Had a great stay at this hut, a fantastic place to base yourself if doing the Tongariro crossing, enjoyed the warm bath to relax afterwards!

About your host, Catherine

Catherine's Photo

Hi there, we're Mal & Catherine and we have been married 30 years with three amazing sons that have now fledged. We also have two beloved grandchildren who we treasure. Neither of us have been scared of change, however this challenge has not been for the faint of heart taking on a 75 acre bare bush block 820 meters above sea level. We can honestly say apart from rearing our family, this is the most exciting 'living the dream' challenge we have had and are experiencing. We're so proud of our slice of paradise and we would love to share our dream and gorgeous property with you!
