The house has a large and well-equipped kitchen with a table & seating for four. There are store cupboard essentials such as tea and coffee available for you to use, but if you use the last of something please replace it. Alternatively, you are welcome to provide your own.

The master bed has an electric blanket; duvets (NZ queen) and pillows are provided, and additional blankets are available.

Please note that we do not supply any linen or towels and you will need to provide your own bed linen and towels (including tea-towels).

In order to maintain a consistent and high standard of cleanliness, we have added a mandatory cleaning charge - $55/stay.

The house is warm and cosy as it is fully insulated, there is plenty of firewood for the wood burner and chip heater and also a couple of oil heaters for those really chilly nights in winter.

The fully fenced section offers plenty of room for parking, playing swing ball or lazing in the hammocks. There is also a smoker should you happen to catch your own dinner.

There are a television and video player available, however, please note that the TV is an old analogue one and no longer receives signal. There are plenty of videos to choose from.

Detailed guest information will be provided to each guest along with confirmation of their booking, which we ask you to read before your trip.

In the unlikely event of simultaneous requests, preference will be given to those who have stayed with us previously and/or have a history of positive feedback.

  • Thank you for a great long weekend

    Thank you for a great long weekend. The bach was very securely fenced which meant our pups had a great time exploring the garden and we were able to relax.

  • Perfect for what we needed

    Perfect for what we needed. Great base & close to everything in the Taupo/Turangi/Tongariro area. Fire in the lounge is crazy hot! Definitely recommend the chippy in the kitchen for heating the hot water too.

    A small basic house that had all the essentials. It was very good for two fly fishermen and a handy location.
