  • 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.

Special conditions: Please DO NOT use the kayaks. Cleaning can be arranged for $60. Please give us some notice. Have a great time and book the Lodge again.
