Charming character kiwi bach beside Cherry Tree Reserve - 1/2 minute walk to the Tongariro River - excellent fishing, fabulous walks, mountain bike tracks - quiet laid-back holidaying, or full-on activities if you prefer:

White water rafting, 18 hole golf course, horse trekking, hot pools and fascinating Trout Hatchery all nearby.

Mountain Views, 1/2 hour to ski field, 1/2 hour to Taupo. 20 minutes to start of Tongariro Crossing - one of the top 5 one-day treks in the world! 5 minute drive to Tokaanu boat ramp on Lake Taupo.

Great local cafes - world class coffee & food available at The Creel (almost next door), rock climbing wall, swimming pool complex, mini golf, comprehensive supermarket all in walking distance.

Bach has grunty woodburner providing unlimited hot water; electric blankets on some beds, duvets & pillows supplied, but you will need your own sheets, pillowcases and towels.

Several board games for the children. The pantry is full of all the staple items - Tea, Coffee, Milo, flour, sugar etc. You are welcome to use anything you find. We only ask that if you finish something in the pantry, please replace it. Washing powder and dishwasher powder, detergent etc are all there.

We have some very 'rustic' ancient bicycles in the shed you can use. Ample parking for boats and cars.

Please note: This is a cosy, quirky family bach - not a sterile 'hotel style' accommodation.

Special conditions: 2 night minimum stay. 1/2 Deposit payable on confirmation of rental - balance payable before rental period begins, unless otherwise negotiated - Direct Credit to our bank account. Strictly no smoking inside bach - thanks. Guests not to exceed 8 - it places too much strain on the bathroom facilities! Linen is available on request @ $25 per person.

    Great property with everything we needed for a weekend of fishing, very close to the river

    Great location for kids right next to open space and easy walking to the river. Unfortunately there was no fire guard and our child tripped on to the fire and was badly burnt . I also noticed that the property needs smoke alarms. These are issues that are easily resolved and I am sure the owners will sort ASAP .

    Owner/manager responds:

    I am horrified that your child was burnt by our woodburner - we have never had an issue & as we have no small children it never occurred to me! I will investigate a fireguard for the house asap. However there is a smoke alarm installed in the hall above the doorway - well within the 3 metre requirement from all the bedrooms.
