About our home

Our home is the perfect base for a memorable winter holiday: a 6yr old cottage with 39sq m covered deck. It is designed for maximum comfort and minimum work and is clean and hygienic. The two bedrooms have super comfy queen sized beds. The main open plan living/dining/kitchen are includes a flexible office/single bedroom. There is a pretty water feature and garden in front of the sheltered, sunny deck off the lounge. You can BBQ, sit and watch the goldfish and listen to the birds. We find a sunny day up to 16C usually follows a frost. The deck is home to our friendly cat. He and the goldfish need a bit of food and a kind word now and again.
The district abounds with therapeutic hot waters and there are 10 picturesque lakes within 30 mins. of our home, also the renowned Redwood Forest. All great for trout fishing, walks, tramps and mountain biking.
For Rotorua attractions check out www.rotorua.nz.com/activities.aspx. Just too many to mention.


More about us

  1. Terry and I, Daphne, are an active semi-retired couple with a spirit of adventure. We love our home, garden, entertaining, theatre, reading etc.

    We have visited many of the Pacific Islands. We enjoy the people, the cultures and most of all snorkeling, kayaking and fishing. We would like to go for a longer trip with time to travel around and get to know the locals. An amicable car exchange would be welcome. If you think our place might be for you, or if like us you're just new to home exchanging- please mail us for a chat.

Where is it?


A charming little lakeside community, just 3 mins by car from Rotorua International Airport. Holdens Bay has a holiday feel, great neighbours, a good bus service, yet only 8 mins from the city centre. Within a 3/4hr radius you can go skiing Whakapapa, shop and take in a show in Auckland, visit world class vineyards or just enjoy clean green New Zealand. Our cafe culture and excellent restaurants are an affordable delight. Food-to-go is varied and close by. We are so central you will be spoilt for choice!
