For the kids...

Children just love to visit the ducks and maybe ducklings, collect the hens' eggs or say hello to our lop-eared rabbits and Teddy, the friendly cat.  We also have black and white lambs that you can bottle-feed.  We have lots of space that the kids are welcome to run around or play soccer on.  Onsite you'll find a slide, swing-set, uni-cycle, weights and a life-size soccer goal. We also have a large suitcase with dressing-up clothes, a table soccer game and table tennis available.  We also have books, toys, games or DVDs.

Our great location...

Outdoors on the deck you can cook on the BBQ then dine at the outdoor table and chairs, before relaxing in the new hot-tub while absorbing the tranquillity and night sky.


Rotorua is just a 15 minute drive and we are very central to many attractions.  You can visit nearby cities while based here and return to the tranquility of Blossom Cottage at the end of the day. Be adventurous, visit our lakes, play golf or go fishing. Mitai Maori Village, Skyline, The Luge, Kiwi Encounter and Hamurana Springs are only 5 minutes away. The Farmhouse Horse Riding is next door.

"Loved our stay with our cheerful hosts, René and Marianne, and enjoyed the hot tub, the animals, delicious breakfast with fresh eggs. The sights, Mitai, Skyline, Canopy Tours and Rainbow Springs with Kiwi Encounter, were so close by and only a short drive from the cottage. Rene's massages were superb, and way cheaper than any in Rotorua city. Hope to come back again!"  Katherine and Samuel Greerson | Canada

Our favourite destinations…

Auckland destination2


New Zealand’s economic heart and biggest city is also an exciting family visitor destination, situated on a sunny harbour with city beaches just minutes away from the CBD. Orientate yourself by heading down to Viaduct Harbour, wandering the waterfront, checking out the super yachts or enjoying the waterfront restaurants. Nearby is the must-visit Sky Tower along with excellent and kid-friendly museums and tons of exciting activities!


Wellington is New Zealand’s capital. Here you will find New Zealand's parliament buildings, including the 'Executive Wing', more well-known as 'The Beehive' due to its distinctive shape. Another icon to look out for is the Wellington Tram, which was the main means of public transport between 1878 and 1964.


With a population of around 400,000 Christchurch, in Canterbury, is the South Island ’s largest city, yet much of it has the feel of a small town. Perhaps that’s why it’s known as the Garden City but with the expansive Hagley Park, Botanic Gardens, Port Hills, River Avon and numerous beaches the city certainly has an open, relaxed feel that’s hard to beat.


With its well-deserved reputation as New Zealand’s activity adventure capital you’ll never run out of activities and things to do in Queenstown, but you may run out of time! With breathtaking scenery, activities and festivals, cafes and restaurants, skiing and snowboarding, shopping and wineries, this lakeside alpine resort rates as one of the world’s top vacation destinations for all ages and seasons.


Rotorua sits on the shore of Lake Rotorua, one of sixteen lakes in the area formed by hundreds of thousands of years of eruptions from the Taupo Volcanic Zone. The area is renowned for its geothermal activity and top of any activity list is to see the bubbling mud pools that are around the region for yourself. The Waimangu Volcanic Valley offers a first hand insight into the devastation caused by the 1886 eruption of Mount Tarawera and is a great place to discover steaming volcanic craters and bubbling, spitting  pools of mud!

Nelson and Golden Bay

The Nelson and Golden Bay regions, at the top of the South Island, boast enviable sunshine hours, glorious sandy beaches, safe swimming spots, lots of wildlife to look out for, and Abel Tasman National Park - an absolute must to explore, on foot, by kayak, your own craft or watertaxi.  Nelson is home to a vibrant arts and crafts community with a fabulous Saturday market, and is close to award-winning wineries and family-friendly bike tracks to take you around the coast.

Hawkes Bay

Napier was rebuilt after the 1931 earthquake and is now known as NZ's Art Deco City.  The Art Deco influence has created a unique city – nowhere else can you see such a varied concentration of art deco style. With over 2,200 sunshine hours a year, Napier is a year-round holiday destination with countless activities to entertain the kids – there's days of entertainment on Marine Parade alone, plus numerous other family-friendly trips and activities.  Add to that the beaches, walks and flat cycle paths, outdoor cafes and entertainment, and you have a perfect holiday destination!


Beautiful, unspoiled beaches, fishing, historic gum fields, kauri forests – the Far North has it all. With subtropical temperatures, it's often known as ‘the Winterless north', with warm, humid summers and mild winters.
Gateway to the Bay of Islands, Paihia is a pretty, lively beachside town and a perfect base for your family holiday. It’s your start point for Bay of Island adventures including day cruises, sailing, kayaking, swimming with dolphins and reef or wreck diving.
