They are extremely knowledgable on the area and we really enjoyed our social chats ..not to mention the glass of wine. The location is wonderful being on the edge of the...

We stayed at B&B @ the Redwoods while we were in Rotorua as part of our honeymoon. Vivien was great and very enthused about her guests, her B&B, her family, and her community. Vivien gave us great breakfasts and great advise on what to do in the area. Perfectly located close to the redwoods, biking trails, geo-thermal spas, downtown Rotorua,...

This was the best B&B we stayed in our NZ trip. Vivien was the most friendly and helpful host we had on our NZ trip. Not saying our other B&B's were not good but this one was better then our expectations. We had nice and interesting conversations with Vivien not only about Rotorura and NZ but also about other topics....
