Winter and Summer - Lots of room for everyone

 Very pleasant, spacious house. A true home away from home. Hosts were easy to deal with, and it suited us (a group doing the Tongariro Crossing) perfectly. 

Little Hill-sun, stunning views & 4 bedrooms

Lakeside Holiday Home with Superior Comfort

 This is a lovely property in a magical location. The kids loved kayaking out to the little island and roaming around the beach jetty area. It was fantastic to be able to leave our boat in the water. Very comfortable property although we did find the sleepout/garage a little basic and the water pump next door was fairly noisy. In all though we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
