Guest AccessThere is an outside shower and toilet for guests to use if needed. Guests have free access to kayaks, stand up paddle board and fishing gear, however only if the weather is suitable and the lake is calm. They may roam around the garden and along the beach at their leisure. Pick anything from the vege garden. Interaction with GuestsGay and Bill enjoy meeting and talking with their guests when appropriate for both. Having spent more than 20 years living around the Pacific Islands and traveling the world they have some fine artifacts and stories to tell. We have some discounted deals which are available to guests re whitewater rafting and the zip line. Gay has arranged with some tourist operators for discounts for her guests. Gay is an avid mountain biker and keen to show anyone around the tracks in the redwoods when you hire your bike or bring your own. Just ask? The NeighborhoodWe have neighbours who have traveled widely and like to interact with our guests. They may invite them out fishing or for a wine. Close by is the Okere Store for the best coffee in town and super organic foods, this is a gathering place for locals and white water enthusiasts. Getting AroundNo public transport is available however the hosts will take guests into the city or arrange for a tour etc to pick them up from the gate or the beach if they want to go fishing or helicopter sight seeing. However it is best to have your own transport. Other Things to NoteOur apartment and home were built in the 1970's. Some say its dated, of course it is, but it is clean and warm and comfortable. If you are looking for a modern apartment with mod cons then don't book with us. If you want a relaxing stay then you will enjoy our place. As we don't charge a cleaning fee to keep the price reasonable we would appreciate guests leaving the place as tidy as possible, dishes done and put away. Linen taken off the beds and put in the laundry. The kitchen floor swept if you have made a mess. We recycle our rubbish and would appreciate guests following the guidelines set down in the welcome book. Please wash your plastic containers and put them in the baskets provided.

The SpaceWelcome to RotoVegas! You will find our lovely and cosy unit in at the end of "the strip". It is located in Whakarewarewa, which is also home of the Pohutu Geyser. It is a two-story unit with an open planned fully equipped kitchen downstairs, breakfast bar, good size table with 4 chairs and big cosy couch to cuddle in front of our 52' plasma TV. Upstairs you will find a small mezzanine with some fitness equipment, two bedrooms (which one of them will be yours), bathroom with shower and a separate toilet. Your bedroom has a double or queen bed (not quite sure about the size) and a built in wardrobe to store your stuff. There are also shelves and a TV. It is not the biggest room but definitely sufficient if you are planning to explore Rotorua during the day and not spend the whole day in your room. Fyi: Breakfast is not included, however you are more than welcome to use tea/coffee/sugar, spices, oil etc if you'd like to do some cooking. Often I am not home so it's hard sometimes to get breakky organized. All in all it is really cosy and welcomes you to feel at home away from home. There is a bus stop just in front of our unit, which takes you in 10 minutes to the city centre. A dairy is approx 5 minutes walk away and a bit further down is a Wholesale. Fish n Chips shop and a small cafe is around the corner approx 5 minutes to walk. I provide you with maps, recommendations for most of the attractions in and around Rotorua. I love traveling around the world and meeting new people. I am open minded and love to welcome you in my home. I am working full time but on my days off I am happy to show you around if you would like. Please feel free to ask about more details. Guest AccessThe whole house except my bedroom. Interaction with GuestsI am definitely available - even if I am not at home I'll be around and can be contacted anytime. The NeighborhoodIt is usually a quiet area but our neighbors are having the odd party every now and then. They usually shut it down before midnight Getting AroundThere is a bus stop just 50 m away from our house, which brings you to Te Puia (Pohutu Geyser) within 4 minutes and to the city centre within 15. The public transport system in Rotorua isn't soo great but the bus runs every half an hour during the week and hourly during weekends.

The SpaceDanish Blue is designed to be a home-away-from-home. The name derives from my Danish heritage and collection of Royal Copenhagen plates, not the cheese. However, if you request blue cheese, I am happy to provide it! Unlimited free wi-fi is provided to guests. There is a fully fenced and private back yard with plenty of seating both on the decks and the lawn. The house is an original Lockwood and it "talks" to you a little, as do most wooden houses - the odd creak and groan as the wood expands and contracts. I find it quite an endearing characteristic of Lockwoods along with their warm wooden interiors. We have recently added a large TV to the lounge with MySky TV and a multitude of movie, news and sports channels. MySky has the added advantage of letting you pause and/or record programs. The master bedroom with a queen bed has a walk-in closet through to your own shower and vanity. It also has a separate TV with a blu-ray player (but not Sky). There are two bathrooms but only one toilet - a separate room between the bathrooms. The second bathroom has a bathtub/shower and a vanity. Two more bedrooms each have a pair of single beds. You can push the two single beds together and add a foam topper to make a king-sized bed in the front bedroom - I have king sheets and comforter available for that purpose. (And I will organise it ahead of time if you ask me when you book.) The back bedroom is off the garage and has its own ranch slider opening onto a small deck in the back yard. The four beds sleep six and there is a rollaway bed for one more person (to set up in the garage or lounge). The beds all have quality American cotton bed linens and down blankets. I am likely to decline a booking for seven people unless it is for more than two nights (too much setting up/cleaning/laundry for a brief stay) and in fact I generally discourage groups of 7 as it stretches the resources of the house a little far and is not as comfortable for my guests. The house is heated with a flued gas heater - instant heat with the flick of a switch, and it is always warm and comfortable. The back bedroom is the only place the heater doesn't reach and we have installed a panel heater for the wall as well as providing a separate heater for the colder months for that room. Electric blankets on all the beds keep you toasty. In the summer, there is plenty of cross ventilation and I have added a fan for the extra hot days (though hot days are not common here in Rotorua where it is normally very temperate.) The bookcase is full of good reading for adults and children alike, with plenty of games to play as well, and DVDs for children and adults. I'm happy for you to borrow a book if you become engrossed, as long as you post it back to me! I have recently added a 3-seater couch to the lounge (not shown in photos yet) so there is now seating for seven people. (Previously I had beanbags for the youngsters; they are now available to take outside in the summer months.) There are plenty of sheets and towels, including a few beach towels that you are welcome to use away from the house. We have recently added a gas barbecue which lives under a cover in the back yard. There are also tables and chairs outside for al fresco dining. I have put two adult cruiser-style bikes in the garage - one has a basket for shopping - and both have bike locks for tethering them if you go into town. There is also a bagful of helmets of varying sizes as helmets are compulsory for bike riders in NZ. Guest AccessI like to meet my guests and show them around but if I am not available I have a key safe that can be used for access. The guests can access the golf course (walk onto the fifth fairway) after visiting the clubhouse first to buy their rounds. We can supply a set of golf clubs and a trundler (men's or women's) if requested. There is a single garage with automatic door attached to the house. This provides secure storage for golf clubs or bicycles. There is room for two cars in the parking space beside the house. Maximum cars allowed at the property is two - any others are to be parked on the street as our neighbours need to be able to get in and out. The back yard is fully enclosed - safe and private. The gate has a lock to make the house even more secure. Interaction with GuestsI live in a home that is a stone's throw away from Danish Blue and I'm nearly always available by phone. I'm happy to provide advice and help for most anything you might need. I do not provide breakfast on a daily basis but try to have a loaf of fresh bread baking on your arrival, and provide milk, cereal and spreads. If you have a particular dietary requirement, please let me know. The NeighborhoodSophia Street is one of the nicest streets in Rotorua, central and tree-lined and leafy. In season the camellias and rhododendrons are spectacular. Danish Blue is just around the corner from a park, a dairy, a great fish & chip shop, and a few more minutes from a good supermarket. The golf course is merely a putt away, through a gate onto the fifth fairway. Downtown is approximately a 20-minute walk away. And an even quicker bike ride of course! My biking guests can get to the Redwoods and great biking trails in short order as well as having secure storage for all their bikes when they're not out on them. Getting AroundI am willing to pick guests up from the airport if I am in town, and there are plenty of buses for getting around in town. Central Rotorua is an easy 15-20 minute walk away and you can hire bikes there as well. If you have your own car, Danish Blue has a safe parking area for your vehicle. Other Things to NoteRotorua is mountain bike paradise and also a great place for walkers/hikers. The famous Redwoods with walking and cycling tracks are a few minutes away by car or bike. There are all sorts of adventurous activities available on the outskirts of Rotorua, from the Zorb to the luge to jetboating plus heaps more. And relaxing activities - the Polynesian Spa and Queen Elizabeth Spa (famous for treating arthritis) to name just two. And of course if you want to discover a bit about Maori culture, you have a surfeit of choices. You shouldn't leave NZ without indulging in at least one hangi, and the Maori concerts are spectacular as well. And we are just around the corner from the Whakarewarewa Village. The famous Buried Village is a short drive away, and there are many choices of hot springs to bathe in.
