Great house for a large family group or a group of friends. The house is located only a short walk from town and has off street parking for several cars as well as a garage . The main living area has plenty of seating for all in the lounge and doors opening out onto a huge deck with BBQ and out door seating, great views of Mt Tauhara the lake and Taupo town from the deck. The kitchen, dining area, bathroom and 2 bedrooms are also on this floor. The master bedroom has access to the deck. Downstairs to a large lounge area with additional TV and 2 couches that fold out to beds. There are 2 Queen bedrooms and a bunk room for the kids. Another bathroom and access to the garage. The fire is located downstairs and a fan system moves the warm air upstairs. The fire also heats the hot water so hot showers for all.

 A nice big house for a group stay. There were quite a few dead bugs around. Would have been good if these were cleaned up prior to our arrival. 

 Great time had and with three families staying it was laid out perfectly for our needs. Only comment would be that a note about the fan and putting it on to heat the house when the fire going would have been great - our second night was much warmer! Would definitely stay again. 

 Overall happy and would stay there again. Great living area, good quality beds and easy to heat. But there was no hot water when we arrived (and the cylinder was turned off), only five dining chairs at the table, lots of cockroaches, freezer full of other visitors leftovers, and the BBQ area didn't drain so couldn't be used as it was a large puddle (a winter issue). I know this sounds harsh, but most of these issues could be resolved very easily making this property the nine to ten it deserves. 

 Great property for a group. We wanted to be walking distance to the town. We weren't expecting the level of comfort, space and views - would definitely go back! Does get very hot in the top bedrooms. The bunk beds do squeak - perhaps some CRC might fix? Otherwise, highly recommended. 

 Great place to stay, plenty of room for large groups. Walking distance to town and lots of fridge space is a real bonus
