  • Great location and nice little bach

    Great location and nice little bach. Only complaint is that a lot of the fences around the backyard are not in a good state and there is a big gap next to the bottom gate so our dog was able to escape within about 5 minutes so while it was great that it is dog-friendly, it is only really suitable for dogs who don't like to explore.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Hi Jo, sorry about that. Our neighbours had a major clean up around the back of their property and moved the barriers that had been there previously. As soon as we discovered the gap, I arranged for a fencer last week to install about 18m of new fencing around the back of the sleepout; this is due to be completed over the coming week. Was that where the gap was?

    Had not been to Tarawera for years it was very pretty the bush look untouched almost prehistoric. The Cheeky Tui was lovely a peaceful setting would be lovely out side in the summer. The cottage had everthing we needed . It was lovely and cosy for the middle of winter . I would not hesitate to recommend staying here and would love to come back. Thank you Martin for everything. Cheers Kari and Phil.
