Rotorua: Little Sen’s Big Home


Through Shellah, I made new friends with a family during the Rotorua Night Market. They invited us over for lunch the next day.

Little did I know that my cute little friend here has a mansion for a home!


The glass house is overlooking the wide peaceful Rotorua Lake.DCIM100GOPROGOPR0487.

I walked in and instantly noticed how stylish yet comfortable the living room was.rotorua-home-4You don’t need decorations in a house like this. The whole place has the endless blue lake as its painting.DCIM100GOPROGOPR0467.


Even the kitchen has a dramatic view of the water meeting the sky. I guess if I see this everyday I would want to cook…rotorua-home-6I love how most houses in New Zealand have huge glass windows.sen-home

They have a pool, a jacuzzi and a sauna. rotorua-home-9

The bar and entertainment den opens to the terrace and viewing deck that spans end to end of the house.DCIM100GOPROGOPR0458.

I stopped counting how many bedrooms, bathrooms and walk-in closets they had when the number exceeded the fingers on my hand.rotorua-home-11 My favorite part of the house, apart from the bathroom that overlooked paradise, is the lift.DCIM100GOPROGOPR0476.

Yes, they have an elevator inside the house! Watch the video here…

Thank you for lunch, ate Maeh! I am inspired by your humility and caring heart.DCIM100GOPROGOPR0472.

So grateful to Hamdy, ate Maeh and baby Yaseen for welcoming us in your home.rotorua-home-13

It’s huge and stunning but what made it more inviting is the warmth and kindness you showed as a family. ❤
