 Great house. Way more space than we needed. Well equipped kitchen. Very friendly and quick responding owners. 

 The property has one of the best stocked kitchen I have come across in a bach. The knives were sharp and every tool we needed was there. There was plenty of cutlery and crockery for all 12 of us. The beds were comfortable and the location across from the lake brilliant. During the first night the traffic noises from State Highway 1 bothered us a little, but from the second night on we had got used to it and didn't notice it anymore. Easy drive or bike ride into Taupo. 

 Close to the lake shore, well set up with BBQ, furniture etc... 

 The house is lovely! The location is great, close to the lake and with Taupo nearby. We enjoyed it very much. 

 This property has everything you want for a getaway. Large or small groups, there's room for everyone! The location would have been perfect had the weather been nice, but as we had rain during our trip we loved the games room and DVD's by the fireplace.
