Excellent house to stay at with a family of 2 adults 4 children. The spa pool was a treat and my kids were happy from the second we arrived until the second we left. Warm home with a cozy fire and heatpump. We will be back. Thank you

Nice location if you are skiing. Dishwasher not working and was not fixed after we raised the issue. Spa stopped working first night and not fixed for the rest of our stay (service person came 4 days later on our check out morning). TV in bedroom not hooked up. Fire was good, but house had an extreme moisture issue in the cold conditions (no dehumidifiers or air ventilation) which unfortunately for me meant difficulty breathing and consequent sleeping issues. Overall value was very poor for us.
We agree that Pikorua is in a great location and are so sorry that you were not able to organise technicians in time to repair the spa pool for your stay. The cosy fireplace and ample supply of wood are wonderful during the winter months. A dehumidifier is a great suggestion and the dishwasher has now also been repaired.

The accomodation was perfect for our trip to the mountains. We came down during the polar blast where the temps were freezing and we were thankful to find a hot spa waiting, the heat pump on and a fire set ready to light. The property manager was amazing and really made us feel welcome. Beds and pillows were super comfy, great shower, lovely big lawn to play on (we made a little snowman) and there's nothing like lying back in a spa watching the stars of which there was an abundance. Loved this place, will be back!

We had a great time with our friends. It is the perfect location for a ski weekend as we did, short distance from Whakapapa ski field. Board games and playstation available (unfortunately we were too tired to try the karaoke games). Perfect for a group of friends or a family with children.
