  • Great central location close to town and river

    Great central location close to town and river. Homely feel and loved the spa and outdoor fire. Would recommend and will be back.

  • Property was clean, tidy, warm and had everything we needed

    Property was clean, tidy, warm and had everything we needed. Was only a few minutes walk to the local shops, local bar & mini golf. We used it as a base of operations for our Tongariro crossing trip and it was excellent for this.

  • We spent 9 days during winter

    We spent 9 days during winter. While me and 2 kids were skiing rest of my family was enjoying surroundings. The house t has a perfect location near the river - walking distance to Turangi Center; 45min drive to Phakapapa and Taupo. House is comfortable. Highly recommended

  • Great property and location

    Great property and location. Good for numbers of people with 3 bathrooms and toilets etc. Although we were there in winter, the outdoor area is also great for BBQ's and kids etc. The only small gripes are that it was difficult to fund at night when we arrived and we didn't discover that we needed to turn the hot water on ourselves (3 cylinders) til quite a while after we arrived - the info was in the book but a note on the table or kitchen bench would have ensured we saw it right away.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for the feedback Brent. Sorry about the hot water being turned off. Kay our house keeper normally switches it on for guests but the previous guests to you were friends and they cleaned the house themselves and turned the water off!
