This location represents some the best rural outlooks in New Zealand.
The cabin is located on the banks of the world renowned trout fishing river the Wanganui.
On a clear day you have wonderful views of Mts Ruapehu and Ngaruahoe, and a glimpse of Tongariro. The cabin and surrounds are exclusively yours to enjoy as there are no close neighbours.

The space
The cabin is very private and yet close to many local amenities such as restaurants, bars swimming pools, and many local shops.
When you arrive you will be welcomed and guided to your accommodation and advised of what is available both on site and around the district.
The cabin consists of 3 rooms and can sleep 2 comfortably with 3 at a pinch. The bedroom/lounge has a double bed & a futon which converts into a king single bed. This is great if you are family or close friends as you will all be in the same room but it does reduce the space somewhat. There is also the basic sleep-out for the 4th guest, which is mainly used in the summer months.
There is a full bathroom and a compact kitchen both accessed via the front deck as you will see by the photos. The kitchen has a small fridge and a 2 burner gas hob, but no oven or microwave. The cabin is completely off the grid and is powered by solar batteries for lighting and gas for cooking, heating and hot water. There is a back up generator on site.
There is a fire pit outside with boulders to sit on and toast your marshmallows! Firewood, paper, matches, firelighters, etc are all provided. An outdoor bath completes the picture, with hot and cold running water where you can soak at night under the stars!
There is no wifi at the cabin, but very good cellphone coverage.

Guest access
Just metres away is the historic Wanganui river where you can enjoy trout fishing. We have a kilometre of river access on our property. When you arrive we will indicate the boundaries of our property which you are welcome to walk around.

Other things to note
It is our aim to make your time with us a memorable. We have plenty of attractions in and around our town.
The three mountains are only 40 minutes away, the Tongariro Crossing is an hour away, there are also bike trails and the Forgotten World Adventures rail carts leave from Taumarunui. We have an excellent golf course, a heated pool for winter swimming and Lake Taupo is only 40 minutes away. Te Kuiti and Taupo towns are just over an hour away.

Both my wife Annette and I enjoy hosting people from all walks of life. Our four children have moved on which has allowed us to develop a real retreat for visitors to enjoy. I have been employed by a local tourist operator as a guide and Annette is a bank officer in our town. My interests include squash, cycling and classic cars. We love the rural lifestyle and the area we live in. The mountains and the river are great assets to our district and we therefore want to share this with the rest of the world. We are look forward to hosting you if you plan to be down this way!
