Down the end of a long drive right next to the amazing Lake Rotorua hides a beautiful place called the Parawai Lakehouse Sanctuary. Our stay was awesome and the beds and "added on" linen was perfect and clean. We went away for a girls trips and the outside areas were perfect places to catch up. I would highly recommend this place to friends

Stayed August 2019

We had a great time staying at this property, it was perfect, so peaceful and our kids loved the games room and kayaks. We would definitely look to stay here again if we were coming back to Rotorua. Its worth the money so much better than staying in a hotel/motel/holiday park. We definitely miss waking up to that beautiful lake each morning!

Amazing house, beautiful views loved by all of our group which ranged in age from 46 to 3 years old. Kayaks are a bonus.

Stayed January 2019

Was really a sanctuary. Very private, and wonderful being so close to the lakefront. very safe for the children as the lake is very shallow for a long way out. We enjoyed the kayaks. A wonderful stay for our extended family and heaps of room. Thank you for sharing your special place. The children loved the wildlife.

Stayed November 2018

This place was as lovely as it appeared in the photos and fully worth the price. well equipped and maintained in absolutely beautiful natural surroundings, completely hassle-free check in and check out procedures, made for an absolutely wonderful holiday just wish we could have stayed longer. My only caution is that only two of the bedrooms are suitable for older people

Lesley

The property was perfect for our stay, it provided plenty of outdoor shelter, plenty of beds, lots of fun activities and the setting was idyllic. We all thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful spacious home and would be keen to do it again soon. Thanks so much.
