  • An excellent bach

    An excellent bach. We make regular trips to Turangi and this would be the best-appointed bach we've rented. Roomy, cosy, all the facilities you need, plenty of parking space for car and boat. Also very reasonably priced. We'll be back!

    The bach was warm and comfortable with many personal items that helped make it a really homely place to stay. The facilities were excellent and the bach would definitely be at the top of our list when next we visit the area.

    We had a wonderful time at the bach. It was roomy, clean and absolutely wonderful to stay there. It has a handy location for all the local attractions but were sorry that we did not book for longer! Thank you again for everything. It was definately worth it!
