Jonelle - New Year 2021

“Such a great place, exceeded our expectations. The Woolshed was cosy and had tons of character. Kids loved feeding the deer in the paddock next door and the hot tub was a highlight for us all. Location was excellent, across the road from Stoney Point reserve and boat ramp. Hosts were awesome. Recommend this place!”

Georgina - October 2020

Great hospitality and location. Private and Safe area.

Franco - October 2020

Everything was better than we expected. Beautiful, quiet and private spot to relax. Awesome wood fired hot tub. Cute views of the sheeps and deers around. Definitely recommend this place, specially for a couple.

Spencer - October 2020

What a gem of a place. Great for families Our two year old love watching and feeding the sheep and deer and splashing in the hot tub. Beach and playground are short walk. Lovely for adults when kids are asleep too - great to lie in bed and see sunrise over Tarawera. Angie’s grazing platter was out of this world and highly recommended particularly if you’re arriving later in the day!

Gareth - October 2020

Angela and Dave are wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome during our stay. The Woolshed is a real gem, tucked away a short walk from Lake Tarawera. Very clean, beautifully done up and with a superb wood-fired hot tub, we will definitely stay here again. We were given great recommendations on things to do with our two boys.

Louisa - September 2020

Cannot fault this beautiful property for a relaxing escape away from it all. Super friendly hosts with exceptionally responsive communication. So many thoughtful and unique touches throughout the stylish property. The hot tub was fantastic and really enjoyed using the kayak. Highly recommended!

Kirsty - September 2020

Gorgeous setting, gorgeous place and attentive hosts. Would highly recommend.

Emma - February 2020

The Woolshed was stunning, set up a private driveway we rarely saw people, only the resident sheep! The Cedar Hot Tub was incredible and the perfect spot to star gaze. The house itself had everything we needed and was located just across the road from the perfect lake swimming spot. Will definitely be back one day!


David - February 2020

A very relaxing and well appointed ‘property’ to stay for a few days. Nothing is lacking. From the moment we drove up the driveway past the grazing sheep, and went inside, we knew that this would be a great place to stay. Add in the fact that the great swimming of Lake Tarawera is essentially across the road, this is a great place to rest and access what the Rotorua area has to offer.

Janka - January 2020

We had a lovely stay with our friends at the barn. It's only a short walk to the beach and we loved hopping in the outside spa pool on stary nights. Thanks for lending us a fishing rod, too!

Helen - February 2019

This is fabulous stylish house with both comfort and character. Dave and Angie made us feel really welcome. It is a great place to explore the region from would highly recommend.

John - February 2019

A great space well located for those who like a little peace and tranquility.

Neil - January 2019

What an amazing and tranquil place adjacent to the lake and boat ramp. The quality of the decor and furniture is really good, all the necessary equipment required for a comfortable stay was provided. Plenty of space for the boat. The owners are exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We can't wait to return.

Jules - December 2018

The Woolshed is a very cool, unique place to stay. The owners have gone out of their way to make it an interesting set up with fabulous interior.
