  • The hut and grounds were prefect and as described

    The hut and grounds were prefect and as described. Quiet, children safe, clean and tidy. The little extra items in the pantry were enjoyed. The kids enjoyed the school playground right next door. The location was prefect for our stay. Thanks

    Accommodation is humble but all necessities are provided, including covered outdoor space and high-spec BBQ. We also enjoyed the complimentary bikes. Excellent location. Walking distance to Ohinetonga domain and Whakapapa river
