Tui's Rest - Home away from home

 Had a great stay in Taupo. The house was spacious and comfortable for 10 of us. Has everything we needed and location is a short drive to main town centre. Highly recommended.

Taupo Lakehouse on Heuheu Street

 Wonderful home, perfect location for our summer concert. Immaculate presentation and great size - 3rd year running we have rented this house and we hope to be able to rent it again! many thanks Justine Grant 

Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

 Fantastic facilities. More than enough room for our group of 12. Close to town. Would definitely stay again :) 

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. 

Shepherd House (Private geothermal hot pool)

 Excellent accommodation. We had 10 adults and 2 children staying and we all fitted in more than comfortably. Liked the 3 bathrooms/toilets. Nice and roomy!! Kitchen modern. Safe backyard for the children. If we go back to Taupo and need a place to stay, this will be it!! Highly recommended.

*LAKE VIEW  @  APARTMENT 2*  $110 - $120 +

 The location was amazing, right on the lake front with only a short walk into the main town centre in Taupo. The apartment was well setup with all the neccessities provided for.
