At the end of the rambling driveway you will find this lovely sanctuary on Lake Rotorua water’s edge.

My family and I stayed at Parawai Lakehouse for 5 days and had the most amazing time. There was plenty of activities for family amusement. The house was very clean and spacious with the most breath taking views of Lake Rotorua. We will be back!
