Rotorua City Homestay

Address: 1406c Pukuatua Street, Rotorua. Phone: 021 0252 9145. Enquiries: enquiries@rotoruacityhomestay.com
Website and bookings: www.rotoruacityhomestay.com

Rotorua City Homestay is a new bed & breakfast style accommodation situated in the heart of Rotorua CBD with an easy walk to restaurants, shops, the lake front and the geothermal parks. We have two well-appointed rooms with dedicated bathrooms, comfortable beds, tea and coffee making facilities, free Wi-Fi, TV, and a mini-bar with drinks and snacks. A cooked or ‘kiwi-continental’ breakfast included in the tariff.
As our homestay is inner CBD of Rotorua we don’t have huge grounds like a naturist club, but we do have a private courtyard and deck area with seating and sun-loungers and a hot spa pool which is of course clothing optional, as are our indoor living areas.
Our homestay is promoted on the open market which means we are not solely catering for the naturist market (NZ is just too small for that), so when we get a booking from you, just remember to mention on our online booking form that you found us through the Free Beaches website, so we’ll know who we are accommodating. We will not let the second room to non-naturists if you make the booking first.
If you are new to Rotorua or visiting from overseas we advise a minimum of three nights to truly appreciate this amazing city and all the sights and activities it has to offer. Please check our website for further information, rates, and things to do in Rotorua. Mike and Pete look forward to your stay.
