Lovely stop at the end of the Forgotten World Highway! The room was practical, the house very clean and most importantly, Hana and Ian are very lovely people! I enjoyed my stay and chats with them, even though it was all too brief. I definitely recommend staying there :) Thanks for everything Hana!

Hana and Ian made us very welcome and I had a nice chat with Ian over a cup of tea in the evening. The self-serve breakfast was good, with homemade fruit yogurt. They supplied everything you could wish for and the stay was very good value for money. Thank you both very much!

Perfectly wonderful hosts and has to be the best value for money we have ever stayed at. Appreciated the conversations, local knowledge, able to make a cuppa whenever, breakfast etc etc. The accomodation has a bathroom with a toilet in that room and also a seperate toilet. The box shelves in our room were perfect for storing our stuff. We stayed on two seperate occassions and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Clean, tidy, homely, and lovely.

I work in hospitality industry at Mt. Ruapehu area. I love all sorts of outdoors activities. Telemark skiing in winter and disc golf and hiking in summer. I like cycling also. My husband Ian has motorized bike and lately he got electrick bike. He loves it.I like traveling on budget off beaten track which is adventure itself. While traveling with my husband we used to stay at the backpackers then we discovered Airbnb . We enjoy interaction with people at our place and while we stay at someone else place also.
