The ultimate escape for the whole family awaits! Welcome to Rapid River Retreat!

Sleeping up to eight guests, Rapid River Retreat is an excellent base for friends and family who are keen on adventure, or just ready to relax in a home away from home.

From the moment you walk in the door there's a welcoming and spacious atmosphere at this Turangi accommodation. From the modern appliances in the fully equipped kitchen to the comfortable furniture and homely furnishings, everything will be sure to impress.

The wooden accents throughout the house create a lodge-style feel, perfect for cosying up by the fireplace, and the complimentary WiFi will be great when it comes to sharing today's great holiday snaps and planning tomorrow's adventure!

The outdoor spaces at Rapid River Retreat are private and peaceful, which offers a haven of serenity and loads of room for the kids to play. The open fire outside will be a great place to toast marshmallows and make life-long memories.

Just a hop, skip and jump outside and you'll be surrounded by lush native bush, with access to the Tongariro River Trail and top fly fishing spots just at the end of the street. Get the adrenaline pumping with white water rafting, or find the catch of the day on one of the many local fishing tours.

Take in the incredible views of the Emerald Pools while you walk the Tongariro Crossing, situated only a 20-minute drive away. After a long day of hiking, soak in the Tokaanu Thermal Pools which is only a six-minute drive from Rapid River Retreat.

For an unforgettable escape to Turangi, Rapid River Retreat welcomes you!
