The bach is a great place to base yourself for a Central Plateau holiday. Great fishing a few minutes away. Lots of river walks, Lake Taupo a couple of minutes walk and easy biking around local tracks and roads. A quiet area generally. The bach is on State Highway 1 so some traffic noise, but usually nothing too bad. 1 minute walk to shop and cafe. Fabulous hot pools at Tokaanu a 15 minute drive.Good fire. Pretty small overall, Ideal for 2 adults and kids. Queen bed good quality, 2 single bedrooms small and good for kids, fold down lounge bed a bit average. Whakapapa ski field an easy 60 minute drive away. Large fenced section, good for well behaved dogs, however a houdini dog could escape. A great place to chill out and unwind.All simple and functional, but if you're wanting a modern palace this is not the place! Turangi 10 minutes and Taupo 25 minutes drive. Easy clean on leaving.

Special conditions: Dogs allowed with prior approval. Smoking outside only, with no butts left around please.

  • A genuine kiwi bach

    A genuine kiwi bach. Clean comfortable and homely. Doesnt pretend to be anything other than that. Fab location for tramping/fishing/hunting. The only downside is horrendous traffic noise wich is to be expected being so close to the main rd. Reminded me of being at my nan's down south.
