River Cottage: Holiday Home near Lake Ohakuri

 We were a large work group competing in a race in Taupo. This property was perfect for fitting us all in (about 16 adults). The kitchen is small but well stocked, living room was comfy and the outside areas was perfect for evening drinks and a BBQ. All the beds are cramed in the rooms which is great for housing a lot of people for a low price and i supose if you are a smaller group, you will have your pick of the beds! Would recommend

Great views - great location

 Location was perfect, close to lake and town. With 6 bedrooms it was great for the 12 of us staying. Just meant very quick showers for everyone as we ran out of hot water, but that's no problem in the middle of summer when we utilised the lake anyway. 

River Cottage: Holiday Home near Lake Ohakuri

 Fabulous spot if you like been out of town. Parents and kids all had a blast. Great size section, awesome river for swimming and heaps of room in the house and sleep out. Kids weren't even interested in the TV! Had a blast. Thanks
