All the basic essentials are provided and the two cafes plus the butcher cater for your meals if you want time out from cooking.

The river and the beach are only minutes away making for a comfortable walk.

The location of the property is excellent, and not too far from our whitebaiting spot.

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property is excellent, and not too far from our whitebaiting spot. Easy walking distance to both Cafes. We really ejoyed our stay. Caught some Whitebait, and had a lovely relaxing time. Enjoyed being able to light the fire on Saturday night, it really warmed the house up.

On leaving, we got to Te Kuiti and remembered that we had left a few items in the fridge, some Avocados, Tomato sauce, cheese, Yoghurt, butter. I hope that someone enjoys what we left.
