The Superintendent's House on Rotoroa Island was the former home of the island's most senior Salvation Army staff member, the Superintendent. Consequently it occupies a lovely spot with beautiful views across the Gulf and over to Coromandel. It's an easy five minute walk from the wharf where you disembark.
Bathroom facilities in The Superintendent's House are shared (there are no ensuite rooms). Pillows (but not pillowcases) are provided; all other linen is BYO (incl. sleeping bags, sheets, duvets and towels).
