There is ample room for a large group to relax, mingle and socialise or prepare for that wedding, concert, festival, function or reunion. The private volley ball court is a huge hit. We reccommend that you allow time to enjoy this property as many leave wishing they could stay longer.

    The house is perfect for big groups with brand new bathrooms and laundry. Great location to be able to see a lot of Bay of Plenty has to offer. Very close to The Mount, Tauranga and Whakatane. If you are looking for a place for 20 people with decent cooking, cleaning and social facilities then look no further.

    My family and I have had a beautiful time at the winter house. It is a spacious home. And just what our family needed and this moment in time. Beautiful facility and loads of space, beds and bathrooms. I would highly recommend this house to other big groups.

    The property is a fantastic option for big groups. It was perfect for our large family get together. The house has everything that we required and nothing we didn’t. All rooms very perfect for our large family and still a lot of space. Kitchen is perfect for big cooking of large numbers.
