 Very nice accommodation and great location and view. Didn't even want to come back home after the great stay. Would recommend to anyone interested in holidaying on Taupo.}

 Location, location, location! Wow what a view! Great 'bach' with all the mod cons needed, good sized bedrooms, use of a gas bbq, just a really comfortable place to stay. Right across the road from the lake, close to cafe l'arte (great cafe), only a short drive back in to Taupo. Great holiday location if you want to get away and relax. 


 This bach is fabulous it has a fantastic view of Acacia Bay and everything you would want for a trip away. You can walk right out the door, across the road to the beach. We were very impressed with the features and available amenities at this bach. Would definitely stay again.
