This beautiful two bedroom cosy cottage with its open-plan indoor living space is only 300 metres from the popular walking and mountain biking trails of the Redwoods and Whakarewarewa Forest (which features the popular Treewalk tourist attraction). There is an abundance of bird life including native tui and korimako which add to the serenity of the cul-de-sac location.

The neighbourhood also has local bakeries, cafes and restaurants and there’s indoor entertainment (including ten pin bowling and arcade games) nearby too. Central Rotorua and all its amenities are accessible via a short car trip or you can use local buses as an alternative. The cottage’s location is also perfect for ready access to the Blue Lake, Green Lake and Lake Tarawera and the many events held in the area.

Moana Cottage will be able to sleep 6 people, with a double bed in each room and a sofa bed in the lounge, whilst during the day, guests will be able to enjoy the outdoor courtyard and garden area through two sets of large double doors.

Rotorua is known for its geysers, which attracts many tourists and is a must-see to all people who are new to the area! Immerse yourself in the local culture and learn about the Maori heritage that makes the town so special. Rotorua’s location makes it a good place from which you can explore both the inland and coastal parts of New Zealand with neighbouring Tauranga being only a short hour’s drive away.

Moana Cottage looks forward to welcoming you!

A lovely property that suited our family perfectly for a few days in Rotorua. Such a quiet street, could hear ruru at night. Fabulous location right near the Redwoods and our morning coffee just around the corner at Mistress of Cakes. Highly recommended.

Stayed December 2020

Lovely sunny house with a great space to relax both indoors and outdoors. Great water pressure in the shower. I wouldn't recommend sleeping on the sofa bed, but the beds in the bedrooms are fine.

Stayed December 2020

Great home. Yard was fully fenced so children and dogs could run free. Would love to come back again.

Stayed November 2020

Moana cottage is wonderful and beatiful place to stay. I wish we could keep it secret so it doesn't get too popular and we can stay again. Loved the proximity to the forest.i could easily hop on my bike in the am while the family had a snooze

Stayed November 2020

Excellent location. Just a short walk to the Redwoods and the local shops and eateries. The cottage was very cosy, clean and homely. It was very well equipped with everything you could need. The bed was very comfortable and the shower has great water pressure. It is a very quiet location in a cul de sac, no traffic noise, and lots of bird life including moreporks at night. We would stay there again.

Stayed November 2020

The house was great everything you could ever need was available including laundry powder! Our dog Mia enjoyed wondering the yard which was fantastic as the property was fully fenced so we didn’t have any worries about her escaping.

A perfect home from home, especially if you want to bring your dog/s. Great location near the Redwood walks but also close to everything else. Loved it, will definitely stay again.

Stayed January 2020

This is a great little house in an awesome location. Five minutes walk from the Redwoods and from the local shopping centre with cafes, fast-food, a chemist and a dairy... fantastic. Also just a ten minute drive out to Tikitapu / the Blue Lake. PERFECT for dog-owners who want to bring their dogs on holiday, with a fully fenced yard and a big deck. Beds were comfortable and the neighbourhood was very quiet, we could even hear the moreporks at night.

Stayed January 2020

Property was well set up. Being so close to town as well as the local attractions was fantastic. Would definitely recommend the property.

Stayed December 2019

This was a great property, thoughtfully decorated and excellent location to the Redwoods. The living space is generous, so it would be suitable for 2 x couples or a small family. The outdoor space felt nice and private too so you could sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine.
