About this Holiday House

Riverlea Cottage - cosy, comfy, quiet, central Short Description Comfortable, relaxed, home-style accommodation in central Taumarunui. Riverlea Cottage is 1.5km to the Supermarket & Cafes yet next to a farm-like reserve and just 150m from the Wanganui River. The Cottage has a new Kitchen & bathroom, a New Heat pump, and additional heaters. It has a good high-pressure shower on gas so the water never runs out, Free WIFI & Netflix. The Cottage has lots of Character but being 100 years old is lightly rustic. Character to us means it feels home like and you can feel the house probably has many stories to tell like any 100 year old house. To us the house has a positive feeling. That is our definition of character. The property has good off-street parking for 1-4 vehicles. The house is popular with contractors in town working. A minimum Double Vaccination for required to book. Late check-outs are available for weekend visitors. Sunday pack up, go out, we come in and clean, come back 4-6pm shower and have coffee leave refreshed - get home safe. Available for guests staying Friday and Saturday nights Everything you need to enjoy your stay is supplied. **Please note we have an under-bench fridge. On rare occasions, groups require a large fridge. If you need a larger fridge for your stay, please let us know when you book or enquire. This includes all Kitchenware, Bedding, and internal Laundry. Currently, the cottage is set up for six people via three Queen sized beds. We do have a bunk room but only mattresses and pillows are supplied for this room which contains 3 x double bunks.

The house owners are very friendly and always helpfull. The kitchen has been recently upgrade, but the house can get cold and not sealed. Otherwise all was in order.
Response from Owner
Thankyou for your feedback. Yes there is a draft under the back door that we will attend to. There is a new Heatpump that keeps the house warm if used

Overall a positive experience. The beds were comfy, house was clean and access to Netflix was a nice touch. The wifi and cell coverage can be a bit fickle but that's more to do with the overall area than the house itself. Only downside was not being able to have visitors over. We would've liked to have invited friends over but that's against the house rules. This would've made it feel like a home away from home.
