    “OK, but could be better.”

    The property is let down in a few areas. It felt like our stay was right on the back of another group, and the cleaners didn't do a proper job. There were a lot of cobwebs in the rooms, dirty linen in the closet of one bedroom and a dirty pillow case in the bathtub. There was no dishwashing liquid and only two toilet rolls to be found. The recycling bin was full and the rubbish not far from it. The property would also benefit from a bit of TLC. The pots and pans were below standard - badly ...

    The property is let down in a few areas. It felt like our stay was right on the back of another group, and the cleaners didn't do a proper job. There were a lot of cobwebs in the rooms, dirty linen in the closet of one bedroom and a dirty pillow case in the bathtub. There was no dishwashing liquid and only two toilet rolls to be found. The recycling bin was full and the rubbish not far from it. The property would also benefit from a bit of TLC. The pots and pans were below standard - badly scratched nonstick pans, or the pans that weren't nonstick being clearly misused and burnt to the point where you will never get them clean. Only one half of the BBQ would light, it didn't even seem that gas was flowing on the grill side. Not that it made any difference - it was so filthy that I wouldn't have dreamed of cooking on it. The deck was rotten in places and the outdoor furniture needs a clean, if not replacing. It is also worth noting that water quality in the lake should be checked if you think you might enjoy a swim in the lake. No one's fault, but our visit was timed with toxic algal blooms in the lake.

The property

Mokoia Sunrise is an absolute lakefront three-bedroom holiday home with Wi-Fi on the shores of Lake Rotorua. Private and peaceful with stunning views across the lake, this is an idyllic retreat. Watch the sunrise across Mokoia Island while sipping tea in bed or better still, launch the kayaks from the reserve in front of the house and paddle along the tranquil waters of the Waiteti Stream. The house is warm and comfortable with great spaces for all the family to enjoy. Mokoia Sunrise is in the ideal location for your next family holiday, with safe swimming for the little ones in the lake, swimming holes to explore along the stream and a beautiful garden to simply kick back in and relax. Between December and April the mouth of the stream offers some of the best trout fishing in the region, and you're in a million-dollar location to take advantage of this - be sure to pack the gear! Mokoia Sunrise is conveniently close to the quaint village of Ngongotoha, and just a 15-minute drive to Rotorua town. The Adventure Capital of the North Island, kick your holiday into overdrive with trips to the Zorb, Zipline, Rainbow Springs or Redwoods Forest. Once discovered, you'll never want to leave this little slice of paradise at Mokoia Sunrise.
