Kōwhai Hideaway is a warm and convenient location near the Tongariro River. With Hydro Pool 150m away it is great for fishing.

Just renovated with double glazing and upgraded insulation, Kōwhai Hideaway has a well equipped kitchenette. With airconditioning, comfortable beds and a pleasant garden outlook, tranquility is supreme.

Kōwhai Hideaway is a downstairs apartment underneath Piwakawaka Lodge. The 2 can be rented together for large groups.

The space
The 2 bedrooms are generously sized, one with queen bed and the other containing 2 king singles, all with electric blankets for a great sleep after your day’s adventures. A portacot is available for use.

The kitchenette has fridge, microwave and benchtop oven plus small appliances and dishes, cutlery, condiments etc. Tea and coffee are provided. There is no full size stove.

If the weather permits, cook outside on the stone barbeque and eat alfresco, surrounded by native trees and in serenity.

Heating is provided by the airconditioner which can be supplemented by panel heaters if required.

Kōwhai Lodge is well away from the state highway and experiences no road noise.

This is an ideal location for the serious (or not so serious) angler with the Hydro Pool at the end of the street, only 150m away, and a fish cleaning bench available should you catch a trout you just have to keep!

If fishing is not your thing, Kōwhai Hideaway is the perfect base for mountain adventures, white water rafting, water sports and biking. The fabulous Tongariro bike trail runs past the back boundary - so easy!

I travel frequently for business and recreation. I enjoy reading and the outdoors, hiking, movies, motorcycling and mountain biking. I like meeting people and hearing of their different experiences.

Fiona and I have used Airbnb extensively during our travels. We’re looking forward to hosting you at one of our two great Tūrangi properties - Pīwakawaka Lodge and Kōwhai Hideaway.
