Streamside Cottage, Waiwhero Street, Rotorua City (Bachcare)

Streamside Cottage, Waiwhero Street, Rotorua City (Bachcare)

Welcome to Streamside Cottage.

This 1960’s native timber home gets its name from the Maori word for ‘Confluence of Two Streams’ – The Mangakakahi and the Utuhina Streams.

Wander along the Mangakakahi Stream below the property – you can follow it a few yards to the confluence with the Utuhina Stream, which offers angling opportunities under the willows and better chances along its banks to capture a good rainbow or an elusive brown trout.

The house is central to Rotorua and handy to biking trails, lakes, hot pools and the CBD.

Rest easy – the donging of bamboo across the stream and the sound of the gurgling waters will, we hope, make for a delightful experience in the middle of a busy and vibrant city.

Wild native birdlife abounds, and you will see Tui, Bellbirds and Waxeyes in the garden and hear Morepork at night. Some fruit on the bird tray will encourage them to come closer.

The vegetable and herb garden is yours to enjoy. Please help yourselves and enjoy this urban sanctuary.
