  • Some spectacular views of the NZ countryside near this property

    Some spectacular views of the NZ countryside near this property. Also great access to fishing if you are prepared to travel 30-60 minutes. Great spot to relax and chill. Kid friendly house which is fairly archaic (retro some would say) but in good condition and well equipped for a drop in or longer stay. The house seems to be infrequently booked and could use a good airing prior to visits.

    Peaceful remote location, great base to explore Tararua District from. Waterfalls, beaches and bush reserves all within driving distance. Nice to come home to wood fire, comfortable bed and fully equipped kitchen with all the little extras that make the difference. Fresh flowers a nice touch.

    Remote location was very cool, in a part of the country I'd never visited before. The house is a solid older style house, generously sized bedrooms. We were only staying the one night so had no opportunity to look at the river and surrounds, but I would happily stay here again to explore a bit further.
