Bill and Gay rent the down stairs self contained apartment to visitors from around the world. They enjoy talking to their visitors and sharing a glass of wine with them. They have both traveled the world and have lived interesting lives around the Pacific for 25 years. Their 2 grown up children live overseas.

They are both in their late 60's and enjoy the outdoors. Bill is a CPA and has a fine tenor opera voice. Gay is self employed publishing bi lingual children's stories of Rotorua's historical places. She is also a walking guide for Kia Ora Guided Walks in Rotorua. Bill is chairman of the beautiful Maori Anglican Church and many local Maori Trusts.

Left on Feb 01, 2014 for a stay in January 2014
We enjoyed our stay here very much. About 10 min. drive from downtown which was fine for us. Right on the shores of the lake, the kids enjoyed paddling and kayaking and was super safe as the water is only knee-deep for miles around. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable, omner is very friendly with a lot of local knowledge.
