Our house is only 5 minutes from central Rotorua. The bus stop is 2 minutes walk from us. We have a local suburban shopping centre 2 minutes walk away which has a small supermarket, liquorland, fish & chip shop, Chinese takeaway and Indian takeaway. We live in a very quiet and safe suburb. The house is very sunny and has an awesome view of the lake. There is a good BBQ on the deck and the lawn runs in to the lake.
