  • An incredible place - perfect for larger groups

    An incredible place - perfect for larger groups. There's so much room for everyone to hang around and the kitchen and dining table are all big enough to prepare and enjoy big meals together. Lovely rural setting - feels like you're far away from it all, but super close to National Park Village and the mountain. Warm too once the fireplace is going. Hope to return again soon!

  • Beautiful house with a large living area

    Beautiful house with a large living area. Very cosy with a wood fire and a well equipped open kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent too. It is a short drive to the snowfields of Whakapapa and Torua. We would definitely book this bach again!
