 Quiet and close to town, nice gardens and view of the lake, comfy beds and the biscuits went down well.

 10/10 we just adored this property. It was perfect for the two of us but could definitely fit a few more in if necessary. It was lovely and clean, and quite spacious too. Lake views in the morning were wonderful, nice location. We will definitely be back. Thanks Pam A+ 

Bliss - Taupo Holiday Home

 Beautiful views and lovely garden. Upstairs living space is warm and welcoming. Downstairs, noticeably cooler as you'd expect of a house built into a hill. Wonderful large and comfortable open plan living area, opening out onto decks, with access down a staircase to the garden. Great family home.
