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.

  • We love the location of this property as their are trout fisherman...

    We love the location of this property as their are trout fisherman in our familyBeing so close to the river is fabulous for us. Fire warms house well. House really requires repairs.Front (main entrance) sliding door nearly impossible to open from both inside or outside.Hot water tap in bathroom not working. Kitchen hot water USELESS hardly enough hot water to fill one sink have to constantly boil jug. Downstairs bed rooms louvers let cold air in. Place needs general tidyup, new curtains.
