Guest reviews for Chalet Mahuta

Stayed February 2022

Really nice funky house, cool layout with games room downstairs. Nice big balcony with great view of the lake. No wifi so it’s nice to switch off and have a relaxing weekend. Only downside is there were a couple dead cockroaches when we arrived and only 4 rolls of toilet paper for 10 people staying 3 nights, disappointing having to drive all the way into town and buy some considering how much you pay. Other than that it’s a amazing house and great for big groups.

Highly recommend this chalet to stay in. Very clean, great beds and bedding, good size rooms. The free standing fire place is amazing. Having 10 of us was not a problem. Had plenty of hot water for showers as we were staying here because of the Marathon. Off street parking accommodating 3 vehicles. Thanks for a wonderful stay.,

This is a huge house. We had two families (4 adults and 5 children under 11 years old) and there was still space to fit more comfortably. The house itself is a nice mix of modern comforts whilst retaining original features (original wallpaper etc) to make for a characterful and comfortable bach. We appreciated the down duvets on all the beds rather than cheap synthetic ones for instance. The rumpus room was great to offload the kids to whilst we cooked dinner or relaxed. There are two bathrooms so no waiting for others. The fire cranks out the heat, whilst there are additional heaters in every room. The deck and bbq would be great in summer, and being across the road from the beach is a bonus.

Enjoyed our stay, great tidy house and location. A good user friendly contactless system while there is Covid.

We had a wonderful stay, the fire was fantastic & so was the view over the lake to the snow capped mountains. Would highly recommend to anyone.
