Charming character kiwi bach beside Cherry Tree Reserve - 1/2 minute walk to the Tongariro River - excellent fishing, fabulous walks, mountain bike tracks - quiet laid-back holidaying, or full-on activities if you prefer:
white water rafting, 18 hole golf course, horse trekking, hot pools and fascinating Trout Hatchery all nearby.
Mountain Views, 1/2 hour to ski field, 1/2 hour to Taupo. 20 minutes to start of Tongariro Crossing - one of the top 5 one-day treks in the world! 5 minute drive to Tokaanu boat ramp on Lake Taupo.
Great local cafes, rock climbing wall, swimming pool complex, mini golf, comprehensive supermarket all in walking distance.
Bach has grunty woodburner providing unlimited hot water; electric blankets on some beds, duvets & pillows supplied, but you will need your own sheets, pillowcases and towels.
Several board games for the children. The pantry is full of all the staple items - Tea, Coffee, Milo, flour, sugar etc. You are welcome to use anything you find. We only ask that if you are the lucky one who finishes something in the pantry, please replace it. Washing powder and dishwasher powder, detergent etc are all there.
We have some very 'rustic' ancient bicycles in the shed you can use. Ample parking for boats and cars. This is a cosy, quirky family bach - not a sterile 'hotel style' accommodation.

  •  This place is great. Really good size bedrooms and such a bonus being able to bring our dog. It is so close to the river we were able to walk from the house along the river trails every day. Will definitely stay again if back down that way.
