Stayed July 2021

Brilliantly appointed house for a large group. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book the property again!

Stayed December 2020

We had a great Christmas holiday here. The location is amazing - right on the Waikato Huka trails, so great for dog walking, running and cycling. Also really easy to walk into town or get to a super market. The property was clean, well looked after and a good size for 4 adults and 2 kids. We would definitely stay again.
