Hilltop Views overlooking Lake Taupo

 Fantastic views, lovely garden and a short walk to the lake. Thank you for a relaxing break. 

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.

Tennis Court Family Home close to town and river

 This property is an excellent size and ideal for a family or larger group stay in Taupo. Just on the outskirts of the town but very easily accessible and can be walked if you wish. I would definitely stay there again given the chance

Sunny Apartment right in the heart of town.

 Perfect location, apartment was lovely. 

Stunning brand new holiday home

 Fantastic house for large group or family. Four Square across road a bonus and Supermarket just down the road. Karen is a great hostess and I would recommend this house if you are wanting to spend time in Taupo. Lots of parking and lawn area and just a short walk/drive to everything you need..
