  •  A lovely modern house in a peaceful residential location. The 10 of us had a great time and enjoyed the space without feeling overcrowded. Cars are a must for this location - as there is not much in Motuoapa itself unless you have a boat or want to hire kayaks etc. However, it is worth it for the peace, and only a short drive to Turangi or 30 mins to Taupo. We enjoyed exploring the wider Taupo area (including National Park) without having to deal with the noise and bustle of Taupo town. 

  •  Wow!Our re-united family spent 4 nights in that house that was our first word after we entered the batch.Very clean,tidy,it has everything you might need whether it is a long or shot stay. Spotless kitchen with everything you need/much more.They even got baby's chair and a bed(very handy if you come with a baby).Great courtyard BBQ area- really enjoyed that one! Did I mention fire place and heat pump, double-glazing and huge dinner table. In short- great location and great place to stay!THANKS!! 

  •  the place was great, maybe just watch out for bugs at night.. or its probably just that season...(went there at november). overall it was pretty good! 

    •  That time of the year as we are on the edge of the Kaimanawa State Forest and the Pine Beetles are around about this time.
