- Don’t expect Wa kainga to be a luxury hotel, this is a real Kiwi home/batch all functional and loving. Bring your own linen or pay extra $12 per person for linen hire (Unfortunately linen upkeep i.e. laundry and ironing is expensive therefore we have to charge the cost).
- House highlights: • 5 bedrooms ( read room configuration) • 2 bathrooms • Updated and equipped kitchen with all the necessary gears for cooking , new stove, dishwasher and fridge/freezer • Dryer and Washing machine plus clothesline • Insulated house with heaters in each room • Fully fenced huge section secure for children and pets • Parking for up to 6 cars • Free Wi-Fi (unlimited) • Smart TV (free view channels) • Outside BBQ facility (patio, alfresco eating/dinning).
- Why spend a fortune for your short term accommodation where that money can go to your adventure activities in Rotorua. Wa kainga is not a luxury accommodation but comfortable and functional enough to look after you and your family/group for your short term stay. Affordable but no compromise on space and facilities:
- – Affordable Holiday Home for family and the groups- $30 per person per night

Really enjoyed staying here. Easily accommodated our large-ish group of people, with plenty of kitchen facilities to allow cooking for all of us, and two bathrooms. Hosts very helpful.

The hosts are friendly and are attentive to enquiries prior to and during the stay. The house is comfortable and simple. It is close to shops but can be noisy as it is in front of the main road.

ENGLISH BELOW La maison se trouve au bord de la highway, à chaque passage de camion, la maison tremble, ce qui n'est pas super pour le sommeil. La douche était bouchée et si on est nombreux (à partir de 4-5 personnes) il n'y a pas d'eau chaude pour tout le monde. Nous n'avions pas bien lu la description, ne vous faites pas avoir comme nous: 12$ par personne pour les draps de maison s'ajoutent au 54€ (soit 78NZD!) de frais de ménage. Nous étions 4 soit 48$ à payer Cash en plus de la facture de Airbnb (attention si vous êtes 8...) C'est à se demander si les commentaires antérieurs sont véridiques. The house is next to the highway, everytime a truck is passing by, the house is moving, what is not so good to sleep. The shower was blocked and if you are more than 4-5 People, there won't be enough hot water. We didnt read well the description : There are 12$ per person for the linen, In addition to the 54€ (~78NZD) for the cleaning. And you have to pay Cash! We were 4, so 48$, be carefull if you are 8...

Response from Shehzad:
Thank you for taking time for the feedback. We also enjoyed poetic exaggeration in your review:). Thank you for accepting that "We didnt read well the description", this is the first thing to do as a traveler to read the property description before booking request. Linen charge was listed clearly and you didn't pay when booking, we had no options except requesting you to pay (very politely). The house is at the last stretch of Hgwy in 60K Zone and this is clearly listed in our listing (not on main 100K HGWAY) and we found what you stated bit exaggeration that house "moves", may be translation from French has something to do with it:) we have people staying via AirBNB for 1 and half month and no one complained of anything! You can also see on book a bach listing that people have praised the value for money and all the property location and house offers. Please note that you have paid the minimum rent for a 5 bedroom clean and tidy property with full section in the middle of the twon with unlimited wifi and all gears, and still nothing was enough to please you:) There are two hot water cylinders for two bathrooms, unless each occupant is taking an hour's shower no chance of running out of water! Again last group stayed for over a month with 10 occupants and no complain! Shower can be blocked only if you block it with your feet, so far no complains after your stay. As a super host (independently assigned status by AirBNB) we go an extra mile to help our guest, like we did for you as your communication skills were not good and we were waiting for you whole day to contact about your time of arrival. We still thank you for staying with us and request you to read description of any property you would like to rent in the future.
