This is your property ?


Panorama's luxury, architecturally designed homestay is situated on 4 acres of farmland overlooking Lake Rotorua and Legendary Mokoia Island. There are 3 private bathroom/ensuite rooms, with large comfortable beds and magnificent views.

This is the perfect option for tourists looking for something more personal than hotel accommodation. Also the perfect place to stay, close to many of Rotorua's main attractions. If you are looking to enjoy the Rotorua area, the spiritual home of New Zealand's Maori culture and world renowned geothermal wonders, beaches in the Bay of Plenty or Waitomo Caves, or just relax and enjoy the good clean air, then this is the ideal place for you to stay.

Your hosts David and Christine will ensure your stay with them is pleasant and memorable. They take immense pride in their homestay and take personal care in providing a warm peaceful atmosphere where guests can relax and enjoy.

The patio, under the big umbrella, is a great place to take in the panoramic views and listen to many varieties of native birds. In winter you can sit in front of the open fire reading a book, listening to music or just unwinding after an active day and chat with new friends.

Dave and Chris love animals, so expect an enthusiastic greeting from their friendly Collie working dog called Cole. You can also feed the young lambs in spring or hand feed the larger sheep. Other outdoor activities include a game of tennis on the championship-sized court, petanque, feeling the peace and tranquility in the outdoor massage spa pool and the many walks that are available, including Hamurana Springs, where a million gallons (4.5 million litres) of cold water comes out every hour.

All 3 guest rooms offer lake and rural views along with a high standard of comfort with inner spring beds, woollen under-lays, electric blankets and feather duvets/doonas to keep you warm in winter.
