  • What a great location and a neat set up as a house

    What a great location and a neat set up as a house. Very accommodating having an upstairs/downstairs area with 2 kitchen areas. Lovely views to the lake and very close to lovely walking/biking paths. Wish we could have stayed longer but we'll be back! Thanks Rhys for being a great host and being so accommodating with our requests. Much appreciated.

    Quiet part of Taupo, but close to town, a short stroll to swimming in the lake and walking, cycling, skating on lakeside walkway. Plenty of beds and rooms at the house, great deck warm and sunny. Loved it!!
