Welcome to the Lazy Dog in Turangi!

The Lazy Dog is in a quiet area of central Turangi and is suitable for schools, fishermen, skiers, large families or any groups. We sit just 300 metres away from the Tongariro River for fishing and a short drive from the Tongariro National Park and the Whakapapa ski fields.

We are ready for anything you need with a fully equipped kitchen, unlimited gas hot water & power-showers, TV & hundreds of movies, woodburner for the colder nights, heaters in all rooms and free Wifi.

The property boasts a fully fenced garden area plus a patio at the back with seating. The gardens offer grapes, lemons and rhubarb (all seasonal) which you can use at your leisure. There is off-street parking for 3 to 4 vehicles and unlimited free on-street parking too.

Bedrooms consists of two private rooms and two dormitory style shared rooms.

Your booking is for the whole property, NOT sharing with other guests. If you are a very large group, please also check out Off The Track which can also cater to larger groups.

Cleaning Fee: Due to previous guests doing a very poor job of cleaning up and then making a big fuss when we charged them for it, we now charge a $50 cleaning fee as standard. Sorry but we will not waive this fee, it is part of the rental price now. This fee covers up to two and a half hours cleaning.

Please Note: Bed linen is NOT provided. You will need to bring your own pillows, sheets, duvets, blankets or sleeping bags. We do provide bathmats and tea-towels.

Special conditions: * A bond of $100 is payable when booking. This is refunded within 7 days of you leaving if there is no damage or cleaning for us to attend to * Pets ok with prior approval, not allowed in bedrooms * $50 cleaning fee covers up to 2 and a half hours of cleaning, any more will be deducted from bond. * Any losses or damages we have to take care of will incur a deduction from your bond.

  • This place worked so well for our 2 families and 2 couples

    This place worked so well for our 2 families and 2 couples. It was a little bit cold in the rooms, but we brought extra blankets and a couple of fan heaters to keep warm. The small heaters in the rooms are not very sufficient for the size of the rooms. Otherwise it had heaps of space, all the bits and pieces we needed, lots of movies on the TV, loved the fireplace, good location, fairly clean and tidy. It's good value for money and a lot of fun with a big group.
