Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

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

Shepherd House (Private geothermal hot pool)

 Excellent accommodation. We had 10 adults and 2 children staying and we all fitted in more than comfortably. Liked the 3 bathrooms/toilets. Nice and roomy!! Kitchen modern. Safe backyard for the children. If we go back to Taupo and need a place to stay, this will be it!! Highly recommended.

Spacious home minutes to lake and town

 Great place to stay, perfect for that weekend in Taupo, thanks we really enjoyed our stay. 

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! 

Ultimate Taupo event home

 Wonderful house in an awesome location, meet the hosts and they are lovely people. Would recommend this property to anyone looking for an upmarket location. 

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.
