  • We were a group of 6 ladies on our annual long weekend...

    We were a group of 6 ladies on our annual long weekend which involves outdoor activities. The space accommodated us all perfectly and we were very appreciative of the spa pool, plenty of towels and a well appointed kitchen. The location is handy to the Tongariro Crossing, The Chateau for high tea and on the doorstep of the Old Coach road cycle trail. A slotted spoon for our poached eggs would have made it perfect!

  • Location was easy to find with good directions given by Jon

    Location was easy to find with good directions given by Jon. This house was newly decorated and very spacious for up to 8 people. The 2 bathrooms were great but an additional mirror or 2 in the bedrooms would have been a bonus (all getting glammed up for a wedding at the same time!). Beds were super-comfy with quality linen.Just sorry we didn't get a chance to use the spa. Would recommend to anyone wanting to ski Ruapehu (well positioned near both parks) also excellent access to Old Coach rd.

  • Absolutely loved this bach - it had everything we needed

    Absolutely loved this bach - it had everything we needed. what a wonderful place to relax. the indoor spa with a built in radio was the cherry on top for us! The house was immaculate. Very spacious rooms with lovely bathrooms. We even had a cute pig as a neighbor! The owners were very easy to deal with. Would definitely be back - The only thing I would recommend is an upgrade for the first aid kit as some things were expired. Other than that, this is one of the best places I have stayed at!
