“We stayed in Jennys and Malcolms beautiful homes in Papamoa Beach and Okere Falls where we encountered open and well maintained houses, lots of support for our wishes and needs and interesting communication partners. Both locations are very picturesque settled with heaps of natural beauty around and close proximities of shopping possibilities.”
Jenny And Malcolm's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We exchanged our homes and vehicles with Jenny and Malcolm in January this year. Our prior communication was excellent and no doubt resulted in the arrangements for the exchange going exactly to plan. We really felt at home in their lovely house which was situated in a wonderful location. We also enjoyed the company of their adorable cat. We were especially pleased at the condition they left our house in (better than we left it) and highly recommend Jenny and Malcolm and their home at Papamoa to any would be exchangers. Les and Rosie”
Where is it?
The community at Okere Falls has a mixture of permanent residents and holiday makers. The lake is very popular with holiday makers over summer and adventure tourists all year round as the Okere Falls (walking distance from the house) attract those wishing to try out the highest white water rafting experience in the Southern Hemisphere. Also within walking distance is the Okere Falls store where all the essentials can be purchased along with gourmet products and the best cappuccinos and muffins anywhere around.
The house is ideally suited to explore the central region of the North Island as it is only 20 minutes from Rotorua (New Zealand's thermal wonderland) and is under an hour to Tauranga and Mt Maunganui or Whakatane and Ohope (all with beautiful white sand beaches. Lake Taupo is also only an hour away and the spectacular Waitomo Caves are about a 90 minute drive.
There are hot pools across the lake (only accessible by boat) and there are local cruises that can be booked to take you there or out onto the lake. There are many other beautiful lakes nearby and White Island, an active volcano, is a must see for visitors.
