  • 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 at the end of 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 sunny deck which lends itself to inside /outside living. It also has a large lawn out the front. In winter, crank up the woodburner fire place - perfect after a day's skiing on Mt Ruapehu only 45 mins away! Walk over to the Major Jones swing bridge and follow easy tracks alongside the river or head to beautiful lake Taupo only 10mins away, the hot pools at nearby Tokaanu, or Taupo town 40mins.

Please note that this is a basic fishing cottage, not a flash, modern bach. Shabby chic is the vibe. 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.

    Great place to stay - had what we needed to base ourselves for the activities we were doing (catching up with loved ones, visiting the outer areas). Nice not to have a TV - enabled us to concentrate on family. Would totally recommend.
