    “We had a lovely stay at 77 Goldfinch - Only a few things we would like to call out for improvement: 1) There were a lot of cobwebs on windows around curtains and under the bath - I don't think the cleaner has been very thorough with this.”

    Also things were quite dusty - think the blankets need a bit of airing and the curtains cleaned/dusted. 2) There was no grater - this made a few meals frustrating for us so would really recommend adding this as well as some more cooking utensils. 3) The TV remote batteries were dead - thankfully we technical enough that we downloaded an app on our phones to be able to still use the TV. Other than the above the home was beautiful! Nice and spacious, very clean other than those small things ...

Other than the above the home was beautiful! Nice and spacious, very clean other than those small things mentioned, lovely having 2 sitting areas and the fire was just great!! Perfect location to be close to all the things to do and the best part was the AMAZING water pressure in the showers :) And we particularly loved the chicken that came to visit everyday - the kids named her Miss Nugget <3

    Thank you Kathleen for taking the time to provide feedback and we are sorry that on this occasion the cleanliness of the property was not to our usual high standard. We will organise a deep clean to be done at the property to ensure more in-depth cleaning is completed to ensure this does not happen again. Property Owner

The property

Modern meets classic, welcome to The Goldfinch Retreat! This gorgeous base, with WiFi, offers ample space for groups and families and stunning mountain views. Relax in the natural light of an open plan living space which flows out onto the sundeck. With a seamless indoor/outdoor flow, you'll be sure to be spending time out by the BBQ in the warmer months, after a day of adventure and cold drinks to cool off. Spend time soaking up the morning sun that pours into the lounge with your favourite book accompanied by a glass of red wine with the fireplace making sure the house is warm. Bedroom 4 offers the perfect spot for the kids to kick back and relax - with a TV in the room to keep them entertained for hours. Stay on-site and bask in the uninterrupted mountain views from the sun-drenched deck or head out on an adventure. There is easy access to the slopes with Whakapapa 45 mins away and Turoa just 20 minutes drive. Head into Ohakune town, only 5 minutes drive and explore the local shops and cafes or catch the shuttle to hike the Tongariro Crossing. The Goldfinch Retreat welcomes you!
