Luxuriously appointed 3 bedroom chalet (see also our two bedroom chalet listing 4916) situated in the centre of our producing vineyard. Luxurious and private but just a few steps to our tasting room,cafe or a short walk to the lake or the beautiful Kuratau river where trophy trout await your lure!

Our cafe (open only during school and public holidays 10am till 4pm) Now operates a wood fired pizza oven, serves fine coffee, wedges with sour cream and sauces, freshly baked cookies and of course our fine single vineyard Pinot Gris, Blanc de Noir and Pinot Noir. Our flagship 2008 Methode Traditionelle and a Pinot Gris "Ice style" desert wines are superb! All this can be enjoyed overlooking our pristine vineyard from our wide second story cafe decks!

Take a kayak for a leisurely paddle down the river to the lake, fish,swim,sail,water ski or let us book you a rafting trip on the mighty Tongariro River. Try snow skiing during the winter months, it's just 45min to the Top of the Bruce at Whakapapa skifield from here.

Local walks,tramping, hiking (or "rambling" for you British folks) abound and we are happy to advise on the gear required and suitability for varying fitness levels.

Perfect accomodation for cyclists if you are involved in one of the many around the lake events.

Any help we can provide to make your stay at our place more enjoyable we will gladly provide - just ask! Wireless internet is available via "Zenbu" - check it out!

Helicopter flights either scenic or to get you to a secret fishing spot are available from the vineyard.

Guests will obviously need to shop for food - the nearest supermarket is in Turangi which is about 20mins drive to the South. There is also a well stocked local dairy and petrol station (The Omori Store). If you are arriving late please be aware that you will be hungry unless you have your own supply of food!

Please note our on site café is only open during the Summer school holidays and Easter.

Special conditions: A minimum stay of two nights is required Our chalets are unique and luxurious, situated in a working vineyard. As such there is occasional vineyard activity (mowing,pruning etc) which is necessary to maintain our grapes in peak condition. We will always respect your privacy and endeavour to keep noisy activities to a minimum. You are welcome to join in should you want the "entire" vineyard experience! Guests are expected to recycle and keep rubbish sorted, bins provided.

    This was our second stay at the property and it did not disappoint (again). We had a great time - lots of space for the kids to run around outside and the house is well appointed and spacious. We will be back again I am sure.

    The property was great; the house was large, spacious and well-appointed, and there was plenty of room for the kids to run around outside. The vineyard gives a restful outlook and its great having the café onsite.
