  • The property was ideal and we will return

    The property was ideal and we will return. Plenty of room to accommodate a large family or group of friends. Great situation with great views of the lake and easy access. Highly recommended for a lakeside holiday or accommodation in a reasonable distance to the mountains.

  • Good standard accommodation with magnificient views

    Good standard accommodation with magnificient views. Note - there are beds for 8 in the downstairs area but its pretty tight, with a double & single virtually in the entry foyer and a single in the living area. There are no corridors, upstairs or down, so all bedrooms are off living areas. But the location is marvellous - close enough to Taupo to drive in for supplies, but far enough to not be tempted to wander into town at will and spoil the laid back holiday vibe that the lake inspires.
