About this Holiday House

This older, original style character bach is a cottage for all seasons and all reasons. Not only is it ideally positioned for enthusiastic fishermen, being adjacent to the famous Judge's and Island Pools on the Tongariro River, it is also a wonderful, safe holiday cottage for families, with two large decks and large back lawn. The property backs onto the river reserve and it is easy to wander out through the section and down to the river to fish or to enjoy short or long walks along the river banks. The Fishing Bach is ideally located 35 minutes from Mount Ruapehu and the Tongaririo National Park and all that this area offers, with skiing and other outdoor pursuits such as biking and hiking, particularly the famous Tongariro Crossing. Nearby attractions include the wonderful Lake Taupo, (5mins), Hot Pools at Tokaanu (5mins) and the bustling tourist town of Taupo (30mins). There is also the Kaimanawa Forest Park a short drive away. Turangi has a New World supermarket and a small shopping centre which caters for most requirements, including the best meat pies. There is also a covered swimming pool complex and mini golf all within walking distance. The Fishing Bach is a self contained cottage on a large back section, a hundred metres from the road. It is ideal and safe for children to bring their bikes to and enjoy playing outdoors. We are happy for you to bring your well behaved pets which can sleep in the garage, which is part of the house. The Bach sleeps a maximum of 6 people with a queen size bed, 2 singles and a set of bunks - 3 bedrooms in all. It has a cosy living area with an open fireplace, and a separate dining room. It has a bathroom with shower/shub, a tidy, compact kitchen including washing machine and dryer. There is plenty of parking for cars and boats on the property. Bed linen is included. You will just need to provide you own towels. There is a cleaning fee of $80 per stay.

This is one of the loveliest holiday houses I've stayed in. Absolutely magic. The bach itself is clean, cosy and had everything we needed. Warm and comfy beds, with electric blankets. There was so much wood and kindling and we loved the open fire. So close to the river and the pathway is excellent for walks, and the property itself is charming and very private. The owners were super friendly and helpful. Thank you for sharing this special place with us, we hope to come stay again.
Such a lovely place, everything is clean and welcoming. Really nice location, easy access to walks and the village. The open fire was excellent and the wood supply plentiful. Fully equipped, lovely beds and bedding. Spacious and sunny, great deck,BBQ and room for everyone. Great for summer and winter. Owners very easy to communicate with and when I left something at the house, it was not a problem to retrieve it. Characterful but very tidy, and warm in winter.
