A beautiful little bach ideal for honeymooners or couples looking for that quiet weekend away. Close to the lake and boat ramp.

Hot pools and gourmet restaurants near by and the Omori store 2 minutes away.

Perfect for ski season with Mount Ruapehu less than an hour away.

Lots of trout fishing opportunities with the world famous Kuratau trout stream just up the road.

While there is a wall heater and a oil heater it can be cold in winter so please bring a small fan heater if you feel the cold. The bach is a studio so suits couples or small families only. As such the hot water heater is not huge so long showers are not possible.

There is an option to have a cleaner come in after your stay. If you do not want this service please deselect it when you book to ensure it does not show up on your invoice.

Please enjoy and look after this much loved family bach.

  • You get what you pay for

    You get what you pay for. I didn't have any instructions but found the place with a bit of luck. The neighbours filled in the rest. Tiny place, cosy and clean enough, but basic. Nice location but we didn't stay long. I wouldn't stay there again but recommend it for budget, down to earth travellers.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Again I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. There are instructions in the first email I sent you and also in the information folder inside the Bach.

  • It's a little single room unit with a small bathroom

    It's a little single room unit with a small bathroom. Very good value for money and absolutely stunning location, right next to the lake. It was tidy and clean. I would recommend bringing your own bedding if you can and Mary suggested bringing a small heater which I will fully endorse, it can be a little nippy at night (I stayed tail end of March). It was exactly what I needed and if you're looking for a small little place with a great location - this is it!

    You get what you pay for. This place needs an update. Needs new blankets, pillows etc.. The location is good.
