We had the most amazing time at the Hut! It is a beautiful secluded spot close to lake Tarawera, ideal for a romantic get away. The hut has everything you need, a comfy bed and the decoration has some wonderful attention to detail. And not to forget the outside hot tub from which you can gaze at the stars at night. Highly recommend this place! - Amber

The hut is the most amazing place to visit! Such a romantic getaway. There is nothing better than sitting on the outdoor swing with a cheese board and a glass of wine. Dave and Angie were amazing and really friendly. We will be regulars each year as we didn’t want to leave so will be looking forward to getting away each year to enjoy the spa, fishing and great company. - Jaimie
