Corena's Place - 5 mins walk to Taupo township

 Beautiful property we really enjoyed our stay! We couldn't work out how to turn the power on in the sleep out as the key for outside toilet wouldn't work! Wasn't an issue tho. We were more than happy with everything! Thanks so much! 

Sea views and rock pools

 House was lovely, with everything we needed for a fun family weekend. Fabulous bathrooms, house very modern lovely kitchen, and beautiful bedrooms one with a lovely sea view. Views from the living area and deck superb. We cant wait to rent it again.

Timeless Classic Meets Retro

 Cosy, homely, welcoming 

Activity Central  for Taupo/The Central PlateaU

 This house was amazing and outshone our expectations. We loved having it as a home base and we wish we could have spent more time there! It was magic arriving to a warm house with underfloor heating and everyone was blown away with how it was stocked with everything that we could ever need. After we finished the Tongariro Crossing, the boys were thrilled to be able to watch the cricket live on the projector while us girls went to Taupo for the afternoon. This would be perfect for a family too. 

Breathtaking views of Whangarei Heads

 Fabulous Bach, lovely comfortable relaxed feel! Highly recommended!
