The space

Our house is a home away from home. Well appointed, warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It is "family friendly" with a park and playground right next door. The section is fully enclosed with fences. There is a spa pool which is always in good working order. The spa pool has a lid and a safety fence. There are indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and plenty of fire wood. There are many book and DVDs to enjoy. The kitchen is fully appointed, Nic and I both enjoy cooking! Two of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. There is a third separate bath room and toilet.

Guest access

You will be able to use every part of the house except for the garage. However there is still a covered carport and lots of other on site parking. there is also a small cupboard upstairs that is locked.

Interaction with guests

We are only a phone call away. Also we have locals who help us run the house, Kay our cleaner, and Richard our "fix-it" guy.

The perfect retreat after a long day of skiing! The fireplace was a dream, as was the spa. The beds were comfortable and the home was very well equipped. Easily accommodated 6 people without getting claustrophobic. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Would highly recommend!

We loved the spa after doing the Round Taupo race! We wished we could have used the gorgeous outdoor area with fireplace, couches and big garden but the weather didn't allow. Nice to have a pot belly too. Close to the river trail for walking/running :-)
