  • Nice place to stay and excellent value for money. Don't expect 5 star accommodation - it is homely and comfortable. We were is the cottage and not the larger lodge. Missed a couple of things - an oven (i know sounds weird but i had brought meals that needed to be finished in an oven and assumed there would be one.) and veggie peeler! surrounds are peaceful and the location is very central to other activities like bush walks, jet boating etc. . 5

  • Wonderfully lovely mornings, nice and quiet, surrounded by nothing but nature. The cottage itself was quite homey with all the furnishings of home. Deck outside could use a little cleaning and drive up the hill was not the best. . 5

  • We had a peaceful relaxing memorable stay. Les and jenny were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The drive to the cottage needs attention to make car friendly. Initial disappointment at the outside appearance and the need of some tlc ( unit not as clean as we would have appreciated it to be. Outside veranda full of dust and cobwebs - also some on ceiling of the inside of the cottage - edge of carpeting in the bedroom very dusty). However the views, tranquility and peacefulness more than made up for whatever , in our opinion, we thought needed attention. 5

  • Great place to stay in! the driveway is very tricky (especially in winters). Very helpful and friendly caretakers, jenny and les. However, would suggest the owners to do some work on the driveway to be a little driver friendly. Would love to come back. Once again, many thanks jenny & les for your warm and friendly help :). 5

  • We loved staying at the cottage. Jenny and les were super lovely and accommodating. The cottage was perfect for us, including our big german shepherd pup who loved roaming around the area. We will definitely be keen to stay again and take in more of what taumarunui and its surroundings have to offer. Thanks to jenny and les again who are just so friendly and added to the great experience we had :). 5

  • Not much to look at from the outside, but cosy indoors. Lovely and quiet. The driveway is tricky, particularly in a low vehicle, but you get used to it. Good value for money. Would definitely stay again. 5
