Shepherd House (Private geothermal hot pool)

 Awesome house, great views and so spacious. We had so much room and weren't all banging into each other. Bedroom spacious was great. Will definitely be back. 

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! 

Spacious home minutes to lake and town

 Awesome property for a large group, suited our family gathering perfectly. Brilliant location very close to the Lake and and not far from town.
