Via Del Lago - a place for family or friends.

 Fabulous place, very high standard and spotlessly clean. It was like staying in a 5+ star motel. Perfect for our family gathering over a long weekend in January. Our two and four year olds in our group had plenty of fun on the pirate ship playground and in the sandpit. Close to the lake front and not too far to walk to town if you want. 

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.
