Nice cosy bach with close proximity to Whakapapa ski filed, Lake Taupo, Tongariro River and lots of stunning hiking and biking tracks. Open plan lounge, dining and kitchen. A heat pump keeps the house cosy and warm in the winter, along with an oil fin heater, and if it gets really cold there are two portable gas heaters just waiting in the garage to keep you warm. The kitchen is fully equipped (will need to supply own dishcloth and tea towels) and recently refurbished. There is a washing machine and dryer.

Light weight duvets and pillows are provided in each of the three bedrooms (Note: you will need to provide your own sheets and pillowcases). Bring extra blankets and/or pillows at your own discretion). There are no electric blankets on the beds, although hot water bottles are provided. Enjoy the outside furniture on the large fully fenced section.

Suitable for couples or groups seeking good affordable accommodation in this stunning region.

Walking distance to Turangi shopping centre and dining out.

Tokaanu Hot Pools and geothermal area is a 5 mins drive. Boat launching ramp for the lake is 6 mins drive. Taupo 40 mins. Whakapapa ski field 40mins drive. 5 mins from the famous Tongariro River for world famous trout fishing. 5 mins to 18 hole golf course. An ideal base if you are going to walk the Tongariro Crossing, tramping, mountain biking (42nd Traverse), skiing, snowboarding, white water rafting or the many other activities the area provides.

    Great little property, close to Tongariro Crossing, which is why we stayed. Plenty of space for the 5 of us (2 couples, 1 single).

    Kowhai Cottage was conveniently located in Turangi, big garden, tidy place, very nice kitchen with modern appliances. We stayed only 1 night, but would recommend it for a family holiday.
