Lakeside apartment, Taupo

 Great location! Would book it again. 

LAKEVISIT -Luxury-Central-3bdr Modern Hol Home

 Great property and is presented as described in the booking. Well managed with very prompt responses to queries. We were a group of ladies on a weekend away who are fussy about where we stay. We were all pleased when we arrived with the level of the property, the cleanliness and location were all great. We would definately stay again. Great sized property and location for families.

Beech Tree Cottage Taupo

 Although not a natural first choice and forced into getting a 'bach' because hotels were booked out for the Taupo concert this place was an awesome find. Only minutes from the centre of town at the very end of a very quiet dead end street. Very private backyard. All the mod cons one could possibly wish for and more. Spotlessly clean and tidy. We all enjoyed our stay here so much.
