Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

 The house suited our needs for our Great Lake Relay Team, the location, off street parking and the two bathrooms were a real help. There was great communication in setting the rental up and arranging to meet to hand over keys. Will definitely be in touch for next year’s relay! 

Big home, big views Lake Taupo

 A nice big house for a group stay. There were quite a few dead bugs around. Would have been good if these were cleaned up prior to our arrival. 

Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

 This is a great house - it is seperated into two units (both with kitchens, bathrooms & toilets) but worked fine with one big group. Everything you could possibly require was there and VERY CLEAN! Thank you! 

Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

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

Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

 Good central location. Downstairs of property only accessible via outside stairs (not so much of an issue in summer, but could be in winter). This should be included in the property description. The cleanliness of the downstairs flat was questionable, but otherwise a good sized property for 2 families to stay comfortably. Oven and dishwasher upstairs probably need replacing! 

Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

 Lots of parking space, easy access and central to all the activities in Taupo. Awesome place - well kept property and house.
