  • Warm, roomy, comfortable house. Great for families at an affordable price. Lovely big deck outside.

There is a wood burner with a fire guard in the lounge & plenty of firewood. A heat exchange unit pumps warm air from the lounge into the bedrooms. Once the fire is going, the house stays nice and warm. A portable gas heater is also available.

All beds have duvets, pillows & blankets. You need to bring your own linen and towels. The kitchen is well equipped and has a brand new fridge. There's a double garage for all your sports gear and the car. The new deck provides plenty of outdoor living space.

At the end of our short street & through Cherry Tree Reserve, you’ll find the mighty Tongariro River–a trout fisherman’s dream. There are walking and mountain biking tracks along both sides of the river. Guiding, rod hire, kayak/bike hire & rafting are available in town.

Around the corner is a big park with a playground, petaque pit & plenty of room to throw the footy. Walk into town to the supermarket, cafes, pub, mini golf, indoor rock climbing, pool and 2 small galleries. Turangi swimming pool is brand new & has 4 pools–Toddlers, Children, Lap and….BOMBING.

Turangi is only 5 minutes drive to the southern end of Lake Taupo. The boat ramps & picnic spots are great. Hot pools are a 5 minute drive away in Tokaanu & there is also a small ‘thermal’ walk there. The Turangi Trout Hatchery is 5 minutes drive south of Turangi. It’s interesting and kids love it. Phone for the children’s fish out days. A 40 minute drive & you’re at the Whakapapa ski field.

Turangi is mountain biking central. There are too many to list but 42nd Traverse, Tree Trunk Gorge, W2K & Craters of the Moon are a start. There are fantastic bush walks all around the area including the famous Tongariro Crossing. Lake Rotopounamu (Green stone lake) is a personal favourite.

Lastly, why not play golf on the scenic Turangi golf course.

Come and stay. You will have an awesome holiday.

 Location perfect for river access 

 Quiet peaceful location. Very private. Nice and spacious. Fireplace was great. Good to have lock up garage and gates for security. 

 Great house, well set up and perfect for kids. Great hosts too, have recommended the house to our friends. Would definitely stay here again. 

 The bach was perfect for a weekend away - clean, tidy, cosy and well equipped. Really close to Turangi centre and to the river. The owner gave us exceptional hospitality and we would highly recommend. 

 Great place to stay - thank you.
