Tui's Rest - Home away from home

 Great size house for 10 of us. Great quiet area and very private. Was good to be about 5min walk away from the lake specially on those hot days would like to stay again sometime in the future. Recommended to stay. Thanks

75 The Bach - Lake Taupo

 What an amazing holiday we had here! The place is immaculate, well equipped and great for our large family. Views are fantastic and the pool was so lovely in the beautiful climate. Owners were easy to reach with any queries. Would highly recommend this peace of paradise!! Very secure grounds so great for kids too.

Napiers large quiet family friendly holiday home

 A wonderful place to stay with everything you could need on holiday. The children just loved the dart board and babyfoot and were playing with them all the time. The place is fully secure as we brought our puppy with us and she couldnt get out. Plenty of hot water when your are many and a great central point to visit around. Highly recommend. 

Bike to the forest and mountain bike trails

 The location is perfect - half way between town and the Redwoods. The house is perfect for what we wanted. Until next time......
