Kate's place is absolutely beautiful! The view over the lake is breathtaking:) The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable! Kate prepared an amazing breakfast for us in the morning that we enjoyed in the garden right next to the lake. Perfect host and perfect place!

Kate's home was in an ideal location close to most of the tourist experiences and right on the lake. The bed was super comfortable and breakfast fabulous. We never noticed that we were sharing a bathroom. We would recommend staying with Kate and Tim.

We were given a warm welcome and bed which was exactly what my sister and me both needed. They invited us to chat with them in the living room upon our arrival which we loved! We also enjoyed the view of the ocean outside the living room window. And the bed was very comfortable and clean! We would def book with them again .

This is a wonderful place to stay. Kate's place is impeccably clean and situated right on the lake. Her home is 5 minutes from the Skyline and 5 minutes from Eat Street so it is very easy to get around. We highly recommend this to anyone staying in Rotorua.

This is a real AirBnB treasure - hospitality at its very best. Kate's home is modern, bright and has every convenience. The lake views from the deck and garden are fabulous. Kate is an attentive, generous and extraordinarily considerate host - highly recommended!

This location is BEAUTIFUL! Kate was an awesome host. I literally could not recommend how she could have been/made it better. We had the lakefront room and felt like we were at a five star spa. We had a car and found it very easy and quick to get into town (good location with a car, don't know what transit options are like). Kate was very friendly, helpful, accommodating, and informative. Breakfast was A-1! We give our highest recommendation for this bnb; we could not have been treated better.

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.
