“Michelle’s place is absolutely fantastic and was close to the start of our hike at Tongariro National Park. Her place was so clean, decorated nicely and as a bonus she left us a nice basket of snacks and other items for a light breakfast. We also thought the handwritten note and box of chocolates for our honeymoon was a very sweet touch!! Thanks for a great stay!”

“This home is wonderful and modern and Shona provided clear and prompt communication. It was well stocked and we were surprised that she even stocked the cupboards for us. Thank you for also accomodating our last minute additional guests. We can tell its a family home and we used it for our family. The board games kept the kids busy and entertained and they loved the bunk beds. They felt like they were camping 😊 HIGHLY RECOMMEND 12 SNOWMASS!!!!!!”

“I would have loved to stay longer than 1 night at this beautiful location, but my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the time that we did have here! The view was even more glorious than expected and we soaked it up as much as possible. A completely unexpected delight was the sweet and cuddly sheep, Jigsaw, who became our fast friend and greeted us each time we walked out the door. The horses were also very sweet and came up for greetings and scratches. The lovely kitchen was perfect to make a quick dinner whilst admiring the sunset on Ruapehu. It was also a lifesaver to be able to easily do some laundry before continuing our travels! Thanks again for a great stay, Nicki!”
