  • Handy location

    Handy location. Well equipped. Had everhting we needed and the wood burner was very efficient at heating the house.

  • A great place to unwind and relax

    A great place to unwind and relax. Pity the hot water wasn't on, on arrival but the fire made up for it and was a very pleasant stay.

    The location was perfect for a family with children because it was near the Turangi town centre and, more importantly, a playground! New World, cafes and other eating places were just 2 blocks away. The house itself is very tidy and homely and the cooking implements allowed us to prepare home cooked meals very easily. We loved the paintings on the walls; apparently the owner painted them herself :) The neighbours were lovely too and entertained our 2 girls while we were cleaning up.

  • We loved it, clean and modern

    We loved it, clean and modern. Kids loved curling up with a book in the conservatory and a proper cot! Easy to find and quick to get to for ski fields. Stayed with a 3 month old, 6yr old and 8 yr old. Brilliant.
