  • Property was clean, well maintained, and warm & dry

    Property was clean, well maintained, and warm & dry. The rain made the driveway a bit difficult at times - I would have liked to have gravel rather than just grass and dirt - but otherwise, no complaints.

  • Outstanding quiet location in lovely village

    Outstanding quiet location in lovely village. Easy access for Tongariro crossing, about 30 minutes from finish carpark (i.e. start of walk if you use the transfer buses to get you to the start car park). Outstanding property. Fantastic accommodation with stunning views from deck/hot tub over Lake Taupo. Spotlessly clean. Great easy use hot tub. Lovely shower area, but only one shower and one toilet for a property that sleeps six is tight. Good supermarket shopping about 15 minutes away.

  • Wonderful batch with fantastic lake views

    Wonderful batch with fantastic lake views. Recently renovated but still with a lovely 'batchy' feel, well appointed with good wine glasses (significant given that we gambled on not taking our own!) and plenty of nice ornaments, accessories etc. Free wifi and sky a bounus on those not so good weather days with the kids! Loved it and want to go back; would be great in the winter too.

  • Brilliant location

    Brilliant location. The bach had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Well-equiped kitchen, including sharp knives which we appreciate. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable, and easy to warm up on the cold days. Mesmerising view!
