedrooms were some of the softest beds that I have ever slept on at a B&B. The green space in her backyard was enjoyable and we loved the little visit by the kitten and dog that they had. We enjoyed every bit of the trip! Great visit.

    Tom2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • I and family loved staying there for one night that we spent in Rotorua, very tidy place, very pleasant to stay in!

    Andrew2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place!!!

    Natsuki2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very good hostel and host Answer your questions promptly It's not mentioned in the introduction, but there's an electric mat in the bed so you can't feel cold in bed. It was so satisfying that I was lucky to have stayed at this house in Rotorua. The only downside is that It's about 4km from the city. If you don't think there are any tourists coming to Rotorua by public transport, I think 4km is not a long distance by car. I was much more satisfied than I expected.

    My place is close (a short drive) to tourist attractions and the cycleways and trails that Rotorua is famous for. It's a peaceful and quiet space, the cosiness of the generous comfy beds, and the kitchen and en suite shower make for a great stay. Couples, solo or twin adventurers, and business travellers, even a 3rd person (15 or older) if sleeping preferences permit (the single bed can be separated by a curtain from the Queen bed). There are no specific safe play areas for children.
    This space includes a dining area with separate writing desk, a queen and a king single beds which can be separated with a curtain. The kitchen has a microwave, induction hot plate, electric frying pan, pots and pans and equipment for making simple meals, there is a sitting area with a 'Smart' TV and there is Wifi internet access. There is a heat pump for heating/cooling and a separate shower room with wash basin & WC, soap & shampoo, and hair drier.
    Comfy accommodation, peaceful and quiet suburban garden setting, close (a short drive) to all that Rotorua has to offer

  • Good value for money. Would stay there again. Great breakfast!!

    Andreas2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Gaelyn in her nice, cozy home was wonderful. It was the perfect place for relaxing and resting after several days with long distance drives and loads of activities. The breakfast was certainly one of the best that I was ever offered in an Airbnb, consisting of different types of muesli/cornflakes, yoghurt, fruit salad as well as a rich assortment of jams and spreads to put on toast. A side note for animal lovers: Be prepared to share the house with Autumn, Gaelyn's shy, but very sweet cat, who sometimes meowed quite a bit, although that never bothered my girlfriend nor me.

    Fabian2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying with Gaelyn. Her home is in a central location in Rotorua. She provided great suggestions for things to do around Rotorua. For example, go check out the red woods at dusk, so you can see the trees in the daytime and when the lights come on! She provided a delicious breakfast in her clean and comfortable home and she is really easy to talk to! Would definitely recommend staying with her!

    Tanis2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing as it’s close to a lot of the main attractions! Gaelyn was really lovely and ensured we had a comfortable stay. She also gave us some great recommendations before we head off to discover Rotorua! Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Anala2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Gaelyn was very welcoming and lovely. Her home was just what we needed for a nights stay. Everything was super clean and the beds were very comfy. Gaelyn went to the next level with an amazing breakfast spread! We really enjoyed our night here. Thank you Gaelyn.

    A private self-contained studio, just a stones throw away from the Redwoods Forest. A quiet, safe and secure property. TV and wifi, Air conditioning In summer and heatpump in winter. Plenty of safe street free parking available outside the property.
    This charming space is perfect for all adventure seekers ready to explore Rotorua's thermal wonderland. It's a fully self contained studio loft, only a two minute walk to the Redwoods Forest. Lynmore is a beautiful neighbourhood, with a tennis club and the Redwoods shopping centre within a very easy walking distance. If traveling without a car, the local bus service is fantastic - buses into town every 10-15 minutes. Only ten minutes by car in the other direction is the fantastic Blue and Green Lakes and Lake Tarawera. There's a small self contained kitchenette with a two burner cook-top, microwave, fridge, tea and coffee facilities. We supply bedding and towels to sink into after an adrenalin filled day out exploring the sights. To keep you in total comfort throughout the seasons there is a reverse cycle heat pump/air conditioning unit. The loft is above a garage (though not in use) but has it's own entrance through a lovely cottage garden behind our home. You'll have all the privacy you could want, but we are only to happy to help you if you have any questions. If there's anything extra you need or something which might make your stay here better...just ask!
    We love Lynmore! It is green, lush and dedicated to outdoor living. Having the Redwoods and the Blue/Green lakes in the neighbourhood encourages us to get out and get active. Wonderful cafes and an excellent gastropub within walking distance.
  • It was a lovely stay. Chloe is an awesome host and had some helpful tips. Highly recommend.

    Julian2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Chloe was a great host and on hand to give any help or advise. The loft is spacious and well equipped with a comfortable bed. It was a lovely place to stay.

    Joyce2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Our visit to Rotorua was made immensely better because of Chloe’s superb tips and guidance on where to go and what to do. We so enjoyed talking with the family; that’s why we stay in AirBnb’s - to meet and chat with locals. The place was very quiet and we slept well. The shower was great with plenty of hot water and water pressure. The location was excellent. We took a very long walk in the nearby redwood forest. So peaceful! We would stay there again.

    Ted2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chloe and Andy were excellent hosts, going above and beyond in helping us out with local tips, and even doing a load of washing for us. We had a fab time in Rotorua and the apartment is well-located near the redwoods and lots of nice places to walk. We enjoyed a trail-run round the blue lake which is only about a 10 min drive away. Was great to have a hot plate so we could do a bit of cooking as well.

    Chloe2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Tidy clean happy loft near the Redwoods. Host was super friendly and helpful. Highly recommended place to stay.

    Tracey2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This studio is in a great location on the edge of town right next to the amazing Redwoods and on the road out to the lakes swimming, boating and walking areas. Yet it’s in easy walking distance to local shops and cafés. It’s a great base for exploring this lovely area as well as being quiet and comfortable, with good facilities for cooking if you want to self-cater.

    Suzy2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location if you want to walk to the Redwoods, and if you have a car then it's a short couple of minutes drive to downtown. The streets in this area are quiet and the hosts were welcoming.

    Our 1952 Kiwi house has been undergoing a make over and is now a fun loving, friendly home that is welcoming to all. It has an ideal location that is only a 5 minute drive to town, a 5 minute walk to the local supermarket and Rotorua's International Stadium, and situated on a regular bus route. We happily invite you stay with us and visit our amazing city.
    The outside of the house is still needing some TLC, and there is plenty of off street parking on the grass at the front of the house. The inside of the house is pretty much completed its renovation. You are more than welcome to use the kitchen so long as you remember to clean up after yourselves ;-).

  • First of all Lynette is an amazing host. The room is very comfortable and stylish, with lots of books and brochures, and it has a separate entrance - still the kitchen and the bathroom are just a door away. The house has all amenities you might need during your stay, also two very friendly cats. The house is sparkling clean. You can park in the garden. All attractions are a short ride away. Never stayed in such a comfortable airbnb especially for this price. Would 100% recommend staying there. Thank you.

    Júlia2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

For all the other activities you'll find some information in the cottage. Shane&Jules have been very friendly and communicated well. The cottage has all you need to spend some great days in Rotorura. There even were some cold drinks in the fridge and cereals/toast for breakfast. I definitely recommend this place for your vacation.

  • Our stay in Julie and Menno’s Garden Room in Rotorua, NZ was most delightful !!! From the beautiful decor of the room and very comfortable bed to the availability of wine and beer, cheese and bread in the refrigerator - our experience was wonderful. We really appreciated the many maps and brochures that were stocked on the table that gave us ideas of what to see and do in the area. So much better than staying in one of the many hotels/motels around the Rotorua area. We highly recommend the Garden Room when traveling through New Zealand.

  • Loved our stay in the Garden Room. Would definitely recommend to others. Julie and Menno thought of every detail and there were many nice touches!

    David2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A brilliant Airbnb with great features! The small private garden is awesome to end the day. In addition, a great breakfast is provided, which we really appreciated. Menno and Julie go out of their way to make suggestions! We can highly recommend it, because the price-performance ratio is incredible !! :)

    Laura2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Greg was a nice host, his apartment was spacious and very well equipped. The bed was very comfy too. Good value for money! You do need a car there as it’s a little way from the centre of town. Thanks for hosting us.

    Sue2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Greg & Lily’s place was perfect for our quick stop in Rotorua. It was just as we expected - clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The thoughtful touches were so sweet - fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, bread and jams. Most Airbnb rentals in the states don’t actually provide breakfast, so it was such a nice surprise that Greg & Lily did. Would definitely recommend staying here! Thanks again!

    You’ll love my place because we have a self contained apartment with your own external entrance, kitchenette, large lounge and separate bedroom with a lovely queen size bed and a court yard with a view of Lake Rotorua. There is lounge space if required and we can host extra's on application as we have spare rooms in another part of our home. We are minutes away from Gravity Park for Mountain Biking, Skyline Skyrides and many more tourist attractions, 5 minute drive to the city.
    We live in a quiet tree lined suburb with a lovely view of Lake Rotorua. Our location is close to the City of Rotorua and the many cafes and restaurants plus loads of tourist spots. Off Road parking.
    On the Point is situated up a drive way away from the main road. It is a quiet tree lined neighborhood. It is very safe with off street parking.
  • Outstanding place! The location is brilliant, with a lovely partial view of the lake. The apartment was spotlessly clean, very tastefully furnished and everything we needed was provided for - including a camp cot that looked brand new (baby times have a tendency of looking rather ratty rather quickly, so we were very impressed).

    Lari2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's apartment is a jewel; full of light, very nice, and with a splendid view of the lake. Mary is a delightful host, we felt at home, helped and pampered. Highly recommended for a holiday or passing through Rotorua

    Walking distance to the Rotorua lake. Watching sunrise and sunset by the lake side. So peaceful inside with a great balance of timber and painted surfaces, plus a wooden fireplace to keep you cozy and warm in winter. Not a fancy house, just providing a comfortable bed and buffet breakfast for tourists who come a long way from anywhere.

Like the chocolates and snacks on arrival, having a mixture of drinks the in the fridge for guests, tea and coffee available, lots of spare toiletries etc. It is those extra little touches that set this place apart.

The Unit itself is super stylish,spacious and close to many shops, for us especially the intercity buses at the I-site Fenton st was only a 5min drive which was super convenient for us. There was extra detail like the towels folded as a flower which was super cute! and ammenities like tea and coffee available, I cannot forget the Spa! so happy it was only for our Unit. It was sectioned off just outside the sliding window, this was actually perfect and super relaxing after a day of site-seeing activities. Overall I'd stay here again!! Thank you for having us Grant!!

    Laken2019-01-15T00:00:00Z

  • While we didn't have any in person interaction, John was very responsive via text and let us know that we could come well before check-in time (due to another Airbnb-er leaving early), which was really nice. The place was clean, and had a fan which was a nice surprise. We had everything that we needed in our own little private part of the home. Also, parking was super easy, and having a grocery store across the street was really convenient.

    Large bright, sunny bedroom in my little three bedroom house with a queen bed :) Central location, in a quiet cul-de-sac close to mountain biking, tourist attractions and bus routes. Fully fenced back yard. I also have another room available, which has two king single beds, which can be joined to be a super king :)
    I live alone in my home, so am excited about having visitors come and stay! I do have another room listed, so you may need to share the facilities with other guests. I also have a little cat called Patches - he's extremely friendly, but I try to keep him out of the bedrooms. There are two or three steps up to each door, and the steps in the front are a little uneven. I'm happy for bikes to be stored inside for safe keeping. While our cul-de-sac is generally a quiet little street, there is a walkway beside my house through to the back which people - largely kids on their way to schools walk through - and it can be heard from the house / garden. Generally lovely, friendly neighbours though :)
    I live in a tiny cul-de-sac. The neighbours are friendly and look out for one another. We have a security camera on the street and neighborhood watch operating, as there is a walkway through to the next street, so can have people walking through, which isn't always nice. Most of my neighbours have dogs, so there can be barking from time to time. Our local kids play together in the street, which you may need to watch out for! :)
  • A wonderful beautiful home! Kathryn wasn’t there so never met her but the check in was super easy and the place was very comfortable. Thoroughly recommended!

  • Kathryn is awesome! She will get out of her way to help and make the best of your stay.

  • Kathryn’s place was the perfect stay for my time in Rotorua. Her home is amazingly located, a short drive from all the attractions, local food, and nearby groceries. The room itself is spacious and comfortable. Kathryn is a fount of knowledge for the surrounding area and the Taupo area as well. Use her great tips to enhance your time in NZ.

    Kathryn2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Sunny, cosy and well decorated house run by a cheerful and lovely host! Kathryn makes you feel at home in 2 minutes. Definitely the best address to stay in Rotorua. I recommand!

  • Kathryn made us feel very welcome in her lovely home. She provided us with everything we needed and helped us to enjoy a really relaxing stay. It was great to have the opportunity to meet and chat with her too. Highly recommended!

    Christoph2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Kathryn is a wonderful host. Privacy had being respected, yet she was there when we need local tips etc & being very responsive in communication when she’s not around. My friend and I stayed for a week, and totally felt like being at home. Very relaxing, loved her beautiful sustainable garden, very cozy place to stay.

  • The place was exactly what we were looking for. 2 rooms with comfortable beds. Many amenities that we just weren't able to take advantage of as we were only using the place as a basecamp for sleeping. Nice and clean space close to where we needed to go. Thanks.

    Paul2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommandable place to stay for your Rotorura experience. Caroline and Guy were very welcoming. We had fresh milk in the refrigerator and could even play table tennis! What a joy!

    Norbert Daniel2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great little spot in a nice location. Washing machine and dryer were very useful given we were travelling with an infant.

    Gemma2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very private, and close to everything you'd want to do in Rotorua.

    Fahim2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice spot. Lots of space and everything was as described. We appreciated the laundry machine and the quiet and comfortable space.

    Brittany2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Located in a residential area, 6 minutes away from town & on the door-step to the beautiful lakes. The redwood (Whakarewarewa) forest is at the end of the street). The flat is totally separate & self-contained with its own entrance, deck & off street parking. If you are not yet signed up with airbnb receive (NZD) $50 off your first trip in any accommodation by following this link https://www.airbnb.co.nz/c/lornam1812?s=41
    Flat is cozy but spacious, it is modern, bright and clean. The space has been set up as an affordable place for families to holiday, we don't charge a cleaning fee so to keep costs down we do ask you to strip the beds and duvets that you have used. You are staying in a residential area so you will experience a typical New Zealand family neighbourhood complete with barefooted kiwi kids running around. We are family friendly and our accommodation will suit anyone who is family friendly too. The bathroom is large, the shower runs off a hot water cylinder so unfortunately the water pressure is not great. There is free unlimited wifi, because you are using the wifi from the main house it can be slow. I have brought a band expander to help the issue. The bathroom has a washing machine, please bring your own soap powder. There isn't a clothes dryer but there is a clothes airing rack or washing line you can use and there is a laundromat a few minutes away. The kitchen has lots of space and has everything you should need; pots, pans, plates cutlery, glasses, tea towels, can opener, rice cooker etc.
    Flat is located in a friendly safe neighborhood. The forest is at the end of the road one way and the other way is the new motion entertainment centre.
  • Great place to stay on your tour of Rotorua. Good location, close to everything.

    Elidia2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • I was here for 3 nights with some friends to explore the thermal area and it was a great location to stay at. The place is large, there is definitely enough space for everyone. The kitchen is well equipped. Would come back for sure!

    Ondine2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great place to make good memories for our family.

    Junghun2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay and very convenient to all activities. The family is very friendly and the house has everything you need.

    Nicole2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Rotorua. Great value, residential location, perfect for families (our group included 4 adults and a 4yo). The flat was spotless and included everything we needed. The backyard and playground was an awesome bonus for the little one. Thank you Lorna and Aaron for a great place to stay in this beautiful region.

    Faye2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks very much Lorna and Aaron for providing the perfectly set up and organised space for us to unpack and unwind. Your tips about the local forest and redwoods walk were spot on. Your location is great. The kids found the local playground absolutely magical

    Shannon2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful holiday. This home was perfect for our family. The kids loved the backyard! It was a very relaxed place to stay, the hosts very hospitable and accommodating! Great place if you have young kids.

    Rebecca2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great. The place is of good value with lots of nice little touches. Hosts were very welcoming.

    The bach is through a forest on the shores of Lake Rotoiti. 20 mins from Rotorua. The bach is a big L shaped room with a separate bathroom. A hot pool is in the bush about a 15 minute walk from the bach. Kayaks to use with a hot water stream to kayak to. Lovely for swimming and waterskiing. Big front lawn. Hot water stream to sit in in the corner of the bay. Biking in the forest. You must bring all your own linen including towels, sheets, pillow cases, bath mat and tea towels. No dogs or tents.
    Door to lake in 10 seconds. Lovely hot pools to kayak too, a hot pool in the bush that you can walk to. Hot water stream in the corner of the bay. Biking in the forest. Manipouri Hotpools a 10 minute boat ride. Hells gate mud pools 10minutes drive away. Redwoods forest lovely place to walk and bike ( you can hire bikes).
    Close to the Hells gate hot pools. They are about an 8 minute drive away.
  • Great location, highly recommend. Excellent host

    Dylan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Just what we expected a lovely little bach in a remote setting that makes the drive to the regions attractions worthwhile. The kids especially loved getting out on the lake in the kayaks provided and we all loved relaxing in the Sulphur pools just up the road at Hells Gates

    Leeona2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little spot right on the lakefront amongst the bush. We had a great weekend if adventuring! Lots of rustic charm. Being able to use the kayaks was awesome. We will definitely book another trip. Thanks Sarah!

    Jennie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful night at Sarah's batch. The location is sensational with its proximity to the lake and distance to Rotorua. We had a lovely evening paddle in the kayak and watch the sunset from the grass in front of the batch. Great facilities, everything you'd need for a great stay (apart from an oven glove!) our only regret is not being able to stay longer, but we will be back.

    Joe2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and comfy boat house in a very special and quiet area with a private lake access and kayaks for free use!

    Quirin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for a quiet family getaway - the extras like kayaks and private lakefront yard were totally worth the distance from Rotorua if you are visiting.

    Sreenath2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Communication and local tips were outstanding but nothing compared to the location and amenities which have to be seen to be believed.

    Kelly2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic bach! Well positioned bach right on the lake front. Super clean with all the amenities you need. Relaxing, private - the perfect place for a wind down and close to everything including Rotoiti hot pools and Rotorua central.
