A cool experience, not recommended for 4x people as the space is a bit small when sleeping, the crockery was only set for 3 people. The grey water overflow was not well instructed as we had a bit of a flood, which we didn't expect. more instruction would've helped. Everything else was great, the experience of staying in a house truck was fantastic! well recommended and a wonderful stay for 2 people. The Local pool was awesome for the kids. Thanks for a really good time in the Wairere.
Fantastic place - and a great surprise for my husband, who thought I was lost! We were there on a wet and windy night, but we were cosy inside. It was great having a shower in the morning - warm in the outdoors shower looking out at the cold rainy world! We wished we could have stayed much longer.
