Description

  • 1 minutes walk to the river
  • Surrounded by bush and reserves
  • Lovely deck and easy going feel

Only 50 metres from one of the famous trout fishing pools on the Tongariro River (the Hydro Pool), this bach is the 2nd to last in a cul de sac beside the river. Surrounded by bush it is secluded, quiet and you can fall asleep at night listening to the sound of the river. The large living/dining area opens onto a large sunny balcony which lends itself to inside /outside living. It also has a large lawn out the front . When winter hits, crank up the wood burner fire place - perfect after a days skiing on Mt Ruapehu only 45mins away! Walk over to the Major Jones swing bridge and take one of the many walks up or down the river or head to beautiful lake Taupo only 10mins away, or Taupo town 40mins.

Please note that this is a basic fishing cottage, not a flash, modern bach. You need to bring your own linen and towels, including tea towels.

Special conditions: Please note that we do not provide linen, towels or tea towels. This is a basic bach as is reflected in the price.

  • The property is a disgrace to say the least

    The property is a disgrace to say the least. We arrived on Christmas Eve with the intention of spending Christmas Day there. We chose not to stay because the place was unsuitable, particularly for an expectant mother and the parent-in-laws. The photos I took illustrate the state of the property without my need to go into detail. Kate told us it is basic for a cheap price yet we disagree completely. The property should not be on bookabach and I would strongly recommend not staying here.

    Owner/manager responds:

    This is extremely unfair. Your standards are misguided for renting a bach, especially of this price. We arrived the day after you were supposed to have left and it was ok. Yes it is an old house, yes it is basic, hence the description and price. You did not mention that I gave you a refund, despite not having to. You did not mention that i spent a long time arranging this refund. This is extremely unfair. You can tell that your standards are misguided our other feedback.

    Beautiful spot for a peaceful break, loved the real bach feel. Very close to the river and the walkways.

    Good points: It is quiet, is very spacious, has a large balcony and lawn, and is close to the river. Nice high ceilings in the lounge. Listen to the river as you fall asleep. Points for improvement: Wish we would have known to bring along our own towels and sheets. Was no toilet paper. The house could use a thorough clean-up. The cot seems to be falling apart. Good for a group of adults on a fishing trip. Not so good for a family with young children.

    Thank you for your comments. The property has had a thorough clean now and the cot had been fixed.
