Our family of 4 stayed at Lakeview Heights for 2 nights in April, 2017. Alan and Georgina were wonderful hosts, the location was beautiful and peaceful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and breakfast was amazing! Our kids enjoyed the children's library and visit with the farm animals.

We had a wonderful time visiting the farm stay. Great hosts and a beautiful spot with lots of animals to delight our little girl - dogs, sheep, goat, chickens, pigs, alpacas and cows. The early morning animal feeding sessions were a big hit. Would highly recommend.

Our family of 4 had a fantastic stay at Lakeview Heights. Cosy, with amazing views. My two city kids were very excited to see the animals and we did the morning feed, particularly loving the sheep (Mary was a favourite), two very friendly dogs, and the Alpacas. We were very comfortable there, and the hosts were very relaxed people, which...

Hello Irina, we are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have hundreds of guests staying here each year and fortunately their views are very different from yours. Rotorua is famous for it's sulphur smell due to all the geothermal activity in the area. Luckily we do not generally suffer from that but perhaps the wind...

Had a lovely 2-night stay at Lakeview Heights. The house was beautiful and the view was spectacular. We love the farm animals and the 2 friendly dogs, Bess and Tui. Alan and George were wonderful hosts. Helpful suggestions on where to go and what to do especially those not included in the guide books. We have a fantastic time.

Had a pleasant stay, we loved the views, kids loved the farm. Morning run down and up the hill was a highlight! while challenging the spring and natural forest at the bottom of the hill is a great location. Thank you George and Alan for your hospitality.
