We stayed a couple of nights at Broekhaven early this year. Our three boys (5, nearly 3 and 18 months) loved it. They were in their element feeding the chickens and rabbits and holding the baby hedgehogs Debbie was caring for. Our 5 year old stated on arrival "this must be a dream...it's too good to be true" and our nearly 3 year old asked repeatedly throughout each day if we were going back to the cottage that night, then cried for the first half hour of the drive out of Rotorua because he wanted to live in the cottage forever! Our hosts were very welcoming, the cottage had everything we needed and it was lovely to retreat to the peaceful surrounds each afternoon/evening. It was a convenient location for all the tourist attractions in Rotorua, but lovely to be a bit removed from the city. We would definitely head back to Broekhaven on our next trip to Rotorua!
