We spent one night at Kate's house. The house and the views are amazing. We watched the sunset and sunrise from the garden and it was astonishing! Unfortunately, we didn't meet Kate since she was away, but her neighbour provided us with everything we needed. We highly recommend this place if you are around!

Kate and Tim were fantastic hosts and very friendly. The house was clean, comfortable and one might even say luxurious. We could not have asked for anything more in regards to breakfast, especially when we had a beautiful, sunny, lakeside view. We only stayed one night but regret not staying another to get Kate's recommendations about activities in Rotorua. We definitely recommend staying with Kate!

Staying at Kate's place made our visit to Rotorua many times better. The breakfast every morning was rich, more than anyone could eat. The bathroom was huge and luxurious. The lake view every morning was stunningly beautiful. Kate was a wonderful host, she helped us where she could, we even watched Game of Thrones together! I can only recommend staying at Kate's place, don't miss your chance if she has a free room!

You cannot go wrong at Kate and Tim's home. Newly refurbished, very comfy bedroom, great bathroom and an incredible view of Lake Rotorua lapping up to their backyard. They provide a very satisfying continental breakfast and full kitchen privileges as well. One of our best AirBnb stays ever!

Kate User ProfileKate is a superhost.

I love being an Airbnb host - it is a tremendous privilege to meet people from all over the world and share something about their lives in communities so diverse from my own. Things I can't live without; family, friends, pets and my garden.
