A lovely hideaway
We had a winter escape at Wayne's lovely property. While it wasn't in walking distance from the town, it was secluded, quiet and private. The house itself was large and well set-out and there was heaps of parking. We had a great time.
Excellent group of people exporting what the Ruapehu has to offer.
Clean and tide ,with good communication ,welcome back anytime and I would recommend this group to any prospective host.
A great place to stay to just get away from things. Wayne the host was brigand welcoming. Really cool house to stay in and great for young families like ours. Lots of room to spread out. It has everything you need. A great long week end. Thanks you.
Great location out of town, hassle free, plenty of space. Appreciated the warm fire on arrival
Warm and spacious.
Fantastic location as it was quiet (apart from the odd train) and interesting as well as being close enough to cycle to town. Kids loved it - great fire, has everything you need and plenty of wood for the amazing woodburner!
A great property
A great property. Friendly host - fire lit before we arrived and lights on. Superb location for the snow - 5 mins to bottom of the mountain road. Lots of space and a massive lounge with plenty of seating for 10 plus! Only slight downer was some of the view of the mountain was obscured by trees - get your chainsaw out Wayne!
The property was above our expectations would highly recommend families to stay...
