  • The property was perfect and the location was ideal

    The property was perfect and the location was ideal. It was close to everything but the outlook from the house was rural and quiet.

    This bach is located beautiful, In the middle of nature, with wonderful views. It is very relaxing sitting on the balcony and see the valley. The house has everything you need. It is nice and tidy. Only 5- 10 minutes walk from the city centre and the Wanganui river. We come here now several years and we feel realy at home. Next year we will come back and we will stay here again for a month.
