Zodiac holiday home provides a great set up for a large family or group, seeking accommodation in the Rotorua area. This quality five bedroom home is well equipped for stays, at any time of the year.
Zodiac Lakeside Retreat is a paradise located only a short stroll from the lake front and sits alongside a beautiful stream. It is an ideal getaway spot for a relaxing few days or as a base for adventuring in the Rotorua area. Zodiac is located in a safe, quiet, no exit street.
This home was designed with holidaying in mind. Guests will enjoy the inside-outside flow with dining/lounge and kitchen areas adjoining a huge deck. The house lends itself to entertaining with plenty of seating inside and out.
The house backs on to a stream that brings clear waters down from Mt Ngongotaha. Guests are welcome to swim in the safe river. It flows into the lake where you can also enjoy a swim or jump off our jetty.
Zodiac's complete set of facilities and amenities means that there is very little you'll need to bring with you. All the little touches of home are already here. Our kitchen is ready to go for those with a desire to cook up a storm and provide an awesome meal.
The house has full laundry equipment to keep everyone looking spick-and-span. Both showers have endless hot water and great water pressure.

The house is very spacious, clean and well equipped. The hosts are very kind and easy to communicate. 10 of us really enjoyed our stay and will definitely rebook this place if we are back in Rotorua.
