  • Brilliant location - a hidden gem

    Brilliant location - a hidden gem. Very clean homely place. Great being so close to the lovely cafe a couple of doors away. A little reminder somewhere to turn the hot water on in the ensuite would be great as my husband and I had a cold shower on our first morning! Will certainly return to this property and would highly recommend to others. Thanks heaps.

  • This is a fabulous property in Turangi

    This is a fabulous property in Turangi. In a hidden gem of an area, that I didn't really know existed. Just a few minutes walk to the river, fabulous dog park and a wonderful cafe just 2 doors down the road. A very comfortable home with everything required for a wonderful stay. They also allowed us to bring our dog, which was perfect also. We would love to come back.

  • Excellent location for the activities we had planned, centrally located and comfortable

    Excellent location for the activities we had planned, centrally located and comfortable. The only issue, and not a big one, is the wood stove. It's been a while since I've had to build a fire each morning. Other wise, great place.
