Winters Summer House @ Waihau Bay

 We had a large group of 6 adults and 6 kids staying at Winters along with 3 boats. No problem we all fitted comfortably and had a great time. The gazebo on the front deck (and the Bbq) was just great. We cooked and ate all our meals and spent many an hour recounting the days activities out there ?? 

Luxurious Farm Stay - near Ohakune

 The house is well set up & easily accommodated our 2 families. The location is private, with good swimming & fishing nearby - highly recommended! 

Stunning views across the country and out to Ocean

 Great stay! Highly recommend staying

 Fantastic property for our two families with two bedrooms upstairs and two down. Had absolutely everything we needed including toys and puzzles for kids and a greatly appreciated air conditioner (heat pump in winter) for some very hot days! Close to town and short walk to river. Great place. Highly recommend. 

Beachfront, brand new, big views, north end.

 Excellent location, good lay out. Very nice living areakitchen that worked well for 2 families. Only complaint would be single beds and double in main bedroom pretty uncomfortable. 

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.
