Carmel Cottage Trout Fishing Mountain & Bush Walks

 A huge section, so it felt very private and lots of space around. It was only a short walk into Turangi township thus a very handy location. 

Spacious Holiday House

 A great comfortable and warm house which was a pleasure to stay in. Has all the things required for a enjoyable holiday.

Alpaca Farm Retreat - secluded and private

 Great bach thanks 

Hilltop Views overlooking Lake Taupo

 Great views, comfortable property, fire kept us nice and warm. Third bedroom very small, just room for the bunk beds and nothing else but it suited us well enough. 

Magical Waterfront Property in Delightful Location

 Beautiful spot. Very tidy and had a lovely cosy feel. Sunsets on the deck were stunning! Hosts were very easy to deal with. Highly recommend. 

High above the Ida valley. Views to the Mountains

 Well looked after property and very clean. Highly recommend!
