About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

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 and 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 and 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.

BOOK FOR 7 NIGHTS and ONLY PAY FOR 6!

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.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

Perfect house for our family and friends to stay! Lovely big outdoor area, and just on the river. Fire and plenty of room inside, and great food and coffee just down the road.

The batch had good features but was let down by the following: 1.

  • 2 of 5

The batch had good features but was let down by the following:

1. The place was dirty. I don't mean a bit of dust on the lampshade, but surfaces greasy, the bathroom not cleaned, crockery dirty and the mattress protectors on the beds too disgusting to mention

2. Unusable junk in the kitchen. Just because it's a batch doesn't mean you should kit the kitchen out with relics from the 70s. A measly $200 at Kmart would fix this issue. The microwave was unusable.

Shouldn't have to clean on arrival!
