Of all the holiday homes I have stayed in this tops the lot. 4 finely appointed bedrooms offer plenty space, and the views are just to out of this world. Great area to stay as well but you must have a car to get around. Alistair the owner was most helpful with arranging mountain bikes for us to explore the many trails in the area.
Beautiful lake and incredible stars at night ! Highlight of our two week trip...

Hi Alex - Thanks so much for your fantastic review. We are delighted that you had such a great time staying at Dunalistair House.
I know you were keen to get out on the Waihaha mountain bike track with its unique water taxi as well, so next time you come back, I'll ensure that we fit that in the schedule as it is a very special trip.
Look forward to meeting you again in the future.
Regards
Alistair

“Wow! Amazing house in stunning setting!”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our two families stayed at Dunalistair House in Kinloch for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. The views were spectacular and we loved hanging out on the patio or in the family room, with both sets of large glass doors on either side open to allow the breeze to pass through. Four ensuite bedrooms were perfect for our group. The house was well equipped with everything you'd need to make yourself at home and cook meals and do laundry, play games, music, etc. Alistair is the perfect host, meeting us at the house upon arrival and helping us with any questions throughout our stay. He also arranged for helicopters to White Island - they landed right in the backyard! This is a perfect location from which to do the Tongariro Day Hike too. Alistair rented bikes for us which were delivered to our home with helmets and all. He also made dinner reservations for us. We loved his recommendation of The Tipsy Trout, just a few minutes away in Kinloch. All in all the perfect vacation stay!

Thank you so much for your delightful review of Dunalistair House.

I am extremely proud of the high standards that we maintain at the home with regards to ensure that it becomes a home-from-home for every individual guest that comes to stay here.

And your description of Kinloch as a course hits the nail on the head! Tough and Interesting are two perfect adjectives to describe it, but I have heard some others too...!

I look forward to welcoming you back again next time you visit New Zealand.

Best wishes,

Alistair Tod
