  • Although dated the bach was ok and served our purpose well, however...

    Although dated the bach was ok and served our purpose well, however the cleaning was not. The sofa was full of mould. Roaches were found in second bedroom plus the lack of ventilation also in the second bedroom helped a strong condensation smell.

  • We had a lovely stay in this batch

    We had a lovely stay in this batch. Perfect for our group and central to the Waikato trails. Great shower. Good kitchen to work in for a small place. We enjoyed having breakfast on the spacious deck overlooking the lake. Good idea having the covered area too to put our outdoor gear between adventures. Compact but workable.

  • Great Bach

    Great Bach. Fits 2 young families easily. Close to all amenities. BBQ hose for LPG cylinder needs replacing due to wear. Otherwise fan time had there.
