    This is a most comfortable and well equipped holiday home. It not 5 stars as in 5 star hotel but it is large and comfortable and clean and every thing is there, It is 5 stars for what we want -and we were allowed to bring our little dog. And we are fussy. The location is fantastic, a few minutes walk from the Tongariro River and it is quiet and peaceful. We really appreciated the chance to stay there.

    Property was private, massive house, beautiful kowhai trees with sooo many tuis singing. So nice and relaxing, close to everything. Really decent place for a great price in my opinion.

    Spacious, neat and tidy family/group place. It is close to Tongariro and Whakapapa ski field so makes it perfect place for accomodation.
