No words would suffice in praise of this lovely little paradise. Situated on a the top of a small paddock/hill, it offers lovely views of Lake Rotorua and the surrounding mountains. The exapnsive greenland is just limitless.
About Christine - there is hardly anything to say apart from what has already been written about her. Gracious, accomodating, friendly and a wonderful person. We still wonder how on earth does she maintain this place all by herself. It's a bit difficult to locate being away from the main city (only a short drive away though). However, you forget all that once you get here.
The rooms are very well maintained, the decor is classy. My wife was especially impressed with the attention to details that Christine has given to the smallest of things.
There surely can't be a better host than Christine. Not only did she cook a superb breakfast, she also offered to make a special dish out of the strawberry that we were carrying, of her own accord. We gained a lot of insights into the local culture, North Island and most importantly tips on star-gazing, which turned out of be very handy later on tour.
Hats of to the amazing woman that Christine is and the lovely B&B that she owns and cherishes. All the best!
