There is easy access to the mountains from the property, and it makes a great base for walking the Maude Track and further afield into the beautiful Pouakai Ranges.

  • Fantastic spot on the foothills of Mt Taranaki

    Fantastic spot on the foothills of Mt Taranaki. We look forward to coming back another time to take advantage of the outside tubs and the woodfire!

  • What an amazing spot we had a mini vacay an hour from...

    What an amazing spot we had a mini vacay an hour from where we live and this was the perfect home away from home. The baths were amazing under a full moon sky full of stars and the spot and grounds beautiful. Thank you again for sharing it with us??

  • Amazing cottage in a perfect setting

    Amazing cottage in a perfect setting. We honestly couldn't have wished for anything more. Mike and Esther are fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Would happily return.

  • One of the best bachs we've stayed in

    One of the best bachs we've stayed in. Cosy, nicely put together and with spectacular views of the mountain - we couldn't have liked this cabin more. Our evening ritual became fire baths and then keeping warm with a fire inside, while we sunbathed and explored the beautiful Egmont national park during the day. Everything is through of in this little cabin and we could have happily stayed all week!

  • The bach was clean and tidy with everything you could need provided

    The bach was clean and tidy with everything you could need provided. The views of the mountain were spectacular. The whole family enjoyed the star baths. Having breakfast on the deck with the Tui's in the flax was the perfect way to start the day. A lovely, peacful and relaxing holiday get away but just close enough to town.
