We live in a cosy home surrounded by a well-established garden with a local tui that can be heard throughout the day. We love having friends around for lunches and our home has a relaxed, creative vibe. The bedroom is built on the sunny side of the house and overlooks the garden. Dine inside or out, and enjoy a quiet suburban street. If you require an additional Queen bedroom please view our other listing for this house " sun drenched queen bedroom in cosy creative home"

The space

With Rotorua being the home of Crankworx we are centrally located between both the famous Whakarewarewa Forest [Redwoods] mountain bike and Skyline Gravity mountain bike trails. A large garage, which is alarmed at all times, can be used by guests to store sporting equipment, excess luggage etc. We are a short five minute drive to the center of town if you want to visit some hot pools.

Guest access

As a guest you are welcome to use the kitchen, lounge, dining (inside and out), bathroom and garage.

Interaction with guests

We love meeting people and look forward to sharing stories over a cup of tea or a glass of wine. As a guest we would like you to make yourself at home and enjoy your time in Rotorua. We can share with you our own experiences here, and provide information on the multitude of ways to immerse yourself in our distinctive culture. We both work weekdays but look forward to meeting our guests in the evenings to hear about your adventures here in Aotearoa

Other things to note

We are happy to recommend our favorite restaurants and local "to do's". We may even have time in our busy schedule to show any mountain bikers staying with us our favorite trails. Creatives will also enjoy exchanging artistic ideas ,experiences and a love of art. We have a compendium with maps and a wide variety of information for travelers to Rotorua and places of interest nearby.

Claires place is centrally located close to shops and restaurants(if youre driving). Very tastefully done, her place was great. All amenities were provided. She allowed us to park our car inside the driveway and close to the garage instead of parking on the street which was very nice of her. Overall it was a wonderful stay and recommend anyone wanting to stay in Rotorua to consider this place.

Claire was the ultimate host; this was a true B&B. She had a beautiful breakfast for us both mornings. The room was warm, and had a comfy king sized bed. We will definitely be back to stay if we pass through Rotorua again!
