“Tui Bach is a great house for big family to stay, so clean and tidy, Mike and Paulin were so helpful when we get there and thanks Mike for helping us with the kayak. The house is locate in a very quiet neighborhood and just a step away from the lake, there is a local beautiful hot spa very close to the house and we had a wonderful time there. We had a great time in the house overall, will come back again. Thanks for everything.”

“Very nice comfortable and feel lots of love in this villa. 30min from Skyline Rotorua but it is alright if you rent a nice car. It is appreciated to drive there. The children have loved this place: games, billard, babyfoot, TV in each piece, outside you have nice walk along the lake to see black swan and ducks. Very nature and relax area. Plus Mike and his wife Pauline was at our disposition at the arrival to explain us how everything is working in the Villa. We will definitively recommend it! “

“Kereru Lodge is a beautiful home and location. There is nothing you would wish for that wasn’t provided. We enjoyed catered meals, the open fire made it very cosy and the heat pumps kept it beautiful and warm. The catering service we received was exceptional. Thank you for making our stay perfect.”  
“Frances was brilliant to deal with and made sure our stay was perfect.”

“Tui Bach is ‘holiday luxury’ and the owners are very generous with their kayaks and other equipment. Access to the water is simple and the home layout suits larger and smaller numbers very well. We felt very welcome and cared for during our stay.”

 “Kereru Lodge is stunning and very well equipped… it had everything we needed and more! It was clean and everything was in great condition. We appreciated all the basics in the cupboards that we were able to use such as spices and the toiletries in the bathrooms. The location was beautiful on the lake front and we enjoyed the outdoor fire. The soda spring hot pools were a short drive away and were amazing to have nearby. Thanks for a great stay!”
“Very responsive and helpful. Mike was also friendly and nice when showing us around.”
