We are located 5.5km from Te Kuiti. Close to the Waitomo Caves, easy access to Westcoast beaches, Mt Ruapehu, Lake Taupo and Rotorua. We are a well travelled middle aged couple who are happy to share their lived in home,it is warm, quiet, comfortable and realistically priced, comes with two very friendly cats who love visitors. And occasionally a dog. We are able to accomodate two couples travelling together if prepared to share bathroom. Second bedroom doesn’t have the view of the main room.
“The best stay ever! Highly recommended. The view is stunning, and most importantly outstanding hospitality from Laurel and Dave! We were welcomed with hot tea and cookies after our Waitomo caves adventure! Laurel helped us to heat up our dinner. The bed was so comfortable, shower room was great and there were alot of thoughtful touches! (: Laurel even has great space in the fridge to store all our food and she gave us a Ice block to keep our cooling bag cold. You can't ask for a better host! The breakfast was great too, with hot coffee, hot toasts and pancakes, cereals and many jams for you to choose from! (: most importantly, Laurel spends time with us, shared with us local tips and stories. We really enjoyed our stay here!”
In rural Benneydale, the Bike Bach is 'a touch of class in the country.' The whole house is divided into 2 separate rentable units. On one side the Queen/twin studio unit - Pricing is based on filling the queen room first. The other side - a Family Unit ideal for 4, see our other listing. Free use of mountain bikes are available for guests for an amazing 1hr ride through spectacular countryside seldom seen by the general public. It is an easy energetic ride for all, see photos / details below.
“We had a very comfortable stay at the Bike Bach before the Timber Trail. Carolyn gave us very accurate instructions and great communication.”

“It was a great stay. We booked last minute and Janet was so helpful and fast. Thanks a lot! Janet is a really lovely host, helps you with questions. The locations is perfect to go to the caves. Everything so stylish and clean. We got eggs and fresh milk and tasty muffins. Incredible.
