Dear Martin, we were so happy with the amount of space and heated blankets and most of all your patience and flexibility with us getting lost and calling you at midnight to sort things out! Thank you for being so helpful and understanding. We had a fantastic time staying at your cabin :)
Excellent family cabin. Very comfortable with beautiful setting. Enjoyed kayaks, nature walks and visited nearby Buried Village with spectacular waterfall. A great holiday!
Martin and Caroline was awesome by having everything prepared for our arrival. It was not difficult to find the place and aal the instructions are clear. But what a magnificent and beautuful surroundings we found our selfs. A great place to stay for the larger families. Very clean and well finished cabins/batches, very warm for winter stays. We will go there again , we needed more time to do more activities such as kayaking, tramping etc.
The reservation was canceled 88 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Great for the whole family, so much fun, lots of things to do!! Thanks so much!!

About the Host, Martin
Hi Everyone, I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce ourselves. My Wife Caroline and I are originally from the UK and were first introduced to the pristine area around Lake Tarawera when we visited New Zealand in 1999. Now, many years later, we live in Auckland and along with our children, Andrew, Michael and Juliet. It’s wonderful to have our own spot by he lake to visit and enjoy with our children, friends and family!
It would be wonderful to be able to share our slice of paradise with you - we also have another cabin next door called the Cheeky Tui for extended groups of travellers.
Kind regards, Martin, Caroline, Andrew and Mikey
