“Perfect Place Relax and Launch Explorations From”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2014

As an avid traveler and lover of staying in homes rather than hotels. We found this house to be a real treat. All the description are accurate. We enjoyed cooking and hanging out as the sun sets on the lake. I only wished there was a few fishing poles. I heard later that there are a lot of great fishing places near by. Thanks Kerry for the hospitality, we hope you enjoyed the tea. We will send you some of the photos we took, maybe you can put them up on the web for others to enjoy.

Our group of 8 friends stay at "the Willows" in Rotorua for 3 nights, and loved every min. Kerry was responsive and helpful during the on-line booking, deposit, paying part. He stopped by to make sure we were set, and left contact info. The house is amazing, the location ridiculously beautiful! Our favorite part was eating our Bbq'd dinner outside, enjoying the garden and lake in our backyard! Perfect for 2 families, or a group of friends. We made good use of the hot tub and kayaks, but didn't watch one single DVD (there are over a thousand) . . . because there's is so much to do within 10 min! - Jane

“Slice of Heaven!”

My friend, my sister and I stayed in this beautiful home for a week and enjoyed every minute! The grounds are lovely, your own Secret Garden, and the lake is perfect - black swans cruising by at all times. Kerry was extremely responsive, flexible and kind. It was a joy to stay there and I would love to return someday.

“Great location at a reasonable price”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

We loved our stay here. We stayed with another family and the place was large enough that we could enjoy our own privacy when we wanted it, but also enjoy time together (down on the lake, on the deck, in the spa etc) at other times. We are already talking about a return trip!

“breath taking”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2013

we arrived at the most fantastic home right on the water and couldnt be more thrilled with the accomodation. sooo much room and beds and living rooms, fantastic BBQ which we cooked morning noon and night. Hot tub after a days sight seeing was just the ticket. will stay again in a heartbeat.

“Lovely home with a lovely view”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2012

The home was fantastic! We were two families with 4 young children and the house had plenty of room for us all. The kids loved the DVD collection and also being close to the lake to feed the swans. The owner was fantastic and very helpful when we needed his help. The location was only a short drive from all the places in Rotorua that we had planned on seeing. Don't drive too fast down the street or you may miss the driveway. The only issue we had was with the Rubbish. I think that was more to do with Nz's odd system of leaving it in bags on the side of the road. I would highly recommend this property and would love to go back and stay there again!!

“Space, space, and more space”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2012

If you want a large house to fit one or ever two families this is it. This house is massive with 3 different living areas and 4 different sleeping rooms. If you're looking for a serviced apartment this is not it. It is a holiday house and you are expected to leave the house cleaned, rubbish removed and beds made. The owner was onsite - but respected our privacy and space. It was a little strange at times feeling like you were living in someone elses house with family photos, dvd collections and other personal items - but it all made for a well supplied base. Great house, great location and great price. Would recommend to other families so long as they dont mind taking shoes off.

“The Willows + Kerry = the best”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2012

This was our first trip to New Zealand, and coming all the way from California we had a lot of questions. Kerry was very respnsive and helpful both in our email exchanges before we came and again in person during our stay. The property and the house are wonderful and Kerry is a great host. He will make himself as scarce or available as you want. He is a really great guy and wants only the best for his guests. The home is very spacious, clean, and in good order and sits in a beautiful garden setting right on the lake. If we ever get back to New Zealand we will definitely be staying with Kerry again.

“Perfect for everyone”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2011

This place is just awesome, it has something for everyone the kids loved it. The house is so spacious and clean, the garden is very peaceful. The owner Kerry was great, made it so easy from beginning to end which was just awesome. Would recommend to everyone to stay at this place. My family and I will definitely be returning.
