About this listing

Escape to Absolute Lakeside a delightful Home on the shores of Lake Rotorua, only 5 mins drive from town. Relax admiring the lake and garden or use us as a base to explore all Rotorua has to offer. A complementary light breakfast is provided and kayak available.

There is a queen sized bed in this room. If you would prefer two single beds, I have another listing - Absolute Lakefront Twin Room. If you would like a lake view, please see the listing Absolute Lake Front Premier Room.

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.
