    Very quiet, private and peaceful. Had all the amenities required - apart from a hairdryer! :)

    Lovely house. Very spacious and warm. Nice quiet rural location. Location indicator on the map is a bit misleading.

  • This is a lovely place to stay

    This is a lovely place to stay. Quiet and well back from the road and with very good amenities. We found it ideal for an extended family group. i.e. Grandparents, Parents and Grandchildren. The location marker shown on the bookabach site is a bit misleading. Bach is near Ohaupo end of Kaipaki Road.
