Rustic alpine retreat
This property is an authentic cottage - not polished and modern, but full of character. For just one night there is a bit of a process to follow to get water running, but the instructions provided are good. The owner David was also promptly in contact to check that all was well. I did find the number Homeaway emails over the top though.
Classic old Kiwi batch. Warm and comfortable. An extra power point in the kitchen would be handy, but you can get by. The fire works well and there is plenty of dry firewood, it pretty much has everything you need apart from bedding. great spot set amongst the trees. we would happily stay again.
Loved it, thank you!
Fantastic good old bach. Well equipped. Great communication from owner. Had a lovely peaceful weekend in front of the fire and by the lake.
Awesome wee cottage
Fantastic place to stay.
Owners had great communication.
Only reason why I didn't give it five star is because I like been realistic, something has to be top notch for five star, but also we were not paying for 5 stars either,
Had an awesome stay and would recommend this Bach to anyone.
Fantastic bach experience
A quaint little bach in the trees - perfect for a stay in this area! 5 min walk to the shops and Lake Rotoiti, and plenty of rooms for friends or family. A cody little place, you will not regret it!
Bach old traditional type rather dark, damp and very quirky. Host was very good and welcoming. m
Quirky old traditional NZ bach. Needs updating of kitchen and bathroom. Wood stove very necessary for heat certainly in winter. The entrance needs tree and scrub clearing to allow better access and parking. Operating directions and power turnon need to be clearer I own a bach and thus understand systems but many may not. You need to slide over off power box on outside of building then turn on small main switch, try this in the dark! No photos of bath or kitchen on website likely due to their condition, existing photos of outside and inside correct but did not show other key areas. I would rate cottage as a 2.5 stars only.
We are sorry this overseas guest did not find the cottage up to expectation.
It is clear in the website description that it is a traditional batch and happily used by our family since 1960. We like to encourage families to the National Park and children are free. Most visitors have been delighted with their stay and modifications to kitchen or bathroom, they say, would degrade its authenticity.
