 great house, very warm, all had a great weekend staying there 

 Great accomodation with everything available. We had a fantastic time and loved the great showers especially after our climb to the Ruapehu crater lake. 

 This house was amazing and outshone our expectations. We loved having it as a home base and we wish we could have spent more time there! It was magic arriving to a warm house with underfloor heating and everyone was blown away with how it was stocked with everything that we could ever need. After we finished the Tongariro Crossing, the boys were thrilled to be able to watch the cricket live on the projector while us girls went to Taupo for the afternoon. This would be perfect for a family too. 

 the property is amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. definitely recommend to other people and will be back :D
