Peter and Mike concentrate on what you want, from the type of sheets you prefer to dietary restrictions. They cooked up delicious and beautiful breakfasts for us, each one better than the one before, starting us out well fueled for the day. They offered me many suggestions on activities, often they could offer discounts too. They called and set up the eco-tour zip-line trip for me, the highlight of my Rotorua stay.
The gardens are beautiful, lush and restful. The location is across the street from the Kuirau Park with its free foot baths and geothermal sights plus formal gardens and recreation facilities, and only 5 blocks from the convention center. They sent me out to watch the rafters at Okere Falls and let me discover for myself the 2013 world rafting championships in progress there!
As for details: the bed was 'Goldilocks' comfortable. They provided a fridge with coffee and tea making supplies. The en-suite was clean and tidy. The spa pool was spotless. Mike and Peter did laundry for the other guest while we were there. They could advise us on activities, restaurants, petrol stations - anything we asked about they were eager to help us with. The house is cosy but not cluttered, with many artistic and eclectic touches, some made by Peter! The garden's in such good shape it's hard to believe they've only been there 14 months.
My husband was there for a conference and enjoyed the strolls to and from the conference center. With Peter's directions we were able to take the scenic route there through Kuirau Park and the Ohinemutu Maori settlement to the meeting.
