Craig suggested we have a BBQ - sounds good to me!

  • kebabs
  • onions!
  • mushrooms!
  • good steak perhaps
  • buns & rolls
  • hot english mustard, and other sauces


Please see the Google Calendar event.

Here is some information from the holiday home company that you may want to be aware of:

Please bring:
  • Depending on how many beds you are using, you will need to bring sheets for 2x double beds, 6 x single beds, and as many pillow slips as you need.
  • Towels, bath mats, flannels, tea towels.
Before you depart please check that you have left the Holiday Home in a reasonable state:
  • With all dishes done and a wipe down of the BBQ if you have used it
  • Cleaners will be through to wipe surface areas down, clean the bathrooms and mop throughout
  • Dispose of all your rubbish. The Taupo refuse tip is on Tauhara Rd. Please do not leave it at the gate waiting for collection day. A black rubbish bag is provided. Council stickers can be purchased at any dairy or supermarket.
Please note:
  • That if rubbish is not disposed of there will be a charge of $20.00 penalty fee incurred on your credit card that you have provided as assurance of bond.
  • No smoking inside.
  • When leaving please ensure all heaters are off, windows/doors are securely locked.
  • Please vacate the premises no later than 11.00am on day of departure. There will be a $20 charge if the house is not vacated by the allotted time.
