The Blake Bach, Turangi

 Nice and cosy Bach, with brain new carpet, electric blankets and a fire place. 

Kowhai Cottage, Turangi

 Close to the Tongariro crossing 

Cottage in quite park-like surroundings

 Excellent accommodation great value 

Honey Pot Pool Holiday Home Turangi

 We really enjoyed staying at the ‘Honey Pot Pool’ holiday home. Quiet residential street, only 20 minutes’ drive to the Tongariro crossing track. Nice to come home to a cosy comfortable house after a hard day’s walking! Spotlessly clean and big comfy beds. Modern kitchen with basic condiments provided. We loved the big TV and the heat pump was great! Just one small thing – provided with less than half a roll of toilet roll, we arrived late so couldn’t buy any more until the next day. Thanks!
