The house has a huge parking area and a big garage/workshop with table tennis, and it is set in a quarter acre fully landscaped garden of trees and lawns to the lake edge, where there is a jetty, private sandy beach and big firepit/BBQ area. On the beach are a 12 foot sailing catamaran and a 13 foot dinghy with oars and outboard motor for your use. Life jackets and trout fishing gear are included- Lake Rotoiti is said to hold the biggest trophy trout in NZ (although my best so far was tiny at only 8lbs!)

We are ten minutes by taxi to Rotorua airport which is a one hour flight from Auckland airport, and also has flights to all other NZ destinations plus Sydney.
Bustling Rotorua city with it's cafes and many tourist attractions is 16 minutes by car, and is the premier destination in New Zealand for visitors- lakes, forests, volcano cones, geysers, hot mineral pools, Jet boating, bush walks and native Maori history- there is more to do and see than you can cope with! Ten minutes from our house you can raft over the highest raftable waterfall in the southern hemisphere (or just take a beautiful rain forest walk to watch!)
If you yearn for the sea, you can head for beautiful beaches at the coast half an hour away, or one hour away is NZ's biggest lake, Taupo, with it's view of the snow capped mountains in the background. And yes, the house can be used as a base for a day's skiing on the mountain 2 hours away in Winter (July to November).

You can use our New Zealand properties in Auckland and/or Rotorua anytime you like, but note that in many cases we need to seek a non simultaneous exchange as we only travel to Europe each year in late May and return in September.
2011 is now booked up, but In 2012 we are doing our South American trip and need a week in Buenos Aires starting about 21st September and a week in Rio starting about 30th August 2012
In 2013 we would like to spend time in Greece, Turkey, and France and in UK, in June/July/August/September
