Description

  • 5min to nearby Tokaanu for boat/kayak access to Lake Taupo, thermal activity and hotpools
  • Quick access to National Park including the Tongariro crossing & other spectacular mountain trails
  • 30min to Whakapapa ski field, avoid the queue, hire ski gear 2 min down the road.

There is so much to do in this area of the country! Stay in this warm and cosy 3 bedroom home with two lounge areas and a modern kitchen. In winter the log fire warms the whole house, with additional heating in each bedroom. There is a large deck for outdoor dining and plenty of off-street parking. This House gives you a log cabin feel with all natural timer inside. The section is fully fenced with a gate to let the kids run and play outside safely.

In mid to late summer there are 2 large plum trees laden with plums to enjoy, or just sit back and enjoy the views to the surrounding hills any time of the year. The house is 2mins to the Town Centre and on a main road out of Turangi for easy access to the lake and mountain. It's a 'hop, skip and a jump' away from the Whakaapa ski field (30mins drive), before you head up the mountain there is a ski hire shop two minutes down the road from home. Access to Lake Taupo is 5min in Tokaanu, which is where you can find the Tokaanu hot pools for a soak and take a short walk around the amazing thermal mud pools with the kids.

The Tongariro river flows past the town with scenic walks along the riverside, bikes are allowed. Nearby is the National Trout Centre where kids can feed the fish and on some days maybe even catch one. The nearby Tongariro National Park is a World Heritage Site with stunning volcanic and alpine hikes to enjoy including the famous Tongariro Crossing. Other walks include a the tranquil Lake Rotopounamu, the Waihaha trail in the Pureora forest and the Tama Lakes in the Tongaririo National Park

When the weather turns, Taupo is only a scenic 30 minutes drive with plenty of shops and adventure activities to enjoy such as: prawn fishing, thermal walks, shopping and dining.

Each bed has a duvet, with additional blankets supplied as well as pillows. Please Note: Must provide own linen, including pillow cases and towels.

  • This is a great little bach and we really enjoyed our stay

    This is a great little bach and we really enjoyed our stay. The weekend was cold and wet but there was plenty of dry firewood and heaters in every room so we stayed cosy. The kitchen was good and well equipped, beds were comfortable and living areas great. A few small maintenance issues like back door sticking and a leaking roof but nothing to make our stay unpleasant. We would not hesitate to stay at this great little bach again in the future
